You have to love what Frank and Gail are trying to do with this place. They bought a few old motels are constantly trying to improve them and make them something of a destination.
While work on the physical facilities continues, their genuine hospitality makes up for any short comings. We stayed here on the third day of our Lake Superior Circle tour, and it was by far our longest day of driving -- we had come from Thunder Bay that morning. When we checked in around 5:30, Frank checked us in quickly, put us on the dinner waiting list, and after a short wait, he walked over to our room to make sure we were settled in and to tell us that our table in the cookhouse was ready. Later that night, after an evening of finding "cool" rocks in the bay across the street from the motel, we were sitting on the bench in front of our room taking in the view. Gail came up to make sure we were comfortable and that we had enough linens, etc.
Please see my review of the cookhouse to understand what a treat you are in for there.
