Just arrived home from a great snowmobiling trip . Mike and Marysue took good care of us again. The snow gods dropped 3 feet of snow this week on top of a good base . Trails are all groomed and in great condition . Rob McKinlay

We stayed here in September for our anniversary. The first and biggest issue was that the room smelled of urine. No pets are allowed, but we personally know of a couple with dogs that stay here every winter. I am not sure if they make an exception for pets or if they sneak them into the room. There is no...

I can't say enough good things about this motel and the owner. I needed a room with no advance notice. Mary went out of her way to make me feel welcome and comfortable and to be sure I had everything I needed. My room (actually a suite) was very clean. The location was perfect for me - well off the...

Exceptionally clean (unit 5). Enjoyed the small balcony overlooking the lake. Two separate rooms, very comfortable beds. Unit has fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee pot. Bring your own hair dryer. Be prepared to do a lot of driving; it is eight miles from downtown if that's your focus. Buckhorn restaurant is a few minutes away and is a good choice for... More

We loved our time at this lovely, rustic getaway! The room was spacious and clean. The owner Mary Sue was friendly and so very helpful. The surrounding woods and trails were beautiful. The view of woods and lake from our little balcony were breathtaking! We hope to return time and time again.

Booked a night here after reading all the great reviews on TA. Arrived and found our room to be ok. A big "no smoking" sign is on the door, but our room smelled like an ashtray. We both said we felt like we stepped into 1979 when we entered the room. Big, itchy plaid couch, chair with a cigarette hole... More

Enjoyed this beautiful motel that overlooks a pretty, wooded lake, about 8 miles from Munising on paved roads. Owner built this place with pride. Very hospitable and friendly, reasonable rates. Living room with mini kitchen and a nice bedroom with doorwall and balcony. Everything clean and worked, no problems. Good internet with no password required. No free breakfast, per usual... More

Very clean and away from the "hustle and bustle" of Munising. A very pretty lake down the hill. Looks like the Lodge was finished by the owners. GPS won't get you there but it's not hard to find - just watch for the signs. There is a tiny kitchen area and living room separate from the bedroom and bath.

The only complaint I had was that we only stayed one night! Our rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable. Proprietors were helpful and friendly. Beautiful waterfalls nearby as well as Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore are well worth the visit to this part of Michigan.

I stayed 4 nights and came away thinking "If I could I would like to stay here again and again and again" Lovely bedroom overlooking the lake; perfect kitchenette for my needs; appreciated having a TV to view at night; lovely owners.
