Overview

About the property

Remotely located lodge sleeps 6. Get back in touch with nature.

Welcome to Double Eagle Lodge located remotely in the heart of Michigan's pristine Upper Peninsula. Escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life with a trip into the great outdoors. No cellphone reception or Internet connection allows you to relax in the quiet of nature. This quaint log cabin is located on the shores of Long Lake. Though the lodge is 13 miles from the nearest electricity source, the solar panels and back up generator charge the battery bank to give the comforts of home while preserving the natural sounds of the surroundings. This log cabin sleeps six total, with four single beds in the loft and a queen size bed in the private bedroom downstairs. The cabin is equipped with indoor plumbing including a flush toilet and a shower, as well as a fully functioning kitchen. There is a separate building for the propane fired sauna and a second shower.

With the exception of the owner’s cabin there are no other cabins on the lake. Long lake has excellent fishing with Walleye, Bass, Perch and Northern Pike, which are the most predominant fish. If one is quiet, there are plenty of wildlife to catch a glimpse of such as moose, deer, bear, wolves, coyote, beaver, otter and many birds – including bald eagles nesting nearby. If you enjoy kayaking or canoeing, one can paddle up and downstream until beaver dams are reached. One can hike, mountain bike, swim, snowshoe, and snowmobile all day and may not see another human. Finally, at the end of the day everyone can relax sitting around the fire pit watching the sunset and roasting S'mores. Once the fire dies down the night is truly dark with no influence of city lights. The stars are incredibly clear and bright!

Available on the property for your use are 2 kayaks with paddles, a paddle boat, and a fishing boat! What else could you ask for.

Couldnt be better

We loved our stay and had a great time. Also the caretaker of the property is great guy. I have nothing but good things to say about the stay and the property. We would love to return in the future. The owners are blessed with the perfect property. Thank you for the great stay.

Great Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in February and while there was quite a lot of snow, the owners and caretaker went above and beyond to make sure we had access to everything the property has to offer. Because of its remoteness we didn't see or hear a single soul for three days, which was just fine for us! Enjoying the silence of a winter forest is a true pleasure. The cabin is well furnished and comfy, and was just the right size for the two of us and our dog. The wood stove kept the place toasty warm without need of turning up the thermostat.

The kitchen is well stocked, though lacking in some modern amenities like an electric mixer. That's really not a huge problem, though, and we were able to cook all our meals, including home-made pasta and bread, with the equipment that was there.

My only complaint for our stay is regarding the water. There is so much iron in it that just the smell of it made me nauseous. There's really nothing the owners would be able to do about this since it's just the way the water is, and one just needs to pick up some bottled water at the convenience store on the way in; no big issue.

There's no internet or cell reception, which took some getting used to, but was a blessing. We read, we cooked, we snow-shoed and we sauna'd. It was the very definition of relaxing and we hope to visit again next winter.

Owner's Response: Mike, We are so glad you had a good time at Double Eagle Lodge! Winter can be amazingly beautiful in its quiet, white solitude. Since we are 12 miles "off the grid" and all the electricity is supplied by solar with generator back up, we try to conserve energy...that's why we have few electric appliances. I should get a hand mixer...Just for the whipped cream:) Believe it or not but we just installed a whole house water filter last spring. Welcome to "Iron Country"! Thanks for letting us know about the water. We will be changing the filter more often in hopes that will help. We are eager to solve the problem since that stuff is really hard to get off of the shower! Thanks again for your comments and we hope to be seeing you again soon! Laura Songer Double Eagle Lodge

Unplug and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Double Eagle is the perfect place to unplug from the world. The cabin is beautiful with all the comforts of home except for internet and cell coverage. The drive into the cabin takes about 40 minutes from the highway.

Owner's Response: Lara thanks for being our guest! There are so few places where you can truly "unplug". We feel this is a definite plus for Double Eagle. It allows you to have a break from the screen & draws your attention to others & to the great outdoors. Hope you come again. Laura Songer Double Eagle Lodge

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time. Because we were off the grid for the most part we were able to disconnect from technology and the stress of home/work and focus on connecting as a family. The property is beautiful, the cabin is cozy, and the amenities are great.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay Sarah! There are so few places left in this country where you can get away from it all. Technology disconnect at Double Eagle allows you to enjoy pure silence and genuine conversation.

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in early July at this cabin and had the most amazing time. The cabin was clean, well stocked and very comfortable. The land and lake were more beautiful than i could have imagined. The owners and caretaker were very friendly and extremely helpful. They couldn't have made our stay and more comfortable.

The cabin's location is what every person seeking to "get away" would dream of. Not to mention the person looking to view wildlife and do a bit of fishing (Which we were).

The only homes on the lake are this cabin and it's owners home. So the fishing pressure on the lake is very minimal. If you're looking for some exciting pike and bass fishing, this is your place. They say there's walleye in the lake too, although we didn't target them. There are also many fine trout streams within a short drive if you are looking to do a bit of fly fishing. Overall, we had an outstanding time and would recommend it to anyone looking to truly get off the main road.

Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place to stay and enjoy the nature. The listing doesn't do the justice to how much "away from it all" this comfortable lodge really is - in the middle of a vast forest. The lake is wonderful.

The glory of the Creator is truly revealed through the majesty of the nature.

Thank you
