The property is beautiful and perfect for a large group.
We very much enjoyed our stay here. Not only was the property beautiful is was perfect for our group of 29 including adults and children. Most of the bedrooms are situated perfectly so that if you need to be away from the main group for peace and quiet you could do so. Very spacious rooms. Only a few minor issues. We had planned meals that needed two ovens and only one was working. Second, the fridges and freezers where quit full which made for some juggling of all of the food we brought with us. At the same time, twice we needed assistance on property issues and the property manager got right on it and they were taken care of as quickly as possible. Over all we had a great experience and would visit again.
As always, a great place!
Superb facilities, awesome natural setting, nicest and attentive people managing the place make this probably the best place in Michigan to get away from it all! Will go back year after year.
Pictures do not do this place justice.
Great place for the entire family to relax. You have the feel of being at a hotel but the feel of staying in the same house. Really enjoyed exploring property and seeing all the deer. The one family room which by the way there are three was amazing to have dinner with 30 family members and playing family games. We will definitely be coming back next year for the family to enjoy.
The place was beautiful and the staff were very kind and helpful when we needed it. We will definitely stay here again
Truly is a perfect place!
Awesome stay, love the place. Jake is great.
Beautiful area. Can't wait to come back.
Even the city folks of our family loved this lodge. Fantastic gathering place yet sprawling enough for personal space. We had 8 families with 30 persons total and the lodge worked great. Mountain biking, hiking, kayaking (On the ausable River across the street) jam sessions with the musicians in the family.. all good..
This is a 650 acre gated ranch that holds hundreds of mature whitetail deer and is a nature lovers dream! Outdoor enthusiasts welcome with endless options for recreation. Hundreds of miles of snowmobiling trails can be found just outside of the gate, and downhill skiing, snow tubing and sledding hills are located within minutes for winter activities. Bring cross country skis to use around the ranch property or on the nearby trails. 18 miles of trails within the ranch property available for cross country skiing or snowshoeing. Summer activities include fly fishing on the Au Sable River, horseshoes and bonfires next to a pavilion on site. Near-by attractions include golfing in the 'Gaylord Golf Mecca' which is 'America's Premier Summer Golf Mecca' and boasts 17 golf courses that include world-class resorts and championship golf courses designed by some of America's top golf-course designers. If a day trip away from tranquility is what you need, you can visit Traverse City which is about an hour from the ranch. Here you can go on a wine tour or just sight-see along Grand Traverse Bay. Just a short 30 minutes further west is Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes which was voted 'Most Beautiful in America' by Good Morning America!
