We agree that the Lodge is not for everyone, but if you are looking for an adventure and wonderful conversation with the owners, you might love it. We love it! It is not fancy and it is quite old, dating back to the hayday of the old Blaney Park Resort. Formally a logging area, Blaney Park became a very popular resort area during the 30's-60's. I came here as a kid with my family during the 1950's. The Lodge has cabins and rooms to rent for a very reasonable rate.
Lodge owners, Howard and Lorrine, are wonderful hosts with great stories. You don't want to miss Howard's famous oatmeal breakfast and maybe a cup or two of Lorrine's coffee. Blaney Lodge is a great central location to visit many UP area sites...from lighthouses and the Seney Wildlife Reserve, to wineries, a casino and waterfalls. My wife and I try to visit the Lodge every year. It always brings back wonderful memories and makes new ones each time.
