We offer rooms with one, two or three beds. Efficiency apartments and handicap accessible rooms are also available. Our back yard borders 247 acres of United State Federal land and we are only 1⁄4 mile from the North Country Trail. Our convenient room-side parking helps with the early rising fisherman’s morning prep routine. We are also located near Big Manistee River, Little Manistee River and Bear Creek. Fish them all for a complete fishing excursion. Tippy Dam and Big M recreation areas are great to explore for those who like to hike, canoe and kayak.
