About the property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Eagles Wings Lodge is a 6 bedroom and 3 1/2 bathroom masterpiece that combines 3000 square foot of space with large doses of cozy comfort. Prepare to be transported back to the days of lumber barons as you enjoy modern 'rustic' luxury. Bordering hundreds of acres of state wet-lands, most mornings feature a mix of deer, rabbits, fox and any number of wild birds in the back yard. Log railings guard every stair and trees growing out of the floor bear the weight of this custom home overlooking the Pere Marquette River. Sleeping 16 people with no sleeper sofas, the lodge can easily accommodate multiple families, wedding parties and group retreats. Linens and towels provided for 16. Please bring your beach towels. Our favorite 'locals' beach is only 2 miles away.

A large log deck houses seating for all and a 4 burner grill. This is a wonderful place to sit over the river flats in the cool shade of evening. At the bottom of the stairs you will find a fire pit in the yard with room for all. S'mores anyone?

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with new high end appliances, utensils, place setting, pots and pans, etc. to serve your large party. This kitchen is a joy to cook in.

In order to accommodate 16 guests we have combined the dining room and living room and what a 'great' room it has become! Whether you are enjoying the view, snuggling up to the fireplace or watching a game on the 42' flat screen, this room is hard to leave.

The master bedroom is a log lined masterpiece. It features its own double bowl, double shower master bathroom.

The ground floor features 2 more rooms. First is the den. This is a great spot to get away from the big screen and have a more private chat or turn on the 16' TV.

Second is the Powder Room/Laundry. This is a cute 1/2 bath with full size laundry hiding in the closet.

Sleeping quarters. The second floor houses 3 themed private bedrooms with queen/full size beds, dressers, lamps and linens. These bedrooms share a large full bathroom with a soaking tub. One of these rooms takes the view to another level.

Also featured on this floor is our Americana Suite. With 3 queen beds, a huge closet, a 27' TV/DVD and its own full bath, this suite is almost its own private escape.

Last but not least is the Eagles Nest Loft. Climb a log ladder up to your very own indoor campsite bedroom. Kids go nuts for this space! They also get the best view on the property!

This Property is absolutely stunning! We are also equipped as a small Retreat Center including services such as catering, conference room amenities and local fishing/hunting services.

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

This house and the owners are wonderful! We had our company holiday party here with 13 people. The owners even come early and had the whole house decorated and it was beautiful. You could not ask for better hospitality! The kitchen is fully stocked, including 2 crockpots and lots of spices. All the bedrooms have comfortable beds and comfortable linens. The upstairs loft has two cots for sleeping. The loft is pretty much for children or teens and should not be counted on as comfortable sleeping for adults. The owners also let us use their Wii, which we had a ton of fun with. There are lots of games and lots of comfortable sitting areas. There is an additional couch and recliner with tv room off the entrance that makes a nice little getaway from the main area. The hot tub is fantastic. The view out the windows in the livingroom is breathtaking.

The house was incredibly clean and the decor makes you feel right at home and extremely comfortable. Everything was in working order in this house. If you are looking for a house this size, in this area, look no further, rent this house!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for all the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We will be sure to provide a good quality blow up or something similar for the loft from now on. Again, thanks for staying with us and sending this nice review.

Renewal of our 20th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lodge for my husband and I vow renewal of our 20th Anniversary. This place has so many places for people to sleep. The yard is enormous and easy to entertain with. We had a BBQ after the renewal of our vows and the lodge caters to many. Lots of space. Enough dishes to cook with. Fire pit on the property for a bon fire and smores for the kids. Plenty of parking for multiple cars. Ludington right down the road for restaurants, stores, site seeing. House of flavors was our favorite spot for ice cream. This house backs up to swampy area right on the river. Across the street you can rent kayaks and enjoy the river. Mears is only 30 min. away for go karts, bumper cars and boats, putt putt golfing, and again restaurants, and souvenir shops, with Little Sable around the corner. Overall an absolutely amazing vacation.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The cabin is beautiful but also so comfortable we felt at home immediately and no one wanted to leave! Crystal was so helpful and our check in and check out was very smooth. The location is perfect for being close to what you need but feeling like you are miles from everything. We can't wait to return!

Awesome place to stay! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Centrally & conveniently located near many Michigan "hot spots". Ludington was only a few minute drive away. Very nice house with all the amenities you could ask for and the owners were great to work with. We didn't have any issues at all. The house was great! Has a great set up, excellent kitchen and very nice living and bedroom, bathroom areas. There were 11 of us that stayed and we had more than plenty room for our group. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here or doing business with the owners, they were fabulous! We hope to go back again maybe in the Fall or next year! If you book and stay here, you won't regret it.

The property is awesome

  • 5 of 5

The rustic look inside along with the open floor plan makes it ideal for a large group get together. There are many things to do in the area which is another great plus for a group.

We really enjoy coming back. We have made this our yearly retreat for the last three years.

Beautiful place

  • 3 of 5

Very nice home and beautiful furnishings. Perfect for our 5 couples winter get-away. Had everything we needed from bedding to kitchen utensils.The hot tub was nice, right on the deck. We even used the firepit.... in Feb.! We did have to drive everywhere we went....hiking, beach walking, ice fishing etc., but it wasn't to far.

Only thing is we have been back for 3 weeks and no sign of my security deposit. I have sent 2 e-mails without a reply.
