We stayed here to attend a wedding in Elberta. It is only 25 min from the Lake Michigan beaches. Lots of activities available. Family fun. Rooms are so nice. It is a ski resort but turns into family get-away in summer. Grounds are beautiful. Hope to come again to enjoy all the activities, golf, swimming, biking, etc.

I have golfed and skied here about 10 years ago and I remember it being a decent place then. They have really upgraded the resort to better accommodations and adding family activities. We went for 2 nights 3 days on a family package and stayed in Kinlochen. The condo was very nice and very spacious. Although I love golf that... More

Very nice staff. Lots of activities for all ages. Brought our dog and didn't have many restrictions and only a reasonable one time pet fee for entire length of stay. Had a good time. Only possible negative was it was difficult to find locations/activities at first. Could have used a phone list for front desk & golf clubhouse (for reservations)... More

This was our first stop of our Michigan/Wisconsin driving trip. Lovely area and researching it for future family vacation. Played Mountain Ridge golf course. Lovely, hilly and challenging. Only problem (and it's trivial) is no elevator in the building where our room was located. Otherwise, will return.

This is a first-rate resort. Skiing in winter, but we don't ski, there in summer. Two 18-hole golf courses, full spa, beautiful pool, alpine slide, well-supplied store and deli. Canoeing nearby. A bit out of the way, but well worth it!
