We drove up to the U.P. so we can go to Mackinac Island. St Ignace was our departure point.
The location was great by the way.....It was right off the interstate. You drive about a 1/4 mile and you reach the city limits which immediately leads into downtown where all the ferry docks are at.
The area is gorgeous and quiet. The motel is very clean, pleasantly rustic, and every night the owners get a fire going so the guests, if they choose to, can make smores (they provide everything you need for the smores of course..the ingredients, sticks, plates ,etc)
The motel offers a simple but satisfying breakfast, wifi, and a good assortment of cable channels.
The rooms are great! They have a great outdoors cabin feel to them with all the comforts and amenities of a modern motel.
The owners are equally great. We stayed for three nights and two of the nights we sat around the fire with them, talked, and ate smores. You won't find this kind of hospitality and genuine friendliness at most of the hotels you stay at. It was a truly enjoyable and memorable experience.
I highly recommend this place to anybody. Great place at a great rate. I believe we paid between 65 and 70 dollars a night. One of the better rates in the area.
Also, I'd like to congratulate the owners for out ranking most of the big hotel chains in the area. WOOHOO! :)
