What a delightful surprise! My husband and I stayed in the Wolf cabin, which had a separate eat-in kitchen and bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped--stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, silverware. Everything was sparkling clean with charming touches all over the property. The continental breakfast included delicious home-made breads and muffins. The property overlooks Lake Superior and is just... More

With a view of Lake Superior from an outside patio and garden and well-spaced cabins and rooms, this motel-and-cabin combo is a great place to stay when you're in Grand Marais. The main house serves continental breakfast and is where you check in. It is very welcoming and quaint - as well as a stones throw from the rooms. I... More

Our stay was three nights. Lake Superior and the beauty of the wilderness surrounds you. Our cabin was nicely decorated using a wilderness theme. It was equipped with almost every thing a person could need, dishes, utensils, etc. The bed was comfortable,there was plenty of hot water and the cabin was clean. I would have liked to have had a...

We have stayed at Hilltop on two separate occasions this summer in two separate cabins. Both cabins recently remodeled tastfully and very clean. Although I haven't been in all cabins, I am sure they are of ssme high stardard of upkeep. I highly recommend staying here. Owner is on-site manager and works very hard to make sure her guests are...

After a long day visiting Pictured Rocks Natn Shore, we had a little trouble finding this haven, but so happy when we did. It has a variety of accommodations, from motel rooms to cabins, but small property, rustic but updated well, with great deck for watching sunsets over Lake Superior. We stayed in motel room, clean and comfortable. Owner very... More

Only stayed for one night while traveling through MI, but highly recommend it if you are in the area. It was nicely decorated and had all the amenities we needed. The view of Lake Superior is SPECTACULAR. Nice outdoor patio to sit back, relax, and view the lake. Only drawback is that you hear every noise. Ate at a restaurant... More

My husband and I stayed in room 12 for 4 nights. It was very comfortable and clean. The location is absolutely beautiful, overlooking Lake Superior. Every morning Jeanette would have muffins and gingerbread and other homemade baked goods ready for breakfast. Delicious!! The area is so peaceful and we look forward to visiting again!!

I've been coming here for years and they continue to make improvements every year. The light continental breakfast is a nice touch. I think other reviewers have too high expectations. You are two hours from a large store. The homemade baked goods are a lovely touch. I've stay almost every place in town and no else offered anything but cold... More

Loved this little hotel. Our room was so nicely decorated; clean and beds were very comfortable. The view of Lake Superior was fabulous and the proximity to town very convenient. Breakfast was ok. The room was small. More people came in just as we were finishing. There was only one table and a couple of chairs, so we felt like... More

We stayed in the bear cabin for a week. It was comfortable and peaceful. It was also clean. The owner was very welcoming and friendly. It is walking distance to lake superior. If you're looking for a quiet getaway this is the place for you. The cabins are about halfway between Munising and Newberry. Grand marais is a small town... More
