This was our third stay at the Rockwell and it proved to be just what we needed, and more. The lodge is pristine; the most spacious and beautifully furnished room we've stayed in that hasn't been $500 per night. Gas fireplace, two writing desks, pretty full kitchen minus the range, and quietm with views. The manager and chef is top-rate....

We stayed in the main lodge - rooms were very comfortable and well laid out. The staff was very helpful and the food served was very good indeed. A great spot for relaxing in some comfort. The trails were well marked and enjoyable, with plenty of wildlife.

Our family, from 4 states gathered for an anniversary celebration (50 years). We are so grateful we found this lodge. The setting is beautiful, and peaceful and the lodge is lovely and cared for. The lake has only the lodge as a resident and there are trails around the lake that made for a beautiful hike. The food is excellent....

A group of us are bicycling across the US and found our way to the Rockwell Lake Lodge in Luther, MI. This is a very special place--on the grounds of an environmental preserve for Hillsdale College. But hardly rustic--this is a luxury lodge where we were pampered by Luanne our host and resident chef. For a reasonable price, Luanne prepared...

My wife and I were looking for a getaway in lower Michigan, as we wanted to take the SS Badger car Ferry across Lake Michigan from Manitowoc, Wi. to Ludington, Mi. and back again. We ended up spending 3 nights at the Rockwell Lake Lodge and used it as a pivot point to do day trips. The lodge and property...

We are just completing our second stay, after discovering this gem recently. Rockwell Lodge is a property of Hillsdale College. Small, immaculately appointed and situated on an idyllic lake, one can step into a bass boat, canoe, kayak, or paddleboat and instantly be in Michigan's finest of environments. There is nothing rustic about this beautifully appointed property, but it IS...

We had the most relaxed time in the lap of nature. The chirping birds, clear skies, twinkling stars and crisp air. It was just fantastic- words can't describe the serenity of the place. Lu Ann the lady in charge was extremely helpful, besides being a super Chef!!!! She cooked up a super delicious meal - she does need some advance...

A most serene and peaceful nature retreat hidden away from the bustle of commercialization. Hear the birds , walk the trails , soak in the sights of the lake and its surroundings in this small but luxurious setting . The rooms are large and super comfy and everything is maintained to a very high standard. Each of the 10 rooms...

The Rockwell Lake Lodge is set along the beautiful Rockwell Lake on a large tract of private and well cared for wooded land. The trails and views and peace and quiet are every reason to come back for a return visit. The cleanliness, comfort, spacious and thoughtfully designed suites, excellent dining and responsive hospitality are reasons to return soon.
