Great place to take the kids. My girlfriend and I stayed here. Can't say enough good things about the front desk service and the owner was so nice to us. The rooms in the resort are a lot of nicer than I expected. We're definitely coming back to this place again.

Their chalets are down lower, closer to the lake. The cabin was clean when we arrived. These are michigan cabins, knotty pine and good cabin ambiance, I didn't go... More
