Stafford’s Crooked River Lodge and Suites is nestled in Alanson, on the picturesque Crooked River, part of the famed Inland Waterway. Our family-friendly hotel is within arms reach to recreational trails, river activities, skiing and snowmobiling.
Most of our guest rooms & suites have a private balcony with views of the Crooked River and include a complimentary breakfast. Guests have access to our indoor pool featuring a waterfall and hot tub and is open 24 hours per day. We are also proud to have a number of dog-friendly rooms.
The family activities that surround us are endless! Guests of all ages will enjoy feeding the fish in our private pond or relaxing in our grand lobby, which features fresh popcorn and a welcoming fire while children enjoy the Little Lodge playhouse under the stairs. Guests also enjoy our cozy loft filled with games, a television and comfortable seating.
In the warmer months, guests have access to complimentary paddle boats, kayaks, a fishing dock and can explore northern Michigan at its best on our nature trails.
During the winter, snowshoes are available for exploring the 30 acres surrounding the lodge and our deeded connector gives access to Indian River, Harbor Springs and Mackinaw snowmobile trails.
