    We loved staying here. Clean, convenient, nice view of the straits, close to town without the constant foot and auto traffic downtown. Not too close to the road, and right on the water. Attractive inside and out. We enjoyed the covered balcony. Good bed.

    I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
