Visitors can be found mushrooming in the spring, enjoying the water and sun in the summer and cruising through on ATVs in the fall.

Wonderful place — can't say enough good things re: the owners. I am about a year late with my post but better late than never right? Anyways, Love this place. I'll be back for sure.
My family stayed at the resort for the first time in 1997 and have great memories. 20 years later, we just returned from another stay with my now adult kids. We made even more great memories! This resort is an absolutely great place to unwind, enjoy serenity, watch beautiful sunsets, and just get back to simple!
Mary and I spent a week there in June. Had a great time and caught many walleyes. I hope to go again next year. Dave and Susan are great hosts.
Very relaxing and private. Owners are more than willing to help with whatever you may need... My family loved this place. Beautiful view and great atmosphere!
My favorite place to stay in the UP. Very centrally located for day trips in every direction.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays at Northern Exposure for many years. Dave and Sue's hospitality is the best! I can give this resort my highest recommendation!
Great place for family and friends to relax and have fun! The resort is always neat and clean, and Dave and Sue make us feel very welcome each time we vacation there.
This place is AWESOME!! you have to go there and see for yourself!!
We loved our vacation and will be back year after year!!
