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

My husband and I stayed in the bear cabin and it was beautiful. It was so peaceful and quiet. The owner was fantastic! She was very welcoming and makes you feel at home. Grand marais is almost centered between Munising and Newberry. If you are looking to get away from the city and destress then this place is for you.... More

Janette was a wonderful hosted with a fresh made breakfast and accommodated a late check in and early check out. Easy access to pictured rocks national lake shore and only 2 hours from Mackinaw, MI. The room was clean and well kept with a mini fridge and coffee maker.

This is my second trip to Hilltop Cabins and would/do recommend Hilltop to friends looking for a place to stay. Jeanette is a fantastic hostess and will do anything to make your stay better. Nice view of the Lake Superior from the deck or take a short drive to Agate Beach and downtown, quiet and peaceful. In season cute stores... More

Hilltop cabins is definitely the place to stay if your looking for somewhere close to the trails but also right up the hill from town! We had such a great experience that we are returning again at the end of January and will be returning again after that trip as well! The owner is super friendly and attentive to your... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hilltop Cabins. We stayed three nights in one of the motel type rooms. Very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the relaxing grounds and visited with many of the other guests. Peaceful, rustic atmosphere. We liked the homemade breakfasts. Quite yummy. We had several pleasant conversations with the owner. We admire what she has accomplished.... More

This was my 3rd stay with Hilltop Cabins. My first two stays were amazing! Nothing but nice things to say about this place! This stay, was less than perfect. The wi-fi was non-existent. Stayed 3 nights and was never able to connect to it. Stayed in the "Honeymoon Suite". It was a cute little one room cabin. VERY CLEAN! It's... More

Rustic cabins well suited to the location. The private cabins looked nicer than the room we stayed in which seemed to have rather thin walls. Very basic accomodation but clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Family friendly. Breakfast was heavy on the carbs (no yogurt or fruit, but there were hard boiled eggs) but the warm blueberry breakfast bread... More
