My family and I met another family here for a ski weekend (Feb 2016). There are four young children between the families and we wanted to introduce two of the kiddos to skiing. Enough background…we checked in (after what seemed like a very long drive to get to this location) only to be sent to a separate building away from... More

We were there for a wedding at the end of Oct. Our 1st impression as we walked up was its looks interesting. As we got into the lobby it was dark and looked liked something out of the 70's. We made it to our room and immediately noticed it was clean on the inside but the windows on the outside... More

I don't even know where to begin. Whatever I say in this post won't do justice to how special our day was, and so much of that was thanks to Holly and Melissa and the rest of the Devil's Head Resort staff. We were married at Devil's Head Resort on October 1, 2016. Holly and Melissa made our wedding so... More

This place is in a prime location. We came for a wedding in the fall, and there were 3 other wedding dances going on. One would think the amenities would be better. The heater in the room smelled like someone peed in it, the towels were hard and a few stained, tube tvs, and overall just outdated. The bathroom down... More

We reserved a room at Devil's Head Resort because my cousin and his wife held their wedding reception there. I requested early check in and was told I could definitely check in early. When I asked what time early check in is, the front desk clerk said "whenever you get here." We had planned to get ready for the wedding... More

We stayed 2 nights in one of the newer townhouse at Devil's Head, which was amazing.. New construction, comfortable bedding and furniture, overall very beautiful... Unfortunately, there was an obnoxious group in the townhouse next door that totally ruined our stay. The neighbors were noisy and had absolutely no consideration for any other guests in the complex. They had more... More

Let me begin by saying that the (2-star) rating is due to my overall experience the day I went, much to blame on Mother Nature for being nearly 60 degrees in Feb...I'll deal with Her later!

My husband and I stayed there for two nights, with our 6 yo son, and both nights we were kept awake till 3:30 am by the drunken (stoned?) crowds of college age kids.

just a quick Note to say I saw Dave at the golf show in Chicago. We have been bringing a group of golfers up to Devils head for 9 years. Our group has grown from 16 to 36 golfers.
