Timber ridge is one of the best resorts we've ever stayed at. The place is secluded and beautiful! Mike and Mary sue were very friendly and giving hosts.. 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

Obviously, some people like this motel. I can't say I did. It is about 7 miles outside of Munising in a rather remote location. There is little traffic noise but the walls are very thin and you can hear most everything in the ajoining rooms. The TV gets mostly infocommercials. No breakfast. I would not recommend this motel. There was... More

If you want to stay in Munising this is not the place for you, but believe me the drive is worth the effort! Place is clean, comfortable and the view over Hovey lake is outstanding. Plus the price is remarkable value for money. No wonder it was full the three nights we stayed there! Lack of a restaurant is not... More

We were a little hesitant to book Timber Ridge. Although the view was promising, there didn't seem to be enough information on the room. We are very glad we stayed as the room was modern and clean. The view from the deck was a great place to have coffee in the morning and the lake a great place to enjoy... More

My girlfriend went to Pictured Rocks and needed a place to stay. Found this place on trip advisor and had favorable reviews. Instantly when we pulled up, we were greeted by a gorgeous view of the lake. The room had a separate bedroom and living room/kitchen, was clean, the management was very friendly, you can even take a boat out... More

The view from the rooms is just wonderful. The decks look over Hovey Lake with eagles, owls, whippoorwills and lots of other wild life. Our room had a kitchenette and living room and a bedroom. It was very clean and the folks who run it were very relaxed and pleasant. The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is... More

Unpretentious, comfortable and serene. These are the words we'd use to descrbe Timber Ridge. Located 10-15 minutes from the town of Musining, this is an excellent and affordable choice in the region. Our two room suite had a small balcony overlooking Hovey Lake. The accommodations were not luxurious but were clean, comfortable and contained everything needed for a enjoyable stay.
