Having stayed here a few times let me start by saying that a stay at the Pinestead Reef Resort is a unique and wonderful experience. From the staff who are fantastic, friendly and very knowledgeable, to the views from the units. It just does not get any better. The rates at this time of year are very affordable and even then I would be willing to pay top dollar for a room at this resort. I have read through the recent reviews and I'm not quite sure if the people who wrote the last review were actually staying at Pinestead? My experience (as a paying customer) was quite different. The furnishings are fresh and updated, very modern and new- they even smelled new!!! I spent some time talking with the desk girls and they informed me that they update the rooms on a rotating schedule every 5 years, and if something needs it they do it sooner. The unit we stayed in was updated recently and it was very lovely. The views are outstanding- even with ice on the bay. Traverse City is close by, within 3 miles of many activities and restaurants. I travelled- this was more of a stay-cation as we are from the area- with my 2 kids and my husband and we were very comfortable in our unit. The kitchen was clean and well supplied. Instead of eating out we ordered Pizza in so we could fully enjoy our time here. We spent the rest of the evening swimming in their large indoor heated pool (84 degrees is the norm there from what the maintenance man told us) It was very relaxing. Back to the unit, The flat screen TV's have High definition and WOW- what a difference. We did not get to watch much TV, but what we did see was very clear. The TV's are larger than your average hotel/motel as well. The DVD player was not used, but I could see that on a rainy day that would be a lovely perk. So to wrap this up, besides the busy highway out front (we could not hear it from our room) there is nothing I can complain about. The service, cleanliness, attention to detail, proximity to everything, information the staff has available etc. is top notch! Keep up the good work Pinestead, We will be back. As my 6 yr. old said one day is NOT enough!!! Hopefully the next time we come we can enjoy the outside areas like the grills on the deck and the beach. I will submit pictures when I get a chance.
