The room/suite was huge ! Very large bedroom. Very large living room with balcony overlooking the golf course. Nice kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, dishes, etc. Separate rooms for shower and toilet/sink. A couple of minor maintenance issues - shower drain was very slow. Small puddle of water in front of the mini-fridge for no apparent reason. The golf course looked spectacular, but unfortunately, the rain didn't let up enough to play. On the last day, the sun came out but the backup for tee times was a couple of hours away. The elk tour and dinner were great. Lots of elk to see. The dinner and wine tasting was wonderful. We even had a crew from the TV Show 'Under The Radar' traveling with us filming for an episode. Thank you Thunder Bay for a very nice week.
So disappointed to see that these villas (that's villas, plural, not villa's, as they are incorrectly spelled on their website, but I digress...) These haven't been updated since they were built in the 1990s. Same furniture, fixtures, lighting, etc.,and everything felt and looked dirty. The restaurant had decent food, but they haven't updated anything in the restaurant in the past 30 years! So sad to see that the restaurant and lodging has suffered terribly over time. The kicker? As we got ready to settle in for the night, we spotted not one, but two bed bugs. We demanded a refund and headed to the Holiday Inn Express. Fortunately, the staff gave us a complete refund. Takeaway: Don't waste your time or money.
This was just so strange. The owner is so so nice, but it’s just all very old, dated, and tired. The elk we saw were behind a fence. They were interesting to see. I refused to use the shower it had so much mold around it. The beds were uncomfortable and there were terrible lines across the tiny tv screen. The coffee pot was dirty and gross. The food was really not good, there’s no place else around to get anything, and the wine that was served with dinner was so awful I almost spit it out. There was BudLite or Labatts for beer. There was a full bar but only the bottoms of two liters of pop to mix with. And then the sales pitch about the antler velvet supplement. Nutritional supplement sales right there during dinner. That was just kind of odd. It was fine if you are just really DYING to see an elk and you do t care about anything else. So sorry to be so unkind!…
What an amazing evening. Absolutely recommend to anyone looking for an informative and fun adventure. Was given as a gift to me and my husband and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was scrumptious and wine tasting was very good. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Staff is AWESOME!
Hidden gem in a remote Northeastern Michigan location. Sit back and relax on a horse drawn sleigh ride through the woods with a hot drink you can purchase prior to the start of the ride. As you travel through the woods, a knowledgeable staff member (we were lucky to have Jack) will talk about the Elk, other types of animals in the area and the history of the resort. Once you arrive to the cabin, you are wined and dined, the Chef (Spencer) and the staff will make you feel at home and ensure you have a excellent experience. The staff are professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. If you have a distance to travel, you can stay the night in a clean room with many amenities including cross-country skiing. This a event everyone needs to experience.
