This lodge is near our daughters family who just moved to the White Cloud area. We had a room in the Livery West location of the resort over a very mild Christmas week in Michigan and found the Shack to be excellent! Our room was King single with Jacuzzi tub and an electric fireplace and appeared very new. With storms... More

We stayed for my husband's birthday celebration. We were greeted upon check-in by one of the owners who warmly greeted us, showed us on a map where our room was located, assigned our dinner time (asking will that work for you), told us about the banana split time, breakfast time and told us he was glad we had come. Our... More

This was the third time I've stayed at The Shack. The first time was a couple years ago with my husband for my birthday in August, the second time was this past May with a best friend and my mom (to celebrate mom's birthday) and this time was with my husband so we could enjoy one of their hot tub/fireplace...

I don't want to mislead in any way. Our overall stay was good. But we probably will not return. Nice lodge/dining area. Many sitting rooms located throughout the facility. Many newly created rooms. Very nice grounds. Much to see. We were there for a marriage retreat with our fellowship. It just didn't leave an impression that we will ever be... More

My partner and I came here for a weekend getaway just to relax. We were greeted by a very unfriendly woman up front. We are definitely Christian people, but we were stared at every time we came in to eat or get ice cream because we dont dress or act as religious as they do. We ended up not staying... More

Absolutely amazing place - especially if you are looking to truly relax and rejuvenate. Quiet setting, on a beautiful lake, walking trails around. Grounds, lodging, rooms, facilities all wonderful. We stayed in a fire place room in the Livery, everything well thought out. Tables to use, gathering spaces for groups, games, pool table, ping pong and shuffleboard courts inside then... More

I love going to The Shack Bed and Breakfast. Marv and Janette make us feel like we are part of their family. The grounds, gardens and buildings are beautiful. I love to sit, and relax on the lake. I come with my sister’s family, and the time always seems to go to fast. The past two years we started coming... More

We stayed at this inn while on a business trip over the week-end. It's so peaceful here and beautiful especially in the fall. Actually quite nice any time of the year. The premises are set along a wooded area quite large with a nice walking path through a quiet woods. It borders a lake. All buildings are log cabin type... More

What a beautiful location! You are well out in the country so don't rely on GPS to get you there. Everything is rustic and beautiful. The food is good not great yet we are full all day long. The two bedroom suite with hottub and kitchen works well for our family. We bring our own kayaks and lawn games to... More
