We rented a 2 bedroom cabin for 3 nights and had a great stay. Very clean, everything you need provided or the owners will tell you where to find it! Close to the beautiful marina, beaches, shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed the open area with picnic tables and swings. We also used the fire pit one night for a great... More

From the outside, The Blue Spruce might not look like the most inviting place. Inside, the rooms are modern and well kept. This is an "old school" place with real door keys, TVs that are not flat-screen etc. But everything works and they have pretty decent Wi-Fi for such a remote location. There are other good reviews of The Blue... More

Stayed in the "older" (recently renovated) section of the motel for 2 nights. Very accommodating, reminding one of the old-time motels. The bathroom was small but cute and again, recently remodeled. The room was quaint with comfortable double beds, TV, fridge - the basics. The grounds are well kept and everything was neat and tidy. It is a nice walk... More

When traveling to Port Austin, there are not many hotels/motels to choose from, but the Blue Spruce is not too bad. We stayed in the "new" portion of the blue spruce, so I can only comment on that area, because my search for reviews online have found some "not-so-great" reviews on the older portion. We stayed in room 15 (2nd... More

We just wet on a road trip for the day and ended up stopping at the blue spruce!!! The owner was awesome and very accommodating. We stayed in cabin 9 in the horseshoe part. It was very very nice. We had a lighthouse theme and the room was very clean. The beds were very comfy too. The only complaint we... More

Port Austin, MI is at the very tip of the Thumb. The beaches, boats, restaurants and shops just scream vacation paradise. It's an easy drive from our home in Toledo, OH. with the added bonus of being cooler during the torrid heat of July. The Blue Spruce was chosen based on other reviews I found online. It proved to be... More

We stayed here for a getaway weekend. Didnt know what to expect with it being a mom and pop place, but when we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a one room cabin but we had plenty of room with two adults. The cabin was clean and tidy as well as the grounds. We loved the pool.... More

We have stayed at this location many times visiting our relatives over the years. We have always found the rooms clean with sufficient space to move around etc. Many of the motels in vacation areas such as this are older and outdated. This was updated/remodeled , much similar to the large chain motels etc. No pool that I'm aware off.... More

But just OK. We went to the "tip of the thumb" in Mich because we wanted to see and/or kayak around the interesting rock formations in Lake Huron. Really, the only negative thing about our stay was the proprietor, who could not have been less interested in the rocks, where they were, how we might see them, or anything else... More
