I had the opportunity to stay at the Maple Lane Resort the weekend before Memorial Day for unfortunate circumstances. The staff couldn't be more helpful and kind! There was always someone to assist with any questions that we had and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was pleasant. I would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I stayed at Maple Lane Resort May 1 and 2, 2015. It was early enough in the season that their rates are lower (they go up in two weeks). It was great value for what we needed. THE GOODS: Location: We were there to boat and kayak, and Maple Lane resort has a dock on Little Glen... More

The room was so cozy, it felt like we were sleeping over at our Grandma's house (in a good way)! The bed was almost too comfortable! We loved the homey vibe and the water is literally a 30 second walk away. There were also some great outside activities.

We stayed at Maple Lane for a Valentines/Presidents' weekend getaway. We loved the Valentine's Day special of $75 for two nights! The room was attractive and comfy and everything worked fine. They don't have the 'gathering room' open in the winter, so no continental breakfast but we had a kitchenette room, which was handy. We had to request more coffee... More

Our stay with family at this resort was wonderful. There was plenty of room in the quaint carriage house to accommodate our two teens and was less like a hotel; had more of a house feel with the kitchen/dining area off to the side. The gathering room is a set alone building offering us privacy and perfect for our family... More

The room was quaint, but cold, very dusty and full of bugs. I thought I booked a cute B&B but the the second "B" was completely missing. The breakfast was a joke, and not worth even looking at. The in-room coffee maker was loaded with de-caf, half the light fixtures didn't work, the TV was completely unusable from the bed,... More

In short, I'd come back here, and would recommend it for group events like reunions, birthday parties, weddings. I highly appreciate the planning support by Amanda who helped my plan my 60 person event from afar (I was living in Shanghai at the time and booked this place sight-unseen based on reviews and info she gave). I was a little... More

Our extended family of 18 guests stayed here in October (8 adults and 10 kids). It was perfect for us. It's close to the Sleeping Bear Dunes where we spend most of our day. They provided a sweet and simple complimentary breakfast. The rooms were cute and clean. The manager was the best part! He was super personable and friendly.... More

Our company booked several rooms at Maple Lane Resort for a company fishing trip. The rooms were clean, moderately sized and overall, a good stay was had by all. The rooms we stayed in had 2 beds a couch/sleeper sofa, a TV and a small bathroom. Surrounding the hotel is a very nice wooded area close to the lake. I... More

My husband and I stayed at Maple Lane Resort this weekend, and we loved it. It was, as the title states, quaint and quiet. The water worked - it tasted and smelled fine - the room was clean, and it was centrally located near the lake, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and downtown Glen Arbor. It is a large mid-century style home...
