About Mary Beyers

A 6th generation Eagle Harborite, I purchased my nearby home 40 years ago and later built this cottage for visits from my growing family who live elsewhere. I rent to guests during the weeks my family is not visiting.

Mary Beyers purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Mary Beyers chose Eagle Harbor

My body has had to live other places but my heart has always lived here, and I and many others always return. My guests, including many MI Tech University grads, tend to return year after year as they fall in love with the Keweenaw, its beauty and variety of activities.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests enjoy a relaxing vacation in a newer cottage with many windows to view spectacular Lake Superior. Many visitors are descendants of former residents and remember fondly visiting their grandparents as youngsters.

Keweenaw Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spot, with view of the Lake, walking path down to the rocky beach or walk to the lighthouse. So much to see in the Keweenaw! We enjoyed staying here!

Great place to stay, we would highly recommend it. Go to the jampot for the best muffins and jams. Fitzgeralds in Eagle River is a must for good food. Easy access to Copper Harbor.

The house was so comfortable....we went out every morning to peruse our surroundings, and it was breathtaking, from stone hunting, to shopping, to hiking and taking loads of pictures. Mary couldn't have been nicer, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay away...from our husbands! We only wished the fall colors would have been in full swing, but alas...we were a couple of weeks early!
