Keweenaw lodge to reopen

COPPER HARBOR (AP) — An Upper Peninsula lodge that was built during the Great Depression will be open again next summer while a buyer is sought.

The Daily Mining Gazette reports that the board overseeing Keweenaw Mountain Lodge in Keweenaw County has voted to open the lodge and golf course.

Board member Bob DeMarois said keeping it closed during summer would not be attractive to a potential buyer. The property includes land, rooms, a nine-hole golf course and a string of cabins.
