This is a beautiful “Up North” lodge.....very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a Suite with two bedrooms, stocked kitchen, and a common room with small balcony. That’s the way to go if you have 2 couples. There is a lovely breakfast in the morning which is included (both hot and cold food). We took advantage of the warm inside pool, and large hot tub. A firepit on the lawn was a big hit. Cold water, iced tea, and hot coffee was available 24 hours per day in the lobby. The hotel has boats you can take out at no cost. The lawn is beautiful. The hotel is close to a number of restaurants, and Petoskey is only a few miles away. We visited there, and also Harbor Springs nearby. It’s just 45 minutes to the bridge from there. This was our 4th stay, and we will be back again soon! Highly recommend!

Nice hotel, quiet, near lots of places we wanted to go. The staff was very friendly and nice. I wasn't crazy about the mat in the bathtub. It didn't seem the cleanest way to avoid people slipping. Aside from that we really liked it. The balcony was really nice to have.
