My wife and 3 kids and I stay in one of the cabins with a kitchenette. It was cramped but an awesome experience for us. The owners were exceptionally kind and accommodating. The cabin was very clean. The view from the deck is stunning as you look out over the bay and watch the freighters slowly pass by. This place... More

This was a great place for our one night stay. (Wished we could've stayed longer!). It's close to town and close (10 miles?) to the Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point. Very well maintained and the waterfront view can't be beat! Covered parking for your vehicle!

We stayed in cabin 3. It was very neat and clean. The basic cabin with two beds and a bathroom is all you need for the night. The beautiful area calls for you to spend the time exploring outside. I woke up early to see the sunrise, but the clouds got in the way. It was still a great morning... More

Great view of the lake with occasional ships. Beautiful sunrise. Very clean basic room with TV and bathroom. No air but that is to be expected in a northern Michigan cabin. Very polite owners. We would stay here again.

The room was very clean and that's the main thing I look for in a room. The view was beautiful, the owners were very friendly. I'm giving this place a 5 star not because it's was anything fancy but because it was exactly what we needed and expected for the upper peninsula. I would recommend this place and if I'm... More

We stayed in Cabin 3 with our dog. Owners greeted our dog with a treat. We were looking for a place to just unwind for a few days. Take in the Falls and unplug from life. This place certainly took care of that. Owners are very welcoming and our room was everything we needed. My husband walks with a cane... More

My own home has NEVER been this clean. But then, I have cats. And children. This little Cabin 1 (of 4) was adorbs. I use this word because I'm pretty sure the owner has never heard it before. Our cabin had a grill for hot dogs or burgers only, and that outdoors. No cooking in the cabin. But we had... More

My husband and I stayed in unit 1 which was very cozy, clean and comfortable with a view of the lake that is fantastic! We were there the third week of September and the weather was wonderfully cool. The owners sincerely appreciate their guests. I was curious to spot freighters in the far distance. Nikki immediately brought out her lap... More

We stayed two nights at this Motel as we wanted to see the Taquamemnon Falls (which are nice, but nothing special). This "Motel" consists of 2 Double-Cabins with one room each. The rooms are OK, we slept very well, but the furniture shows a bit wear and tear. However, the benefits and the plus of this place are the location.... More

I stayed in Unit 4. The owners were friendly and helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. My room had a kitchenette and tiny bathroom. It was small and outdated but clean. The wifi didn't work and the owner said they haven't been able to get service in units 3 and 4. The lock was sticky and I had trouble locking... More
