With conditions constantly evolving during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working hard to have the proper sanitation protocols and policies in place to keep our staff and guests safe. Based on the CDC’s current guidelines, our employees have returned to wearing masks for their protection and that of our guests, fellow co-workers, and community. Please show them the kindness they deserve as they work to serve you and help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Guests that have been fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a mask during their visit. Join us in our effort to remain healthy so we can all continue to work, play, and relax confidently in our corner of Michigan.

We will update this information as plans change. For additional questions, please call our Reservations team at 231-534-6000.

Should you need additional towels or other amenities, please call the front desk and we will be happy to deliver the items and place them outside your door.
