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

Hello lisa31jane! Thank you very much for your kind words. It is always nice to hear from our guests about their stays with us. I hope you do have the opportunity to come back with your family sometime in the future. We have bigger two and three bedroom units to accommodate almost any size family. We would love to see...

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

We only got to stay one night. We had a penthouse Queen suite w/ lock off. 5th floor view of the bay. Private Jacuzzi in Suite bedroom. Full kitchen. Fireplace. Large balcony. Private beach. 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!

It all starts at the front desk, where you are greeted well, dealt with promptly, professionally, and in a most welcoming manner ( thanks to Brad and his staff) and it just gets better from there. We had a medium room on the fourth floor with a wonderful lake view, great balcony, fully equipped kitchen, nice living room area with... More

We ended up at the Tamarack Lodge for our anniversary weekend quite by mistake. However, we were completely thrilled with our stay, and could not have asked for a better weekend. We arrived early on Friday, still a couple of hours before check-in. However, our room was available then, and we were able to check right in. From the get-go,... More

This was a very nice resort. I'm usually exchanging from II into the Marriott or Sheraton resorts, Tamarack is right up there with them! The service was great, the place is beautiful, the rooms have great views and the decor is very nice. It is kid friendly with games in the rooms. The kitchen was stocked with all things needed...

This is the top of the line. Everything is new and beautiful. They serve hot cookies in the afternoon and there was a free wine/cheese evening when we were there. I was there with a group for a bachelorette party and it was a huge success. There were 9 of us in two different suites. One of the suites was... More
