kakabika fallsPaulding is an historic town in south Ontonagon County.  It is a perfect spot for a getaway that is centered around nature destinations.  There are a number of hiking and ORV trails, three waterfalls are nearby and it is just a short scenic drive to downtown Ontonagon.

Nature has smiled on this area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with its beautiful forests of spruce, balsam, maple, birch, and aspen. Your stay here will be highlighted by sightings of white tail deer, American bald eagles, loons, black, bear, coyotes, and even illusive timber wolves and moose.  Paulding is surrounded by Ottawa National Forest land today, was once a busy sawmill town surrounded by logging activity. It still has a general store, a tavern, and a few other businesses and houses. Fishing and hunting are major pursuits today.

With snow covering the ground here from November until April, winter sports enthusiasts love our magnificent winters. Located about an hour’s drive from several downhill ski hills, we have it all! Snowmobile, ice fishing, ski, snowshoe, sled, sightsee, or just relax. Do a little or do a lot.

You’ll long remember the breathtaking winter scenery and peacefulness here.
