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

We took M-22 Scenic drive up the coast from Manistee, through Charlevoix and Petoskey. When we left charming Petoskey, we entered a very rural looking area and thought, "Uh oh"....until we hit the Crooked River Lodge. It looked just like the very expensive log cabin I rented in the Smokey Mountains, only the price was great! Clean rooms, pool/hot tub,... More

We spent two days here and loved it. There was a much for us to do. If you choose not to stay there than you're only less than 15 minutes away from Petoskey. We stayed in one of the suites with a Jacuzzi jet tub and the room size was perfect and it included a stove, microwave, a mini kitchen... More

We loved staying here and hope to do so again! The lodge manager was so friendly and extremely helpful! She definitely showed she loved her job through her actions! The lodge and grounds were gorgeous and the rooms were spacious and clean! The outdoor fireplace and seating area was a hit for several guests! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

What an absolutely wonderful place! We booked this trip at the last minute before Valentine's day and President's day weekend because our previous reservation at another local hotel got screwed up. We were told that we'd probably have to change rooms (we were staying for 3 nights on a ski weekend, so we had a lot of gear) but when... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Crooked River Lodge from our comfortable room with a huge jacuzzi tub to the friendly service to the hot buffet breakfast to the free snowshoes they offered for touring the area. The lobby is warm, cozy, and inviting with a big fireplace and comfortable furniture and they also have a separate game... More
