Port Austin is located at the tip of Michigan’s thumb.  The Blue Spruce and Lucky Horseshoe Motels are located downtown,  just a short 3 blocks from the Harbor.  Nineteen motel rooms, eight cabins, and  a three bedroom cottage are nestled over 2 acres with free WI-FI.

You can sit by the fire pit to enjoy the stars, or how about a picnic in one of our two common areas with picnic tables and grills. We were so excited to add a brand new heated pool for our guests in 2005.  Just bring your pool towels and relax in the sun!

Our History

We bought the Blue Spruce with its original five motel rooms in 1995 and renovated them.  We added two new cabins a few years later and in 1999 we built eight new non-smoking rooms.  Each motel room and all the cabins are air conditioned to make your stay more comfortable.

We’ve been steadily renovating the Lucky Horseshoe since its purchase in 2001 and built two 2-bedroom cabins in 2004.  The three bedroom cottage was acquired in 2005.  It was originally built as a carriage house in the late 1800’s and converted to a cottage later.  The original stone fireplace is still there, although it’s no longer functioning.

There are new doors and windows on the Blue Spruce units 1 through 5 and at the Lucky Horseshoe in units 6 through 11. Cottage C received new windows in 2009 and new doors and an exterior face lift in 2014. Cabin B was built brand new in 2017.

The parking lot at the Blue Spruce is black topped and there is ample boat parking at the Lucky Horseshoe.  Sorry, but no pets are allowed.
