About gaylynea frank

My wife, I and our oldest son left the city life in 1992 to move to the beautiful Upper Peninsula of MI... over 20 years and two more children later and we still enjoy all the UP has to offer.

Our children were able to grow up enjoying hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, swimming, 4-wheeling and anything else they could find to do in the great outdoors...

We truly thank God for allowing us to live in an area where we can enjoy His creation to the fullest.

On behalf of myself, my wife and our children, we look forward to being of service to our guests and ensure that their stay at The North Lodge is unforgettable!

The Franks,

Why gaylynea frank chose Michigan

My wife and I always dreamed of building our own log lodge. After 3-1/2 years of hard work and 2 semi-truck loads of raw logs that dream finally came true.

As a builder, I enjoy being original in concept, design, function and quality coupled with our love for the outdoors we were inspired to bring the outdoors in! This was accomplished by utilizing the natural wood tones of nine wood species and the rugged look of stone resulting in a unique custom-designed, handcrafted, log lodge. The serene wooded setting of the Upper Peninsula forest only adds to the calm tranquility you experience with each stay.

If you want to enjoy the many activities the water offers, the lodge is located only moments away from many in-land lakes, public beaches & boat launches or maybe you'd prefer the scenic drive to one of Michigan's beautiful Great Lakes.

What makes this lodge unique

We personally have enjoyed friendships, family and quality time that is shared in the comfortable environment of the lodge. As an avid outdoorsman, the get-away experience in the woods (or nearby on the water) have always given great peace and relaxation. The North Lodge offers that same peace and relaxation, whether sitting under the covered porch, around the fire-pit or in the comfort of the lodge itself. We personally receive great satisfaction from the experiences of our guests; their enjoyment and pleasure at the lodge makes our attention to detail worth every effort.

What a great place! We all enjoyed our stay and it worked out great for our trip.

Beautiful cabin in a good location!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin. It was pretty centralized location to the local sights we visited. I would say there were a couple things that would've made our stay even more enjoyable, I knew there wasn't wifi when I booked but I didn't think I would also have no cell signal/reception in the area. We had to drive out 20 min just to make a call. Two tvs were advertised however they were on single

View, meaning you can only watch one channel at a time on either, again not a big deal but if was kind of annoying. Lastly, when we arrived they were still cleaning the house, I wasn't too upset about it, they finished in 10-15 min.. leaving behind a bag full of dirty diapers sitting on the the top of the stairwell upstairs and bathtub with hairs from its previous occupants. I would stay here again but recommend they look into getting wifi and better cleaning service. Thanks again!
