The Copper Cabin was ranked among the TOP 10 locations in the nation to enjoy the outdoors in 2020 **

The Copper Cabin is a completely self-contained off-grid hideaway situated just feet off the Montreal River in a pine and birch forest teaming with wildlife. Once you leave the road and the ATV/Snowmobile trail, you'll drive the two-track (or snowshoe) to the footbridge crossing the river and travelling by foot on up to the cabin in the woods. * This is a real wilderness destination that is not for everyone, but perfect for the adventurous spirit. Experience this comfy eco-friendly timber-framed abode complete with solar lighting, wood burning stove, convenient 12-volt refrigerator, indoor composting toilet, 12-volt entertainment center, water catchment/filter/dispenser system, antique gas cook top (sorry no oven) & more. Two large sleeping lofts have 1 queen bed, 1 double bed, and two futons. The space can accommodate up to 8 people and makes a restful getaway. The morning is welcomed in with views from the large Eastern window. There is a sauna/bath house currently under construction. Outdoor solar-lighted composting privy adds a second convenient toilet.

Thimbleberry, blueberry mingle along with Verbena, Astor, wild strawberry, and Lobelia along the forest floor and fringes. Miles and miles of flora and fauna for your nature-loving self.

Biking, hiking, snowshoeing, wildlife watching, hunting and brook-trout are all within steps of the covered rustic porch. Weber grill, fire ring with grill and picnic table invite you to the great outdoors where you can catch the Northern Lights in the super star-studded night sky. In the winter, the trees are dripping snowy frosting and paint this wonderland in opalescent beauty. You won't want to leave.

But there's so much in the area to customize your adventure--world-class skiing at Mount Bohemia, single-track biking in Copper Harbor and Calumet, kayaking, scuba, surfing, kite surfing, sailing, hiking, etc--so you'll want to plan time to venture out, or just plan your next adventure at the Copper Cabin.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE MAKING A RESERVATION. This is a true backcountry / wilderness experience,  with the inherent risks of wilderness travel. Sometimes the grass gets long, there is wildlife, and you're definitely a long way from room service -- but we believe that's part of the draw and what really shapes this unique experience. We do not offer grounds-keeping, linen nor cleaning service. Our friends at the Marquette Hampton Hilton do. Refunds will not be considered for mismanaged expectations, and any concerns can always be addressed with your host directly. 

* Travel from base camp to bridge approximately 3/4 mile. Travel from Bridge to cabin approximately 1/4 mile.

We do accept a 2-day minimum stay, but we try to check every first-time guest in personally. When we do, we make a round trip of 14 hrs and it would be helpful if you would consider a 3-day or more stay.

Amazing cabin! The space was so cozy and the sauna room is great. There’s a learning curve to operating some things but if you’re staying a few days, it’s beyond worth it!

This is a well thought out cabin with everything you need. It’s also in a great location if you want to explore the area. We have Verizon and had excellent cell service. Our family of four (including a 5 and 7 year old) were very happy with our stay. Linda and Darryl take good care of their people.

Great spot to relax, reset and re-ground. Comfortable and cozy with everything you need and nothing that you don’t. Secluded. Trails and a river to explore. Build a fire outside or inside the cabin or even in the sauna. Off-grid with lights, USB charging and compost toilet. Excellent communication from Darryl and Linda, they gave clear directions and also ran through how to use toilet, water pump, BT radio, etc. Wish I could have stayed longer, highly recommended.
