We stayed in the Manor House within the last month. When we called to make our reservation, the staff seemed incompetent and rude. I later realized that the Manor House is indeed run by the Restall (a run down ratty excuse of a hotel in Oscoda). I tried to call before our date of arrival to make sure that we were still "on". No one ever answered the phone! I tried calling four to five different times. Finally, the day of our arrival I did speak to someone in the house and told me that if I check in after 9:00pm that I would have to go to the Restall because her shift was ending. Seemed easy enough. When we arrived at the Restall, we were given a piece of paper that asked us to pick what we would like to have for breakfast...chose three main items. I was surprised to see that the choices haven't changed from a year ago!! If you stay for numerous nights...you have the same breakfast every single day.
When we arrived at the house, we were impressed with the location. The beach was beautiful. The rooms are tiny...our's cost $180 a night and we barely had any room to walk around. The rooms are also unbearably hot! I'm not sure if the a/c was working. It was 82 degrees in our room...we didn't want to use the hot tub or start the gas fireplace! The second night the weather was more bearable and we decided to use the hot tub..well...the hot tub was broken...it certainly needs some work. There were more neighbors the second night..which wasn't a problem, except when we all had to slam our doors to get them to close.
