This was a wonderful night. We had just spent the previous night at the Bates Hotel in Munising and thankfully survived a psycho experience. I wish we could have booked 2 nights at the Timber Ridge but they were booked. Next trip we will reserve early for a full week. Each room has it's own patio overlooking Hovey Lake smack... More

Timber Ridge is wonderful! We spent a few days hiking in Pictured Rocks, and this was the perfect place to unwind after. The rooms are clean and spacious, and you can't beat the view of the lake from the balcony. The bed was comfortable, there was a pool table and boats available, and even a sauna! The owners were extremely... More

Great location, great price, beautiful view, very clean and comfortable rooms. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I had not visited the area for a long time and they gave us a map and advise on the must see sights. They also had boats available for the lake.

Loved this location! Rooms are spacious with a little deck to sit on and over look the Honey River. Looks like there were paths to walk down to get closer to the water, but we didn't venture down there. Room was clean, but dated. However, for the price, it was wonderful! Owners are very accommodating.

We stayed here for one night the end of July. Prior to booking this place, I read a few reviews on your site about the friendly owners. When we checked in, that is exactly what we experienced. Although the place is quite dated, like a throwback from the 60's, it was perfectly fine. For the short time we were here,... More

Stayed 3 nights with my daughter and 3 grandchildren. We loved it. Very peaceful. Beautiful view. Very clean. The owner was very nice and the housekeeper was wonderful. Recommending to my friends. Loved that there are 2 rooms in each unit.

I stayed here for one night with my family (4 children). Wow! Clean room, great customer service (the owner brought us extra towels) and balcony overlooking a beautiful lake (complete with paddle boats, etc.) Very highly recommended!

Like the other recent reviews said, a motel is a motel, but this one is of high quality. The owners and staff were just great, starting with making the reservations by phone, to confirming them, and then finally at arrival, they were so friendly and just lovely to talk with. The rooms were clean and comfortable, especially the beds! We... More

A motel, is a motel, but this place was clean, spacious, and had a very nice owner (although I never physically saw her!) Whenever you needed anything you called the owner on the phone at the office (if they weren't there) and you'd get it right away! They had lifejackets for free use of the paddle boats and canoes (although... More
