This is the third experience I have had at Tamarack and each time the experience beats the one before. This lodge is impeccable, located on the Bay with the best service you will ever find. The Front Desk, housekeeping, maintenance truly live to serve and do it well. The accommodations are great with full kitchens, one two or three bedrooms... More

August 2015 was my second time at Tamarack Lodge with 6 girlfriends. We stayed in the 3 bedroom suite with a full kitchen and three bathrooms. Everything was very clean and updated. One downfall is they do not have a swimming pool. However, there is volleyball, sand games, fire pit, a dock, and boat rentals! They have a snack place... More

First of all, the staff was the best part of our stay! They were ALL absolutely wonderful people, genuinely kind and social. Now here comes the bad part... 1) Furnace/AC was running pretty non stop and the closet it was in shared a wall with the bedroom. Very noisy! 2) We are on the 1st floor and when the people... More

We circled Lake Michigan recently and without question, the Tamarack Lodge was everyone's favorite stay. Beautiful, well maintained, friendly, great location - spacious - everything you could hope for in a vacation stay. And s'more kits at the campfire. Can't wait to get back..

We had the Acorn room (101) and it had a nice little patio outside. The beach is really well kept here. It's not large but it's private and had plenty of room for the amount of people. The room has that up north feel but it's all new and modern and clean. This place feels brand new yet it's 10... More

Tamarack Lodge did not disappoint. We stayed in a 3-bedroom suite to accomodate our small children. The room was immaculate and decorations lovely. The view was amazing. Staff were very friendly. I highly recommend this property.

We were there just for one night so we could not enjoy the beach or the view fully, but is definitely a place where we would like to come back to. People at the reception were friendly but didn´t seem to have much of a clue in terms of dinner not breakfast recommendations!

We have been going to the Tamarack Lodge for about 5 years. From the very beginning we loved every moment there. We have gone during each season and it was great every time. We love the location, the boat and jet ski rental next to the property, the condos, and the staff. We appreciate all the memories we have over... More

After a very stressful couple of weeks, we decided to take a weekend away and discovered the Tamarack lodge. What a find it was!! Well equipped with a full well equipped kitchen, fireplace, and an extremely comfortable King size bed. Did I mention the awesome views?? Right on the bay, just wonderful! We loved it so much we rebooked another... More

We happened to find this when looking for an up north quick vacation. LOVED IT! Beautiful unit. Top notch in every way. Loved the space, fabulous tub, great views...top notch furnishings, appliances etc. If you are looking for all the benefits that a condo space offers, it is here. There are only 26 units, so don't expect any restaurants, lounges... More
