The rooms were fairly priced and very clean. It was a quiet facility for one that is so large. They have plenty of entertainment from paddle oats on the lake to shuffleboard and ping pong. Great meals are offered. On the other hand, the decoration is a little quirky. There is a museum on site that is almost never open...

We had a family party in Fremont and didn't want to drive 6 hours in one day! I am glad that we came upon this little piece of heaven. The.grounds are immaculately kept. The room was extremely clean and comfortable! We had a newer room in the Livery. It had tow log rocking chairs, fireplace, and heart shaped hot tub....

The Shack was a beautiful place to stay. Had a great time. Very relaxing, lots of places to just sit by the lake. Had one very minor incident, we came back from breakfast and ceiling was leaking really bad over the jacuzzi. Which could happen anywhere, it didn't make the stay any less enjoyable. Good was wonderful, really enjoyed the...

We stayed at The Shack last night for a church retreat and enjoyed our large, clean room and private group meeting room. The meal buffets meant that we didn't have to cook or bring in food, but the menu and time of service were limited. The big plus on the food service was the nightly banana split offering. Though there...

It's hidden in the trees, the staff is friendly and the rooms are very clean. We will definitely come back again during the season when there is more to do. Very impressive and reasonably priced. Great for a family reunion because there is a picnic area available.

The Shack is one of those places with a "down home" feel; the people are friendly, the atmosphere invites calm. We found this to be a great place for an overnight get-away. The best time to go is on Friday nights when the dinner is also included in the price. Of course, also included--any time--is the delicious banana split. You...

This lodge is near our daughters family who just moved to the White Cloud area. We had a room in the Livery West location of the resort over a very mild Christmas week in Michigan and found the Shack to be excellent! Our room was King single with Jacuzzi tub and an electric fireplace and appeared very new. With storms...

We stayed for my husband's birthday celebration. We were greeted upon check-in by one of the owners who warmly greeted us, showed us on a map where our room was located, assigned our dinner time (asking will that work for you), told us about the banana split time, breakfast time and told us he was glad we had come.

This was the third time I've stayed at The Shack.

I don't want to mislead in any way. Our overall stay was good. But we probably will not return. Nice lodge/dining area. Many sitting rooms located throughout the facility. Many newly created rooms. Very nice grounds. Much to see. We were there for a marriage retreat with our fellowship. It just didn't leave an impression that we will ever be...
