We stopped by and discovered rates had just gone to off-season. What an elegant lodge consisting of condos with full kitchen and laundry amenities, and stunning decor! We loved our stay and our view of those turquoise waters of Traverse Bay!

This is by far the nicest hotel I've stayed at in traverse city!! The view is unreal and the amenities are even better! We were 2 couple and stayed in the penthouse King suite. It was pricey but worth it! Location is great and close to downtown. It rained one night and we ended up staying in and cooking dinner... More

Absolutely loved almost everything about our stay. From the moment we walked toward the entrance we knew we would like it. The location is very well taken care of - I thought it was new - it's about 10 years old. We loved the atmosphere and decor. Our room was wonderful! Spotlessly clean. Stayed in a one bedroom with full... More

The view from our room was breath taking even with a severe storm one night., which provided quite a lighting show to view from our balcony, and from indoors. Campfires on the beach at night with s'mores, and movie time with popcorn (we just got bags of popcorn and took it back to our room. After a day of sight... More

I can't say nicer things about this hotel! My husband and I stayed in the Acorn room on the second floor, and don't let the "medium bedroom" label fool you- we had a beautiful view of the water, a gas fireplace, a full kitchen, a washer/dryer, a huge bathroom, and more. The kitchen was especially well appointed, down to the... More

I absolutely love coming to Tamarack Lodge and traverse city for the great accommodations and all the fun things to do in the area. The view of the bay is amazing and constantly changing. Meanwhile, the Tart trail is practically right outside to provide a family friendly option to get around without driving. There are so many wineries, breweries, art... More

We came for a long weekend with my brother and sister-in-law. The Douglas Fir 2 bedroom condo was HUGE! We enjoyed cooking our meals in the gourmet kitchen and eating with a view of the lake from our table. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Desk and housekeeping services were excellent. We enjoyed the fresh chocolate chip cookies. Would... More
