motel is right on the beach as well as volleyball, shuffleboard, playground equipment and fire pit. Due to beach erosion, the grandkids couldn't go out as far as usual but that was fine. Beautiful views.

My husband and I stayed at the Sandcastle Beach Resort and so thoroughly enjoyed our stay that we kept extending it. Owned and managed by Tom and Stacey, they do an awesome job of ensuring a pleasant stay. Cabins are clean and updated with everything needed for our stay. We stayed at one of the smaller cabins since it was just me and my husband and were fortunate to get cabin #6 which is on the end with a fabulous view of Lake Huron. This is one of the smaller cabins - better for couples. The resort is family-friendly with many activities including shuffleboard, playground area, rafts, volleyball, basketball, fire pits. etc. Our room came with flat screen t.v., cable, small refrigerator, wi-fi, microwave, coffee pot. We will be going back!

We really enjoyed this easy going place. Room was basic but clean and reasonably up to date. A little small for 4, but for 2 nights was just what we needed. Beds comfortable. AC worked well. Nice beach. Kids loved the shuffleboard. We hope to go back.

We had a wonderful experience at Sandcastle Resort,this was our first visit under new management.The management was very efficient ,I didn't realize the unit #7 we booked did not have a kitchen.The management offered us to book our vacation on a later date when the kitchen was available.That was very thoughtful and helped us plan better we stayed in #7 .Very clean surroundings,comfortable bed,adequate grills,and chairs. It is very sad to see the impact of climate change on the beaches and rise in water level.We went after 10 years and most of the beach was gone.The management had to build a boardwalk to protect whatever is left. We hear about these changes but it was eye opening how everything is connected and impacts our life.

Thank you for staying with us and for your very nice review of our resort! While the Great Lakes are all experiencing record highs during this cyclical change, we anticipate a time when the lakes will retreat and provide as much beach as you remember 10 years ago.

We stayed for a long weekend in suites 7 and 9. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the beach is absolutely beautiful. Went with 4 boys and everyone enjoyed themselves. The owners are onsite but extremely friendly. I can't wait to go back
