General Information:

There are numerous motels (open and closed) in Brevort that are similar to this place. None of them are exact however in terms of size or design. Some are close but I can't be sure if this place is gone or standing. There is no motel operating in 2022 under this name in Brevort, that much is for sure. There were some mentions in the newspapers of this place but no street address.

Update July 29th, 2023: I have labored over this one on and off for many months and I believe I have the location nailed down. It matches up to the postcard location (18 miles west of the bridge if you follow the shoreline) and it did overlook Lake Michigan. The original building is long gone, but the 1950's historical aerial seems to show a structure of the right size and driveway shape. So for now I'll call it at 4054 U.S. Rte 2, Moran, MI 49760. The postcard indicates Brevort but that is right up the street.
