My wife and I took our whole family to Frankenmuth, MI to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Everyone had a great time. They raved about the service received from all the staff at the Lodge. Your not just 'another guest' at the Lodge. The staff was friendly, helpful and treated you with respect. Our nephew had a blast in the... More

Gorgeous town, wonderful relaxing family atmosphere. Barely any line ups for the waterslides. Kids had so much fun. Mom & Dad felt very relaxed. Rooms were spacious. Check in was quick. Wish the beds were queen (double).

We stayed in a whirlpool suite and it was beautiful and very clean. The pools are fun for younger kids to early teens and the game area is fun for all ages. The staff is amazing, friendly, polite and always smiling! My 6 year old son and I give it four thumbs up!

Me and my Husband visited for our 2 year Anniversary. The landscape, customer service, eating places beautiful. It was so amazing like a dream resort! Other customers even helped with our pictures so we both could be part of the shot. I told my husband we will be revisiting real soon... like within the next 2 months February Valentines Day...

We enjoy visiting this resort about every two months. My kids love it so much!! Brett in Oma's Restraunt is awesome !! A great server with a great personality!! My only suggestion is the arcade is getting too pricey. Some of the games take multiple tokens. I would spend more money in the arcade if it was a better value.... More

The rooms are just average. My kids did enjoy the arcade and mini golf. One of my problems was with the restaurant. There was a hair in my food. Also, the cable in the room kept going out. And the worst, is that housekeeping misplaced an item of mine. They apologized for losing it but I felt like something else... More

Helpful, cheery staff. So much to do you don't even need to leave the lodge. Clean, great food and service in the lounge and restaurant. The game room is greatly improved and the prizes you can win are better quality then in the past. We will be back next year. 7 years in a row for this family. Grandkids say... More
