Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Rothbury, MI, USA:
We came up to visit Double JJ and stayed in the Back Forty. Our 5 kids had the time of their lives and we couldn't think of a better get away for us as a family. We exclusively used our Double JJ log home for the first few years ,and as kids schedules got busier and things took us in different directions we decided it was a perfect time to share this special spot with other families. Double JJ has tons to do, but the surrounding area is so scenic and beautiful and wonderful to explore. Our family Kite boards and enjoys the proximity to Lake Michigan. Dunes to climb, beaches, to enjoy the water and sun by day and a campfire by night as well as rivers for kayaking make this part of Michigan a favorite for us.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Our home has the amenities of the resort, but also near to the beaches, dunes and Michigan's Adventure park.
