Stayed here while on a whirlwind tour of Michigan with my wife, sister and brother-in-law. Met at the entrance by the person on duty who was very friendly and informative. She gave us a tour of the lodge including a history of the building. We noticed a For Sale sign outside and she told us the owners have another place... More

We loved staying here. Very unique and cozy. Cutely decorated with lots of different antiques. Set in a private wooded area where we even saw deer with there babies my daughter loved it. Staff was friendly and even mailed our towels back at no charge when we forgot them. Would definitely recommend!

Yes it is a little run down but it was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The walk to the beach was about one minute and it would be a great place to stay for a family reunion. We stayed on the top floor and it's a shared bathroom but no one else was on the floor so we had it... More

We stayed at the Khardomah Lodge for one week. The location is excellent, a short walk to the beach and a short drive into town. The neighborhood and beaches are great. The house is large and has plenty of room to spread out, especially on the back deck looking out into the woods and the front porch. Unfortunately, the house... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night while travelling through Michigan and we were very pleased with our stay here. I called around 1:30 the day of our check in (which isn't supposed to be until four) but we were in town early and were seeing if we could get into our room and it was ready and... More

While Sally, the manager, tried to make our stay comfortable, the owner launched into a noisy project hammering over our heads until we got out of bed at 10:30 to ask her to stop. Very insensitive to guests. Overall it is rather run down and filled with lumpy furniture and tired linens. The oven in the master suite was filthy.... More

We felt that this place had seen better days. It is very gloomy and dark.Odd setup with half the doors in the house opening directly into people's rooms. Dont recommend

PetoskeyInnkeeper, Owner at Khardomah Lodge, responded to this review

Most of our guests do not feel the lodge is gloomy and dark. It is the original wood tongue and groove pine paneling, and like the other cottages in the area, it is what a cottage is supposed to be like, cozy, warm, nostalgic. It is very clean, and the rooms are exactly as pictured configured as they have been... More

The lodge accommodated 45 guests perfectly. We were able to cook, congregate, walk to the lake and downtown. Everyone that stayed loved the lodge and Grand Haven!
