We have stayed at Stafford's many times in the past several years and have always had a wonderful visit. This week was no exception. The staff is friendly and helpful. We feel it is like "coming home."

The lodge is really a beautiful place. The excellent staff, I really can't say enough. When we stayed there, we used the boat launch and our brakes went out. Vickey Kasuske, the property manager, lent her car out so we were able to go get the parts and fix our vehicle. AMAZING. The lodge has really beautiful craftsmanship and is quiet. The property is BEAUTIFUL, nestled around Crooked River. Breakfast is included and Kayaks are available for use. I will be back, loved the stay.

the atmosphere is relaxing and pleasing to the eye. The staff was friendly, and the rooms were very clean. The morning breakfast was great also. It also has a great view and large backyard with canoes, and kayaks to use.

Great service and great property. Views are awesome of the river and very convenient to Boyne Highlands and Nubs Knob ski areas. Nice property with big rooms and very clean. Throughout this crazy year they are still serving breakfast. That alone makes for 5 stars.
