As a motorhome owner this is what we search for. We have visited some nice resorts in Florida, but this is one notch above. This brand new park has very, very large lots that gave us the feeling we had a yard the size at home, ours was 63' X 120'. Hearthside has an outstanding staff and a vision that will surely put it among the best motorcoach parks nationwide. The bungalow buildings that are on some of the lots are really unique. Mary, the on site Concierge, booked us dinner reservations and turned us on to a great music concert in Bay View. They have lots for sale and for rent, but there is absolutely no pressure to buy anything. It is located close to all the area activities in Bay Harbor, Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Mackinac Island. We were very impressed by the layout which was very "Michigan" with natural surroundings, streams and landscaping. It was very upscale, but warm and welcoming at the same time. The combination of the area and the resort makes this place a must for Michigan visitors.
Wow, in a time when we are looking to spend quality vacation time with "real value" this fit the bill. This campground is first class and worth every single penny with it's great amenities and activities. We found the staff to be unbelievable and the surrounding area is full of activities. Some of our family members used one of the kamper kabins and they were very clean, neat and set in the trees. For the times we used the main showers we found them to be perfect, very clean and private. They have a great seasonal area separate from the rest of the park where you can rent a really deluxe lot for the whole season. We are considering that for next summer to come and go in the car and enjoy this resort all season long. Thanks for a great vacation we will remember for a long time!
