Excellent hotel, charming staff, great location, very comfortable rooms. Good meals. Large fun area for kids and adults alike. A pleasant bonus is ironed bed linen. Best of all is a very strict no noise after 11pm. What a pleasure that is. Have recommended the Lodge to our friends who all like as much as we do.

We had a room overlooking the adult pool. What we enjoyed is that there is an adult pool/hot tub in a separate area from the kids' pools so that if we wanted peace and quite there were no kids running around. The staff is great, Many remember us from previous visits.

Frankenmuth is a great place to visit. However, finding somewhere just as great to sleep makes it even better. The food is great, location perfect, people even better. You will enjoy your stay here, it is worth it.
