  • Great stay

    by christen s on 2018-02-16 04:56 am

    I love going to Punderson. We go twice a year every year for a conference and it is always very pleasant while were there. The room and board is a little pricey but other than that I love coming here!

  • Cure Cabin Fever with a stay at Punderson Manor

    by Jennifer F on 2018-02-05 10:15 am

    We enjoyed our first overnight visit to Punderson Manor this past Saturday. The manor was cozy and charming and we loved sitting in the rockers in front of the fireplace just off the lobby. Our beds were comfortable and the in room refrigerator was perfect for our wine and drinks. The kids loved swimming in the indoor pool which is beautiful surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that showcases the beautiful winter scenery and lakeside area. The dining room did not disappoint, providing a gorgeous view of snow falling over the lake while we enjoyed a hot breakfast that provided generous portions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not have a chance to visit the sledding hill but will be sure to do so during our next visit. Our kids enjoyed learning about the history of the manor, along with the ghost stories and enjoyed doing a little amateur ghost hunting on Saturday night. Great stay at a great price!

  • Great getaway

    by AuburnBirmingham on 2018-01-25 08:38 am

    I was on a business trip and was looking for a comfortable, affordable, and relaxing place to stay for a few days. I found all of this at Punderson Manor. As it turned out the facility was practically empty of guests as it was a very cold week with some snow. My room was comfortable and clean much like you can find at most mid priced hotels. What made it special was a large indoor heated pool, which I used; a cozy fireplace in the lobby with rocking chairs that I sat at many nights reading a boob; and the restaurant that serve very nice meals at a good price. The Manor is located in a state park that has many outdoor activities, even in the winter, but I did not use them, though it does has some beautiful views over the lake.

  • Brrrrrrr

    by angeloftheshore on 2018-01-11 11:21 am

    The park grounds and the manor house are gorgeous and well maintained from what we were able to see. BUT, we stayed in the cabins. TWO sliding glass doors + wooden door with what looked like an ax crack, plus a screened in porch with zero insulation from cold or wind, all on one side of the cabin (the kitchen/living room side). This made that area so cold, and difficult to keep heated. And when you crank the heat high enough for that area, the bedrooms become uncomfortable hot. So when we went to bed we had to turn the heat down and essentially freeze in the morning till the heat kicked in again.

    I would love to return in the autumn or spring, maybe summer too. But until they do some updates to the cabins to make them insulated better, no more winter stays. Which is too bad because the views of the lake and grounds with a blanket of snow are gorgeous!

    Maintenance man was very nice. We had to be moved from the first cabin we were in due to freezing pipes. No one's fault, it was just wicked cold. The front desk people at check in and check out were average I guess. Not friendly, not rude, just there.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately the cabins do lack a bit of insulation in a couple areas and these extreme temperatures exacerbated that situation. I am going to work with our maintenance department and to see if we can address that issue going forward. I am sorry if our front desk was lack luster in your opinion. They are a good group of people but in this case they appear to have underperformed. Just average is not in line with our expectations in regard to levels of service.

    I hope you do come back. I think Punderson has something to offer during all four seasons of the year. It appears you picked a doozy of a cold snap and the comfort of the cabins in this sort of weather is a project to which we will give serious attention.

    Thank you again for taking time to comment and please feel free to contact me on my direct line at 440-564-2602 if you have any additional comments or questions.

  • Too drafty for extremes, but nice for spring/fall

    by Keith H on 2018-01-10 12:35 am

    We rented one of the cabins just after the new year. These cabins are probably excellent for spring and fall vacations, but when the back wall is covered by TWO sliding glass doors AND a wooden door with cracks along the grain, it becomes extremely drafty. You're basically shifting between sitting under a heat vent until the cabin is uncomfortably warm, and then you cut it off and face the cold draft until you need the heat again. Outside of that issue, it's quite well maintained and a beautiful place that I'd love to see another time of year.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your feedback. Yes, we sure did have some extremely frigid weather that exposed some areas of the cabins that are not as insulated as they could be. It is definitely a project we are going to look into going forward. During "normal" winter weather I think the cabins are pretty comfy as a rule.

    Thank you for your feedback and I hope you will return soon. If you have any additional comments or questions please feel free to call me on my direct line at 440-564-2602.
