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 local guidance to help you get the most out of your stay with us.
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.
ROOMS AT THE LODGE
We are excited to build on the history of Griswold's Lodge through our renovation project. Our goal in renovating this amazing lodge is to preserve the cozy, comfortable, welcoming feeling that our guests know and love, while modernizing and brightening the rooms to suit modern travelers’ needs. Renovated rooms will be available beginning in 2022.
“The best part? Renovated rooms are dog friendly!”
