Located about 100 yards from the Beaver Island Ferry, swimming pool, Cable TV, refrigerator, microwave, clean, everything worked. No complaints, we had unit 14. This is a remote island to relax. Great for off road bicycle riders. Spend at least 2 nights. A few restaurants nearby, beach about a block away, several kayak rentals and bike rentals nearby.

Very disappointed! Never had unit 6 before. Was sold as "sleeps 6" but only slept 4 with a couch. Shower door was off hinges. Not remodeled since early 70's. 40 years of visiting this island and our first BIG disappointment. We appreciate the charm of the units but this was just in a shambles and didn't offer the space it... More

Thank you for your review. We have forwarded your comments to the owner of Unit #6 and know that improvements are planned. Each of our Housekeeping Units are furnished and decorated individually by its owner. We are looking forward to hopefully accommodate you in the future in one of our other units. More

Great value, nice room, very clean. The person that worked at the motel was very nice and informative. Had a microwave and coffee maker in the room. Great view of the lake and easy access to main street.

Just spent 2 nights at Harbor View and thought it was excellent. We were the only guests ( since it is mid week and after Labor Day) and it was extremely clean and comfortable. Very nice grounds. It is directly across from the Ferry dock, which was perfect since we brought our car ( and had to be at the... More

The price for staying at this motel was conveniently low. While the room was obviously clean, the linens were worn, the bathtub drained SLOWLY and the tub faucet dripped water. We really missed having air conditioning and had trouble locating motel staff when we needed things for our room. Being situated right across from the ferry dock and in the... More

Appreciated the privacy of separate bedrooms. Bathroom was very basic. Newer television and furniture. 13 year-old appreciated the pool. Ceiling fan in the Living Area, Box fan for one of the bedrooms. Another box fan would have been nice or window AC units... Owner was very pleasant and helpful Great location for shopping, restaurants, public beaches.

This motel and suites is a mom and pop type right across from the boat dock. It is the only one with a pool. The pool is spotless! The rooms are in knotty pine up north style. They are clean and reasonable in price, but older in style. This is our second stay with them. Very convenient to everything.
