The room was inexpensive, clean, quiet, and spacious. We had a small, private balcony overlooking the lake. We did not make it down to the lake due to weather. The decor was a bit outdated, but that didn't bother us. There was a fridge, kitchen sink, microwave, and hide a bed in the room, which was divided into a bedroom... More

We only stayed one night, as we were traveling through. We lucked out because there was a cancellation. The owner met us there so we could pay for our room and leave early the next morning. The setting was gorgeous. It had a great view, a sitting area separate from the bedroom and a kitchenette. Best of all: friendly people... More

I give this a "5" not because it is luxurious but because it's charming, remote, well-maintained, inexpensive, and extremely well managed. The decor is still pretty nice and clean despite being located in the deep forest. You have to beware of bugs outside and keep them out of your room, but they do a good job of pest prevention inside.... More

I googled hotels in Munising Area and found this gem. I wasn't sure what to expect, (being a smaller one in the area), but we were delightfully surprised ! The serenity and tranquility around here is amazing. This was actually about the cleanest hotel we've ever stayed in! It is about 10 minutes outside of Munising, and we did the... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at the TImber Ridge. The people are great, rooms are clean, and the view from our room was wonderful. This is a quaint north woods motel, so if you are expecting the Ritz, you are in the wrong place. You will hear what your neighbors are doing, and how amorous they get;-) That... More

The Timber Ridge Lodge is a beautiful place to stay, with family or friends. The view from each room overlooks a peaceful lake. Rooms a very clean and stocked with a small fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The owner, Mike, is friendly, kind and helpful.

We already are planning our next trip there to snowmobile next year. .. Mike has it set up perfectly for sleders.. Thanks again for the great stay!! ........the Russeau's

Thank you, Mike, for chasing after us after we left your place. I appreciate your efforts to return my binoculars since I didn't know I'd left them in your office. Not only is the Timber Ridge a great place to stay, but you and your wife are terrific. I'll be back and I plan to recommend the Timber Ridge to... More

I have been staying at Timber Ridge motel from day one. It was purpose built by the owners for snowmobilers. You can ride out of here and connect to all the trails easily. It is set back off the road just far enough to be very private but only a short drive to Munising. Buckhorn Bar just around the corner... More

The rating reflects the value received for the price. No, it's not the Ritz, but it is very clean and comfortable, the owners are friendly, wonderful hosts, and the setting is very quiet and peaceful. The microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, and toaster were much appreciated. If getting out into the woods is your thing, there is direct access to unlimited... More
