Descripción

Laid- back venue,"Laughing Moon Cottage", built in 1866, is located in the peaceful Lake Superior beach town of Eagle River. This is a quaint, lazy little beach town and beach and attractions are within a short walking distance. The are 2 separate guest rooms available, each at $125/night which includes breakfast, and guests have the use of the lobby/living room and dining room and outdoor porch area, weather permitting.Guests must share a bath, however personal bath supplies are provided.

This home was built in 1866 by Joseph Blight, who established a fuse factory in Eagle River which made fuses for the explosives used in the copper mines in the Keweenaw Peninsula during the mining heyday. The family made their home here until 1969. Now a bed and breakfast, the home has the feel of a friendly little beach house and is furnished with antiques and flea market finds. A working artist's residence with separate living quarters and studio on site, the home showcases local art and artisans of all kinds and features a small gift shop.

Laughing Moon Cottage features 2 guest rooms with shared bath and communal downstairs lobby and dining spaces.The cottage is meant to be an escape from the stresses of everyday life, work, and technology taking you back to a simpler time when there was little to "unplug"--though wireless internet is provided. Playing cards, board games,magazines,and books are provided for your leisure in the lobby and guest rooms. An old-fashioned verandah which is open to the street, lake views, and summer breezes is furnished with comfortable furniture for relaxing outdoors with refreshments, a good book, or conversation. Coffee, tea, bottled water, and fresh-baked goodies for guests to help themselves available in dining room. It is hoped that you will want to take advantage of the beautiful area that is Keweenaw ("The Crossing Place") and experience what it is like to get out on foot, bike, kayak,or car to tour the many unique places that make it special. A brief brochure is provided to guests that showcases some of the attractions to help you get started. This bed and breakfast is currently only open seasonally from the beginning of June through the end of the second full week in October.

I will see you on check-in and will be there to serve you breakfast each morning at 9-10 AM or by special agreement if you have early departure times. I will be available in the mornings until 11 AM and available by phone during remaining hours and in event of any emergency.

Eagle River is a quiet little beach town bisected by a lazy river with frequent foot- and bike-traffic. It is extremely quiet, especially for sleeping and in the early morning--you may be startled to find the only sound will be the wind and waves and birdsong! The town is also the Keweenaw County seat with the sheriff's department and historic courthouse located just across the street. Laughing Moon Cottage is a three-short-blocks-walk to the lovely public sandy beach on beautiful Lake Superior where you can swim, bask in the sun, walk the shore, watch magnificent sunsets, see a gazillion stars, and the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). Gitche Gumee Bible Camp, a family-oriented summer camp is located just down the street. The town of Eagle River also boasts a small historical museum (as well as other nearby historic sites), picturesque waterfall, historic monument/bridges, and several businesses--The Jam Lady,a small shop selling homemade jams, jellies, syrups, and pickles made from local wild/tame fruits , berries, and produce; The Eagle River Store, which serves up hand-dipped ice cream cones, footlong hotdogs, and donuts--all made in the UP; and waterfront dining at Fitzgerald's Restaurant, which features wood-smoked BBQ, awesome desserts, micro-brews, and sampling flights of fine Scotch--all outside on the deck on the lake , if you like, weather permitting. The town is part of the the Lake Superior Circle Tour and is also within 30 miles of both ferries to Isle Royale National Park, the Keweenaw National Historic Park, both the Keweenaw and the Houghton County Historical Societies' museum sites, and the Fort Wilkins State Park museum complex.

Laughing Moon Cottage is located one block up from M-26 on a sidewalk-less street with mixed foot, bike, car,( and the occasional golf cart) traffic. It is 5-minute walk to the public beach,( where you may have campfires and picnics or swim), waterfall, museum. businesses, and summer camp.A small grocery store, where you can buy picnic supplies, beer/wine, is a 2 mile car or bike ride. There are many lovely places in and around the town where you may ride your bike as well as go out for a daily walk or run. In Michigan, the shoreline may be walked as far as the eye can see as long as you stay waterside of the "high-water" line and respect the property, regardless of ownership. There are wonderful hiking, biking (including "extreme" biking) trails and nature preserves abundant within close walking and driving distance. Mt. Bohemia Ski Resort at Lac LaBelle opens their chair lift in the fall for arial color tours. The Houghton County Memorial Airport (CMX) , 20 miles to the south, offers air travel access for both commercial (United Airlines) and private flights to the area and car rentals.

Some cell phones will not work in this area --the Verizon network is accessible. If you visit Copper Harbor, you must go up on top of Brockway Mountain to get cell service there. Most cell phones have reception on Brockway. The wireless internet available at Laughing Moon Cottage may not support streaming. The nearest hospital/ER is 15 miles away but first-responder emergency personnel are available through the Keweenaw County Sheriff's Department across the street from Laughing Moon Cottage.

Our trip to the UP was made so much better because we were able to stay with Betsi. She was such a friendly and welcoming host and made us feel right at home after a big day of skiing at Mt Bohemia. Anyone who is lucky enough to stay with Betsi should jump at the chance.

Short version: Laughing Moon cottage is a fantastic place to stay, with a host who knows how to do it right. Longer: Betsi helped make our first trip to the UP a great memory. Low key and low stress, she gave us just the amount of helpful tips we wanted. The breakfast was amazing and different every morning, with tea, muffins, yogurt smoothies, and fruit. We felt terrifically pampered, and would love to stay anywhere that Betsi was managing. My teenager even asked when we could come back! Don't miss the local monks' Jam Pot, and the beaches and hiking are fantastic.

Respuesta de Betsi:
Angie--so glad you told me about the bathroom door sticking--that was something I didn't know about. It should be a quick fix and I do appreciate the feedback because i want to make everyone's stay as nice as possible. Being a work-in-progress, such as the partially-finished painting and my quirky old windows, there are things that perturb me because i have had to do them as time and finances permit. Old cottages and houses are demanding mistresses, so to speak and vexing , at times but being able to fill them up with such wonderful people compensates and spurs me on! Just finished another piece of the lovely brioche you brought--you have no idea what a treat it is and how much I enjoyed it! Thank you again:)

We spent two nights at Betsi’s place in the Captain’s quarters. Such a lovely room in a pretty cottage in a quaint tiny town by the see, at least that’s how it feels to be by Lake Superior. Beauty and peace everywhere this part of the UP. The trail of the monks' is worth walking, it brings you to a creek, to waterfalls and it may reward you with thimbleberries, as it has rewarded us. The sunsets by the beach were spectacular. Betsi will give you even more recommendations of what to do in Eagle River and in the neighborhood. The lighthouse and maritime museum at Eagle Harbor are very interesting and further North there is Copper Harbor, a bit South you can go under the ground in Quincy Mine. You will learn where to get smoked Lake Superior Whitefish and make a picknick out of it. The best of all, you can meet Betsie and be pampered by her generous and kind hospitality, eat her scrumptious breakfasts and afternoon pastries. We feel that we have just parted a good old friend. We are looking forward to returning one day soon.

Betsi is a fantastic host and Laughing Moon Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. Betsi was great at coordinating with us prior to the visit, was a stellar host while we there, cooked amazing breakfasts, and even served us strawberry pie with homemade whipped cream at midnight when we came home from a 4th of July party! Laughing Moon is comfortable, and has everything you need: beach towels and toys, bathrobes, bath items, ... Mick Jagger even stays there! (He's the cat) Overall, highly recommended!
