Wedding arrangements seemed well organized and efficient. Nice landscaping for outdoor wedding. Dance floor extremely small . Employees friendly and available with good customer service. Hotel room in lodge for overnight guests. Room is big. Very clean. No coffee maker. Mattress was too big for box spring. Very uncomfortable for 2 in a queen bed. There are 3 stories no elevator. Quite a long climb with luggage. I felt bad for the elderly customers. Very pricey for the quality and comfort I would rather sleep in a camper.

No elevator and no ground floor rooms at this “resort”. Needed to share the balcony. No coffee makers in the rooms. Restaurant and food not available. Pop tarts were the complimentary breakfast. Redeeming factor was the hot tub!!

N966WJjuliej - Thank you for your feedback and for staying with us. Yes, we do not have an elevator in our lodge. However, we recently added 3 new, first floor King Rooms that are all ADA accessible. During the skis season, we have 4 different dining options that are open daily. In the spring, summer & fall, we do not have an open dining as we typically host wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners and other special events. We are glad you enjoyed the hot tub and hope you will visit again in the future.

Yearly upgrades on slopes, facilities and more. A great hidden gem. Always fun. Excellent staff. Super great ski instructors for all ages. Magic carpet on bunny hill cuts the learning curve in half for beginners. Excellent food. Large portions, cheap prices. Excellent all around resort. One of our favorites.

I timed the recent snow storm to allow me to ski Caberfae for the first time. Being from Ohio(with some small hills) I wanted longer runs with more vertical and less ice. The lake effect snows dropped about 18” of powder. Caberfae is a medium sized resort with 485’ of vertical drop and some decent runs. The lift operators were all very friendly, talkative, interactive and kept the lines moving! The lodge is ok, nothing special, and the bar has some tasty food at fair prices. Parking lot just next to the slopes so you don’t have to walk far. There is a lodge about 400’ from the lodge (it was full and didn’t stay there) but drove about 30 minutes from Cadillac on well maintained road.

Had a wonderful day skiing 11/17/2019, 12 days before Thanksgiving thanks to the Midwest Arctic Blast and more importantly Caberfae's Management decision to make snow and open a record early, Saturday November 16, 2019. Caberfae is a well run very family friendly small ski area 20 miles or so from Cadillac MI. 3 of their 4 lifts were operating with mostly great snow coverage. Family friendly by their encouragement of bring your own food. See below photos showing ample electrical outlets for crock pots or whatever you what to plug in. Free microwave too. Buy the way. The $99.00 Week End Season Pass keeps even large families able to afford to ski. Can't beat that with a stick. See pictures below Also see photos of menus for those who opt to buy their lunch. NOT gouging prices like most ski areas.

Good place to enjoy if you wish to ski. Resort is nice, restaurant is good too. Nice place to relax for a night if you are not into skiing. About an hour drive from Ottawa. Resort has a family room with all amenities. CarryIng a space heater is a good idea if you are visiting in January or February.

Turned me away despite a confirmed and fully paid reservation. Stuck outside in the cold at 10pm faced with hazardous road conditions to reach alternative accommodation. Rude staff with not so much as an apology for their stuff up. Didn't seem to think they had done anything wrong and were totally unhelpful, they were defensive to the point of accusing me of being in the wrong!

I have not been to Caberfae in about a decade so this was my first time in a little while. I was with a group of more than 50. They were pretty efficient and helpful. We got a cheaper rate by going after lunch. I had my own items so I did not have to rent "gear." I was on the slopes in about 10 minutes. I enjoyed the slopes.

We drove in at night and the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. While the hotel has been remodeled some it is still pretty primitive. No elevators for our bags up to the 3rd floor and no phone in the room. You could hear everything in the hallway in the room. The first night they had a wedding and guest were loud and obnoxious in the hallway at 1:30 AM. No breakfast included and nowhere to eat anywhere close. The room was OK but sparse.

Yes, that is correct. We are in the middle of the Manistee National Forest. It is a beautiful setting and we are approximately 15 miles west of Cadillac. We just added three new 1st floor King rooms this fall. Thanks for visiting.

This hotel is very outdated and dirty. There were stains on the sofa and the furniture was all crumbly and broken on the bottoms as if there had been a flood at some point, but since the room is on the second floor I doubt that. When booking this room no where did it say that there is no elevator however but I received the confirmation it said there wasn't an elevator and all the rooms are on the second and third floor. At this point the room was non-refundable so thankfully I had someone with me who could carry our heavy luggage up the stairs. The first thing I noticed was the odor in the hallways. When we arrived at our room it wasn't much better. The room lacks the basic common hotel (let alone resort) amenities such as an in-room phone, coffee maker, refrigerator and toiletries. The windows do not open to allow for fresh air either which would have been nice with the smell. The toilet was child-sized in height and for someone with a bad knee was quite a problem. When booking this hotel it said there was a restaurant on site which was great amenity considering that there is not much else around in that area. We went to go down to dinner and were shocked to learn that there was only one option which was a hamburger bar with pre-cooked patties in a pan and a few cold sides. Yes, even the french fries in the warmer were not warm. Add to it that they charge $13 a person for food that is equivalent to a school cafeteria and we were sadly disappointed (and hungry). I figured we would tough it out because we needed to sleep and get on the road in the morning. Well that was a problem as at 11:30 there were still people loudly making noise and having conversations in the hallway and while it would have been nice if I could have called the front desk with the lack of in room phone and cell service compiled with the spotty Wi-Fi that wasn't possible. Finally the noise quieted down but unfortunately the doors do not fit properly and there's a 3/4 of an inch Gap all the way around which lets in light from the hallway. I am not a person who sleeps with a night-light to this was very distracting and prevented me from getting more than 3 hours of sleep. While I laid awake not able to sleep I noticed that there were no smoke detectors or fire suppression measures in the room. Eventually I decided to shower so we could get on the road as early as possible. It took 15 minutes for the water in the shower to get warm and the water pressure was so low, but at this point I didn't expect anything less. As we were leaving I noticed the other Hotel guests that were there for golfing taking coolers of alcohol back to their cars out of their rooms. I can't say I've ever stayed in the hotel where so many people bring in coolers like that.... While I understand this place is great for skiing, please don't expect much out of your stay, at least if you go in the summer. To call this place and Resort is laughable. The cost was definitely not worth the price of the room. We will never be back and I will caution everyone I know against going to this "resort."
