“Terrific Place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was a really great place, especially with kids. It looks like all the rooms have a view of Lake Huron, and the complex has a very large lawn that goes down to the shore. It's not a beach, but the kids had a lot of fun wading in the lake. The lawn is big enough for several families to play football, frisbee etc and not run into each other. They've got a campfire with marshmallows every night. There's an indoor and outdoor pool. The outdoor pool was large with a variety of depths. Both have hot tubs attached. You do have to leave the building of your room to get to either pool or to the breakfast.
Breakfast was a buffet with make your own waffles, eggs, sausage, breads, cereal, juice.
The rooms were large, with mini-fridge, coffee pot, good showers. The decor was plain but everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room had a balcony, and it looked like most of the other rooms did too.
There are lots of restaurants nearby. the fish shack across the street has good smoked whitefish. I saw a shuttle bus from Sheplers Ferry to Mackinac Island in the hotel parking lot.
The staff was very friendly and very helpful. All around, we were very pleased,

The property is wonderfully managed and maintained. The room was one of the cleanest I've ever stayed in. We loved the outdoor pool, walking to the shore, nearby restaurants and shops. The location was great! We opted for the larger size room and it was worth the small difference in price. We had so much room for our family.

Ok I will try to be succinct.

I stayed here from 3 nights and this is what I liked

1. Very friendly staff
2. Very clean
3. Very nice lake side location and view
4. If you have young kids they will have a blast. They is a play ground beside the lake - just don't forget a soccer ball or badminton rackets.
5. Sunrise is awesome - grab your morning coffee and sit in the balcony to watch the sun come up the horizon.

This is what I did not like:

1. May be it just me but I think breakfast room is way crowded all the time. First day we went at 9 Am and I saw streams of people walking towards the breakfast from all the building. Next 2 days, we woke up early and hit it at 7:30. Still there were lots many but not as crowded.

Room Tip: reach the breakfast place between 7 to 7:30 AM if you do not like it too crowded.

Excellent location, beautiful view, great value, really friendly staff, and super clean rooms! This is a great place to stay with a family. Located right on Lake Huron just minutes from the Mackinac ferries. The view is amazing! 2 pools - one indoors and one out. The outside pool is very large and has a view of the lake. There is a really nice playscape and swing set, and lots of grass for kids to run and play. In the summer weather permitting there is a bonfire each evening, and the hotel provides marshmallows to roast! The rooms aren't fancy, but they are super clean. Ours was on the 3rd floor, with a private balcony with two chairs so we could enjoy our view. All of the people we encountered working at the hotel were very friendly, especially at the front desk - they are very helpful telling you about the area, and you can even buy discounted Mackinac ferry and attraction tickets. We would stay here again for sure!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Huron Building, and 2nd or 3rd floor rooms have the best view of the lake.

The property is always in tip top shape. It is obvious the management keeps making improvements. Two pools indoor and outdoor, nice daily breakfast included. The best part is the friendly management and housekeeping staff. They made my visit GREAT!

It is a wonderful resort on Lake Huron! The beautifully situated resort on Lake Huron completes any Great Lakes vacation. We stayed in the Ontario building(relatively new) and was not disappointed. Our room was about 40 feet from the water and thoroughly enjoyed the view. The room was spacious and clean. There was also a balcony that was spacious and enhanced the experience during our visit. Not only was the room great, but also the quiet nature of the resort. Another added amenity was the nightly bonfire. There is plenty to do at the resort and surrounding area.
