Mears State Park Pentwater, MI. I seen your article two days before we left but did not mention it to my two daughter's and grandchildren. I knew my two daughters would not stay there. We stayed June 28 to July 5th. 2013. Thirty eight of my family and 3 friends stayed in the park and 8 of us stayed in the lodge. My granddaughter went into the bedroom with the twin beds and later could not unlock the door. We finally had to call the Ranger and he could not open it. He left to get a ladder so Ashley could get out of the room. We finally opened it my pushing back and forth. The Ranger then sprayed all the lock's on the doors as he said sand gets into them. Later, the same thing happened to my daughter in the bathroom. She about knocked the door down and it finally opened. We put masking tape on all the doors. During one night my oldest daughter thought she heard a women 's voice and woke my other daughter in the twin bedroom up. She heard it also I found them sleeping together with their door open and the light on in the room early next morning. One night in the large bedroom I woke up and felt like someone was holding my right leg down very hard. It lasted for 2 minutes and then stopped. I told my husband about it and we decided not to tell the children as they would of packed and left. We had my son's 50th. Birthday Party there and a Cherry spitting contest. Lake Michigan did not warm up much that week and down to 45 and very few ventured into the water. I would still recommend the Lodge to everyone.
Wow Virginia! That is something! Yeah, we really like the actual lodge, but wouldn't be too eager to go back unfortunately. I wonder what the history of that building is......
I wrote them after we returned as they really need to replace the locks on the bedroom and bathroom doors. If a small child got locked in a room it would be a terrifying experience.
