Formally known as the Timber Ridge Lodge and Motel, the Timber Ridge Inn has gone under new ownership! The Timber Ridge Inn is open all year round, and is a perfect location for Snowmobilers and ATV/ORV trail riders. With access to trail #7/8, food and gas less than half a mile away, the Timber Ridge has all your needs covered. Just ten miles from the town of Munising Michigan, and Pictured Rocks National Shoreline, were close to grocery stores, gas station, restaurants, National Parks and Lake Superior. We are a little hidden gem, yet to be discovered by the big crowds! Surrounded on three sides, by 12,000 of national forest, and 1,200 miles of off road trails at your finger tips, we're right where you want to be for all the U.P. has to offer! Our rooms are situated on beautiful Lake Hovey, and the views from every room are stunning, each room has a water view from the bed room, and off the balcony. Our amenities include the following; In all rooms we provide high speed internet (starlink), cable T.V's, microwaves, toasters, coffee makers and mini fridges. We also have ample parking for trailers, a game room and sauna open 24 hours a day for guests, lake front balconies, outdoor seating and dining areas, with coal grills for cooking, fire pit by the lake. Access to trail #7/8, and a heated garage if ever needed. All rooms sleep up to four people comfortably and rooms 6 and 7 can accommodate up to 6 people! Rooms 4-9 are pet friendly. In the summer months paddle boats and John boats are available for no charge! We hope you consider The Timber Ridge when booking your next stay in Munising Michigan!

Hosts Mike and Mary Sue perfectly provide the basics, and go all out to satisfy your individual needs, in a picture postcard setting , at a modest price. Reasonably close to Pictured Rocks and yet remote enough to feel nature. Nearby Buckhorn Resort restaurant is a great place to eat, better than you would ever expect to find in the middle of the woods. Mike and Mary Sue are about to sell Timber Ridge. We hope new owners provide the same great experience.

We had such a great time here. It was scenic and secluded, only a few minutes from town and attractions and the hosts were so extremely helpful in pointing out all of the local points of interest and restaurants. The room was clean, had everything we needed and our host encouraged us to ask for anything else we might need. The Timber Ridge will definitely be our first choice to stay when we return to Munising!

We stayed at Timber Ridge in early July 2022 as part of a trip we planned to the U.P. for our 30th anniversary. It is located about 10 minutes from Munising in the Hiawatha National Forest, which provided us with a scenic drive whenever we went out. The room was clean and spacious, with a beautiful view of Lake Hovey from our balcony. The owner, Abby, was very personable, and gave us great information on things to do and places to eat. My husband loved one of her dining recommendations so much (Foggy's in nearby Christmas) we ate their both nights of our stay!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Timber Ridge. The beautiful forest location is just a short easy drive from town. The simple 2 room suite was very clean, quiet, and comfortable. All suites have a balcony overlooking the lake and the scenery is picturesque and peaceful. We enjoyed getting to know the new owner, Abby, who was super friendly and helpful. She gave us restaurant recommendations and made sure we had everything we needed. We'll definitely stay here again if we get back in the area.

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at Timber Ridge Inn while doing some hiking and waterfall chasing in the area. This will be a place that we recommend to friends and stay at again when we come back to the area. We stayed in Room 9. I love that there was a small kitchen area with a table and that the back deck has such a beautiful view. We got in after dark and did not see the view until we woke up the next morning. Getting in late was as simple as a phone call to the owner. She was super easy to work with. She ran the rest of our payment over the phone and left us instructions at the office for when we got there. The room was super, super clean, the bed was comfy and the bathroom had a full-size shower (this is apparently something I didn't realize was a perk until we hadn't had one all week). My husband was happy for a decent cup of coffee in the room as the last places we stayed did not have decent coffee in the room. I cannot say enough good things about this cute little place.

This was our first time to MI and we picked the perfect place to stay! We visited the Eben Ice Caves for a nice afternoon hike, Lake Superior for amazing view and photos, DWTN Marquette to shop and eat, Munising Falls, and Kitch'iti-kipi! The hosts are very friendly and accommodating! There is a pool table in the small rec room and a gorgeous view! Our room had a little kitchenette which was perfect for our 4 night stay but there is also a restaurant right down the road! Can't say enough about how much we loved our stay!

Having a long weekend off - I decided last minute to make one more trip up to Lake Superior before the summer season ended and happened upon Timber Ridge when searching for dog friendly accommodations. What a happy surprise Timber Ridge turned out to be! Not only were the rates extremely reasonable - This was the cleanest, best taken care of small motel that I've ever stayed in. The bedroom and living room/kitchen area were separate and very spacious; the location and view was beautiful, peaceful and quiet, away from the busy summer traffic in Munising. The owners - Mike, Sue Ann, and Callie (their little dog helper) were friendly, helpful with suggestions, and made me feel so welcome. Sweet Callie would come to my doorway each morning waiting for my small dog Dezi to come out and play.
While I was there, I noticed the motel was for sale. Mike said they had a pending offer ------ hopefully the new owners will have the same love for the property and people that Mike and Sue Ann certainly seemed to have.
