We were quite excited to open the door to our room and see that we had a full view of the lake with a balcony. The room was clean and spacious. Lobby also had great big windows with a beautiful view. There was a little private beach - too cold to swim, but peaceful setting with lawn chairs and soft... More

The location cannot be beat, I'll give you that. Located close to the state park and the shipwreck museum as well as directly on the lake providing an awesome view for lake front rooms. However, the bugs were unbelievable in the UP. Honestly, we could not leave our room to be outside without being swarmed. The patio would have been... More
