"Excellent location, in the heart of Harbor Springs"
The Colonial Inn is a throwback to the bygone era of the family resort. The hotel would best be described as charming. Don't expect the services of the big chain hotels at this resort, but that is exactly why we like it. I spend 20 nights per year at 5 star hotels, so it is nice to get back to the simple pleasures of a quiet (and large) room with a nice view. Each room has its own balcony with views across the resort property. On this stay we stayed in a room with a peak of Lake Michigan from its balcony.
This is a great hotel for families. The kids are safe anywhere on this property, and typically within view. The pool is situated on a beautiful yard, not in a concrete jungle like so many big resorts. You feel like you are at someone's home.
You can walk to Lake Michigan (Little Traverse Bay) in 2 minutes, or you can head to downtown Harbor Springs with a 10-15 minute walk, or a quick 5 minute bike ride. We always bring our bikes, and the car stays parked the whole time we are in Harbor Springs.
The rooms have all been updated over the last couple of years. Don't expect fancy marble baths, but expect a nice spacious room. The rooms are all of nice size and some even have an extra bedroom, which is great for families. Every room we have stayed in has a fireplace and hardwood floors. They also have a mini fridge.
They have a nice breakfast (typical waffle maker, cereal stuff) in the old dining room of the resort.

"Apple Tree Inn located in a very scenic area of MI"
Apple Tree Inn was a beautiful place to stay along the bay of Lake Michigan. The view out of our room was splendorous and our stay was excellent not only in service, but many questions answered about restaurants, scenic views, and excellent breakfast bar each morning We would recommend Apple Tree Inn to anybody because the service was top rated.

I used to own a home on Lake Charlevoix and have been searching for a new spot to call home… the Pointes North Inn will be my new destination! The Inn is beautifulled appointed, we stayed in rm 105 which is particularly comfortable and well decoratated. The location in downtown is perfect for all of your needs, they have a marina for boating, parks for walking, biking and strolling and lots of beautiful one-of-a kind shops. The staff at The Pointes Inn were very kind and helpful, the gentlemen at the front desk greeted me with a warm smile and welcome. I made a couple blunders with my reservation and the staff went out of their way to help me, they were kind & courteous.
