Sopped here back in September. This place is a little hidden and you might pass if going to fast down the 31! GREAT location. Best part is probably the location of this little gem. The place itself is great, but you are so close to everything without being caught in the middle of everything that it has to be mentioned!... More

Stayed a week here this summer 2015 with my wife, daughter, and 2yr old grandson. The 2 story cabin was not too big and a little awkward but worked just fine. The owners of this place keep a tight ship but thats fine. The indoor pool/spa were wonderful. Located right on the Betsie River this place is a fall Salmon... More

We had been traveling for a little bit and looking for a place to spend the night. We actually drove past and I told my husband that the sign indicated a vacancy. We went back to the resort and was greeted by a very nice person who indicated that none of the small cabins were available but a large one... More

Found ourselves without a room for the night and it was getting late. Did not find any available rooms for only one night in a "vacation town." We were thinking that we would have to drive quite a way to find accomodations. We spotted a small "resort" sign and desided to check it out. What we found was a delightful... More

We have been staying with Hanmer’s Riverside Resort for 25 years. We highly recommend this place to everyone. We love our spring vacations and really enjoy seeing all the yearly updates and this year was no different. The New WIFI works amazingly and we love all the new TV channels that are now available. New Screen doors provide more privacy... More

Amazing cabins right on the river, close to many attraction. All cabins right on the river, VERY clean, amazing Beds, everything you need is supplied in the Kitchen. We loved being able to save money by cooking meals at the cabin. You receive fresh towels daily, indoor hot tub and pool both were exceptionally clean and relaxing. The Staff were... More

Never had someone so rude before. Went to turn key in and was accused of not paying for 3 year old. Far from truth. Check out is at 10am and the pool open right before check so you don't have time to swim.

I was fortunate enough to be invited 15 years ago for a fall fishing trip and have been coming back every year since. The cabins are always very clean, the spa is one of the best i've been in and we have always been treated like family( the kind of family you enjoy seeing) The accomodations for fishing are top...

My family has gone to Hanmer's 3 rears in a row. We meet with a large group of friends for an annual reunion. Though this reunion is in it's 37th year, we all agree that Hanmer's is our favorite spot to gather. The cabins are so clean; the beds really comfortable; the hosts, Barb and John, very accommodating! There is... More

Nice clean cabins in a variety of sizes from one room to two bedrooms. The place is on the Betsie River and About half have a great river view. Only negative is that there was quite a bit of road noise because it was right off a busy road. Nice pool. Only 7 miles from Lake Michigan.
