About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Luxury Log Lodge on AuSable River

This luxury log lodge is 2.8 miles east of Grayling on a pristine, heavily wooded 5-acre site right on the AuSable River, world-renowned for trout fishing. In fact, the lodge is situated at the start of the Holy Waters, a prime location for catching large trout. It is ideally located approximately an hour's drive from Traverse City, Boyne Mountain, Shanty Creek, and Schuss Mountain. It is a half hour from Gaylord, Michigan's golf capital.

Just some of the many nearby activities include trout fishing, golfing, canoeing, and swimming, in the summer, as well as shopping and hiking. In the winter, you can enjoy downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling.

With 2250 square feet, it very comfortably accommodates up to 8 people.* The main floor consists of the great room, the dining area, kitchen, master bedroom and bath, and a lovely sun room. The entire interior of the lodge is furnished with beautiful knotty pine, providing that natural feel and connection with the beauty of the outdoors. The great room is situated right in the middle of the lodge. It leads out onto the large deck and has large windows along the wall to let in the light. There is a large couch and comfy chairs to relax in, as well as a television and stereo for your pleasure. The sun room, is an ideal place to bring the outdoors in. There are large picturesque windows to let in lots of natural light, comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy the view and partake in some bird-watching, and a table for card and board games.

There are 4 bedrooms: The master bedroom on the first/main floor, two on the second floor, each with two twin beds, a loft (also on the second floor) which also has two twin beds, and a fourth bedroom in the basement. There are 3 full bathrooms: one on the first/main floor, one on the second floor, equipped with a combination shower/bathtub, and one in the basement. The lodge also contains a fully equipped kitchen and laundry room. Amenities include a fireplace, satellite television, and a gas grill located out on the deck. The deck is very large and provides a very comfortable area on which to grill, relax, and take in the sights. It provides a filtered view of the beautiful AuSable, looking out through a heavily wooded area full of pines, spruces, and cedars. Down below the deck is a fire pit and open backyard, good for tossing a football around or setting up a game of soccer, and setting up a campfire that everyone can gather 'round.

*While the lodge comfortably houses 8 people, we are open to allowing more guests to stay at one time. Please, contact the owner with your requests and questions and they'll be sure to work with you to accommodate you on your inquiry!

Top notch

  • 5 of 5

There is not much more I can say that hasn't already been expressed in the previous reviews. This place is fantastic. Not only is the property top notch, the location is wonderful. The owner was a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and friendly and I look forward to enjoying more great getaways here if I'm lucky enough.

Serene setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, spacious and open with plenty of room for our family of seven. The owner, Bill, was very accommodating and really nice. The house is surrounded by woods and a short stroll to the river - beautiful location!
