Thunder Bay Inn offers everything the outdoor enthusiast could desire, all in one place. Located in the village of Big Bay in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the historic Thunder Bay Inn offers access to all of the natural splendor that the area is famous for. With miles of forested trails, numerous waterfalls, lazy trout streams, the Huron Mountains, and the gorgeous Lake Superior shoreline, there’s fun to be had all four seasons. After a long day of hiking, fishing, or sightseeing, recuperate in one of the 17 comfortable guestrooms, or relax in the friendly atmosphere of the restaurant/pub room.


Once autumn arrives, the inn's property transforms into a sea of gold, red, and orange. There truly is no show greater than one put on by Mother Nature herself.


When it comes to water-fueled fun, this inn delivers. Reel in some trophy fish at Lake Independence or Lake Superior. And, if you'd prefer to stay on solid ground, Lake Superior's beach is the perfect place to catch a tan.
