Freighter's View on the Bay offers comfortable overnight accommodations year round. Located on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay, Freighter's View offers you a unique opportunity to unwind, relax, and regenerate. We are a small motel with a cabin feel. Our decor is simple, comfortable, and clean. The beauty lies in the area that surrounds us. Each room has a view of Lake Superior and the opportunity to spot freighters as they move upbound and downbound to the Soo Locks.

Popular sites in our area include Tahquamenon Falls, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, and the Tahquamenon River mouth. Paradise is located two miles south with restaurants, gift stores, and a gas station. Situated just a bit north and across the bay from the St. Mary’s River mouth, our guests are often delighted to see the Great Lakes freighters as they are traveling to and from the Soo Locks.

About Us    Follow us on Facebook

Cleanliness  We were fortunate when we purchased Freighter's View on the Bay. John, the previous owner had good routines to manage inquiries and the facilities. One of our personal goals has been to provide a clean, quiet environment for our guests. Our linens are professionally cleaned by Northern Linens out of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. We like the pressed linens. This assures our guests a clean sterilized bed in which to rest. We then take care to clean our rooms as we would like them to be cleaned for us. Believe me, we have become very attentitive to clean rooms since we've entered this business nearly six years ago.

Check In and Check Out  Check in time is 3:00 PM. Check out time is 10:00 AM. We hope you enjoy your stay.

Room Rates  Our room rates are based on several factors, the time of year, the type of room, the number of nights you stay, and the number of people staying in the room. Between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend, our rates are about $10.00 higher. The kitchenette runs approximately $10.00 higher then the basic room which is most like a conventional motel room. Our highest rates are for a one night stay, if you stay two or more nights we offer a discount. If you stay four plus nights we offer a greater discount per night. Pets? We love pets. We've been fortunate to have a couple of wonderful pets over the years and we respect others that enjoy pets and those that can not tolerate pet dander. So we elected to have two pet friendly rooms and two pet free rooms. We have a one time $5.00 fee for pet guests whether you stay one night or two. But please, take a moment to review our pet policies as we would like all of guests to enjoy their stay, including our pet guests. It is our hope to offer our guests a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable rate. Don't hesitate to give us a call for availability and rates.
