We welcome children of all ages as our very special guests. There is no additional room charge for children under the age of 12. We ask that young children be supervised at all times.
As part of our commitment to provide the highest level of service, we welcome friendly dogs (up to 50 lbs.) in select rooms on our first floor of lodging. Prior arrangements must be made and guests are charged a fee of $55 per stay, up to 5 days. Dogs are not allowed in our common areas and must be kept on a leash or in a kennel or crate while on grounds. Pets found in a non pet-friendly room will be charged a fee.
Stafford’s Crooked River Lodge & Suites aims to accommodate guests with disabilities. Several of our guest rooms are wheelchair accessible. Should you require special assistance of any kind, please let us know in advance so that we can assure your visit is hassle-free and memorable.
24 Hour Front Desk
Our front desk operates 24 hours each day and a professional associate is eager to assist with your request at all times.
Business Center Services
For those requiring the conveniences of an office, we are happy to provide complimentary business center services such as facsimile transmissions, photo copies and e-mail service. Guests may receive faxes at 231-548-1105 and should have the sender note the guests name and arrival date on a cover page. Email may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should also include the guest’s name and arrival in the subject line. A guest computer is located in the loft above the lobby. We are also pleased to offer complimentary wireless Internet access throughout the property.
Most guest rooms have a balcony. All balconies are non-smoking. Balconies, including those on the first floor, are designed to be accessed only from the guest room. Please do not attempt to “hop” over the rail to access the front lawn or another balcony.
House guests can enjoy our cozy loft, located above the main lobby. Guests will find games, books, a 53-inch TV, card table and a pool table. The loft is only accessible by stairs.
Just underneath the main stairs in our lobby is Stafford’s Little Lodge. Children can read, play and color while adults relax in our cozy lobby. Children should be supervised at all times.
Outdoor Fire Pit
Our outdoor fire pit is open year round! Custom built and located on our patio, overlooking the Crooked River.
