View Full Version : Lodging Grand Opening, Greenland

01-12-2010, 05:56 PM


The old Town Hall will is officially open for Lodging, an upper and lower unit, potential for 15 people . Located between Houghton and Ontonagon. Great snow location for Lake effect. The lodging is completely remodeled. It was originally the Greenland Town Hall. It still retains some of it's original character. The structure has seen a complete face lift. It has been gutted inside and is all new. The entire place is just over 2200 sq ft and completely furnished. There is a large parking area behind the building for large trailers and trucks. There is a bar 100 ft away (Beer Belly Bob's.) Trail is 1 block away and riding is legal in town. Food is close by also. Yamaha shop in town, Poo and cat dealers in Ontonagon 14 miles down the highway.

Lodging prices: $120 for 4 guys ($30 per guy), $30 each additional guy. Basically $30 a person

what would it be for the 3 nights then? Does the room have a tv area or kitchen or anything? thanks

Lenny, don't undersell your self. Comparing your price($125.00) with what we paid in Munising and from other sites I've looked at I would say your price is right! With kitchen and being newly remodel (rebuilt) Even with 3 people $125.00 is good price. The host is worth at least $75.00??

Hey Lenny....Congrats hope it all works out for ya.....any pics of inside after remodel was finished.....remember seeing pics when u were in proccess of residing....but don't think i saw any after that? Will let you know when we're headed that way.

Would like to see pictures of the inside and what is a week rate. I'd come in Saturday afternoon and leave the following Saturday at 4:00am (I'm a morning person). It would be My wife and I plus our two dogs, which are caged while we are out.

Feel free to email me.

LENNY, that looks freaking awesome! What do the bedrooms look like?

02-01-2010, 06:58 PM
hey Skylar, same original maple hardwood floors. I was supposed to go over there today and get the bedroom beds set up but I got a call for a huge ice damn on a roof so I was cleaning off ice and snow, needless to say I didn't get the beds finished. I'm going over there now to get a few more hrs in, hopefully I will post the pics tomorrow evening, if not than for sure the next evening. I have been looking into some of the history of this building. It was originally the town hall and dates back to 1901. Possibly earlier, I'm still investigation

Thanks for the compliments !

How was the the ride in and all it's affairs. I sure wasn't happy about missing this time but that's how it goes.

02-07-2010, 09:44 PM
Finally got all the little details complete except for the helmet and boot rack, closet shelf and rod. Paint is final and place looks exactly how I want it to look.

Skylar, I will get some pics of the bedrooms this week. There are 3 of them and all nice sized.

All weekends are open for march as of now. If it snows they can fill quickly, as I've been told. We are looking at some interesting forecast for this upcoming week. As a rider, I have seen some of the best conditions in March.

One thing I will assure you is I will never alter conditions to suite my financial needs. I want people to trust my words even if it means I do not fill a room. I traveled 440 miles to ride usually (before I moved to da UP) and have received bogus reports and would never listen to those liars again. I want repeat customers who can count on consistency from me.

Shoot me a line if you need a place to stay

hey Lenny,

I showed the place to my wife. we've been looking for a stand alone place where our whole family can go seeing some of them dont ride and would like to lounge around during their stay. More pics would be great. So is the whole place rentable? I guess i'm trying to get a feel for it. Bedrooms are upstairs or is that separate rental area?

02-08-2010, 09:23 AM
right now the upstairs is newly remodeled, so basically it is the upper half when your looking at a pic of the outside. It is just over 1020 sq ft so it is roomy. I am heading over there this afternoon to do a bit of work so I will get some pictures of the bedrooms. Eventually the downstairs will be a separate rental. There is an exterior side door that enters the staircase so access is completely separate. Right now the downstairs is a 100 yr old mess and used for storage. As of now the 1020sq ft upstairs in what is available.

We really enjoyed out stay at the town hall. The place is very well done and furnished with everything we needed. Great location to trails and is easy to get to. Thanks lenny for providing a great place to stay.

your very welcome Sean!

02-14-2010, 12:15 AM
boy looking at those pics u never know u were on 2nd floor

02-14-2010, 05:16 PM
almost 4" of new snow since about 10 am. calling for 5-10. I'll keep you posted.

I have open dates from the 22nd on if you guys are looking for a place to stay. Trails were still pretty good before this new snow and seeing it's Sunday, this next week should be excellent.

02-20-2010, 11:27 PM
I took a ride today with my buddies and the snow was awesome. We rode on and off trail and found both conditions to be nice. Some icy corners but plenty of coverage. Snow expected this week, lets pray!

02-28-2010, 02:29 PM
The month of march starts tomorrow, we have a week coming up that has some warmer temp for highs during the daytime hrs. I am still recovering from a injury but willing to take guys out off trail soon. I wont be able to ride like I would like but will take you out if interested. Don't let the warm temps discourage you, this is when I get excited to ride, go out with a light pullover, enjoy not being cold, and ride where not many ride.

pics from a few days ago

04-08-2010, 06:11 PM
ATV'ing is awesome up here. We have lots of areas with wet spots all season. 2 wheel drive can go many places if you crawl through the muck. The UP is as good in the summer in many ways just like the winters. Lots of treasures to be found out in da woods

10-17-2010, 06:47 PM
the cold seems to be here, all week in low 50's and below freezing some evenings. It won't be odd to hear of some flurries anytime now.

Gonna be starting the downstairs of the "old town hall" this week late. For sure gonna post pic of all the progress. Wait till you see the current condition of the downstairs, as Duke Nukem would say "what a mess"

11-02-2010, 12:01 PM
are you going to show us pics of the downstairs progress? or waiting until the end to show it all off?

11-02-2010, 06:49 PM
yes I will, I insulated 3 attics today and got 1 more tomorrow so by noon I will be over there again and snap some pic.

11-03-2010, 12:10 PM
awesome. did you ever gets pics of the bedrooms?

11-03-2010, 04:44 PM
yes sir I did, not the best pics, just looking in through the door. I'll try an get some better ones soon, like advertising quality pics. Here are the few I got now.
I got some pictures to hang on the wall also

12-09-2010, 11:47 PM
finally added some pictures and had cable TV installed. Looks like were gonna have a flat screen for the downstairs unit. Lower unit should be good after first week in Jan, kinda like we finished the upper last season

12-13-2010, 08:39 AM
