Hilltop Cabins is the best place to stay! Nice, clean up to date cabins/rooms, beautiful gardens and a great view from the deck of Lake Superior. Lots to see and explore within a close distance

Our room was cute and was comfortable--nothing super fancy, but for the price I wasn't expecting it to be. It was nice to have a small kitchen available. We also appreciated having access to a washer and dryer. The location was good--within an hour drive to both Pictured Rocks and Tahquamenon Falls.


Will be back again next year!

This was our second stay, and this time we stayed a week. Quiet, well maintained, and close to town (about a mile--easy walking distance). Grand Marais is at the eastern end of Pictured Rocks Nat'l Park, so there is plenty to do.

Use the place as 'base' when we did the National Pictured Rocks Tours.. Place is very nice and peaceful. Cabins are spaced apart very well that give privacy to the guest there are several common areas but since cabins/guestroom are not so many, the place is not crowded. Perfect place to get out of the busy city and re-charge..


Ok but not great

We stayed here for about 12 hours as a stop over on our way from Munising to St. Ignace. This place seemed charming and relaxed. Only saw the staff as I was leaving the next morning, but she was friendly. Clean and adequate cabin. It was a bit basic, but it was fine. There was a common area next to the main house with a great lake view, so that was cool. WiFi was pretty much non existent, which was inconvenient. Overall, I'm not sure I was here ling enough to give it a very thorough review, but the place was clean and adequate for what we needed, minus the WiFi issue.


Great place to stay in the UP!
