don't want to leave all your modern comforts behind, checkout the Whitefish
Lodge. It's located off Highway 38 down several miles of dirt back roads.
energetic proprietors, Karen Hart and Steve Pawielski, opened the lodge in
1993. Karen, originally from Atlanta, and Steve, born and raised in the
Munising area, have made Whitefish a welcoming oasis in the middle of the
|Set between the
heavily wooded borders of the Laughing Whitefish Preserve and a scenic,
rippling section of the Laughing Whitefish River, its nightsong is the sound of
nature. Don't be fooled by its remoteness. It's only five minutes from Lake
Superior's sparkling, cool beaches; 15 minutes from Munising; and 30 minutes
lodge has a freshly stained wood exterior and a large multi-tiered deck open to
guests. On the first floor, two smaller units have bedrooms with queen-size
beds. Their small kitchens provide a good gathering spot for families or
friends and feature new oak-cabinets, and appliances which include full
refrigerators, oven, range and automatic coffee maker. While not large, these
rooms do provide enough space to comfortably sleep four adults. The new
bathrooms have stall showers and are stock with plenty of soft towels.
|The upper level
is devoted to a spacious lodge unit called the Sugar Maple. It's great for
large families or small groups. Your party will love the combined great
room/kitchen, stocked with all the basics. There's a stereo, TV (no cable) and
VCRso bring along your VHS tapes. Down the hall are three bedrooms, each
with a small private bath.
wondering what to do while in the area, the owners are happy to inform you
about special events or activities. Guided scuba diving or wilderness adventure
tours can be found nearby. Or, just outside your door, enjoy miles of hiking,
canoeing, snowmobiling and cross-country ski trails. Whitefish also provides
mountain bikes for their guests.
seeking tamer adventures, there are plenty of wilderness driving tours or
nature walks that will take you to the heart of picturesque waterfalls or
nearby overlooks. You may just want to spend time relaxing and contemplating
nature on one of Lake Superior's many nearby beaches.
|Getting to the
lodge in summer months is easy enough. However, in the winter months,
four-wheel drive vehicles will come in very handy. And, speaking of winter,
that season is a busy time at Whitefish. If you're planning a winter excursion,
we suggest you book as far in advance as possible.
|Karen and Steve
have found a special place in nature and they look forward to sharing what it
has to offer with all of their guests. Come to the Whitefish Lodge and enjoy a
comfortable wilderness vacation.
