To name a few one would have to start with the cleanliness and... More

Every detail in house emotes pride and commitment to an excellent experience for guests. Fantastic location. My wife and I enjoyed our short... More

Spectacular as usual! We stayed in the Orchid Room, it was very lovely. Love that the location from the Manor to Lake Michigan is only two blocks away! We enjoyed the farm to table breakfast and the afternoon "Beach Break Snacks" as well, they were yummy.

North Beach and Packard Park are both two blocks away, one to the north and one to the south. Dyckman Beach, however, is directly across the street from the... More
