"It was our first family vacation in the U.P. and we stayed at this resort. The place was great, Les and Kristi made us feel right at home. The cabins were clean and very well kept, a great deal for the money. The only problem we had was that we only had one week to enjoy it! We are booking next year for sure, believe me when I say if you stay will be back." — Joe
