Case Study: Baraga Lakeside Inn

You can have it all … Better lighting & less cost

At the Baraga Lakeside Inn, being green isn’t just about saving money or conserving the environment—it’s also about catering to a new kind of customer. General Manager Sue Brunet has transformed the hotel to meet the standards of the Green Hotels Association, as well as the desires of a growing number of visitors who seek out environmentally conscious options in the hospitality and tourism industry. The latest endeavor in this transformation is the installation of new LED lighting in the hotel lobby, halls, and restaurant.

The Baraga Lakeside Inn was the first hotel in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to earn the Green Hotel accreditation.
