Owners obviously took great pride and had fun decorating the room with appropriate decor for the area. Bed was comfortable and some nice dining options were available a few miles away.

This is an adorable property just a few minutes from the Porcupine Mountains, makes a great spot for “base camp”!! The owners are friendly and welcoming. There is beach access just across the road and we even found a couple Yooperlites on the shore!!

My husband and I stayed here while traveling between Houghton and the Porkies. The owners were very friendly and the rooms were great. We loved the cabin decor and the evening fire with the owner and other guests that came out. The resort owns property across the street on Lake Superior, which was perfect for sunset, sunrise, rock finding, and fortunately for us, the Northern Lights. We will definitely stay here again!

One has to manage expectations for a motel in a remote rural area, but this one exceeded all our expectations. Exceptionally clean and comfortable, more amenities than one might expect for a property of this type. There was a bonfire for a social gathering, and a path to Lake Superior lined with cute displays such as a gnome house. About the only thing I would have liked that I did not have was a chair for the room. On the other hand, I'm not sure where it could fit. But no question I would stay again if I'm in the area.

Second time staying here. Still my favorite place to stay when I’m in the area. Lovely, local family ran resort with impeccably clean rooms, beach access to Lake Superior just across the road. If you’re looking for a place that is welcoming and cozy, this is it.

From the shores of Green Bay and Lake Michigan to the inland ocean of Lake Superior, my wife and I stumbled upon the Sunshine Motel and Cabins in 2019.   My wife, an educator of 15 years, and I, a Theologian and ordained Minister, became motel owners in March 2020, and it has been a wonderful ride since then. Now meeting and sharing stories with people from all walks of life has become our passion.

 

We enjoy taking long road trips across the country, meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds, experimenting with new foods and traditions, and living life.  

 

Let the adventures continue!
