Price was reasonable considering the weekend we stayed was supposed to be peak for the fall color season and still much less than other area options and the nearby Traverse City price gouging hotels. I would absolutely stay here again.

Very nice place, fridge and microwave, A/C and FAST heat! Park-like grounds. Very reasonable rates for the location.
Located in the heart of the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Country!
