Richard and Cathy Chrisman
Established in 1980, we set out on our main goal...family. With 6 children in tow, we uprooted from our home in Northern Michigan, over the Mackinac Bridge to beautiful Escanaba in 1994. Years later our family of 8 grew and grew welcoming 15 grandchildren with an extra two great grandchildren. July 2014 The Hiawatha Motel became a part of the family. Michigan based, locally owned, and most importantly, family operated. Remember where you came from, know where you're going and enjoy the journey.
We welcome you to come and stay with us.
