Black River Lodge is a family owned-and-operated resort-style Lodge with an established reputation of offering memorable weddings, reunions, group retreats, and get-away weekends. If you are looking for a different kind of lodging experience, this is it! Guests of the Lodge enjoy a variety of amenitites, such as unique spacious Lodge suites, studios and townhouses, the largest indoor swimming pool in the county, hot tub, on-site bar, delux continental breakfast, and a relaxing, laid-back social atmosphere. We are located only 10 minutes north east of Ironwood, Michigan on the Black River Scenic Byway. Black River Lodge is ideal for those looking to escape the everyday and relax in a serene country setting. Come where the northern lights dance, the coyote howl, deer roam, and the unique Northwoods-themed lodge rooms, condo suites, townhouses, and campground await your arrival. BRL is often raved about as a rare find for travelers in the Western Upper Peninsula area and offers a social, relaxed atmosphere with unique accommodations which are unlike typical cookie-cutter hotel rooms. Not sure what that means? Just check out our accommodations HERE. Innkeepers, Justin & Brittany, live right on site and strive to provide a personal experience and service unlike any other. The lodge itself is located on 65 acres of forests and trails and offers direct access to the Black River! What’s your ideal adventure? Black River Lodge and the surrounding area has much to offer such as downhill and Nordic skiing, snowmobile trails, snowshoeing, campfires, volleyball, horseshoes, waterfalls, Lake Superior hiking, fishing, golf, bicycling….. or hey, if you just want to relax with a good book, that’s OK too! Guests are very special, and from the moment of your arrival, the Lodge will offer warm hospitality and excellent facilities. Justin, Brittany, their family and staff are committed to providing a quality Northwood’s experience. Rest assured, here you will come as guests and leave as friends! For reservations, email

Another summer season is coming to a close and we want to give a huge shout out and THANK YOU to everyone who visited us this season! We have some amazing projects in the works for next Summer and have some announcements coming soon!!! Until then, we are beginning to prepare for the upcoming winter tourist season and will have a brief hiatus to do so. During this time, we will be knocking things off our ever growing project list and taking some much needed personal time after working 120 days straight (you read that right! Again, thanks for keeping us busy this summer!)
If you have a pre-planned group reservation in December or anytime this winter, I will be in touch very soon to continue finalizing.
All standard reservations may be made on our direct booking engine 24/7 at your convenience during hiatus (linked below).
We will NOT be available by phone, email, or text during hiatus for new inquiries. Book online. We will respond to all messages after Dec 1.
If you have questions about winter travel, events, or group stays, we encourage you to reach out (text is best!) before we close on 10/20, or after December 1. Most questions can be answered using our FAQ page on our website (linked below)
We will NOT be available for event consultations/tours during hiatus. See link in comments to reserve a consultation after Dec 1.
