We normally wouldn't have booked a deluxe suite but it was all that was available. It really was top notch (fireplace, jacuzzi tub in bedroom, deck from both living room & bedroom, beautiful kitchen & bathroom cabinetry) and extremely clean. Groundskeeper does a great job of keeping snow shoveling and stairways safe. We looked at other room types for our... More

We had picked the Frankfort/Elberta area for our October wedding just by looking online only. I had visited twice before the wedding and stayed at Harbor Lights each time. The location is perfect, right on the beach and right in town also. There are several different types of rooms so you should call to see which would best accommodate your... More

Our trip was a hastily planned couples get away. After finding all resorts in Traverse City fully booked, it stumbled on this Harbor Lights Resort in a Google search. We booked a deluxe room with jacuzzi and fire place, with lake view. When we checked in and got directions to our room, I thought darn, I'm not getting a beach... More

I stayed at Harbor Lights every weekend in Oct. 2013. From Indiana, its only 3 hours. The indoor pool and large hot tub were perfect, windows all around you can see waves on Lake Michigan while you are swimming, Cool. The grounds and rooms are impeccable and personnel very helpful and friendly. The get it-right ! Frankfort had a film... More

My husband and I decided to randomly book a hotel near traverse city. Frankfort is a ways away, but it's nicely tucked away as well. Harbor LIghts is on the water which is beautiful. We stayed in a first floor luxury room which was extremely spacious. It was a tiny apartment! The bathroom and kitchen were perfectly clean. The bed... More

On this trip my wife and I were staying in mostly "Choice Hotels" and I kinda needed a change. Well we couldn't have been more pleased. (Take in mind that we were here in the off season, which can make all the difference in the world.) But I must say that the location is outstanding and the little town is... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review about our property. One thing I wanted to clarify was the bug issue. Being in the fruit growing region of northwest Michigan (apples and cherries primarily), every so often during the month of September, we are faced with a little pest called the fruit fly. They are... More

This lakefront property is literally a two minute walk to main street. The staff was pleasant, the condo was nicely decorated and very clean. Again the location was amazing! Each morning we walked out on the pier and then tried a different bakery for great breakfast sandwiches. We traveled to Sleeping Bear dunes, Leelanau State Park, Point Betsie Lighthouse and... More

We were a bit wary of staying in such a big resort type complex, but the worry was unfounded. Maybe in the height of summer it would be mad, but at the end of September it was nice and quiet. We stayed in a ground floor king room which was large and clean, with a good shower and the decor... More

We have come to this lovely resort multiple times now staying in a variety of rooms or suites. Because we typically travel with 2 or 3 grandchildren we want a place with a small kitchen to accommodate the consistently hungry munchkins in our room! As long as we have the basics like a stove and refrigerator we are able to... More
