My wife and I recently spent a night at Chamberlin's Ole Forest Inn during the heat wave that reached all the way to the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan. When we arrived, I noticed some box fans in the windows and my heart sank. It was in the low 90's with almost 90% humidity and no breeze. Sure enough, when we checked in we discovered that not only do the rooms not have air conditioning, the restaurant and bar also do not. Now, I understand that this is the UP and it normally does not get this hot, but it is unforgivable, in my opinion, for a place that charges over $100 a night for a room to not have air conditioning. Our room also faced the parking lot and with the windows open (a necessity in the heat), we got cigarette smoke from the kitchen staff hanging out below our room and bright light from the parking lot all night long. With that said, we made the best of it, partly by going for drives in the car with the air conditioning on, taking cold showers, and filling up the hot tub with cold water and soaking in it.
On the positive side, the Inn is charming, the view of Manistique Lake is unforgettable, the food was incredible, (we ate lunch, dinner and breakfast the next morning - all were top notch), the service was excellent, and they had live music. So, I guess what I'm saying is, we would have had a fantastic stay if the place was air conditioned. Without air conditioning, the stay was just okay.
