Kelly and Bud Chamberlin are the proprietors of this first class bed and breakfast located on a high bluff overlooking Big Manistique Lake. When weather permits, dining on the wrap around porch is a special treat. Fine dining can be a bit pricey but the food here is tasty and well prepared and served. You'll enjoy the honey butter and...

Can not believe there was such a good restaurant in a not too populated area. All the food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was especially good.

Whenever we go to Curtis on business this is a MUST STOP for lunch or dinner. A nice venue, old motel located overlooking one of the Manistique Lakes. Great views and picture op before, during, or after your meal. They have great appetizers and the food is always outstanding. If you are in the area you can't go wrong stopping... More

One of the regional boards on which I serve meets at Chamberlain's, and I'm glad we do. Exceptional food and service!

Met some family friends here for dinner while they were visiting the area. It was a rainy, Tuesday evening during the peak leaf color time, and the warm atmosphere of this charming Inn felt like I was stepping into a novel. We had drinks at our dining table that looked out over the lake, and shared a maple Brie with... More

Pros: Very clean. The bed was comfortable, the shower was hot, the room tastefully decorated and in excellent condition. The view out the back facing the lake is nice. Also a nice place to sit and read or chat. The WiFi worked well. The music in the restaurant downstairs was outstanding and inaudible in the rooms above. Cons: The warm,... More

If you're in the area it's so worth going to Chamberlin's. Big Victorian Inn on Manistique Lake. Beautiful old dining room but if its nice, eat on the wrap-around porch and enjoy the knockout lake view. Good bar and very friendly server.

Very popular, reservations recommended on weekends. Great food, fresh fish, good desserts, bar with many choices. Nice view of the lake. Outside tables in good weather, inside can be hot and stuffy if weather is hot and humid (doesn't happen very often). A Curtis landmark.

We went Thursday to avoid a busy restaurant and were glad we had called for reservations. The place was busy! We enjoyed our appetizers while waiting for our salads and dinners. Everything was tasty and just as we expected from the Old Forest Inn. It was rather warm, but we know there is no air-conditioning. Our only complaint was that... More

My family was in Curtis for vacation last week and we stopped at Chamberlins almost every day, from breakfast to dinner to cocktails. Service was friendly and the food was good. We've been coming here for years and never had a bad meal. We enjoy cocktails in the gazebo overlooking the lake or on the porch. The pace is relaxed.... More
