Quaint Setting with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very nice, well equipped and extremely bright and breezy. I was pleased to see a Kourig single cup as well as a 5-cup drip coffee maker, beautiful dish ware, modern appliances, ice in the freezer, spring water in the fridge, toilet paper, soaps, and other very thoughtful and well placed comfort items. We stayed while several other families were in the condos below and across the hall, and we never heard a sound from any other condos. The Resort and Yacht Club is beautiful as well. It was like taking a step back into the 1920's vacation spots for the well to do family.

There was some remodeling going on that closed a few shops, however, we came for Lake Michigan, not the shops. Our 2 boys had great time in the game room playing videos, pinball and air hockey, they quickly learned that Dad was pretty good at this game. No Mercy. Our whole family played Shuffle Board for the first time, we played and laughed and tried to best each other for hours.

Overall it was exactly what we needed. A stress free, relaxing, non touristy resort stay. It helped that our host/owner was so friendly and made renting so painless. The condo had so many thoughtful touches that added to our enjoyable stay.

Thank you Joanne.

Your route to Beech Lodge #5 takes you along a winding, tree-lined, road with views of Portage Lake. A unique stop along the way is a roadside artesian spring that is used frequently by locals for the freshest drinking water ever. Stop for a quick fountain drink or fill a container.

The Little River Casino and Resort is only 15 minutes away. Try your luck or enjoy the buffet at The Willows or dinner at The Heron.

In nearby Manistee, a must see is the restored Ramsdell Theatre built in 1903. Besides the stage, with productions by local talent, there are art exhibits and a ballroom for wedding parties and other events. The Ramsdell Theatre is the home theater of actors James Earl Jones and Toni Trucks.

Another historical landmark in Manistee is the classic art deco themed Vogue movie theater built in 1938. The Vogue has been fully restored and is open for business, offering two state-of-the-art screens for first-run movies. Beautifully done.

Close by is Douglas Valley Organic Vineyard for wine tastings. Or, north to Traverse City takes you to wine country of Michigan where you can spend the day touring and tasting.
