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.

My family and I stayed three nights at Tamarack Lodge. This was our first visit to this property and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, our room (we rented a one bedroom) was plenty big for our family of four, and the outdoor grill and patio was a perfect spot to meet up and cook-out... More

I have high expectations, roughing it to me is a Holiday Inn. Tamarack Lodge is always fantastic! All the little extras are included, wine/cheese reception, coney dogs, cookies, movie night, s'mores every night and etc. Management and staff are extremely friendly! Rooms are condos which are spacious and have all the amenities of home. Stay here you will not be... More

I stayed 5 fantastic nights in June at Tamarack Lodge. I was travelling solo, so only required a 1 bedroom apartment, the Acorn type, and was very thankful I had a higher floor as the views from the kitchen and lounge / balcony were fantastic. It was a very quiet apartment, well outfitted and modern but cozy. Great kitchen and... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights last month and really enjoyed the location by the lake, the beautiful architecture of the building and rooms. The only downsides that we discovered was the very tiny closet space in our room and barely enough walking space around the queen sized bed in the single bedroom. Room was very quiet... More

What more can I say? Truly one of the most beautiful rooms we have ever stayed in. If I return to Traverse City at any time... More

Stayed in 5th floor junior penthouse for five nights. Second stay in past year. All of the staff are friendly, helpful. Views are spectacular. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Wish the campfires with so mores were located differently as the smoke makes it impossible to sit on balconies and enjoy sunsets and the rooms fill with smoke. It is... More

I came across Tamarack Lodge whilst traveling across the USA and it is the best accommodation I have stayed in by far! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, the accommodation is Exquisite and so clean. I think I have found my new home away from home and I will look forward to returning.

We stayed in a 2 BDR for a quick weekend getaway. Beautiful resort - very comfortable and roomy for a family. It was so relaxing to sit near the fireplace and view the bay. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be returning for a stay!
