“Loved our stay!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

A very clean and nice hotel, with comfortable beds and a view of the lake. Good service, a comfortable lounge area and a very good breakfast included. Good location in town and good value.
We would definitely return.

We choose the cherry tree inn for our honeymoon and had the most wonderful time!! Everything was perfect and we can't wait to go back!! Any negative review for this hotel is just people looking for something to complain about because the rooms and bed were great! The living area with the fireplace and balcony was our favorite room! We never wanted to leave! The breakfast was good and they had coffee brewing at all times! Can't wait for our anniversary next year!!!!

My husband and I was recommended to try the Cherry Tree and we are glad we did. Our had a balcony on the third floor right off the beach. Very clean room and comfortable. I did not want to leave the room except to go to the beach and do some shopping. The hotel offers a lot and the staff is very helpful. We have been trying to get back to this hotel, but every weekend we have tried to make reservations has been booked. I have looked as far ahead as February and cannot get a room. We wanted to spend our anniversary up there again. I even called the hotel directly, thinking maybe there was a glitch with the website, but they said they booked up. Shame. We will keep trying since my husband wants to stay here again. We had received a great deal for our room.

Room Tip: Rooms right off the beach were wonderful. You can watch the sunset from your room.

We had a group that stayed 2 nights in late October. We were going wine tasting and the staff helped us organize that too. Cherry Tree is a great place to stay. We had bay-view rooms with 2 queen beds and a small kitchenette. The rooms were wonderful. The staff was extremely helpful and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room with a view of the bay.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Inn. I saw the two and a half stars, and my expectations immediately lowered. This was my first attempt to use trip advisor to book a hotel.
Our suite was a one bedroom with a small kitchen, and a large living room with a pull-out bed. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate and the dining area is clean and neat. The view of the bay from the balcony was perfect.

Room Tip: The website helps with a very clear description of the rooms and suites.

Green Features: This establishment is so green, the shower uses almost no water at all!

Good evening!

Thank you so much for your review and your stay. I'm glad that we exceeded your expectations. The star ratings can be confusing. They aren't based on quality - they are based on amenities offered. We are more along a 3 star property because of our food options (not a full restaurant, but we do have a 24-hour Sweet Shoppe and in the summer, we have a poolside grille), but the ratings can be tough to understand. Just remember they are based on amenities offered (pools, rooms, restaurants, valet parking, etc.).

I'm happy our Tripadvisor listing helped you and that you are helping future guests. Have a nice fall and do come visit again.

Best,

Jonathan P.

Staff were very helpful from reservation thru check out. The room was on the top floor, & overlooking the bay - so quiet and i'm sure with better weather, a beautiful view. The Jacuzzi tub in the room was a bonus...we didn't even use the pool. It is a small indoor pool, with an adjoining hot tub, but it has windows into the breakfast room. So, if you are eating breakfast on that side of the room, you watch the pool action. The outdoor pool was closed for the season, but looked great & nice beach access as well. The breakfast was fantastic. Great value as it was included in the room price. Make your own waffles and another hot choice as well as cold cereals, fruit, yogurt, pastries etc. The cherry coffee was delicious and available all day in the lobby. Nice touch. The amenities in the room were perfect for us, although no idea how play the free playstation that sat there! The drive to downtown was considerable, although there was a shuttle offered to the state Theatre and maybe the casino ... The place was very busy, even midweek, off season. They had maps of Sleeping Bear dunes trails for us and recommended places to eat as well. We were very pleased with our choice to stay here.

Room Tip: Definitely go for the bay view. Otherwise you look over the street. We loved the Jacuzzi tub in the...

Green Features: The "bee choice' toiletries were lovely. Leaving the sheets for 2 nights is smart too!

We had the great pleasure of sharing a very special night with Cherry Tree Inn and staff.
Should we be fortunate to make to our 50th anniversary. I have no doubts, about where we would be staying. The staff and rooms for our parties were perfect. There was nothing that my wife and I would have changed or wanted and that was the same with the other room we also had for our other quest. The breakfast was great. Both rooms had great views of the bay and sunset. The bed was very comfortable and the fireplace just made the night. This is a winner.
