We stayed at this property over the summer and found it to be amazing. The motel room was very clean and taken care of, the decorations give it a very homey/cabin feel, and the owners were more than accomodating with all of our needs. They have their own private access to Lake Superior right across the street, making it a...

Cozier that the pictures let on! The customer service and accommodations are what makes this place the best. Anything we need, it's accommodate, even pets! Love all the outdoor accommodations (fire pit, BBQ's, trails, outdoor furniture, swing, etc.) and everything you need for them is provided. We sat by the fire the whole day, so peaceful. Highly recommend especially in...

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. Kay in the office was very kind and I loved seeing her three pups. She gave us a nice detailed map of Ontonagon and restaurant recommendations. We stayed in the motel portion and our room had a wolf motif, which was slightly creepy but cool at the same...

Great place to stay, clean, and reasonably priced and convenient to Porcupine Mountain. We typically fix breakfast so appreciated the coffeemaker and microwave; the mini fridge allowed us to keep things cold and we'd pack our lunches to take hiking. Bruce & Kay are great hosts!

Came to get away from it all, get some work done and breathe clean, fresh air. Did all of that in a clean, well-maintained and perfect setting... Lake Superior in front, wooded walks in the back. Town is only 3.9 miles away, Lake of the Clouds 13 miles up the road. Falls, rivers, lakes, all around. Love this place.

Nothing fancy. Just a clean comfortable room at a mom and pop motel. Grounds were very nice with plenty of lawn furniture. Access to Lake Superior right across the road. Microwave, mini fridge, and decent TV in the room. Would stay here again when in the area.

My wife and me stayed on the week of August 21st for 5 days. This is a great place and they have it designed to give the Northern MI perspective.

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. So much so that we stayed an extra night. The room was clean and comfortable. Windows on each side of the room made the room nice and light. It was in the 80's during our stay so we needed the air conditioner at night. It was one of the best AC units...

Very clean and friendly. Bruce and Kay are great hosts, and Kay is very relational with helpful suggestions. We made much use of beach access for watching sunrises and sunsets Over the lake.
