"Quiet Place to spend a week" Eagle Harbor by Toughluck

Eagle Harbor Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 21 photos

Small town life

You can pass through Eagle Harbor as just another lake front community along the shoreline. If you'll do, you'll miss the chance for a chance to become part of the Lake Superior life.

The main road runs through town, skirting the small harbor. You'll find few services and a few motels. But don't hurry. If you have time to spend the night, you'll enjoy the chance to walk along the wild lake shore of rock and the sandy beach of the town. You can walk anywhere in this town from anywhere. You'll meet people walking to the main restaurant from their lodging, rather then getting in the car.

Eagle Harbor Light

Once an access point to the Keweenaw Copper Mines, Eagle Harbor is now a quiet lake front community. The Lighthouse still stands, guiding small craft into this safe harbor.

Small Town - Directions still help

While it is easy to pass right through, it can take a little time to find the places of interest.

The town beach (one of only a few sandy places on this shore) is on front street. The entire length.

A motel is located along MI 26 to the east (right on the map).

The Breezes B&B/hotel is on the point juting into the harbor (Lighthouse rd) before the turn.

The Lighthouse is marked on the map
