About Jim Kantola

Our family enjoys using this property for events and just to 'get away for the holidays'

Jim Kantola purchased this lodge in 2001

Why Jim Kantola chose Negaunee

The depot is centrally located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is the perfect in between meeting spot if you have families in lower Michigan and Wisconsin.

What makes this lodge unique

Our love of old buildings and history inspired us to restore the depot.

Overnight lodging after leaving Isle Royale National Park

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 stayed at the station on our way back down state from Isle Royale National Park. My daughter was flying out the following morning from the Marquette airport so the location was very convenient yet still very unique lodging. I appreciated the fact that we were allowed to stay for just the one night we requested as many locations in the Upper Peninsula had multiple night requirements. Station was very clean for such a large location and decorated and remodeled very tastefully. We just couldn't get over how cool a location it is. Would love to stay again with maybe a larger group.

Wedding Reception!

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to write a review for some time now. My husband and I were married in Marquette. We had a small destination wedding and were looking for a unique place to hold our reception. The Union Station worked out wonderfully!!! It is in a great location..lots to do and very close to Marquette. Because of the decor and the beautiful job the owners have done restoring the station very little decoration on our part was needed.( Many compliments on the venue by our guests) The owners and staff were very accommodating and quickly helped us with whatever we needed. The station is very spacious and clean! Tons of amenities! We could not have been happier with our experience and plan to find a reason to stay again!

Perfect for what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My roller derby team stayed here in July of 2015. They were able to accommodate our groups needs with ease. Love that it was in a small town so easy to run to grocery store, yet still feel connected with outdoors. Centrally located to outdoor activities and not far from Marquette where our bout was being held. We were able to have the team meet at this location for a bonfire and any meals. Absolutely would recommend this location!

Unique and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 tween/teen daughters and my sister stayed at the depot for 3 nights and were very impressed. Decor is Restoration Hardware chic right down to the hot water pipes. It's ridiculously spacious and pleasantly tidy (no cabin-y smells or spiders) We loved being so close to the iron trail for morning runs and evening walks. Easy to explore nearby Marquette. Pizza on the corner was yummy.
