We stayed at the Mannsiding Lodge in Harrison, MI July 4th and 5th, 2012. It is a beautiful place to stay! The quality of materials and workmanship are amazing. Much thought, hardwork, skill and talent have gone into this place. It is clean and quiet, many different places within the property to go to and enjoy or relax. Would be a great place to go to with a group or have a family reunion (if not more then 50 people). John and Donna (the owners) are a delight to talk to. Alberta (Donna's mother) makes great coffee and helps in the kitchen. There are also 2 adorable, friendly dogs and Scot, the son who lives there and helps out. The property the Lodge sits on is beautiful, trails to walk or places to sit and enjoy northern nature. Harrison itself doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment (other then its lakes and golfing) but you are close to other major cities such as Houghton, Traverse City, Cadillac, Mt. Pleasant. As for the theater that is on the lower level, we did not have a problem getting the equipment to work, you just have to know how to work remote controls. If in doubt, John is on site to help you. We enjoyed some fireworks, and bonfire with John and his grandson who was visiting from out of state. All and all, just what we needed for a get away! Highly recommend this place and will definitely go back! Would love to be there in the winter looking out at the snow and sitting in front of the fireplace.
