As one of the few original "Mom and Pop" hotels remaining in Houghton, we've embraced the classic feel and dropped the franchise!  Our place is a definite throwback to days gone by.  We have been Locally, Family Owned and Operated for over 50 years and look forward to having you as our guest when you visit the Keweenaw and community of Houghton/Hancock.   

You can look forward to the comfy & quiet style of hospitality that our little property is known for....excellent coffee in the a.m., bonfires on a warm summer evening, chatting with our staff on the porch, visiting with guests staying with us, sitting by the garden, walking on the trails, etc, etc. 

Having worked in the hospitality industry for over 30 years (yes! I'm that old) I will vouch for classic "Mom & Pops" being "Homey, Hospitable and Inexpensive".  Sadly, a dying breed in our world today, but I can say with utmost confidence that we are the best values in lodging.  You don't need to equate high rates with quality.  If you are tired of the lack of appreciation you find at many franchise properties and you don't mind the "folksy" feeling of a smaller place - we just might be for you.  You're not going to get an interior corridor, electronic keys or a front desk staffed 24 hours.  BUT we have safe, at-door parking, staff that live on the property, and procedures for late arrival.  We don't take personal checks or provide online booking capabilities BUT we accept all major credit cards!  

I hope you'll consider giving us a try.  Why Not?!

Our comfy front porch where you'll find your late arrival keys!                Your Innkeepers:  Mark & Julie Maroste - the "mom & pop"!
