Located in historic Big Bay, and restored to its original splendor. Once the home-away-from-home for traveling Ford executives visiting the Big Bay automotive plant, Henry Ford's suite now plays host to tourists who wish to enjoy the tranquility of our wilderness and little village. In 1959, the hotel was the setting for the famous James Stewart film "Anatomy of a Murder". The movie was based on a true story about a murder which occurred just down the road at our local bar. The case gained local fame because it was the only murder in all of Big Bay history.

The Restaurant and Hotel are within walking distance of Lake Independence (a wonderful fishing lake) and just a mile from the beautiful sandy beaches of Lake Superior. Come visit us and relax on the beach or snowmobile the wilderness trails, sail the lakes or take a wilderness tour with the local outfitters, and if it's possible to tire of the peaceful atmosphere of our little town, take a drive to the quaint metropolis of Marquette, just 20 miles down the road, for shopping and U.P. culture

Thanks for Visiting,
