Last minute accommodations and we very happy with our choice! We stayed in a unit with a large one bedroom one bath with living room and kichen. The bay view was perfect. We used the fireplace at night and sat on our deck with coffee (and blankets) in the morning. Quiet and peaceful. We will stay here again, but only...

Every time we come to Tamarack Lodge it is like coming home. The staff is fantastic and every comfort we could want is here. Great kitchen, washer/dryer. Room is so cozy and extremely quiet. We spent a week here in January and enjoyed the star gazing from the patio. Great location to see all the Northern Michigan has to offer...

This was a great weekend! Absolutely LOVED the Tamarack Lodge! The staff is excellent, the rooms are gorgeous and so clean! The views are unmatchable. We visited in the winter and loved the fireplace in the room. I could've stayed weeks here. Can't wait to return.

What a wonderful place to stay. We were blessed with perfect weather, so we got lucky this late in the year. In regards to the lodge, you can't beat the views and the rooms. We shared a bedroom with our friends and had a really enjoyable time. Place was beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely be...

This was a fantastic vacation for just the two of us! The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The master bedroom was clean and inviting with a fabulous en suite bathroom. We loved sitting in front of the fireplace overlooking the silent wintery bay. It was very peaceful and romantic. Thank you.

The front desk staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the "happenings" in town. The hotel was very clean and smelled great! Our room had a beautiful view of the water. We had a three room suite with a shared living room and kitchen. It was $600.00 for the night shared between three couples! Well worth the price. Th only...

We returned for a rather quiet fall week. Friends joined us for a few day. As always the staff was friendly and helpful. They make us feel like part of the family. We met other interesting guests at the Saturday breakfast and the wine tasting. We agreed with the person who commentated that they couldn't believe that the place was...
