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 Tustin

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 .

Everybody wants to come back

  • 5 of 5

What started as a quick getaway for the guys turned into a family vacation as it became apparent the house could sleep so many. There were no pictures of the bedrooms, so I was unsure that it could actually sleep 25. When we got to Edgetts Lodge, everyone was wowed by the house and the surroundings. It very comfortably slept 20 of us with no one sleeping on a couch or floor, and there were beds to spare. What is normally a cold time of year ended up being between 70° and 75° F, allowing us to go fishing and hiking with everyone. The little boys loved the house and the property. Just their enjoyment alone made the trip wonderful. Thank you, Mark for building such an incredible home and allowing us to use it!

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was totally impressed by the comfort and spaciousness of this lodge. It had all the conveniences we hoped for and was the perfect choice for our group of 14. There was room to spare. We enjoyed the big kitchen, impressive great room, and the privacy of the 5 bedrooms. It provided more that we could have imagined. Plus, the view was spectacular. Amazing!

This place was excellent!!!! Just beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We do a girls weekend every year in Sept of about 20 to 24 women (GW Nipsters). We travel to different homes within Michigan. We decided to stay at Edgetts lodge this year and it was an excellent choice. The lodge is very spacious and clean. Kitchen stocked with anything you need to cook. The caretaker Doug is really nice. Checked on us every now and then. Actually got to meet Mark the owner. Super nice person to talk with. Told us a few great story's about the lodge which we all loved. Couldn't ask for a better get away. The only challenge we had was the stairs to the river. 44 stairs shouldn't be a big deal but we are all getting older. Thank you again Mark and Doug for making our stay so fantastic!!!

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

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.
