It's raining cats and dogs down here!

Oh no...Yooper's animation didn't show up on my screen...just a little box with 'snow scene' written on it. Sigh. Bad Earthlink.
It's raining here. Looking out the window and wishing all of this rain could be snow.
Whitewaves, I know, we are having a pathetic winter down here...if you want to call it that, eh. Bet you were all too anxious to head your car north ;)

Babslove, I am trying to remember the name of the hotel we stayed at...just east of the entrance to the Porkies...that's right on Lake Superior. I want to say it's in Silver City...but I'm not sure. I remember that the dining room faced out onto the lake...and if I remember correctly, it was one of the major hotel chains. Anywho, it's a beautiful hotel.

Ok...just got hubby on the phone...he said he remembered traveling 64 north out of Presque Isle Wisconsin, "all da way to da lake"..."make a left, and it's right there before the entrance to da Porkies".

Anyone know the name of this hotel?

By happyooper (Trigal) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 01:04 pm:

Could it be the Americinn? Here's the non-yooper directions: Located on Hwy 107, 13 miles West of Ontonagon. From the South, M64N to Jct. -- Directions -- From Interstate 39, go to Eagel River, WI take Us 45 North to Bruce Crossing, MI. Turn left onto M-28, travel to Bergland, turn right onto M-64, travel north 18 miles to Silver City, MI. Take a left on M-107 pass over the Big Iron River Bridge 100 ft on right.

For an experience you'll never forget ... here's one of my all-time favorites, if it's not too far north for you: Click® Laurium Manor Inn

By Gene Carlson (Gcarlson) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 01:39 pm:

I have stayed at Americinns all over and they are great for the money. I have never had a bad time.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 01:39 pm:

Happyooper, That's it...thanks. They must have changed names. Thanks for clarifying hubby's directions :) Men...sigh.

By Barbara Kaniewski (Babslove) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 02:21 pm:

Thank you for the help. It does help to here from someone who has stayed their. I have always camped when in the UP but not everyone is cut out for camping.

MTU has added several new webcams. Some of them show construction for the carnival, One of them (Fund Cam)has a good view of the lift bridge.

By Kathy P. (Katiaire) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 03:48 pm:

Americinn used to be Best Western...and I, too, recommend it as a great place to stay.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Friday, January 13, 2006 - 06:04 pm:

Thanks Katiaie :) For the life of me, I couldn't remember what the original name of the Americinn was ;)

Wind is blowing here too, Whitewaves...making my patio doors creak, in rebellion. And no, all this rain hasn't turned to snow yet.

We have stayed at Americinn in Silver City a couple of times. The pool and hot tub are great and the restaurant is wonderful. I had some of the best trout there that I have ever had.
