Midwest Living Review
The Upper Peninsula is a nature-lover's paradise, and Falling Rock Lodge B&B on Powell Lake in Wetmore is for those who want a truly unique North Woods adventure. Located in the Hiawatha National Forest along the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, this retreat features a 700-square-foot two-bedroom cottage and a separate two-bedroom suite above the garage. A freestanding wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the main-house living room. Your stay includes a breakfast basket of fresh roasted coffee from the Great Lakes Coffee Company, bagels, and delicious baked goods or coupons for breakfast at The Falling Rock Cafe and Bookstore in Munising. The best activities are right out the front door: groomed cross-country ski trails, snowmobile trails connecting to the main groomed trail system in Alger County, and ice fishing on Powell Lake. The adventurous and skilled might try ice climbing or dog sledding in nearby Munising. Frozen waterfalls and the lakeshore, historic lighthouses and the snow-covered countryside make great snapshots for amateur and professional photographers alike. The 27-mile Valley Spur -- located 5 miles from Munising -- offers 12 loops ideal for beginners or advanced cross-country skiers, as well as 5 miles of marked snowshoe trails. The first Saturday of March is the annual Taste and Glide a chance to cross-country ski from one trailside buffet. Try fishing, boating, cycling and just hanging out with a book the rest of the year.
