Not many realize that when it comes to real value, family fun and gracious service, performed by genuinely friendly personnel, that we have one of the very best - right here in our own backyard. The reason that it isn't more widely known? Actually, it is! It's just that those of us who actually live here do not usually stay... More

Enjoyed our visit and everything was very nice. Great location and nice room. Be very careful of their boat launch area....mucky and very dangerous because the muck is 2ft. deep. Great outdoor fire pit and landscaped very nice.

Great breakfast, rooms were good but beds were somewhat stiff. That would be my only complaint. We have stayed here before and it's a beautiful property! Stayed in handicap room because of a broken ankle and everything was good there. Not far from tunnel of trees, leggs inn (which is quite overrated in my opinion).

Cute little place. Our room was huge and comfortable with all the amenities you could need! Breakfast the next morning was bountiful and very good. Wish we could've stayed longer! The hot cocoa was the best and liked having the coffee pot in the room and the complimentary all day service. Thank you for a good stay!

This was our first time staying at Crooked Lodge...and it certainly won't be the last. It was amazing! We stayed on a Sunday night, October 2015. The outside and inside was beautiful...wonderful log cabin lodge feel and atmosphere. It was very quiet day and night. Nice area to relax, collect your thoughts, get away from town and city life for... More

Hotel staff very friendly. Rooms very nice, ours actually had a real bedroom. Balcony with nice view. Hot breakfast with egg casserole, sausage, waffles, fruit, yogurt, assorted breads and doughnuts. Juice and coffee or tea. Beautiful stone fireplace and nice fire pit. PooI with waterfall (little chilly) but hot tub nice. I would definitely go back.

Very nice, clean lodge. All staff went the extra mile for our large group. John was particularly helpful. The location is central to Mackinaw City, Petoskey, Harbor Springs & Gaylord. We had the inland suite & river view suite which are connected and away from the other rooms and up an open staircase off the lobby. I did not see... More
