Welcome to the Double JJ Resort

 

MORE THAN JUST A RANCH


Just miles from the shores of Lake Michigan, nestled among West Michigan’s rolling countryside, the Double JJ Resort is the perfect place to unplug.  This rustic, ranch-style resort is surrounded by local cherry and apple orchards and spans over 2,000 acres of giant red oaks, white pines and maple trees.  Simple, rustic log homes, cabins and campsites are located in the Back Forty near the resort’s “Old West Town” where you’ll find a General Store with hand-dipped ice cream, an old time photo studio, a campfire in the town square near the “jail” and Shooter’s Saloon, complete with an outdoor waterpark.  Looking for luxury?  Treat yourself to a stay in our Thoroughbred Suites, Condos or save by staying in our economy Loft Hotel, just a few miles up the road near the Gold Rush Waterpark.  

Multiple indoor and outdoor venues provide a natural, scenic backdrop for weddings, groups and events.  Amenities for overnight guests include miles of nature trails, an indoor and outdoor waterpark, two 18-hole championship golf courses, equestrian activities, indoor glow mini-golf, snow tubing hill, free shuttle service and our popular Sundance Saloon & Grill steakhouse with breathtaking tall timbers and two-story windows.

For a touch of the Old West, take a trail ride on horseback to the resort’s cookout site where dinner or breakfast is prepared on an open fire, by real cowboys or schedule a Cattle Drive and learn what it’s like to heard live cattle! 

Whether it’s the summer sunlight shining through the trees, blazing autumn colors, the crunch of fresh snow, or watching springtime bud, the Double JJ Resort in Rothbury is an authentic four-seasons destination… historic… and unique.
