Default Skyline Motel - Epoufette - Groomer Bob's Motel

OK Folks, going to post this info up to let you know about a little gem in our area, the Skyline Motel, which is owned and operated by Groomer Bob and his parents. Bob is mostly responsible for your great trails on the West side of our system, and going up to Trout Lake, and has been the groomed mileage leader for several seasons now. This season with the snow conditions this season, lots of people are heading more North to ride along Superior and they have has less then half of their normal seasonal rooms. They could really use some new people checking out their establishment, so I want to try to help get the word out because staying there helps out Bob, and Bob grooms 3-4 days a week for us.

The Motel was all just re-done inside over the last year so is nice inside.

It is in Epoufette, which is 30 minutes West of St. Ignace on US-2. It is an easy drive to get there, and a great place to base out of for a weekend of riding. The trails connect right across the street and next door is great food at the Skyline Restaurant, and it is right across the street from a bar at the Cut River Inn. With the snow conditions this season, lots of people are heading more North to ride and they have has less then half of their normal seasonal rooms.

Skyline Motel

Think about changing it up and staying a little West of Iggy, you are ride to lots of great places from there. Let them know that you saw the post here, and most important that you appreciate all of Bob's hard volunteer work!

And if you are at all scared about the slightly thin trail leaving Iggy, then Epoufette is a perfect solution. You can be in Newberry or Trout Lake by sled in about 25 minutes.
