We travel to the area once or twice a year to ski. When I travel with the family we usually stay at the Crooked River Lodge because we like the one and two bedroom suites that give us the room we need for the family.

We went here for a weekend getaway, and feel in love. The staff, cleanliness, activities to do, and the location were perfect. You can do kayaking on the river, snowshoes and country skiing in the winter, pool is open 24/7, kids have to be out by 7 or 9 I can't remember, then it's adults only. Fire pits outside on...

Great "up north" location. Close to everything in northern Michigan...Petoskey, Charlevoix, Cheboygan and Mackinac. No fitness center but plenty of outdoor activities for all seasons...hiking, biking, skiing.

My husband and I are avid snowmobilers. We crossed the Mackie and came down to Alanson to check out the other side of the bridge and found the area to be quaint and quite accessible by snowmobile. The Crooked River Lodge is a gem! We really appreciated the artesian springs that fed the lodge. In addition, the hot tub and...

Extremely great place to stay for the money if you like to ski or snowmobile! My wife and I did a one day snowmobile trip and the best thing was that Crooked River Lodge offers pet rooms. This is the first I've stayed at the lodge since Stafford's took over and they made it ten times better than previous ownership....
