Me too... I sure didn't know at the time that those would be the last pictures I'd be able to get of the place. If I ever get rich (ha ha), it'd be great fun to rebuild a Pines Hotel on the same spot. Or maybe buy the bar and make it like it was in the Andy's Place days. Well, there's little danger of impending wealth for me Wink so those things are pretty far-fetched!

Take care,
Dan

Yes, I'm so glad I still have this one. Actually, I had two and donated one to the BBI Historical Society museum.

Hi Hey what happened to all the people that used the motel. Was it a good place to stay. Why didn't it get rebuilt?

Dan and Jenny Kruszynski were the last owners/proprietors of the Hotel in 1984. Jenny is a member of this site and has posted messages on a couple of occasions. They were always great to us.

Wow, loved the Pines Motel brochure and old photos. Sounds like you had tons of deer back then according to the brochure. Any idea how many are on the island now compared to then? Very Happy

Not being a hunter, I can't comment on the deer herd with any authority. However, I can say that I see as many deer on the Island now as I did back then, maybe even more.

The Hotel brochure is neat. I used to have a whole assortment of "artifacts" - the brochure, postcards, a bumper sticker that said "Follow me to The Pines Hotel, Bois Blanc Island, Michigan", patches, etc. I donated some of those things to the Island historical museum, although they don't appear to be on display there anymore. I think I still have one of the patches. Wish I had bought more of those things when the Hotel was still with us.

The Pines was a great gathering place. As a college student I tried to come once a summer to stay. Then when I entered corporate America I would use my 2 long weekends on the Island at the Pines to recharge my batteries. I loved the beds that sagged a little, the bathroom down the hall, the poker games, the sing alongs, the eat what's on the menu tonight, I guess just the entire experience!
