As I type this on February 20th, it’s snowing outside and there is more in the forecast. The area has received anywhere 180″ to well over 210″ depending on where it’s measured and the conditions for winter sports has been and remains excellent.
But like any business, we always need to be looking a little bit ahead and that means late winter / early spring when the weather and snow conditions become more difficult to predict causing the tourism traffic to the Keweenaw to diminish considerably.

This “shoulder season” between winter and spring is one of my favorite seasons up here. The first hints of spring and rebirth are in the air and the temperatures are typically much warmer with average highs ranging from the high 20’s to the high 40’s as you move into April. This creates beautiful warm sunshiny days on melting snow pack perfect for snowshoeing to the many local waterfalls that will be starting to crank up for spring. There is even a unique shore fishing opportunity in Copper Harbor for splake once the ice moves out!
This is also the time of year that we have historically tapped the maples on the property to make syrup. Last year, we added an awesome custom made syrup cooker (a.k.a. The KBC – kick butt cooker) to the mix so our batch capacity is much bigger now. If you book a stay while we are making syrup, we’d love for you to join in the fun and learn a little bit about the process (or teach us a thing or two!) and maybe even take a bottle home as a tasty souvenir!
The bottom line is, there is still “lots” to do in the Keweenaw Peninsula even after we’ve gotten through the heart of winter. In fact, if you make the trip up between winter and spring, it just may become your favorite time of year! Come and see for yourself!
