Stayed in a 5th floor suite that overlooked the lake. The front desk staff was very helpful in giving us advice about things to do around town (we went snowshoeing). The room was very large and had everything we needed. Definitely would stay again.

My wife and I have enjoyed weekend getaways to Traverse City for more than 20 years. This location has become our favorite and is our first choice during the off-season (winter). During our last stay, 2 other couples joined us for our weekend away. While we normally book three rooms, Tamarack is actually a condo/timeshare "hotel" that offers three bedroom... More

We sent the wives away for a long weekend to the Tamarack Lodge and they were truly impressed. They raved about the view of the bay, the size of the rooms, the comfortable beds and the overall decor of the hotel. We set up the trip for the wives as a thank you for them putting up with us the... More

We really lucked into finding Tamarack Lodge for our 2013 vacation so we went back for our 2014 vacation! The entire place was just amazing; very comfortable and beautiful. Staff was very helpful, grounds were very nice, view was great and location was perfect. Everything was very family friendly and peaceful and quiet at night. We absolutely love the nightly... More

My wife and I stayed here for the duration of our honeymoon in a 5th floor penthouse jr suite, and we loved it! The architecture, the furnishings, the free coffee/tea, cookies, and s'mores all made our stay enjoyable. We loved the huge jacuzzi tub in our room that was so relaxing to be in while we listened to the waves... More

This was a first stay, and it was much more than we expected. Booking the pent house on the 5th floor proved to be an excellent idea for a birthday celebration. Our condo consisted of two tastefully appointed bedrooms, one with Jacuzzi tub overlooking Lake Michigan. The main living area was very large with gas fireplace, some travel books, large... More

This is second time I booked here. We got a similar condo with a king size bed and Queen lock-off unit for my mother. The place is still in great shape since the last time we stayed which was 6 years ago. Very comfortable and accommodates great views of the east bay. The beach was fairy eroded but that was... More

We stayed for two days in Sepember. This property is very well maintained and very attractively appointed. It is not remote but located directly on the water. The staff is pleasant and efficient. This is a condo style set up so there is no restaurant on site. We would have appreciated a fitness center but in summer there are many... More

My wife and I stayed at Tamarack Lodge recently for a long getaway weekend. The accomodations were spacious and modern with high quality kitchen appliances and a washer/dryer. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The beach was very nice - they even had a little food service area where they served reasonably priced grilled food and drinks. We did quite... More

Third time staying and always excellent. Beautiful building and great staff. This is the first time taking small son (3) and he loved and the staff was great with him. I highly recommend staying and at very least walk in and check out for yourself.
