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...

My wife and I visited the resort the weekend after labor day. We were very pleased and very much enjoyed our stay. The staff was very nice and there to help where they could. Yes, they were having to flush the wells with bleach as was stated in another review here, but it was no where near the end of... More

Really enjoyed our stay on a quiet September evening. Our daughter ran around the yard, spent a lot of time talking to other guests and the manager around the campfire. A very family oriented place... the beds are a little old, the rooms a little dark, but for the fantastic location close to Glen arbor and Sleeping Bear dunes, this... More

my husband and I stayed for two nights in September to hike sleeping bear dunes, rented a kitchenette room on second floor and were not disappointed. bed was comfortable, kitchen had what we needed, and there was plenty of bottled water since the well was still out. favorite parts were the campfire (and the $5 s'more kit you can buy),...
