Snowmobiling

The U.P. Sunrise Cottages is a great home base for a snowmobiling adventure in the Upper Peninsula!

Here is a quick rundown of the Frequently Asked Questions we get from snowmobilers:

Where are you located?

We are located in the central Upper Peninsula, less than a mile from Trail 8 in Little Lake. Trail 8 will connect you to anywhere you want to ride: Munising, Pictured Rocks, Marquette, Big Bay, Houghton, and so on. We are about 25 miles from Marquette, and about 40 miles from Munising.

How far are you from the snowmobile trails?

You can ride right out of the resort to access Trail #8 (see map) in less than two minutes along the shoulder of County Rd 456, with the option of riding the powerline right of way most of the way to the trail.

Is there food and fuel nearby?

Brown’s Store is just minutes away for fuel, basic groceries, butcher counter, premade sandwiches and pasty pies. Right next door to Brown’s, The Throttle Bar and Grill is popular for some post-ride grub (don’t forget to bring your snowmobile club sticker for the wall in the restroom).

Do you have parking for snowmobile trailers?

Some of the cottages have room to park a truck and trailer right at the cottage. There is additional pull-through parking available for several large trailers along our driveway.
