The entire facility was beautiful in its rustic theme! We loved the log cabin atmosphere, very reminiscent of my family's cabin a few miles away, on Burt Lake, from my youth. Everything was clean and appealing in every way.

Such a terrific place to stay! The lodge and grounds are beautiful, and they have a nice pool, hot tub, fire pit, kayaks, canoe, and a paddle boat to use, plus a terrific loaded gameroom loft above the lobby (pool table, puzzles, family games, books, etc.) and hiking trails on the grounds. They do get quite wet, so be sure you are wearing hiking boots. You also might want bug spray since its on a river. They allow pets (call ahead) and have a laundry room if you need it. No restaurant on site, but the included breakfast was very good, and with covid they had employees serve to you. The gym was closed, of course because of covid. The rooms are lodge decorated, all face the river, and I believe they all have a balcony with a couple of chairs. It is very pleasant! The beds were comfortable, and had a variety of pillows to find your perfect one. The bathroom was clean, spacious, and very adequate with shampoo, conditioner, and body soap dispensers in the shower. They serve coffee all day from the front desk, but there is also a coffee maker in the room, as well as a nice sized refrigerator, iron and board, and hair dryer. I honestly can't remember if there was a microwave, though. The staff is very friendly and helpful if you need recommendations, and there are a variety of attraction brochures in the lobby. Overall, a very nice pleasant place to stay.

Pleased all around with our stay here, wished we had planned another night. Great lobby, great view, staff was very friendly. King suite was two separate rooms plus bathroom, had a balcony, overlooking creek. Amenities include free use of kayaks, paddle boats, canoe. We found a unique bridge up the creek that swings open to allow boaters to pass by. Hotel also has a fire pit that is lit every morning and evening and has plenty of outdoor seating with tables for eating the hot breakfast they serve. Out of the way but well worth the few extra minutes.
