About Julie and Bob Wisniewski-managers
My wife, Denise, and I have been vacationing here for the last 20 years. In that time we have enjoyed many family reunions and parties with our large extended family.
Julie and Bob Wisniewski-managers purchased this Lodge in 1991
Why Julie and Bob Wisniewski-managers chose Munising
We chose to buy this property because of our large family and the many possibilities for boating , golfing, hiking, and other recreational activities this area offers.
What makes this Lodge unique
We enjoy being on a large bay where the cottages are not close together and the privacy offered is better than that available in most other locations. Also, there is relatively light boat traffic on the water which means we can enjoy serenity instead of many boats and jet skis creating a noisy environment.

Great week on the greatest lake.
My four siblings and I and our families have been gathering for vacations in various locations around the U.S. every other year for 25 years. This year we picked The Great Lakes region - and found this incredible property to be our home base for the week. The main house was perfect for our communal meals, conversations, jam sessions and game playing. The remaining houses gave us room to spread out and very comfortable accomodations. The beach and the sauna and the fire ring on the lawn took up all the rest of our time at the compound. And, the location at Pictured Rocks proved to be a prime location for getting into hiking, history, walking the beaches, boat tours of the cliff and checking out Grand Island. So much to see and do close by! We had as many a 26 for part of the week - and there was room to spare. Weather was great - it rained one evening - but even then, held off until the grilling was done! Everyone was thrilled with the location and the facilities. We couldn't see it all in a week - this is one place we may need to visit again!
Superior to all others!
The family compound in Christmas, MI was the perfect location for our family of 27 and counting. Now that we have returned home, I miss the Lake Superior views from my bedroom, beach bonfires, visits to the sauna, state of the art kitchen, and carefree time spent with family. The property is beautifully maintained and clean. The manager, Julie, is incredibly friendly and resourceful. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends. During our stay, we went hiking, cliff jumping at Grand Island, kayaking, and took the Picture Rocks Boat Tour. We look forward to visiting again. Thanks, Julie!
Thank YOU, Kristen. Your family was marvelous, and we truly enjoyed meeting all of you. Please come again.
Amazing Location and Well-Equipped
We so enjoyed our week's family reunion at this wonderful location on Lake Superior. Everything was incredibly clean, beautifully appointed, and well thought out for group fun. Even when the weather wasn't cooperative, there was plenty to do on the compound and in the surrounding area. Our hosts, Julie and Bob, were so gracious and accommodating, concerned only that we have everything we need, and that we have plenty of fun. The kitchen in the manor house was professionally equipped and made family meals together a joy to prepare and share.
All in all, I would take the family back to this location again. It was simply great, probably the best facility we have shared over the years of our family reunions.
You, your five daughters, and their families were a joy to have as guests. I hope you will consider coming back again. Thank you for your gracious words. It was our pleasure to have aided you in celebrating with your family.
Bob and Julie
The compound was truly beyond my expectations! I have heard how amazing this place was but when you see it you have a better understanding of how special this property is! The houses are stocked with everything you need and provide a great gathering space while the individual houses enable privacy as well. The views are unbelievable from every part of the property! We enjoyed several beautiful sunrises and bonfires every night! I highly recommended this for family and friends for a very memorable vacation! Epic! The property manager Julie was the best!
UP trip exceeded expectations!
We sadly returned home, from an AMAZING stay here. This property was perfect for our large (23 folks) family! Each 'family' was able to spread out in their own house at night, but we all met up at the main house for meals and to hang out. The houses were all SO clean, amazingly maintained, and the kitchen set-up was perfect. Julie and Bob were so helpful. The kids loved all the grassy areas to play and ride bikes, the beach was a huge hit (and the water was comfortable for swimming!), and there were plenty of day-trip activities to do nearby. We look forward to returning!
Extraordinary Family Vacation
Our large family (my siblings and their families) was so fortunate to return here for a second year and enjoy this beautiful property on Lake Superior. Plenty of space for all of us with great attention to the details that make this a luxurious home away from home. We enjoyed family dinners in the main house(we all gathered and prepared a spaghetti dinner together) celebrated my nephew's engagement, enjoyed time on the beach and endless hours of fun on the lawn. Julie and Bob do am amazing job keeping the homes and grounds immaculate and making guests feel so welcome. A lovely place to get away and truly relax. Thank you again for a perfect week!
