It was a nice hotel but the breakfast was very lacking. There is no restaurant on the grounds. Kayaks and paddle boats are provided at no additional charge. There is only one ice maker on the ground floor. It was clean and quiet. There is "gas" log fire pit outdoors with chairs provided for an evening camp fire. There is... More

We were circumnavigating Lake Michigan and came across Crooked River Lodge. What a nice place! Price was good, had a great room, free breakfast, and really nice people. Walking distance to a local bar and a good restaurant. Would stay here again.

I stayed here with my mom and our 2 children. The hotel is really well themed with an Up North feel. We stayed in a 2 Queens room. Very spacious, comfortable beds and a nice balcony overlooking the lawn and pond. There is a lot to do at the hotel. The pool and spa are great. They have a built... More

I saw the great reviews for this location and figured it would be a good place to stop on our way back south from Mackinac Island. I was right. Rooms are very big, balcony as well. Grounds are vast and have peddle boats and kayaks along with nature trails. Breakfast was standard for a similar type hotel and complementary. Lobby... More

Recently enjoyed a stay at Stafford's Crooked River Lodge. Perfect location for visits to Mackinac Island, Harbor Spring, Petosky and with a bit of a drive, Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes. Every employee, from the desk staff to housekeeping or groundskeepers, greeted us with a friendly hello. The gem in the staff crown is Janet, overseeing the yummy... More

Great family or couple place for vacation. Beautiful grounds, kayaks available. Right on the water with tons of wildlife. There's nature trails for hiking. There's an indoor pool and hot tub . A beautiful fire pit for watching sunset. The best free breakfast

We were in northern Michigan for the Independence Day holiday and were thoroughly impressed with our four night stay at the Crooked River Lodge. The property has beautiful grounds and some activities for the kids, including an adorable play house off the lobby. We used the paddle boats, pool and hot tube.I loved the nightly popcorn, which we ate around... More

Had a great experience with the Crooked River. Nice big rooms, great breakfast and beautiful hotel grounds. We had a hot dog/picnic cookout the day of the wedding. Lots of tables with umbrellas and they had 3 gas grills with utensils that we could use. We will be back! Thank you!

My mom, sisters and I went on my first weekend way with my 9 week old daughter. After searching and searching for accommodations, we picked Crooked River Lodge. I am so glad we did! Would absolutely stay there again! To start, we arrived 3 or 4 hours ahead of check in time, and they had our room ready for us... More

Found this beauty by chance! Looking for a place to sleep for one night but got an amazing overnight stay. Pool/ jacuzzi is open 24 hours for adults. Suite was more like an apartment. Plenty of room to roam around the hotel grounds. Fireplace inside and out, coffee 24 hours, complimentary breakfast. The staff were amazing, friendly, talkative. And did... More
