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),...

This place should be shut down by the health dept. No water to drink because of a well problem they were trying to fix with bleach. They did not clean our room or take out the trash for 2 days. Im surprised they would even rent rooms with bad problems like this. The owners should shut down the place or... More

When we arrived we were told not to drink the water because the well was being treated for contamination. We were given bottle water. We were told we could use the water after 6 PM which we did to shower. There was no ice available for beverages. The smell of bleach was overwhelming. We chose not to drink the water... More

The location was great and it was a short walk to Glen Lake, which was nice for swimming. There were Kayaks available to use at no extra cost which we enjoyed. They also offered a bonfire in the backyard. Breakfast was included, but was continental only. Cereal, mini muffins... The room was clean but very basic and the bathroom was... More

We spent one night here on a cross country journey. I suppose that the charge is worth it if you are staying for a few days and using their facilities. The closeness to the lake, Sleeping Bear and the cute town of Glen Arbor make it a good spot to visit. Our room in the main house was stuffy and... More

I have been traveling to Glen Arbor area for over 35 years, and I have stayed at Maple Lane Resort many times. It is simply the best place to stay in the area. No it's not the most modern hotel with saunas and exercise facilities, with a swimming pool and hot tub; it is instead a rustic getaway with a... More

We stumbled upon Maple Lane Resort two years ago, when touring the Glen Arbor/Sleeping Bear Dunes area. It's cute and clean, and homey!! If you want stuffy bells and whistles, this is not your place. This has a cottage family friendly feel. The lot is expansive, so you feel you can let your kids roam the back park-like yard, which... More
