Beautiful place. Very down to earth feel. Comfortable beds in the cabins and even firm and soft pillows. The owners were friendly and gave us good advice of where to eat and hikes they recommend. Breakfast is simple, but there was fresh coffee every morning. This is not a luxury resort and those who expect that might be disappointed. We...

This was the first time I stayed at Hilltop. I also had a 50 lb. dog with me. The proprietors at Hilltop took care of us both just fine. It was a last minute booking during the fall color season and all the cabins were booked so we stayed in one of their motel rooms. Nothing fancy but everything we...

Check-in was very good. Cabin/motel cute with nice view. Clean room and bath with nice decor. The bed was horribly uncomfortable, I was so happy to only have one night of this. Also the blinds facing the road in didn't fully cover the window (you could see in at the sides). This place would be perfect if they upgraded the...

Everyone seems to love this place. It's in a quiet area and the cabin is cute. But I wasn't overly impressed. We walked through Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore and I wanted a long hot shower. That was simply not possible, the shower pressure was so low it was hard to rinse the suds off of you. There was no...

The cabin was actually very nice. It was clean and had everything that you would expect. The problem that we had - there was no view of Lake Superior from our cabin. We are told that there are 2 cabins that have a view. All the cabins face each other. If you are the type of people that like to...

This unpretentious little motel with cabins has a lovely view from a deck at the front of the property. The hostess gave us very good information regarding things to do and places to eat in the area. She knew the menus well at both the restaurants we were considering and with her help we chose a newly opened tavern where...

We stayed in Grand Marais at Hilltop Cabins for four nights. We were in Cabin #2 "The Moose". The cabin was adorable with lots of cute extras like a jetted tub for two. Jeanette was efficient and friendly and answered all our questions and addressed any concerns immediately. The town is adjacent to the Picture Rocks National Lakeshore so it...

We got confused when booking that the cabins only have kitchenettes. We stayed in the hotel portion that did not. But traveling we just ordered extra food ahead of time to have as dinner instead of cooking here. There are grills but it was a rainy day. Hotel room was clean! Smelled like bleach and had hooks everywhere, probably for...

Great place for a family of four-cozy cabin and close to downtown area. We stayed at cabin #9. Although no lake view, it was perfect for what we needed - no frills, but very nice. The grounds are very well kept and quiet. It was a nice place to relax after hiking. We would stay here again.
