GRISWOLD'S LODGE

Griswold’s Lodge is a new experience in Ontonagon, MI. Purchased in 2021, and newly transformed into Griswold’s Lodge, we are excited to continue the legacy of the lodge, offering a cozy place to rest after a day of Michigan adventures. A family business, the lodge is named for our beloved dog, Griswold, found in the woods in Brainerd, MN in 2019. We hope to bring the comfort of home to your Michigan vacation, with updated, dog-friendly rooms, and helpful guidance to help you get the most out of your stay with us.

ABOUT

THE OWNERS

We love to connect and chat with our guests because we were vacationers before we became hotel owners. After visiting the porcupine mountains in 2020 and falling in love with the area, we took a leap into a new adventure together in 2021—we bought a lodge! Our partnership evolved naturally from our preexisting skills: Ali is our hotel expert with 10 years of experience in the industry, Paxton is a renovation whiz who works in construction, and Carly is a realtor. Together, we’re excited to welcome you to Griswold’s Lodge.

“The best part? Renovated rooms are dog friendly!”

Carly and Griswold made us feel so welcomed!! We loved our room but the true selling point was really the kindness of Carly!!
She was full of information to help navigate us in the area. This community is just amazing, can't wait to go back in the spring!!

I drove 20 hours straight to come work in Ontonagon. I had no idea what to expect. Carly, the new owner greeted me with a smile. She has gone out of her way to make sure that I had a room even when she had no room for me. She has honestly worked endlessly to accommodate myself & my travel nurse co-worker's. If she didn't have a room she called around to find a room. These owner's are very caring. The rooms are very clean and well stocked. It's a very safe and homelike environment. This is the place to stay! I can't wait to come back on vacation and see the renovations. Did I mention that the beach is a 2 minute walk from the hotel? Syls restaurant is literally next door and their food and customer service is also amazing.
