Owner info

About the owner: We have loved our family lodge for many years and have had many great times throughout the seasons with our friends and family here! It is just a great place to unwind and enjoy each other with all that the house and property has to offer. The kids love it up there! It is such a fun place if you have a large family or group of friends to spend the week with!

Why the Owner Chose Rose City:
As you have discovered not very many places will accommodate large groups and our Lodge is designed for that. Forget everything and enjoy our commercial cook stove, large dining areas, lots of beds with fresh linens and towels.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located close by within 1 mile from gocery or a short drive yet Wilderness and Nature. Front yard play area and short walk down to the river. Rear yard deck, sound system, camp fire, volley ball, horse shoes, archery, range. We got it all.
