Our room was very large had a nice table two chairs, two rocking chairs, TV, refrigerator, king size bed, full bathroom and jacuzzi tub in a cove beyond the bed. Very quiet and romantic. We had homemade banana splits at 8pm, offered in price made by owners and at 8am we had breakfast included in the price. Everyone was friendly....

We have been coming to the Shack for about 15 years. The first time we came, it was the first time in years that I could sit in a tub without our children knocking, saying, "Mom, Mom". Since then it is our choice over the other bed and breakfasts we have tried. Very peaceful, for sleeping, walks, for getting restored....

My wife and I were visiting our friends who have a cabin in Newaygo and we wanted a place to stay. We were fortunate to stay here since a lot of the places in the area were booked. We were glad that we were able to stay here. We would recommend staying here. They have free banana splits at night...

Great bed and breakfast. Great place to get away for the weekend or just a night. You can get a room with a hot tub and/or fireplace. Each room looks like a log cabin. The food is very delicious. Free banana splits at night.

Website didn't do it justice. Beautiful, peaceful spot. Lovely buildings and landscaping. We had a room in Livery East and were really impressed. Owner was very professional and could tell he really wanted his visitors to enjoy their stay. He and his wife are an older couple, and you could tell through the ambiance that they really have tried to...

My wife and another couple share a short anniversary getaway and could not have been more happy with our short stay at The Shack. The cottage / cabin feel was a nice change of pace and our rooms were clean and well kept. We enjoyed a walk on the trail, the spacious room with a fireplace and a place for...

The Shack is set in a beautiful area on a small lake. It has a very "lodge" atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The dinner that comes with the price of your stay was ok, as well as the breakfast buffet. The best part of the Shack is the beautiful view from the back porch area, out toward the lake. We...

Staff was very accommodating. Party of 50 came in, and all were treated as individuals. Buffet was simple but good. Quiet area that has many benches tucked away to sit and watch the scenery. The included banana plaits were a bonus, dipped by a guy that has been doing it for over 30 years. We were pleasantly surprised to get...
