Hard to find, in the middle of nowhere and rooms were just ok. Expensive and too quiet and strange. Owner commented at 9:30 that I should hurry up and shower because check out was 10.

After a long day of driving we started looking for overnight accommodations! I saw the Root Cellar Lodge sign and thank goodness we drove the 10 miles to get to it! Excellent clean comfortable rooms! Located on a lake! Fantastic restaurant, great service and great prices! We actually stayed an extra day!

I have been sledding in the UP for 5 years and have stayed in 6-7 places. Nothing compares to the Root Cellar if you are looking for nice accommodations and great food. The owners treat you like family and really appreciate your business. I had a portion of my group cancel last minute and they weren't charged for cancelling same...

Found this place rather last minute and wasn't sure what to expect for $50 a night. Was very central to the entire western end of Upper Peninsula which was perfect for the trip that we were planning. The resort is very nice and set almost right on Lake Gogebic. We weren't sure where to check in, so a sign indicating...

Would never return to this site if it was the last place left on earth. Owner was like a 2-year old "do this do that don't park here put your sled over there". The word has and will be spread throughout the snowmobile clubs and industry this is not the place to visit or support. The owner is a complete...

Bar closed early all the time, we were yelled at repeatedly for where we parked, bare minimum for supplies in cabins. Will never ever stay here again. Locked cabins and took our keys, called us in from ride until we moved our truck.

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin for a short planned motorcycle trip. The price was great, the cabin was large, clean and had all amenities. Staff was friendly, lodge food was very good. My bed was uncomfortable (5 beds) and no air conditioning in the cabin. The hotel rooms have air.

Its everything your looking for in UP lodging. My boyfriend and I stopped here on our first night of a 7000 mile road trip. It was the cheapest place we stayed at but it was also the cleanest/nicest we stayed at. The rooms were recently updated and they are very spacious.
