This was a small but charming motel. The owners were very friendly and helpful, even making a phone call when they couldn't answer a question we had about a nearby business. There is beach access on Lake Superior, and, if it had been warmer, we would have enjoyed the grills, chairs, etc. in the center. Rooms are small but cozy... More

Picked the Sunshine based on TA reviews and its proximity to the Porkies. I prefer mom & pop, vintage lodging when I travel and the Sunshine definitely fits the bill. It was clean, generally well-kept, had friendly hosts and was priced right. However, our room (14) had a noticeable damp feeling to it and I don't think we were the... More

Sunshine Motel If you want a charming, dog friendly and clean place to stay, Sunshine Motel is the place to go. Having traveled many years with dogs, this is the first place ever to come out to the car to take pictures of our dogs upon checking in. With access to Lake Superior, there are no worries about bring muddy,... More

This was such a quaint place to stay, the owners Bruce and Kay were great people, they even waited up for us, as we were arriving late. ( it's always thoughtful to call ahead when you are running late for check in) The room was cozy and clean, it was in a wooded area, but very close beach access, so... More

We stayed in cabin 15 and we were very pleased with the size and comfort of the room. Everything was clean and updated, with charm. We enjoyed a great nights sleep. Our host was extremely helpful and informative. I called to make a reservation on our way into the Porcupine Mountains, the owner took my call and gave me great... More

Upon walking in the motel was what I expected. Great to have a microwave and mini fridge. Flat screen with basic cable to relax with after hiking. Shower with tub. However the bed was SO BAD it left us sore and tiered before we had even gotten started hiking. I would have been more comfortable with a camping pad and... More

Talked of going to the Porcupine Mountains for sometime. This is a great place to stay, centrally located for the mountains, Adventure Mine, and the southeast Waterfalls area. Cottages were clean and roomy for us and our two Border Collies. When they say they are dog friendly, they mean it! There was no extra charge for the dogs and plenty... More

Nice place. We stayed four nights and used the motel as base to do some long day hikes in the Porkys and to drive up p the peninsula (day trip). Clean, nice grounds, friendly owners who knew the area and offered suggestions and personal reviews of places/restaurants in the area. The motel is along a rural highway so traffic noise... More
