We heard from friends and saw online, great reviews of this place. Right when we showed up we knew that the pictures were misleading. There was no room in our unit when online it looked large. There was dust and spiderwebs everywhere and it really felt that we were sleeping in "chimneys" and "corners". Management was SOOO rude to us... More

This is a full service resort which offers everything and is a first rate operation. We enjoyed our stay here very much. There is so much to offer for people of any age. There's swimming in crystal clear Crystal Lake, boating, tennis, golf (nearby) hiking and bicycling. The Sleeping Bear Dunes are very close. We stayed in the Lodge Apartment... More

A friend recommended this resort to me. I went once and have been returning every summer since. (I missed one summer two years ago when my granddaughter was born. When I contacted Becky at the resort, she was very understanding and said we could miss a year and still come back to the same place the next year.) Speaking of... More

Friends of ours told my parents about Chimney Corners over a year ago. For my parent's 40th wedding anniversary, the whole family got together and stayed all over. We rented 2 rooms in the lodge and 2 cabins - 1 on the water and 1 next to the lodge. We loved everything about our stay! The accommodations were lovely and... More

I can't recommend this resort enough ways! I stayed in the West Hills Apartment 1. The two cabins at the top of the first hill, overlooking Crystal Lake, are newly furnished. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is nicely outfitted. One of my favorite things to do is sit on the patio and look out over the blue blue... More

My family has been vacationing here every year, literally since before I was born. It's a part of me. When I swim in the lake, dig my toes into the sand, rock myself in the swing or relax in an adirondack chair I feel at home. Jim and Mary have done a nice job keeping the resort old fashioned while... More

I took my two college aged daughters to Chimney Corners Resort for a weekend in June, and had a magical time, as usual. We head back up next week with my 84 year old mom and sister. I always end up feeling as if we are headed back in time, back home when we come. It might be the rooms... More

Beautiful vintage resort! NO need for phones, although there is free wifi. Plenty to do to keep all ages entertained. Swimming,paddleboarding, tennis, basketball, great hiking trails etc... No need to bring chairs to the beach, there are provided for you. Cooled off at night so we had a fire in the kettle down by the beach. Great food at the... More

Stopped here to enquire about restaurant and facilities for an upcoming wedding. The staff member could not have been more rude to us. Her dialog was curt, disinterested and completely inappropriate for a person in the service industry. Every question I had was met with"you can find that answer on our website". "Quaint"doesn't go far for us unless it is... More
