“A taste of heaven in Michigan's upper peninsula!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

We have now enjoyed two long weekends at Halfway Lake Resort. What a wonderful place to get away without having to "rough it." The cabins were spacious, clean and well-furnished with everything you'd need for a comfortable stay (whether it be short-term or extended). The private tree-lined lake offered a stunning view and a serene setting, with activities to do year-round (complimentary boating, kids playscape, campfire pit, gazebo with a hot-tub, horseshoe pits, accessible snowmobile tracks, sledding hill, and so much more). The owners were welcoming (yet not intrusive), and made us feel at home. Would highly recommend Halfway Lake Resort for family vacations / reunions, group retreats, or even a weekend getaway for two. We will most definitely be back again.

Room Tip: All of the suites are similarly furnished and equipped with the same amenities, but we enjoyed the l...

We had a wonderful time at this resort. The grandkids loved the fishing. The cabins were very clean and had plenty of room for the 6 of us.

Location is great. Very close to a lot of tourist destinations in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Halfway Lake Resort this past week! We stayed three nights in cabin #4 and really enjoyed our stay. They offer FREE kayaks, canoes, fishing boats and a gorgeous lake to enjoy them on. There are two-tracks/paths to go walking around the lake. The cabins are very clean and comfortable and well-kept. GREAT PLACE and we plan on going back!

We recently stayed at the resort for the first time, we will surely go back. We had a 2 bedroom cabin that was complete with kitchenette and fireplace. It was so romantic for our first vacation together with no kids. The tree's were just changing colors. We were close to several attractions like a bear ranch, the shipwreck museums, and Mackinaw island. We are going to go back to see the rest of the attractions that we missed. Unlike some places that you have to provide your own towels,pots and pans etc they provided us everything except the food. Are you looking for a romantic getaway without or without the kids this is the place for you.

Room Tip: We stayed in cabin 8 and was quite happy with it. There are some cabins that face the lake. Next tim...

My wife and I spent two nights here and we are looking forward to the time that we can return with our Grand Children.

Place was very clean, quiet and very relaxing.

Came north from South Carolina to see the fall colors. Was not disappointed. A small, friendly, well maintained cabin resort on a pretty private lake. Has Sat TV, hot tub, Wi-Fi, etc, so not as isolated as its location may imply. Host supplies towels and other sundry items. Surrounded by hundreds of square miles of national and state forests open to the public. Will be shifting north next fall from our usual LP cabin to Halfway Lake in the UP. Northern pike fishing and grouse hunting appear to be good - saw grouse even along the paved highways. Plenty to see on the two nearby Great Lake coasts and in Newberry - Oswald's Bear Ranch is a mile away. Would recommend it to families and to hunters and fishermen. Owners are pleasant and very helpful. Back in 2012 for a longer stay!

Myself and two grandkids had a unique and a "hands on " adventure in the UP of Mich this past summer. We stayed a week at the resort and wished we could have stayed more. My 12 yro and 8 yro couldn't wait to experience first hand kayaking and canoeing across the lake ,all the safety equip and boats were inc. Even though they had never tried this "new" sport they soon became quite good, I even went canoeing with grandaughter. Quiet and nature abound everywhere. With proper protection worn we had no issues with insects. Numerous humming birds hang out here. We went everywhere seeing the bears and I even was blessed to see a female moose crossing the road back to the resort , while driving back from "da so st marie". Had I been quick enough I'd be posting that picture. This was a fine place for my kids to be kids !
We were there in July a perfect time to be there...so exhausted from all the places we went
sleep came easy. It was a very affordable place to enjoy and still have money for all the attractions we went too....
Staying between the two Great Lakes enabled us to take different roads back nightly,seeing new scenry each trip. Many food choices were also avaiable. cook outs or at restaurants around places visited. The kids were also able to go horseback riding and even I got to ride !
The family operating the place was extremely helpful as too the lady ,she was an asset as to the many attractions located close by ,even offering short cuts to other attractions.
Linens and bedding supplies were furnished and when you needed more a simple walk to the "office" which by the way was open 24 x 7 was conviewnt too.
I guess if you don't go on yearly or any vaccations you could find fault with small simple things ..that aren't convient like at your house....
The weather was much cooler than the 3 didget numbers back at home....Warm during the day and cooler at night.And 2 box fans were provided,although some nights none were needed
I am sure we'll be back next year !
