This place goes back to the 1950's and must have been fairly sizable as the dining room sat over 1000. There was also motel accommodations. It was on the Pine River on M-134 just East of I-75. I don't have an exterior photo of this place so it's hard to tell where it was exactly. I am not seeing anything on the aerial photos other than what looks to be a structure on the 1975 photo.
