Port Austin, MI is at the very tip of the Thumb. The beaches, boats, restaurants and shops just scream vacation paradise. It's an easy drive from our home in Toledo, OH. with the added bonus of being cooler during the torrid heat of July. The Blue Spruce was chosen based on other reviews I found online. It proved to be an excellent choice based on cleanliness, room size, and wonderful pool. The owner is warm, friendly, and helpful. It's all been recently updated and renovated. In the future I would not even consider staying anywhere else.

- We have 28 motel rooms and cabins of multiple sizes spread out over 2 acres in downtown Port Austin, just 3 blocks south of the Harbor. Our units vary in size and amenities as do our prices to meet a variety of budgets. Cottage C is the largest unit which sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. It is our only unit that is not air conditioned as it was built in the late 1800's. All motel rooms and cabins have air conditioning and all units have a refrigerator. Rooms 2 through 15 at the Blue Spruce have coffee makers and Rooms 8 through 15 at the Blue Spruce also have microwaves. There are two common areas on the property with fire pit, picnic tables and charcoal grills for the guests to use. Our outdoor heated pool is nestled between the motel rooms and cabins.
