My wife and I were visiting our friends who have a cabin in Newaygo and we wanted a place to stay. We were fortunate to stay here since a lot of the places in the area were booked. We were glad that we were able to stay here. We would recommend staying here. They have free banana splits at night... More

Great bed and breakfast. Great place to get away for the weekend or just a night. You can get a room with a hot tub and/or fireplace. Each room looks like a log cabin. The food is very delicious. Free banana splits at night.

Website didn't do it justice. Beautiful, peaceful spot. Lovely buildings and landscaping. We had a room in Livery East and were really impressed. Owner was very professional and could tell he really wanted his visitors to enjoy their stay. He and his wife are an older couple, and you could tell through the ambiance that they really have tried to... More

My wife and another couple share a short anniversary getaway and could not have been more happy with our short stay at The Shack. The cottage / cabin feel was a nice change of pace and our rooms were clean and well kept. We enjoyed a walk on the trail, the spacious room with a fireplace and a place for... More

The Shack is set in a beautiful area on a small lake. It has a very "lodge" atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The dinner that comes with the price of your stay was ok, as well as the breakfast buffet. The best part of the Shack is the beautiful view from the back porch area, out toward the lake. We... More

Staff was very accommodating. Party of 50 came in, and all were treated as individuals. Buffet was simple but good. Quiet area that has many benches tucked away to sit and watch the scenery.

What great potential this place has for a wonderful getaway! A lake, a great pitch, a rustic building and banana splits! The grounds are spectacular. There's a museum, a sugar shack and many beautiful outbuildings that are well Maintained. You could spend hours just watching the water skiers and boaters. Unfortunately, there are areas that need attention: *Rooms in the... More
