The Double JJ Resort is one of Michigan’s premiere four season destination resorts for family vacations, business travelers, corporate, and organization meetings.
Offering a wide variety of lodging choices, dining venues, and activities, the Double JJ Resort allows you to tailor the right accommodations, whether elegant or rustic and secluded. Warmer months offer golf with the Arthur Hills Thoroughbred Golf Club, hayrides, waterpark excitement, rodeos and pig roasts, or you can enter a world of peace with an equestrian adventure at a pace of your choosing. As the seasons change, there’s always something new to enjoy, sleigh rides, downhill skiing, and tubing. The Double JJ Resort focuses on your comfort with lodging spacious enough for even the largest families. The elegant Thoroughbred Suites offer up to four bedrooms with full kitchens, in-room Jacuzzi tubs, private balconies, and fireplaces. The affordable Loft rooms and suites offer spectacular views of the championship Arthur Hills Thoroughbred Golf Club or the magnificence of forested areas. Beautifully appointed Family Cabins and luxury log homes are settled into the resort's Old West town in the Back Forty, pairing historic charm with modern comfort. The Back Forty's stable and bull mascot farm are both close by, while a shuttle offers easy golf course access. Breathtaking tall timbers and two-story windows grace the Sundance Steakhouse and Saloon. The stunning view of Carpenter Lake and the Arthur Hills Thoroughbred Golf Club matches the exceptional cuisine offered in this premiere restaurant. If your stay is part of a business or social event and you prefer a catered event, our Banquet Chef will custom design unique menus for you, including special dietary options. For more casual dining, Rustler’s Roost and Shooter’s Saloon offer a varied, family-friendly menu. For a touch of the old west in the warmer months, consider a hay wagon or trail ride to the resort’s cookout site and enjoy dinner prepared by real cowboys.
