Trailside Motel, a family friendly motel, previously known as the Villa Mar,
is revitalized and reopened in June 2015.
We have 15 units available and are open year round. We are centrally located between Newaygo, White Cloud, Fremont, and Croton and Hardy Ponds on the west side of M-37 in Newaygo County. Newaygo County is in the heart of West Michigan and is home to 234 lakes, 356 miles of rivers and streams, and over 100,000 acres of Manistee National Forest.

Trailside is 1/8 mile from the North Country Hiking Trail, 1/4 mile form the Newaygo County Snowmobile Trail, and minutes away from the Newaygo County Visitor Center. We are 5 miles from the White River and a short distance from many inland lakes such as Pickerel, Emerald, Kimball, and Sylvan Lakes, also known as the Chain of Lakes.

Seasonal sports enthusiasts may enjoy swimming, kayaking, tubing down the Muskegon River, riding on ATV trails, fishing, hiking, hunting, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, ice fishing, cross-country skiing, sledding and much more.
