Stroll down to Lake Superior where you can relax and watch the water lap up on the shoreline, enjoy the outstanding view of the Porcupine Mountains, and the breathtaking sunsets.

The rocky shoreline is a wonderful place to look for agates and unusual pebbles.

View the night sky filled with stars as the nights are very dark and you just might be lucky enough to see a spectacular show of northern lights over the water.

A Cottage UP North is located less than 1 mile from the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park where you will find trails for long or short hikes and scenic overlooks. The new pathway to Lake of the Clouds is easier to climb for viewing this lake nestled in the old growth forest and surrounded by wilderness. The Visitor Center offers interesting exhibits and there are special programs and guided hikes offered by the Rangers.

Visit Greenwood Falls just a mile from the cottage. Stop at the Ontonagon Historical Museum for a taste of the history of this copper mining and logging area and take a tour of the Ontonagon Lighthouse. Fall color is spectacular in the Porkies. Don't forget your camera as this area offers wonderful photographic opportunities in all seasons.
