MOOSE RESORT is an at your own risk property.
Prior to booking please understand that all amenities provided for guest use are at your own risk.
The beach area does not have any form of lifeguard or regulated supervision. All guests should be VERY aware when crossing the highway separating the main property from the beach area. Children under 12 and pets must be accompanied to and while at the beach. Use of beach picnic areas , are at your own risk. US Highway 2 is a 2 lane highway speed limit 65. The Highway can get busy in the summer as it is the main east west southern corridor in the Upper Peninsula. Although at night it calms quite nicely as people settle in to their destinations. Our facility was built in 1951 originally as a log structure over time there were some major remodeling and of course our ongoing improvements. The effect of additional drywall and insulation added a pretty good benefit to noise reduction the thick walls between rooms (most are 8" inch thick or more) create a great barrier for room to room sound transmission. The sounds of the highway are mitigated nicely but you will hear a truck or loud Harley :-) They will be quite muted but it is the nature of the facility considering the proximity to the road. Overall If you have stayed at off the road motels and hotels before, we think you will be pleasantly surprised with our rooms sound quality. Even as every room has a panoramic view of Big Bay we have such an inviting lakefront across the road we would most definitely think you would want to get over there. As far as "how safe it is to cross?" We do have a sweeping view left and right on the road and we encourage people to take their time and just be aware. With the crossing in mind we provide a portable toilet changing room every summer on the lakeside to reduce the number of crossing's for families enjoying the beach/park area. To give a better understanding of our proximity to the highway and help with your questions , you can look at our drone video on our website and that may help. If there is anything else we can help with please don't hesitate to ask.
We want you to have a safe and enjoyable experience here at DA "Moose"!
