About the Property

Lodge, 7 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-20)

Bear Creek Lodge, built in 1927, is the perfect northwoods retreat for family reunions, hunting or fishing vacations or just a relaxing escape to the north woods of Michigan. The lodge is situated on 120 acres with 510' of frontage on The Big Creek (a premier northern Michigan flyfishing river).

You will love to start the day enjoying a cup of coffee in the sitting area of the kitchen watching the deer make their way to the river. As you begin preparation of an old fashion country breakfast and the other guests gather in the kitchen area you will start to plan the day - fishing in the Big Creek or the nearby Ausable River, Hunting on the 120 acres of private land, a hike through the woods, a round of golf, snowshoeing or x-country skiing in the winter; or maybe you just want to relax on the deck and enjoy the serenity of the north woods of Michigan.

In the evening your group will gather around the massive 3 story fieldstone fireplace. Comfortable seating in the leather chairs, an old hickory rocking chair and large sectional sofa will allow you to relax and recount the adventures of the day.

Meals are easily prepared in the fully equipped kitchen with sub-zero refrigerator, new glasstop stove, antique 6 burner Garland gas stove, 2 large sinks, an abundance of counterspace; and cooking utensils, china and flatware to serve 20+ guests. A breakfast room table that will accomadate eight.

You will share your adventures of the day over dinner at the large custom made dining table (seating for 14+). After dinner, perhaps a game of pool or marshmellows and smores by the firepit.

Sleep in one of the 7 themed bedrooms: Master Suite - 1 king, Antler Room - 2 full, Golf Room - 1 full, Cowboy Room - 1 full and 1 twin, Bird Room - 1 queen and 1 twin trundle, Fish Room - 1 full, Flag Room - 1 twin bunk.

There is plenty to do close by, but most guests never want to leave the property once they arrive at Bear Creek Lodge!
