“Nice place, great location for Pictured Rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

After making a last minute decision not to camp at Pictured Rocks, we made a reservation sight-unseen at White Pine Lodge. We were incredibly surprised when we arrived. Unlike many of the seedy-looking roadside motels in the UP, White Pine Lodge is large and clean. The staff was incredibly pleasant. The rooms were decorated like an upscale nursing home, but it was clean and comfortable.

There is an attached convenience store and gas station. Not really a romantic getaway, but it was fun to pick up a bottle of wine and walk to the room. Also within walking distance is a casino and a great restaurant/bar. Pictured Rocks cruises is just a 10 minute drive down the road. We would totally stay again if ever in the neighborhood.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

We stopped on our way back to lower Michigan from northern Minnesota on a Friday night. The lodge was recommended to us by a motel in Munising that was full. We received good service. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was okay. No issues, would stop again for a night.

We only took this room as there was nothing else available in a 50 mile radius. It took a long time to check in as this facility is also a gas station and right next door to a casino. They has only one young lady working the "desk" and she had to do multiple jobs. Not wise on a Friday night when everyone is looking for a rm. The cost: WAY over priced. Rooms: not worth the money. People were friendly but I would never stay there again.

A group of us stayed 1 night. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Small store off the lobby and gas station on site. Bar/restaurant across the road. Nice 16 person hot tub. Very close to the Pictured Rocks Boat Tours (10 minutes). Will stay again when in the area for sure.

This newer facility is on M-28 in Christmas, MI, diagonally across the road from my old home, so I know the neighborhood is great. Walking distance to the state forest campground and beach, Restaurant across the street and beside motel at casino. Just a couple of miles into Munising and Grand Island Landing. Great people and service.

There were no rooms available in neighboring Munising, and a competitor suggested the White Pine. Their suggestion was great for us. The room was cleaning reasonably priced. The staff was courteous, and the breakfast was good. another plus - they are motorcycle friendly. We will stay there again!

We didn't stay at White Pine Lodge, but let me share what I know about these folks. My daughter biked the Grand Island, at least, what she could cover in 4.5 hours. The next day her legs were cramping and hurting so much she thought if only she could soak in a hot tub for a bit, she might find relief. So my son went to the phone to see if he could pay a fee to get some hot tub time. $3 was the answer from White Pine. So off they went, finding a hot tub big enough for 16 people! My daughter was so grateful to have some relief from her aches and pains. As it turns out White Pine didn't take a dime, but expressed "Glad you're feeling better!" How very nice. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this lodge. The people and service are commendable! If a night's stay is needed in Christmas, MI, this should be the place where you lay your head! Of course, you really need more than one night in Christmas; there is so much to see and do in the area. We stayed for four nights and could've stayed longer if we'd had the time.
