I have the little house open for rent this winter. $100 a night for up to 3 people, $125 a night for 4-5 people with a 3 night minimum.
We didn’t get off to a good start on our mini vacation. No one was around the Motel we were going to stay at in Calumet. I called the number on the door 3 times and we waited around for a few hours but no call back, so we drove to Copper Harbor.
Copper Harbor only has one place open for breakfast and one place open for dinner. Our motel does not get local channels so we were not able to watch the Packer game. I went to the bar and watched it until half time though. The bartender told me the local cable company was going out of business and everyone will have to go with satellite TV. The internet speed up here is a whopping .25gbps to I may be back in Bergland on Thursday before this actually uploads to the website LOL. Oh, and they have no gas either. Or cell phone service.
All in all we could piss and moan or just kick back and enjoy the UP on our own. I’m sure most of the businesses are doing the same thing we are doing, getting away for a bit before hunting and snowmobiling season starts. The UP is not the best place if you need amenities to enjoy yourself. But if you don’t mind just kicking back and making your own fun you will never find a more beautiful place. I went to bed at 10pm last night watching Grumpy Old Men, Becker was already in bed. I woke up at 5am, outside is a nice gentle rain, not sure how much riding we are going to do as I didn’t fill up the SxS before we got here. You think I would know better after living up here 8 years. But we really didn’t have any specific plans, we just wanted to get away. Not sure what we are going to do today, Sleeping beauty is still in bed snoring away. But in her defense it is only 6:15am.
I’m going to get a cup of coffee and a smoke and go sit outside under the eave and watch it rain. Later today I may go back to Hancock and get Becker a Motel room with a hot tub and a pool. I think she enjoys the quiet up here as much as I do, but I know she enjoys her hot tub too LOL.
