This place is a hidden gem. I have been there before in the winter and the lodge is so pretty lit up. It is like a big log home with a beautiful fire place. This year was the first year I have been in the summer and let me tell you it was even better. Not only is the staff wonderful and friendly but helpful and they truly go out of their way. The landscaping and grounds is beautiful. I went with my kids and we had so much fun on the kayaks, paddle boats, fishing, feeding fish in the pond and going for walks on the nature trails. The pool is nice and clean, the rec room upstairs kept the kids busy at night after we had smores by the fire. The breakfast was great. My kids loved the little play room under the stairs. My daughter left a little ring that we bought in Petosky in the room and the same day I received a phone call that they were mailing it to me. I will defiantly be back!
