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.
