We love it here, you will too!

The King Copper Motel is the closest lodging to Lake Superior in the Keweenaw Peninsula with the largest, most breathtaking views of the beautiful water. Each room includes queen or king beds, beverage station, Dish satellite TV, full bath and endless ice. Refrigerators and roll-away beds are available for an additional charge upon request.

All pets are welcome with additional charge and asked not to be left alone in the room. There is a sandy beach that is great for taking a dip in the lake, catching fresh lake fish or setting kayaks/canoes out to sea. There is also free boat docking right outside your room.

We are open from April-October annually and can be reached day or night. We are also located next to the Isle Royale Ferry dock and parking for your convenience.


COVID-19 Restrictions

We take our guests’ and employees’ health very seriously and wanted to let you know about some COVID-19 precautions we are implementing this summer:

  • We are allowing more time between check-out and check-in to make sure each room is properly disinfected between guests. Please be patient if you plan to arrive earlier in the day.
  • We will be limiting our room service for guests staying multiple days to avoid employee presence in rented rooms. Fresh linens and garbage maintenance will still be provided. If you would like further services, please let the front desk know when you arrive.
  • To keep linens/bedding as clean as possible, we have installed a new building for used bedding that is completely separate from our clean supplies.
  • We ask our customers and employees to wear a mask when entering the offices/public indoor spaces.

Even though we have to make some changes, one thing that never changes is the beauty of Lake Superior. We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe, and we hope to see your smiling faces soon!
