We stayed for two nights while visiting Northland College. Very clean large room with kitchenette and table and chairs for some work plus two comfy loungers for watching tv. Our family of four had plenty of room to work and relax. Close to restaurants on Main Street. Nice view of the frozen lake!

This was an amazing gem found while travelling through the Autumn Colors tour of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The owner, Tom, was very pleasant, extremely accommodating, and our king-size kitchenette was top notch. It was very spacious, clean, and even offered a very large shower which my very tall husband really appreciated! We didn't use the appliances as we were...

Very unique. Each room is slightly different. The first time I went, there were two double beds as bunk beds. The next was two queens next to each other. Each room has slightly different décor. As it's right on the lakefront, it's fitting that the check-in place serves as a bait shop as well. Very quaint, very cool.

This place is not your average motel. It's clean and comfortable and well-equiped. Though we were there a day early because of a miscommunication, and the room we reserved for the next night wasn't available that first night, they were easily able to take care of us that night in a different room. So we were able to experience two...

This was one of nicest rooms we stayed in over a 2-week trip through parts of Canada and a few States. The staff was friendly, and the bait shop had a small beer/liquor/cooler selection and smoked fish which were great. They also recommended a nice place to us for breaky the next morning which was just down the road. I...

We stayed overnight at the River Rock Inn & Bait Shop. The room was comfortable, attractive, and certainly one of the cleanest I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. The north woods fishing theme even extended to the room key-attached to a "spoon" fishing lure. We will certainly stay there again. We meet the owner at the bait shop...
