Danny’s Lakeview Resort is proud to be family owned and operated for over 60 years and is one of the longest original running resorts in East Tawas. This beautiful resort is located on the shores of Lake Huron and has become a home away from home for many travelers, and families/generations over the years.
Danny’s family purchased the property in the fall of 1955. Danny and his mother opened the doors to the resort in the spring 1956. “My mother, who was of Polish descent, spoke broken English,” Danny fondly recalls. “At the ripe age of 23, I decided to move up with my mother and help her succeed with our newly found family business. And happily ran the business together until 1969, when she passed away.”
Danny married in 1996 to Diane who would later operate and take over the resort. Although being an owner of a resort never crossed her mind, Diane embraced the challenge head on.
Over the years, Danny and Diane have made many updates and aesthetic changes to the property, owner’s home, facilities and rental units. “We are all about family, friends and cleanliness. We are a warm and friendly resort, where strangers become friends, and family become regulars.” Diane explains.
In 2006 Danny handed the reigns of the resort over to Diane. Danny’s once again underwent a facelift, this time with Diane’s meticulous and artistic touch. Diane spruced up the landscaping, added flowers, trees and green space. Diane had the wood decks rebuilt the on all the cabin units and big house and also assisted in constructing their 200’ wooden deck, which offers panoramic views of Lake Huron. During high season, you will often find regulars enjoying themselves and taking in the natural lake breeze and sunshine.
