On a whim to get out of town we headed to the U.P. With no clear direction we lost track of time. As this wasn't a planned trip neither were our accommodations, as the sun set we quickly realized we still needed a place to stay. What we hadn't realized was that many hotels aren't open very late for check... More

Small neat, clean rooms and cabins. Rustic, but cozy and comfortable. Owners on site. Wonderful restaurant, Harbor Haus three short blocks away. Great food and service, with a beautiful view of Lake Superior. Very small village with 85 year round residents.

Copper Harbor has no major chain places to stay - only a few motels. We were pleased with Bella Vista, and I doubt other places in town are better, but it is not luxurious (hence the 3 rating). We stayed two cozy nights in a very small room and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the town and countryside. Our room was very... More

Nice location right on the water. We were meeting family in Copper Harbor for the fall foliage. We got 2 of the last 3 cabins available which are off of the water, but not far. The floor in cabin 5 had a bit of a lean, but that added to the experience a bit. There is a fridge and ability... More

We spent 3 nights in cabin 7. Very comfortable queen size bed. The cabin was very clean and as others state, you can walk everywhere in Copper Harbor from this location. No cell phone or internet - but there are a few locations close by with it. Most places are closing for the season in another week, so we had... More

Recently visited Copper Harbor, Michigan. The Bella Vista Motel is right on the harbour though some rooms and or cottages have better views than others. The motel has several cottages, also standard motel rooms and another section called Isle Royale. I would recommend staying in the Isle Royale, 2nd floor # 4, as it is newly renovated and has a...

Right on the water with chairs for relaxing on deck, beautiful view, walking distance for meals and shopping. Was very peaceful and clean. Very friendly people. Lots to see and do in the area. Wish we had brought our fishing poles.

Bella Vista Motel was a delightful place in a beautiful area. The motel is a few yards from Lake Superior. I booked one of the cheaper rooms, which was located in the annex across the parking lot. The people working there were very nice. The room was spotlessly clean, had satellite TV, and was everything I wanted in a room.... More

Bella Vista is a clean family owned property that has cabin and room style lodging. The location is great right on the water of Lake Superior. No cell phone coverage here but the hotel does offer free wifi. We enjoyed our stay.
