“Fabulous surprise in Gladwin, Michigan!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We rented a two bedroom condo during a summer week at Riverwalk Place. The nightly rate was barely more than a hotel room in nearby West Branch, and Riverwalk is positively sumptuous compared to the Comfort Inn and Super 8 at West Branch. As far as I know Riverwalk is the only luxury accommodation in the whole of the Gladwin/West Branch area. And it fully met our expectations.

The condo we rented was a corner unit. When we got off the elevator, just outside the condo door in a large open area, was a community gathering room with comfy chairs and sofa- a great gathering place for a group on summer holiday. The condo was spaciously large, furnished in substantial traditional style. The furniture was of good quality, relatively new, and very nicely maintained. Televisions were located in the living area and in both bedrooms. There was a large table and chairs at the end of the living room, which we used for computers, maps, and organizing paperwork, as we were on a real estate search vacation.

The kitchen was fully furnished, with a large refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, dishes, pots & pans, and cooking and serving utensils. Kitchen cabinets and the solid surface countertops looked new and of high quality. Bathrooms were clean, bright, and felt new. A full size washer and dryer were located in a separate laundry room.

Bedroom linens were high quality, and bedrooms were very comfortable. Bathroom towels were large, fluffy, and high quality. Bedrooms and living area were carpeted, and the baths, laundry room, and kitchen had tile floors. The entire condo looked and felt fresh, and everything was clean and obviously cared for.

We were told we were staying in a condo which previously had been owned by a famous sports star - I cannot remember the name or the sport ! .... but the condo was outfitted in a superlative manner.

A large balcony off the living area was complete with a table and two chairs, overlooking the main street of town, and very nice for sitting out in the evening to watch the passing scene. The end section of a balcony off the master bedroom overlooked a beautifully manicured riverside area and gorgeous landscaped grounds with small pools of water. We sat there in the morning with coffee and newspapers, watching the birds and a bit of the river flowing by.

The feel of "coming home" to Riverwalk each day was very nice! The ground floor of the building contains beautifully stocked boutique and clothing stores - upscale but not expensive; and a comfortabe restaurant which had very good food. The second floor contains a real estate office, the Riverwalk owner's construction/architects office with a "front desk" area for condo rentals, and a beauty salon. Everyone we spoke with was friendly and informative when we asked questions about the area. Each time we had contact they were smiling, helpful, and accommodating.

The high quality physical accommodations, along with the friendly and helpful staff make this the number one choice when we need to say in or near Gladwin in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for an end unit, to get at least one balcony that overlooks the river as well as the main street...
