Fall Colors
Stayed here to check out the fall colors in the area, looks like a great place to go skiing at.

10/10 Exceptional

Very clean!!!! No a/c was a problem bc of the unexpected heat of the season, but we made it work, bc chalet did supply fan. Amenities were nice. Poor options for television stations, very limited and bad reception (which takes away the point of nice flat screen TVs in living room). Overall a wonderful time was had (we spent days hiking, so only evenings were spent in chalet). Would definitely consider staying here again (well, as long as weather permits no a/c).

2/10 Poor

I decided to write this review. I haven’t been writing reviews for years, but today I decide to do this because I need to let people aware of something before booking. I checked reviews before I booked this resort and it showed 4.5 out of 5 with 200 reviews. This resort has a excellent view of the fall colors. However the room is one of the worst I ever stayed. I changed three rooms because of 20 flies within the room. It is so disgusting. The toilet in the bathroom has brown stains on the side… You can think of what is that….. It is called a 3 star hotel but none of a thing related to the word of “clean” when you see 20 flies behind the curtains and 10 fly bodies lay on the the window….. I definitely will not stay there. Horrible experience for my whole family.

Gogebic Music Festival
Amazing. It was a place to sleep and shower while attending and performing at a music festival. It served those needs very well.

Desperately Needs Updating
Overall our stay was very disappointing. The entire place was in desperate need of updating - to the point that things just didn't work. The fridge froze everything you put into it, the kitchen sink was covered in rust, the shower in the bathroom was so short I could barely stand under it (only 5'4''), there was a hot tube (which is why we choose this place) BUT there was not enough Hot water to fill it let alone take a shower anytime after using. There was only one outlet in the bedroom which was completely full with the only light source in the room. The entire place smelled musty. We went during off season (in the fall - to do some near by hiking) and there is NO staff during the weekend - only staff from 9a-4p Monday - Thurs. Therefore we had to pick our keys up in a mailbox and look at a drawn map to find our room. There were enough towels in the bathroom, and silverware/bowls/pates in the kitchen. Overall I do not recommend this place to anyone until some serious updating/renovations happen.
