John and Esther Consul developed the Park Hotel and cabin complex in the 1943-46 period and the Consuls and related Schrader family members ran it until the 1 970s. The complex is an outstanding example of twentieth-century rustic log and rock construction, retaining some of its rustic log and tree stump finishes and furnishings. The hotel itself features a type of construction of large half-logs placed vertically in upper and lower stories that is not known to exist elsewhere in Michigan.
