Open Year Round

The snow is coming down and we are excited to once again offer winter reservations. Winter is a beautiful and fun time in Copper Country and we don't want our customers missing the season. If you snowmobile, ice fish, snowshoe, cross country or downhill ski, our cabins provide a warm and cozy place to relax after your day of adventure.  

If you enjoy indoor activities during the winter such as curling up with a good book, putting together a puzzle or quilting (The Portage Quilt House is across the street), we have a place for you as well.

Passing the Torch

Former owners and longtime residents of the area, Tom and Marcy Romp, have hosted guests from nearly every state across our country. They bought and renovated the cabins in 1994. They created a place that guests love to return to year after year. 

In November 2019 Tom and Marcy decided to pursue retirement and sold Portage Lake Cabins to the new owners, Brian and Rachel Lamppa. The tradition of clean and friendly service lakeside will continue and this couple can't wait to meet you on your next visit.
