Thank you, Monica, for the wonderful weekend at Open Acres!
My husband, children and I have enjoyed the beautiful Lodge for 3 years now and love it. The suites are very nicely appointed with lots of space, kitchenettes, and clean linens - perfect for families! (My sister and her family and my parents also joined us. Now that it has become a tradition, we all look forward to our "time up north" every year.) We especially like having the Gathering Lodge for meals, games, and time together by the fire. (With children it is also nice to be able to get back to the separate suite for quiet time or naps. Lots of privacy.) The kitchen in the Gathering Lodge has EVERYTHING you would need and it is such a treat to be able to arrive with a bag of groceries and not have to eat out. Finally, I have to mention that the Lodge is located in a clearing within the Manistee National Forest - the drive to and from is glorious. A perfect spot.
We come to Open Acres to ski at Caberfae Peaks, snowshoe, and winter hike. Before finding the Lodge, we stayed in a variety of places which were far inferior and did not provide the flexibility of preparing our own meals or spending time together as a group. And, we can bring our dog - Perfection!
It was a pleasure working with Monica, as always, and we highly recommend Open Acres to anyone looking for a well maintained and beautiful retreat.

Owner's Response: I am always touched by the comments each of you place in the guest book left at the lodge as well as here online. To know that guests enjoy and appreciate what the lodge has to offer means a great deal to us. We enjoy the lodge as well but to have others respond in this manner makes it so much more worth it!!! Thank you!
