Property description

The fall color season in Northern Michigan is at its richest along the scenic lake side drive along Lake Michigan. The upscale Mardo Lodge is nestled in the middle of this naturally beautiful, vibrant area. Michigan greets fall colors in September, and the autumn hues usually linger until mid-October. When it comes to Fall colors, the west coast of northern Michigan is particularly gorgeous. In fact, in traveling the rolling farmland, hilly woodlands and beach views near our log home, it’s clear why this part of Michigan one of the best places in the country for fall color viewing. See blazing yellows and oranges, deep reds and russets all about.

If the Four Seasons Hotel chain offered a lake front rental in Michigan, this would be it! Highest quality, full log construction in impeccable condition on Lake Michigan. A newer luxury build, executive level residence with soaring ceilings, massive log beams and rafters, plank floors and carpeted bedrooms. Take long walks on the beach and witness beautiful pink and purple sunsets from this western facing home. Walk out almost a ¼ mile into the lake before you get waist deep. You get a secluded feeling on this heavily wooded lot but are just minutes from all conveniences. A wonderful, soothing retreat to get away from all of the stresses back home but with all conveniences you'd expect in a luxury retreat. Directv, flat panel TVs, Movie channels, WIFI, Blu Ray/DVD player with a movie library, board games as well as a large propane grill are all included. This property is serviced locally by a professional manager for the best possible experience up north!
