Pros: Quiet location in Lake Leelanau but not far from the more expensive destinations of Glen Arbor and Suttons Bay. Close to a grocery store in the village of Lake Leelanau. Affordable prices. Hotel rooms & private cottage options. Private beach. Fireplace, books & reading area on the first floor. Tennis courts & outdoor games. Free wifi. Very family-friendly.
Cons: The hotel rooms do not have a tv, a phone, or a bathroom (toilets & showers are shared by the entire floor). The shared restrooms were not cleaned frequently enough. The breakfast room is open only very briefly in the early morning (8-9am on Sundays). The rooms are dated (think 1920's).
Overall, if you're going for a no-frills spot to crash after a day of Leelanau Peninsula activities, this place is a good bargain.
