Family vacation

Beautiful, great beach, very clean. My whole family had a fabulous time. Lots of room for all of us. Nicely stocked with everything you would need. Thinking of reserving for next year.

Perfect Wedding Retreat

We rented this spot for a weekend wedding retreat. The lodge accommodated two extended families to spend the weekend together and celebrate. We had a small ceremony on the gazebo overlooking Lake Superior. Beautiful location with all the amenities and a private beach. Highly recommended!

Amazing Week on Lake Superior

Wonderful. Unforgettable. Charming. Pinewood Lodge was everything its advertised to be and more! It was the perfect space for a few families to stay! We were able to spend tons of time together, but have our own spaces when we needed a break! We each had a comfy bed, and our little 2 year old even had her own darling toddler sized bed! The house was gorgeous and clean. There were huge tables to play cards, 2 kitchens, and tv\'s scattered through out the house. The owners were so thoughtful with the amenities in the rooms-- nightlights through out, fans, extra bedding and plenty of towels. The location is picturesque, and convenient-- an easy trip to Munising or Marquette and close to the boat tours, kayaking Au Train and the Hiawatha National Forest. There\'s even a place right down the street to pick blueberries! We loved our week-- thanks to Matt & Holly for such a special place to stay!

Amazing Property!
