Check out this 5 star review by Jack Turner: My brother and his family stayed in the lodge and the room was clean and fully equipped including full kitchen, we were all pleasantly surprised at the amenities which included coffee for the coffee maker. We stayed next door with our travel trailer and there was a restroom right there, very convenient. The bathroom was always clean. The shower was quarter driven, spend the extra quarter when your plugging the machine to make sure you don't run out of water or you have to start all over again at a whopping $.50. The owners couldn't possibly have been more pleasant and on top of hospitality. In fact it was almost unnerving how seriously they took their role as hosts in this day and age of crappy customer service. He hooked up my water before I even knew it and offered all sorts of help while I set-up. Come to find out he actually dumps your grey/black water for you, who does that? They delivered firewood no matter how much I protested that I could get it myself, had an ice cream social one evening and it goes on and on. I'm not sure I've ever experienced the type of customer service they didn't just strive for but fully achieved! They were busy little beavers going to and fro making sure everyone was taken care of and everything was in order.

Check out this 5 star review by Laura Ford: Loved the rustic hotel/motel! Carrie and Matt are the nicest hosts ever! We aren't ATV enthusiasts but they welcomed us just the same! :-) The hotel is roomy and very clean! There is a kitchenette with all of the necessities for cooking plus an excellent outdoor grill. They have great trails and camping sites as well! If you want a Northern Michigan woodsy experience- stay here for sure!
