This is a beautiful place to stay! Staff was friendly and helpful! They were very consciences of COVID cleanliness. The outdoors was pretty, the "campfire" at night was great, bald eagle flying was fun! Pool area was clean and limited people at a time were permitted. Game room for the kids was nice! Breakfast had great options and was "to go". We will definitely stay again!

We loved everything about this lodge--the staff was wonderful, the rooms and their condition were outstanding. I'd have given it a 5+, except for one thing: the sound insulation in my room was really poor for such an otherwise high-end hotel. I could hear people talking normally in the room next to me, and I was kept up late by kids running back and forth--and I was on the top floor!

Beautiful setting, wonderful people and an opportunity to enjoy a time away. This lodge is situated between Petoskey and Mackinaw City making it perfect for our needs. The only drawback was the slow internet, which we needed for some business projects. We loved the pool and the gas fire on the deck. All in all it was a lovely stay.

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay after her birthday party. We looked elsewhere And the one place we did find was more expensive. They also have a bonfire on the patio and a gazebo that is lit for night time use this and a walking/hiking trail we did not take it manage of because of the time of night I and the time of year. But all in all we were extremely thrilled with the Room that we booked because it was a king sweet I will recommend this to anyone if you are able to.

The room was quiet and it had everything I could have needed. I stayed in a suite, had a complete kitchen and the bathroom was stocked with soap and shampoo. Not the normal small single use bottles. Great view, beautiful building inside and out. Attractively themed gathering areas on each floor near the elevator, and the room was affordable. If the room was available I would have stayed another night or two. Have already recommended to family and I plan on staying again in the future.
