In the south-central part of the U.P., you'll find a little town called Nahma, where Donna MacIntosh recently took a drive to visit her brother Charley and his wife Laurie. They are the proud new owners of the Nahma Inn Bed and Breakfast, having opened their doors the end of May. Donna tells me that not only is it a comfortable and beautiful setting for a restful stay, but that there's also quite a bit of history inside, starting with some of the antique furniture, to many of the old photos hanging throughout the place. I've included a few of the photos Donna took during her stay there, but for a better idea of the whole picture, click on over to this slideshow viewing: Nahma Inn. The map below will help you find your way there. Looks like this would be a nice get-away from anywhere in the U.P., without having to drive all day to get there. For more information or to make a reservation, call: 906-644-2486
Good luck Charley and Laurie!

Fantastic slideshow. It is a place I would love to stay for a couple of nights. ;O)

Last summer, when Nat and I went to Scotland, we stayed almost exclusively in B&B's. We found that for the cost, you couldn't beat it for a clean, well kept room and a great breakfast to start the day. Not sure what the breakfasts are like here in the States, but in Scotland they were huge; enough so you didn't eat until dinner.

Another nice aspect to B&B's; very friendly people that run them. We still keep in contact with the owners of 2 B&B's in Scotland and will likely spend a night or 2 in each when we visit again next summer.

Last week my wife and I peddled our tandem from Hubbell to Copper Harbor and staid at Dapple-Gray Bed & Breakfast. This is the large log cabin home a couple miles out of Copper Harbor near the Devilís wash bin. The home is filled with curious antiques, books, and a lot of World War I era posters. We were very impressed by the accommodations and the almond tort was delicious. We would highly recommend it.

I cannot wait to try the fish fry next week

The Nahma Inn Bed and Breakfast is a WONDERFUL place...and yes, maybe I'm partial...BUT...the food is phenomenal and the owners are GEMS!

The history of the area is quite interesting...U.P. lumber rebuilt Chicago after the big fire in the late 1800's....

Go and see Charley and Laurie. The Nahma Inn's phone number is 906-644-2486.

John DuLong...Thankyou for your comments about the Dapple Grey. It was one of two considerations for a place to stay for our next U.P. trip. Now it's the only consideration! Thanks!

By JAD, Oscar, MI (Jandalq) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 02:22 pm:

Not as fancy and much smaller, is Chip Durocher's place out in Freda, a new B&B. I can vouch for the food!

By Donna (Donna) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 07:13 pm:

I had homemade potato chips w/my burger at the Nahma Inn. Wow....I haven't had a homemade chip in a long, long time....Yummy.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 07:45 pm:

Thanks for all the tips, folks. You never know when they'll come in
handy. Is Chip in Freda one of Deb's relatives?

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 07:52 pm:

Freda itself is a gem - what is the name of Chip's B&B and where can we get more info?

The entire area around Nahma is full of history and interesting - not to mention picturesque. Highly worth your time to visit and explore.

By JAD, Oscar, MI (Jandalq) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 09:30 pm:

jbuck -- this is late so I may add it again tomorrow. Freda Cliffs' B & B. (906) 483-2348.
Owner is Clyde Durocher who was formerly part-owner of the Freda Restaurant.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 09:43 pm:

I always enjoyed the restaurant in Freda. Mmmm...broasted potatoes....

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 - 10:22 pm:

Clyde is my cousin but I didn't know he had a B & B. Gonna have to stop in there when I go to visit my uncle at his cottage on the lake. Thanks for the info. I was so sad when he gave up the Superior View. They had really good food.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 - 05:34 am:

I don't remember ever having been in Freda, I'll have to remedy
that this summer or next.

See how it is ? My kids are constantly amazed how everyone turns
out to be the relative of someone you know in the U.P.
