Guestbook comments from the owner

We all enjoyed the day trips to Tahquamenon Falls, Whitefish Point and Mackinaw island. The very best part of our vacation was relaxing in your wonderful home. We loved playing board games, swimming and telling stories by the fire. This was a wonderful memory for our family.

Love the UP and love this property.!

  • 4 of 5

Heather is amazing; prompt responses and detail oriented. This big beautiful house is just as described. Meticulously spotless, well equipped and appointed, a shere delight. Fishing was disappointing, but we didn't hit it that hard. Gorgeous mornings, stunning sunsets with plenty of acticvity in between. I would recommend this property to anyone. Would have gotten 5 stars except for the energy efficient fire place (set too low) and the smelly hot water. I understand the reason for it but wanted to alert others to the smell. Overall, a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in the UP.

Beautiful memories for life

  • 5 of 5

Heather, thank you! Your awesome home was much more than we could have ever imagined. The lake is beyond beautiful. The fishing was amazing. You allowed us to use your boats and made the fishing possible. This was only the second vacation my dad and I have ever done together. He has beat cancer x two now. Thanks to Jesus! My dads energy level was incredible! The peacefulness at night is so amazingly quiet. We could not find any flaws in your house. We even went on a scavenger hunt once to look, there were no winners on this endeavor. We are already making plans to come back. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts. Your attention to detail is superb. God bless you and your family!

A Family Reunion in Style!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our family reunion in the UP--and Grey Wolf Lodge was plenty big enough for all of us! I can't think of a thing that was lacking--at least once we figured out the ice maker! This is the first reunion where we have all been in the same house together--we stayed up way too late gabbing. We visited Mackinac Island--one of our favorite spots--some in the family had never been there. We did not see the Northern Lights--maybe next time. We would stay here again!
