We have wanted to stay at Tamarack Lodge in Traverse City for several years and decided to go in early March to take advantage of the cheap rates. Obviously, the optimal time to stay is in the Summer, but every season has its own beauty in Traverse City.
The location is fantastic. It is lakefront and just minutes from downtown. The view from the penthouse is gorgeous even when the lake is frozen. We stayed in the Junior Penthouse Suite. The quality is top notch. The finishes are luxurious. The suites are a nice mixture of rustic and contemporary. They have none of what I refer to as the Northern Michigan stark white, "old lady" look complete with wallpaper and poofy valances.
The houselcleaning was terrific. These are time shares and if you stay for several days, you will need to pack essentials such as detergent for the dishwasher and salt and pepper. Otherwise, the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pens and coking utensils.
I cannot give the resort five stars as there is no pool, spa, restaurant or gym. However, this is one of the nicest places to stay in the area. It is clean, modern,well maintained and nicely decorated. The best rates are on the off season and the high season in the Summer should be avoided if possible.
