I reserved just a room for a few nights because all downtown Iron River accommodations were sold out. The room was spacious, but everything in it was somewhere between a little worn and shoddy. Ski Brule is located in a nice wooded setting, but the view from my room was across a road to a series of big buildings connected...

Brule's hills are good for anyone from beginner to pro. One course was designed by an Olympian and has great jumps. "Timberdoodle" is my favorite run. It is a black diamond that curves through the woods- very technical. The lodging is nice, but outdated. We knew this ahead of time because of the site's photos. The help was very nice,...

Overall we really liked Timber Lodge and had a good experience with the staff from Ski Brule. The BBQ at Homestead was a great deal and fun experience and the ski trip in general was a good value. Very family friendly. Pros - Loved the real log cabin and the view of the ski hill with the soft snow falling...

Ski Brule advertising would have one believe that the facility is the best in the Midwest. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It's a small family run hill whose only goal is to separate you from your money. The owners and managers are rude and unaccomidating. If you are coming to Upper Michigan to ski do not waste your...

I participated in a fundraiser that won me a 2 night stay with shooting clays for 6.

The lodging option that I was forced into would not comfortably...

Its a great place to stay because it is right across form the ski hill, We could ski all day eat right at the resort and walk across to the Lodge. The ski hill has a bunch of runs for all different skill levels. The resort has great snow making equipment that ensures the hill opens first and closes last...

This resort seems that it would be amazing in the winter...In the summer, it is reasonable and clean, but very secluded. The resort itself seems to have many ammenities, however not accessible in the summer. We would stay again, just for the fact of a very clean place at a great price. We would have liked to have a little...

Just back from a lovely 3 night stay at Bull Moose lodge. We were three small families, ten people total, and at maximum comfort capacity. It worked just fine for us, especially given that we were on a budget. The kitchen was fairly well equiped and we prepared all our own meals. The resort is extremely family friendly, and the...

In Iron River, MI for a family reunion, we found that Ski Brule offered cabins etc. that could be rented by the day vs most summer rentals in the area that were rented by the week. We settled on a "condo" unit that had 3 bdrms and 2 baths. The living room/kitchen area (microwave, coffee maker, stove, and fridge) were...

“Ski Brule is known as a winter ski resort. If you plan on staying during the summer, make sure you have something planned for the kids to do other than the resort. There are no activities for kids.”

“We can only vouch for Bull Moose lodge, which is a short distance from the base of the mountain. They have a very handy shuttle bus that will take you to the base, and will bring you toilet paper when you run out. ;)”
