Recent guest reviews

I had read some bad reviews, so was prepared for the worse. There was pretty much nothing else available and this looked like a quaint place to stay. The room was large and incident free. Beds comfortable. Shower was very nice. Pool was closed for repair but kids enjoyed the playground (sorry anyone else staying there :) ) Room had a fridge. "breakfast" was continental.

Very friendly, accommodating staff. Very old, old smelling rooms. Couldn't be more basic. Bed was fairly comfortable though

This is located on the Tree of Tunnels north of Harbor Springs. The hotel is located in a beautiful place. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are older but keep clean. This is not fancy but the price was right and we enjoyed our three nights and four days there.

It was a motel in disrepair and needed a lot of updating as well. The two story building did not have an elevator. It had a series of steps leading up to the building without railings. The outside stairs were also unlevel making it a bit unsafe. The room was definitely rustic with holes in the hallway wall painted to look as if it was part of the rustic theme and accompanied by a few bugs as well. The most enjoyable part was that it was quiet because there were not many visitors and it was surrounded by a large luxurious horse farm with beautiful horses in the fields. The amenities were few. The cost was extremely overpriced. The website pictures were deceiving. I would not return to this motel if ever visiting the area again.
