We had never heard of this place but thought we would give it a try. Stayed in the cabins in the back forty. They were ok nothing fancy. The beds were not comfortable and the maintenance crew started working on the cabin behind us at 7 am. The food at the main building was good but overpriced. The water park... More

Very nice course.Just reviewing this because I could not send my question to them without filling out this form. I think this is stupid but I had to do a 200 character review even though I did not play the course recently.

Shawn, I greatly appreciate you bringing the issues you had with your cabin to my attention. What you experienced is not customary for us and it does not meet the expectations we have set for our establishment. While the initial cabin you had been placed in did have a delay in the delivery of keys, I do wish you had... More

At $70 per day for camping and such a large hotel/hospitality property that is family focused, I was expecting a bit more from the service and property there. The campground was filthy, worse than usual. I've camped on that side of the state and expect it to be sandy, but between the gravel and sand and little management of either,... More

I am so frustrated. We are staying for two nights. The room was quite pricey for the stay. Then there is a 10% resort fee that is added to the price of your room. In our case, approximately $50. We have to pay to use the resort at $300 per night they? They told me they could accommodate gluten free... More

I love the concept of JJ but a lot of buildings were closed and you have to travel to many of the amenities. It's great for young kids and just ok for pre-teens/teens. We stayed 2 nights in a cabin during the week. The cabin smelled musty and I doubt the carpets have ever been cleaned. It was well stocked... More

We apologize for any confusion regarding reservations during the weekend of June 25th – June 29th. Unfortunately during these dates our entire property was rented out to the promoters of the Electric Forest Festival. As such our reservations system is unable to process reservations requests during these dates. All reservations and tickets for the festival are handled through the Electric... More

My wife and I were driving up from Georgia and discovered the "JJ Ranch" purely out of desire for something different. We were on our way to Charlevoix, MI and herd about the "JJ" and said what the heck, let's check it out. It wasn't what I expected, it was more. We had a great time. We had to go... More

Nice and remote location outside busy town schedule which is nice. Good for one day stay nothing more to do than that. Staff was too mechanical - when I informed them I will be checking out a day before the planned date, they just completed the formalities w/o even asking for the reason. Not much food options either - expensive... More
