Experience the grandeur of the Railroad Era when you step inside and see the quality workmanship and restoration. Beautiful mahogany woodwork and turn of the century craftsmanship grace the interior. This is the ideal setting for family gatherings, special events, retreats or just to 'escape' from the mundane. Contains a master bedroom, two full size murphy beds in the family room, and an additional sleeping loft above the sauna. Sleeps 8, has 3 bathrooms, 2 showers, kitchen and seating for 40.
Our family enjoys using this property for events and just to 'get away for the holidays'
Angela Leece purchased this lodge in 2001
The depot is centrally located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is the perfect in between meeting spot if you have families in lower Michigan and Wisconsin.
Our love of old buildings and history inspired us to restore the depot.
We stayed with our family to celebrate our sons graduation from NMU and decided to celebrate Christmas together. We had plenty of room for our grad and Xmas party and plenty of sleeping space for those that stayed overnight.
The heat was a bit confusing to figure it out to keep it warm, but once we did we were very comfortable. The heated floor was wonderful!!!
The wood stove for fires was well stocked and the Depot location was close to the trails, the Mountains, and NMU.
The area around the depot itself is bit run down and at night the bar next door used some of our parking. We had a wonderful time, the depot is gorgeous, and we had a great time.
I love old historic type buildings and this one is just lovely! It looks just as I thought it would from the description and pictures, it was clean, and I loved the heated floors! It was a bit cooler that weekend so we used the sauna and wood stove a lot. Since I am a Finn and grew up with a sauna I would probably use the sauna any time of the year. I staied here from Thursday night to Monday morning. We had a bachelorette party and wedding gift opening here as well and a lot of friends came over to visit. There is a big screen TV, cable, and a dvd/vcr plus they had a few board games for more entertainment. He has WiFi and we got the password, on my cell phone I could get it to work for only a little bit then it would stop and my daughter couldn't get it to work on her IPod touch at all. I am a bit tech. challenged... and I was very busy with the wedding so it wasn't something that we worry too much about.... I imagine the owner could have helpped us fix that also but we didn't bother to ask.... we don't have cable at home and we were enjoying watching HGTV when we had time! The few questions we did have were aswered very courteously and very promptly! I am looking forward to renting this again over the summer for a girls get away weekend. I would reccommend this building for parties, family gathering, snow mobliers (the trail is right outside your front door!) cross country skier, quilters, scap bookers (there a quite a few tables to layout your stuff) or anyone who wants a larger place to stay. I really liked having a full kitchen too. It saved me from having to eat out all weekend long.
The buidling is beautiful and spacious but the floors and bathroom needed cleaning and the customer service was traumatic. This may be a nice place for an day event but I would not recommend an overnight stay!
Within a short drive to Marquette, guest of the Historical Union Station enjoy the many wonders of the Upper Peninsula. Located on the Heritage Trail, popular for hiking, biking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. Walking distance to the downtown areas antique shops bakery and theater. Lake Superior and down hill skiing is just 15 minutes away. We also have snowmobiles available for rent during your stay.
