Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 10+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. Overall our plan is to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Why the Owner Chose Thompsonville, MI, USA:
Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!
