We decided to stay in GM on a whim bc of weather and lots of places were full. We got the last cabin at Nelson's and it was wonderful. Friendly owners, cute and clean, affordable! We'll be back for sure!

The hosts didn't do a good job hosting. We felt like a burden the entire time we were there. It was as if my family and I were at a youth camp and the hosts were the grumpy, melancholy, micromanaging counselors.

The most clean and cute little cabin ever! NEW AND FRESH(refurbished). Nice trail to town. Friendly owners. Great price. Not right on Lake Superior, just a short walk to the shore. Well kept and maintained.

First time staying at Nelson’s Travelers Rest and we were extremely impressed with the accommodations, hospitality, and price. Our “motel room” felt more like a cabin with a beautiful wood interior, homey touches, a front porch sitting area, very comfortable beds, and impeccable cleanliness throughout. The grounds offered a picnic table, campfire pit and small playground. The owners were friendly and welcoming. Overall, a very peaceful and comfortable property at a very affordable price. We will be back!

We stay here whenever we can when we are up that way... The cabins are not fancy at all but are cozy and clean. The owners make you feel at home and are very helpful. Price is average for the area. You can walk to downtown from there if you like, or just over the hill to walk along the beach. Often there is a camp fire going for the guests to sit around and enjoy and a play area for the kids.
