Laurium Manor Inn

The year was 1908 and all over the Keweenaw Peninsula mansions were being built by the wealthy copper mine owners. But here in Laurium the largest and most opulent of them all was just being completed. Built for Thomas H. & Cornelia Hoatson, owner of Calumet & Arizona Mining Co., no expense was spared building this 45 room mansion. At a time when miners were making 25 cents per hour, this house was built at a cost of $50,000 and $35,000 of furnishings were added.
The Laurium Manor Inn is located in the heart of the Keweenaw Peninsula. Convenient for exploring Copper Harbor and Houghton-Hancock area. Only 12 miles from Michigan Technological University & Finlandia University. Keweenaw National Historical Park and Calumet Village is 1 mile from Laurium Manor Inn.

Laurium Manor Inn has been restored into an historic mansion hotel that has been welcoming guests since 1989. Our goal has been to create a welcoming inn that combines the best amenities from hotels with the comforts of a B&B.

Laurium Manor Inn is open until October 25 for this year. We plan to reopen May 21, 2021

Our Brochure


A full breakfast is included with your room. It is available in the dining room at Laurium Manor Inn from 8-10am.

Due to the pandemic and health department rules, we were not able to serve our buffet breakfast in 2020. We accommodated this by offering a ‘bagged breakfast’, which consisted of:  

  • Homemade from our kitchen:
    • Muffin or Coffee Cake
    • Egg puff pastry
  • Yogurt
  • Fruit
  • Hard Boiled Egg
These bags are made for each guest and placed in a refrigerator in the dining room for you to grab in the morning.
You can eat in the dining room, front porch or your room.
We will continue to make the evening cookies or bars for our guest. As always coffee, tea and hot cocoa are available at any time.
Each room has the option to not have a breakfast bag and we will discount the room night cost by $10.00 per night.
Having to make this change breaks our hearts, as our breakfast buffet has been a tradition here at the Laurium Manor Inn for 31 years. We hope to return to the breakfast tradition this season.

We are sorry that we have had to make this change and we will return to our buffet breakfast as soon as we are allowed.

When we are allowed to return to our normal food service, our Breakfast Buffet typically includes one of the following dishes which changes every day:

  • Rosemary Cream Cheese Eggs
  • Almond Poppy Seed Pancakes
  • Lemon Cream Pancakes with Blueberry Sauce
  • Sante Fe Eggs
  • Orzo Eggs with fresh Basil
  • Gingerbread Pancakes
  • Cheesy Herb Eggs
  • Pecan Pancakes
