We stayed at Halfway Lake Resort in July 2015. We were four adults (my parents, my husband, and myself) and two kids aged 6 and 7. We wanted a spot that was centrally located to some of our planned activities in the Upper Peninsula, including Tahquamenon Falls, Pictured Rocks, and the Lake Superior shoreline. The location was great for these... More

This was amazing! Felt more like a house than a cabin. So clean, homey and close to everything. We cant wait to come back. I highly recommend staying here. Oswalds bear farm, tacquamenmon falls, picture rocks, and more all within a reasonable drive.

The service was wonderful. Our cabin was perfect for the number of people that we had. If you want to get away from the big city, this is the place. I loved that I could cook outside or in the cabin, that it was by a lake, that you could stay there and relax and have things to do as... More

My family and I were able to book a room for 1 night for our U.P. trip and Halfway Lake Resort lived up to it's positive reviews. The cottages/cabins aren't fancy but they are clean, comfortable, and stocked with what you need. It was nice to be able to spread out a bit after being in standard hotel/motel rooms for... More

We booked here due to location, planning to take day trips to the Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls, and Pictured Rocks.This resort is also just a couple miles from Oswald's Bear Ranch, which made for a pleasant nearby outing. Our family of 8 booked 2 cabins, and we were pleased that we were given the only duplex cabin in the complex,... More

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary there. Best place to stay in upper MI. You are less than a days drive from everything. We rented Cabin 6. Our view of the lake was breath taking. We really enjoyed drinking our morning coffee, while enjoying the lake. If we ever go back to Upper Michigan, you can bet that this the... More

This was a family weekend destination and it was great! I knew my daughters and son-in-laws would like the quiet and the fishing. I was a little worried about my 12-yr old granddaughter but she LOVED it and wants to go back and stay longer! This small, quiet, secluded lake was great for canoeing and kayaking with the children. And... More

Beautiful setting on a quiet lake. Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to cook meals. Best asset was the screened in porch. SCREENS being the key, since every mosquito in MI was there! Every afternoon we'd sit and watch the butterfly and bee show, as they visited the aromatic lilac tree right outside our porch. Owners and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. We are delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. We are very grateful to have such an amazing hideaway in the forest, but spring can be a "buggy" time, no doubt. We hope to provide many more memories with a future visit. Please come again soon!...

We really enjoyed a girls weekend at Halfway Lake Resort. The cabin was clean and very well appointed with all appliances we needed. The view, lake and overall location is very quiet and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this resort.
