A wonderful surprise awaits guests at Al Tipton's River Cove Condominiums in Sault Ste. Marie. From the fully equipped kitchen to the comfortable and cheerfully appointed rooms, you'll be greeted by a welcomed freshness that invites you to unwind at the end of your journey.

Guests will find all the lodgings fully equipped, so just bring your luggage and food (should you choose to cook). The three available condo units (two on the second floor, one on the first floor) have well designed, compact interiors. The first floor unit is handicap accessible with no steps required for exit or entry. Each features a full kitchen including dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, stove and refrigerator as well as a complete assortment of utensils, pots and pans. There's a combined dining and living room, bathroom with tub shower and two bedrooms each with queen size beds. Ceiling fans in all rooms help to keep the interiors cool even during those rare, hot summer days in the Upper Peninsula.

All rooms are decorated in a contemporary nautical theme. This definitely sets the stage for the view seen from windows and doorwall. Here, across groomed lawns, you'll have a clear path to the river where the great freighters pass. Of course, you may prefer to watch from your private deck. If you do, be sure to bring your binoculars to check out the ospreys nesting on Sugar Island just across the river. Don't be afraid of scaring off the ducks meandering along the water's edge. They're happy to see you, especially if you're carrying one of Al's corn and seed buckets (found on each deck). Swimming is not permitted, but there is a dock available for your boat with a marina only one-half mile down the road.

When you arrive, we suggest you check out the black binder on the kitchen counter. In it you'll find the simple "house rules" along with descriptions and locations of area restaurants, maps and several recommended scenic tours. If you're feeling lucky, the Kewadin Casino is only two miles away. Also just down the road are the Soo Locks and boat tours. An hour's drive will take you to Taquamenon Falls, Whitefish Point, or St. Ignace where you can catch a boat to Mackinac Island.

The Tiptons welcome all to come and enjoy their scenic and relaxing accommodations. They do not, however, recommend you bring young children. There is no children's play area and the cold, deep river has surprisingly strong undercurrents.
