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

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

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
