Stayed here on a short trip to the U.P. and happy to say we had a great experience. My wife and I had the eagle room, and our friend had the forest room. Both were clean, everything was in good repair (furnishings looked new), and the decor was just plain fun. There were nice touches in the room, and the bed was comfortable.
The very nice lady at check-in offered some great info about local restaurants and the ferry service. She was very thorough in explaining all the rules (I got the feeling she doesn't take guff from anyone), and we were pleased to learn that she doesn't tolerate unruliness from her guests. No smoking, no drugs, etc.
It's apparent that she reads and responds to reviews here on TA, so, if I may be so bold, I would suggest that housekeeping run a vacuum attachment over the ceiling vent in the bathroom of the eagle room as there was a layer of dust on it (it happens). I also found a few black hairs in the bed on the sheets, but given how clean everything was, I'm sure it landed there while making the bed....I have no doubt that the sheets were clean and had been changed since the last guest.
As far as locations go, it's ideal. It's just far enough from town that it's nice and quiet, and it's about a three minute walk to the lake. There's a small store right next door that sells breakfast sandwiches, snacks, etc., and it's just down the road from Castle Rock.
Overall, we had a very positive experience and would have no problem returning for another stay.
