My wife and I stayed here May 8, 2017 as part of our trip to go to Magee Marsh for birdwatching. It is about 45 minutes away from Magee Marsh but we have enjoyed staying here several times in the past, both for the set up of the resort and the food. We booked through Trip Advisor which ended up...

First, the positive. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the housekeeping staff. The food at Salmon Run was excellent but the service was so slow we avoided it after one meal. The furnishings are not only dated but threadbare, crushed cushions, and generally uncomfortable. The beds in the room were without a doubt the most uncomfortable I've ever attempted...

My daughter and I were in Huron for a National dog show, so of course we weren’t looking for “The Ritz” in accommodations. This facility is super dog friendly, which always trumps almost everything when we are traveling with our dogs. It’s easy to overlook the little bit worn and dated aspect of the rooms with such beautiful and extensive...

Thank you so much for your review. We loved having the dog show here and we hope that you will return! Thank you again for taking the time out of your day to review our property.

This resort reminds me of being in a Hallmark Christmas movie!!! The grounds and lodge were beautiful....the fireplaces and comfortable seating areas were a great place to sit , relax and read a book. The staff were always available to assist and help make our stay so welcoming!

Stayed at the resort for a recent church conference. They handled our crowd very well and still attended to our needs. They even mailed my pillow to me as I had left it behind! Thanks to Diana Beaver and Scott Lilli, housekeeping staff!

The hotel location was good for the wedding venue. A shuttle took us to/from the reception. The rooms were clean. The beds are in desperate need of being replaced. There was a bar with entertainment. We were told the band would play until 1AM but they quit at 12:30 AM even though we had a large group that were buying...

Thank you for the review. We're glad you were able to enjoy the wedding and then the live entertainment here in Black Bear Saloon. I'm not sure why the band stopped playing early, but they should have played until their scheduled time. I'm sorry you found the hallways too dark, but we do have sconces along the hallway walls to...

Older resort showing some wear. Good location. Our room was not very clean - toothpick, gum wrappers, and coins on the floor. Pool was nice - 9' deep and large. Other amenities were closed during our stay, which was during the off-season. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

We opted to stay here rather than Sandusky for a change of pace even though it was more expensive. Not sure it was worth it. The resort was beautiful. The person at the front desk was very nice and personable. She informed us that the restaurant served until 9. However at 8:45 we went to the dining area for dinner...

Thank you for the feedback on your recent stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the grounds & breakfast, but sorry to hear about your dinner experience at Salmon Run. Our off season Salmon Run dinner hours are posted as 5p-9p on Friday & Saturday, but if there aren't any patrons they do sometimes close a bit earlier. The Black Bear Saloon,...

My family stayed at the Sawmill for the second year in a row for the cheer competition at the water park resort down the road. The value of what you get here is much better especially if you don't have the time to go to the water park anyway. Our family usually stays in chains where we can get points...

Never been there before and if I was there in season the amenities look great. Golf course, pool, harbor/docking, etc. There was an adjoining expo center with attached meeting/dining area, great for business shows. If there was one down side was overly impressed with one meal I had.
