RAINBOW LODGE is located at the mouth of the Big Two Hearted River in the Upper Peninsula. It overlooks Lake Superior - the "Big Sea" of the north country. The 34 mile drive from Newberry or 30 miles from Paradise will take you into the heart of the Lake Superior State Forest. The beauty and romance of Hemingway's Big Two Hearted is yours.

The Big Two Hearted River is rated among the top ten trout streams in the U.S.A. Many inland lakes are located nearby with walleye, northern pike, perch, bass, and panfish with public access and campgrounds. FISH WHERE THE FISH ARE

RAINBOW LODGE welcomes you for hunting, fishing, canoeing, rock-hounding, ATVing, or just plain relaxing.

The Chapel of the Two Heart

The Chapel of the Two Heart was built in the summer of 2006 by Richard and Kathy Robinson and family, and the help of many volunteers; many of whom vacation here each year. Unfortunately, the Chapel burned down in the Duck Lake Fire, but rebuilding is progressing nicely. Visit our Facebook Page for information. The Chapel will be ready for use by the summer of 2014.

All are invited to use the chapel for reflection and prayer, in the hope that inspiration, faith, love, and fellowship be found.

 The chapel of the Two Heart is dedicated to God and to all those who pass by this beautiful and special place......TWO HEART COUNTRY, and to those who are no longer able to come back and visit anymore.


The Two Hearted River, immortalized by Ernest Hemingway for its beauty and wilderness, is unmatched by most other rivers which you may have canoed before.

"While Nick walked through the little stretch of meadow alongside the stream, trout had jumped high out of water. Now as he looked down the river, the insects must be settling on the surface, for the trout were feeding steadily all down the stream. As far down the long stretch as he could see, the trout were rising, making circles all down the surface of the water, as though it were starting to rain."
from Big Two-Hearted River by Ernest Hemingway.
