Edgetts Lodge

You won’t see Edgetts Lodge at first. You will see the big sign carved by a local artisan and the drive curving through 38 pristine and private acres of old-growth red pines. It takes a few minutes to get there, but when the lodge comes into view it is well worth the anticipation.

Built from the huge red pines taken right from the property, Edgetts Lodge is 5,100 square feet of hand hewn rustic log luxury and sky scraping windows. It sits high above a riverbank with a breathtaking view of the Pine River; one of Michigan’s most beautiful and unspoiled blue-ribbon trout streams.

Edgetts Lodge property runs on both sides of the river and the Pine is designated as a “Federal Wild and Scenic River” - rated one of the Mid-West’s best for kayaking and canoeing. You will see white tail deer, wild turkeys and even bald eagles in the forest. The lodge property is good for all seasons activities: trout fishing, angling, hiking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing to name a few…

As you enter the lodge, it will feel like you have come home – the perfect combination of indoor comfort and wraparound porches and decks. The lacquered pine walls, the trophies and special details: you are bathed in the golden glow. On the first floor, there is a spacious great room with a stone fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, formal dining room and a master suite with private balcony. Downstairs is a fully equipped, ground floor game-room with a cozy, fieldstone fireplace and a separate “bunkhouse” bedroom and bathroom.

The upper floor boasts a second master suite and private balcony, a family room with built-in media room and large screen TV and two additional, multi bunk bedrooms (known affectionately as the Bear Room and the Moose Room).

All in all, Edgetts Lodge sleeps 23 comfortably. There is a game closet, a laundry room, 3 ½ bathrooms and panoramic views of the Pine River and the surrounding woods. Whether you are a family celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary; a group of friends getting away from it all; or couples on a romantic holiday, the Lodge is the place to call “home” for a week or a weekend.

Why Mark Slavsky chose Michigan

This property has been in my family for over 60 years. It also has an old trappers cabin on it that we used before the Lodge was built. Edgetts Lodge was completed in 2006.

What makes this lodge unique

You will enjoy a trip back in time during your visit to Edgetts Lodge. Modeled after a 19th century Log Mansion common to upstate New York in the 1800's, you will find yourself surrounded by rustic luxury on this 38 acre private estate.

Guestbook comments from the owner

17 friends and myself enjoyed Memorial weekend at the Lodge, and what a trip it was! The view is breathtaking, as is the Lodge . To say the home is Beautiful, is an understatement . The Lodge is also fully equipped , my entire group never had to run to the store for anything ! The entertainment room in the basement allowed for some late night poker games, foosball, and ping pong, while others enjoyed one of the two fire pits . There was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable at all times . To top it off Mark the owner and Doug the on-site caretaker were wonderful to work with , ensuring my group a terrific get away . I highly recommend this cabin for a family or friend retreat .

Very rustic and private location yet we are only 20 miles from Cadillac which has every convenience a big city can offer from Wal-Mart to sushi bars and 5 star restaurants. A small grocery store is only 3 miles away in Bristol.

A perfect place to stay with a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 12th men's retreat at G. B. C. and couldn't have asked the Lord to bless us any greater than he did. The beautiful log cabin and the property on which it is located is ideal for a time to get away from it all and enjoy the blessings of the Lord. Mark, the owner is very hospitable and has a personality as such to make his guests feel welcome and comfortable. Mark and his ground keeper are available 24/7 in case there's anything you need. We had 16 men stay in the cabin and it was very comfortable for all of them to enjoy their stay. This was the second year that we stayed at the cabin and we have already booked it for next year. The men said they feel at home and comfortable with staying at EDGETTS lodge. The sacrifice that it takes to stay at this cabin is well worth it.

Thank you again Mark for making your cabin available for others to enjoy such a beautiful place. Pastor Bob

Beautiful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house with a family group of 20 people. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep. It was really neat to see everyone's faces as they came through the doorway! They all had the same reaction..."OH MY GOD, THIS IS JUST BEAUTIFUL." The home owner, Mark and the caretaker Doug take very good care of their guests! They checked in with us on a regular basis to see if we needed anything and to answer any questions we might have. The place was extremely clean and well maintained. Very relaxing and cozy, spent a lot of time around the outdoor fire pit. As far as the trout fishing...not sure if it was the wrong time of the season for trout (Aug 25-28), but zero fish caught. But then again, it could have been the fisherman?? LOL

Just spent a week at the lodge. Both the lodge and setting are spectacular! Fly fishing and kayaking right out the back door was awesome. A true getaway.

Great time at the Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had the whole extended family up for the week and the cabin lodge was absolutely perfect. It was clean & comfortable with plenty of room and felt like home right away. In all the fun chaos it was easy to cook meals in the kitchen and outside grill area. The views are magnificent and there is nothing more peaceful than waking up and having your first coffee and tea on the outdoor patio watching & listening to the river and wildlife. When we came back from kayaking on the beautiful Pine River there was plenty of room on the expansive patios to hang gear to dry and hit the river for fun the next day. There was also plenty of bathrooms and hot water for showers to clean up. One day it rained all day, so all we had to do is throw another log on the fire and play games, talk, drink, eat, and dance and just relax. No problem, because there is so much room in the lodge! We had a great time and plan to come back next year to do it all over again!

Wonderful and beautiful lodge.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 20 very much enjoyed our stay at Edgetts Lodge. There was plenty of space for my large family. We enjoyed the kayaks on site while also spending lots of time outside in the spacious yard. Slightly disappointed in the fishing, but I feel this was very much seasonal and did not stop us from having a great time. Would recommend to others.
