Wonderful vacation rental
Wonderful vacation rental
I live in Idaho but grew up in Michigan. I wanted to vacation some place that had the feeling of staying at my grandparent's cabin as a kid so I took a chance on the Hotshot Lodge. It did give me the same feeling I remembered but it was so much better than our old cabin! The rental was nicer than I had expected, it is very spacious, clean, and quiet with a fabulous location on the river. The kids spent endless hours trying to catch fish off the dock. Our family had a great week and I would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for a family vacation rental.

Perfect Northern Getaway
Perfect Northern Getaway
My family and I just returned from a week long stay at the Hot Shot Lodge (our 5th time) and we absoutely LOVE this property! The inside is more than comfortable for all 8 of us, very roomy and well stocked . I especially love the outdoor space! We had many bonfires (perfect fire pit with a large stack of wood!), spent afternoons down on the deck relaxing with a few cocktails, just watching the Little Manistee River leisurely flow past us, and just taking in the beauty of it all! It's also close to many beautiful golf courses, many of which we played! It's quiet and private without being to remote! When you come here, you truly feel like you have gotten "away from it all"! The owners are VERY nice people, and are always helpful should you have ANY questions! I love it here and would recommend it to anyone~~we most definately will be back again next year and many years after that!

This is a very nice home. The location is in a great spot for so many activities. The beds were comfortable. The open floor plan is perfect for eating, conversation, and playing games. The home is truely fully stocked! All we did was pack our clothes and off we went. The restaurants near by have good food (yum). Tubing from the house to Nine Mile Bridge is a 45 min trip. The deck going down to the river is wonderful. Sit on the deck and have coffee! Fifth Avenue Beach is wonderful. It is a clean beach and Eddie D's is a good concesstion stand. Make sure you visti Tippy Dam. Thanks Bob and Sue for opening your home to us. We are looking at renting it for snowmobile season. Oh yea, make sure you do the bike ride throught the Big Manistee Forest. I could go on and on.

Me & my son like to take vacations now where we can just relax....and we did! Took long walks & saw deer along the way...we had a lot of rain the week we went but with the outdoor gazebo being enclosed & with TV we still got to enjoy being outdoors during those times. Bob was great to work with & very prompt in giving us our deposit back. I would DEFINITELY recommend this place if you are looking to relax....the backyard is gorgeous & love the walkway down to the river...I sat on the deck 1/2 way down whenever I could just to read. You won't regret it.

Good for a group
Good for a group
We had a group of people mountain biking at Big M. The lodge was great for the group....roomy, inside and out. Just make sure to bring plenty of bug spray! It was really close to Big M - you have to drive right by the trail head. Bob was good to work with - very prompt with questions and getting our deposit back. One of the couples in our group wanted to rent it for another weekend this summer but it was already booked. We would rent the lodge again!

This place is everything they say. Really roomy - easily accomodate a large group. Definitely would recommend and return. Hiked the Big M trail system (<5 miles away) and the North Country Trail (walking distance). Tubing was fun.

Peaceful & Relaxing
Peaceful & Relaxing
Hot Shot Lodge is defintely a nice place. A very peaceful setting on the Little Manistee River..we tubed the river which was alot of fun..water was a little chilly and sometimes a bit scary for the ladies-when you had to dodge tree branches that were in the river...but we survived...the newer deck and the new gazebo are a nice touch to the house...house is very spacious and there are 3 large bedrooms...if you like to hike there are nice trails close by....we were prepared with our food--but if you need something from the store--the closest store is about 20 minutes away....we did drive into Manistee (about 30 min) for a nice day at Douglas Park--water in Lake Michigan was warm...definetly somewhere we would return...Bob & Sue the owners were very prompt with e-mails questions and concerns........Deb & Jim
