This is a 650 acre gated ranch that holds hundreds of mature whitetail deer and is a nature lovers dream! Outdoor activity options abound! Hundreds of miles of snowmobiling is right next door with cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snow tubing and sledding within minutes for winter activities. 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!

Pictures do not do this place justice.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spectacular lodge

  • 4 of 5

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..

Great Outdoor Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 30 adults and children had a great time. We would definetely go back again. There were lots of areas for the kids to be together seperate from the adults and there was room for everyone to get together.
