From the welcoming popcorn in the lobby to the nicely landscaped grounds and pleasant rooms, we really liked staying at the Crooked River Lodge. The website photos set up the expectation that the lodge is out in the woods when it is really beside the highway. Yet once you are on your balcony facing the river, you do feel like you are lost in the north woods. There are so many nice touches that add to the lodge experience: the paddle boats & kayaks, the wood swing, baby geese, and the fire pit. The breakfast is average and the inside decor is a little kitschy moose & fir tree themed which is easily overlooked because of the pleasant staff, convenient location, and river view. It is an easy drive into Petoskey or Harbor Springs for dinner.
