The staff is extremely friendly. The price was very reasonable. The "fisherman" themed room was cozy. There was an in-room microwave and fridge which was great. There is no closet but that was OK as there were hooks on the wall. The bathroom did not have a vent so the aroma was a little overpowering at times. I'd stay here... More

We loved the unique décor of the room. We had the King room and loved the Forest theme with the birch trees and maple trees in the room. All the woodland creatures were so much fun! We hated to leave to go on to our next destination. If we vacation in this area in the future, we will certainly be... More

Our friends room was the waterfall room there bed was like a raft. The motel is ran by a very nice couple. He's an ex Marine she's a... More

The themed rooms are absolutely spectacular. The owner is extremely friendly and very professional. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. They have coffee makers that make more than one cup of coffee at a time. You also get a microwave and a refrigerator. The best deal in the u.p I found to date.

Reserved here for 1 night stay in late August on our way to the U.P. Found a few hairs in bed from previous guest and the baseboards needed dusted. Bed was comfortable (stayed in King room). Whimsical decor and overall homey feeling. Continental breakfast was bagels, cinnamon rolls, cereal and coffee. Located on edge of town. Excellent value for price... More

I am so glad I found this place for our one-night stay in St. Ignace. It has just the "up north" feeling that we love. We stayed in the Large Bear Room, which was tucked away around the corner from the main road. The room was quiet and I slept well. We were pleasantly surprised by the fridge/microwave/coffee pot and... More

A fun motel, clean and comfy! My husband and I stayed here instead of on the island and got 2-day discounted round-trip ferry rides. Certainly the way to go! They had a nice little breakfast area next to the office that was a sweet surprise. The room decor was over-the-top in a good way and felt like a nice introduction... More

A spur of the moment stop in St. Ignace, and Bear Cove was a perfect spot. Quiet and very clean, plus the owner is a former US Marine, Semper Fi brother. We stayed in the tree fort room, which is corner room. Very clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel is close to the road, and I did not... More

We have been staying here nearly every year since 2006 and will never stay at any other establishment in the area. This year our son walked into the room we always had and exclaimed "Ahhhhh, my second home" This year our family booked 5 of the 9 rooms and as every year was wonderful.
