Beautiful lakefront rooms with small lanais and stunning views from the living area and master. Wonderful kitchenettes. We chose this type of room to entertain some visiting friends. We stayed almost a week and it truly is a luxury resort and popular wedding venue. But I might suggest that September be a better month to visit- after the kids are... More

Beautiful Resort and great location. Our 3 bedroom cottage's kitchen had one single egg size (4") fry pan, no lid. Not exactly the "fully equipped" kitchen we had hoped to make breakfast for 6. Also dining table in awkward space where door opened into, had only 4 chairs. There were no chairs even in the 3 bedrooms we could carry... More

Everybody is very friendly and the service is excellent. Our only real problem with the hotel was the breakfast buffet is way overpriced and the quality of the cooked food such as omelettes and eggs in the buffet is below average. Also the breakfast room seems to be understaffed and it's not unusual to wait for a table. Our second... More

This hotel is beautiful!!!! The rooms were wonderfully styled, comfortable, and had an awesome view. We enjoyed watching the sunset and walking out on to the beach. The staff was very friendly. The only downside to my stay was... there wasn't one! Would definitely return to this hotel again.

We had dinner on the patio, overlooking the water. The food, and service were excellent. A beautiful spot to enjoy a Michigan evening. I would highly recommend the halibut. Large portion of food and could be split between 2 people, but the fish was fantastic!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and truly enjoyed our stay. The view is just breathtaking. Staff was friendly and engaging in conversation and service. We were surprised with complementary bubbly and chocolate! The Breakfast Buffett was delicious. Very family friendly resort - we look forward to bringing our boys back.

I recently had the opportunity to stay here and have to say this place is beautiful. I wish I could say the same for the staff. Having stayed at many top resorts and hotels, it is fairly normal that the staff are well trained and treat the guest with respect, not here. It was as if we were imposing on... More

We apologize for not having a room ready when you arrived. We always are working to get our guests settled into their room when they arrive. Occasionally this is a challenge when checkouts run up to the final hour of checkout or the rooms require a bit more attention to prepare for the next guest. There is never a time... More

We stayed here for our babymoon and are so happy we did. The staff are all very welcoming and nice. We booked a balcony room, but only patio rooms were available. We really had our hearts set on a balcony, spoke to the front desk and they were able to move us to a beautiful larger room with panoramic views... More

First- the reservation process was a nightmare. I wanted 2 nights. I was finally able to get them by doing two seperate reservations. It turned out they were for different levels of rooms. Most hotels would have let us stay in the same room or at the very least moved our luggage from one to the other. We had to... More
