I stayed for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend and had a blast with my son visiting the Manistee area for the first time. There's a wonderful public beach a short distance away. We choose to drive to the beach but you could easily walk there as it was under one mile away. While there we visited the nearby lighthouses. This condo has a nice view of Man Made Lake from the dining area and the bluff just before Lake Michigan. We walked around the small lake and over the bluff to Lake Michigan and enjoyed the beach all to ourselves. In the evening we took some great sunset photos. Back at the condo, we enjoyed equally both the indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs. The pools and hot tubs are all large and well maintained, as is the workout center. We met some residents of Brook Harbor and they were very friendly and made our stay seem more like being with friends and good relatives.
I was very impressed with Brook Harbor in general. The grounds and facilities are very well maintained and nice to walk through or ride a bike to and from. All of the buildings look in very good condition and there's a nice marina and docks as part of the surroundings.
As another reviewer pointed out, the couch is small and not very comfortable and the living room is not set up the best for viewing the small television; however, that's not why choose this location. The rest of the condo is well appointed, comfortable and well maintained. My 8 year old son had a blast swimming and we definitely took advantage of the pools and beach area. We were sad to leave to go back to school and work but were happy we made the trip and stayed here.

Small condo. The fold out couch is for children only and needs replacement. The beach is close and nice. The pools are average.
