A house upon arrival that will take your breath away. The Smiling Moose Lodge is perfect for your next getaway or corporate retreat. The house sleeps 16 in beds and has plenty of space for the whole family, extended family and then some. You probably haven't ever heard of Mesick, MI, but you'll be sure to talk about it after your stay with us. Mesick is centrally located between Traverse City (think Cherry Festival), Crystal Mountain Ski and Golf Resort, Cadillac, and Caberfae Peaks ski resort. We have over 12 acres for you to explore and the house is conveniently located 1/4 mile off of the ORV trail for snowmobiling, quads and side-by-sides. Bring all of your toys, we have plenty of room for parking. The Hodenpyl Dam Pond is 3 minutes away and you can enjoy all of nature by canoe, kayak or boat. There are many canoe trip outfitters close by, or bring your own and make a day trip out of it down the Manistee River. The possibilities are endless and we can help.

Why Ryan chose Mesick
What more could you want in an Up North Michigan getaway? A genuine log cabin (the word cabin makes you think small and this is certainly not small), secluded in the woods with nature surrounding you, a pond out back and a stream flowing through the property. You can't help but let all of your cares go after you enter the house. The quaint Village of Mesick is the setting and you are close to everything "Up North" Michigan has to offer.
What makes this House unique
You'll feel right at home while staying at the Smiling Moose Lodge. A big, comfortable, sectional couch beckons you to relax. Supremely comfortable new beds with soft linens welcome you to a great night of sleep. All the comforts of home are at your fingertips with wi-fi, big television above the fireplace and a second tv in the loft, full cable tv service with DVR and a ping pong/air hockey table for family fun. Step outside on the large front deck where you can watch the sun rise over the trees to the East and see the deer feeding in the field. Out back you have a fire pit with an endless supply of wood. Roast your marshmallows with a backdrop soundtrack of the pond fountain and bullfrogs.

We really enjoyed the house…it was HUGE, and it was very clean.
Great place and Ryan was awesome to work with
The cabin is very nice well stocked with everything we needed. The views are great.
Wonderful house. Very spacious and well equipped. Owners were very helpful. Would absolutely rent again when in the Mesick area.
Great space for a large group
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin! The space inside and outside was perfect for our large family. The cabin was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with tools for cooking in. Our grands had fun playing air hockey and enjoying campfires in the evening. We were close to so many wonderful lakeshore attractions and we especially enjoyed hiking at Sleeping Bear Dunes and the beach in Frankfurt. Ryan was very easy to work with!
Large home, perfect for a family reunion
Our family rents a large house every year. We all agreed this was the nicest house with a wonderful floor plan. Outdoor space was great for games and there was lots to do nearby. Owner was a joy to deal with.
Would not rent again.Owner asked about us after we had paid our deposit??
A lovely house in a very depressed area. Fully appointed kitchen and nice linens but the featured fireplace on the VRBO website is non-functional. Two large tubs had signs in them saying, "Do not use". A minisucal outdoor firepit with no firewood and a gad grill without propane. The owner was responsive to these concerns but after the fact.
I did address your concerns after your stay and did refund you for the propane you had to purchase. I apologize for that inconvenience. Mesick is not a thriving metropolis, but we are very fond of our little Up North town where everyone is friendly and would give you the shirt off their back even if they don't have one. We have since added a large fire pit and an endless supply of firewood is provided. The fireplace inside the home works great, but at your time of stay we were having some issues. I am sorry for any inconvenience.
