Property description

During the summer you can sit on our large deck or on our beach and relax. Your children will not get bored with our sandy swim area and play ground with large swing set, slide and climbing bars. The kids will like making some-ores at our island fire pit, and we provide the wood. We have 3 paddle boats, 2 canoes, 1 row boat and there is plenty of fish in the lake. If you’re bringing your own boat we are located 500 feet from a very nice concrete launch ramp.

The fall color tours can begin at our Lodge; you can take several two lane roads to Petoskey, Indian River and several other cities in the area while taking in the colors as you travel. For the Arnold Palmer’s in your group there are several world class golf courses located in the area.

In the winter the snowmobiling conditions are great; we are located in the Snow Belt and receive more than our fare share of the white stuff. We are 3 miles from the Rails for Trails by snow mobile and only 5 miles from Pigeon River Forest, we sit up on a large hill and the kids will enjoy great sledding. For the snowboarders in your family we are less than 35 miles from Boyne Mountain and one hour from the Highlands. Our large parking area will accommodate over 25 snow machines and their support vehicles.

Spring time brings Morrell mushroom hunters and spring golf. We are centrally located to accommodate your trips to the forest and the green's.

Our recreation room provides evening entertainment with a pool table, large card table, and DISH TV. All 9 of our bedrooms have 2 full sized beds and private bathrooms. We provide the linens and towels for your stay. Our kitchen is fully equipped and you can cook for a group of 50 or more with 2 gas stoves, 2 refrigerators, a dishwasher, and micro wave oven.

We are located only a few miles from one of the TOP 10 Mountain biking trails in the USA, Mountain biking in the Pigeon River Forest as noted in Men’s Journal Magazine. We are a member of the Michigan Vacation Rental Assoc.

We have a great location, remote by today's standards. We have seen several eagles as they soared above the lake, heard the call of the coyote's in the evening, the bugling of the elk when the wind is right and the call of the loons in the morning. It’s really a wonderful spot to share with friends and family and quiet enough to hear yourself think.

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why the Owner Chose Wolverine, MI, USA:
To very honest with you when I first drove up the driveway to visit the property I wasn’t overly impressed. I knew it was a lake front with its own island, large in all senses of the word. But when we walked into the home we immediately saw the potential of the facility. The entrance way opened up to the nine bedrooms and 11 baths with a large living area and a huge recreation room. All of that paled and became a secondary consideration, when I walked out on the deck that overlooked the lake and the island. WHAT A VIEW. It was the mid week, the first week of September. It was a picture perfect day, clear beautiful blue sky, temperature in the mid seventies and quiet, so very quiet. There was no one on the lake except a couple of loons. We think that the realtor hired them for a swim by, we also think that she hired an eagle and an elk, they didn’t show up then but we have seen them many, many times over the years. The house needed lots of work but I was sold on the place. We purchased it in January of 2001 and started planning what needed to be done first. Sense then we have taken on many large and small projects, always trying to improve our home and make it as comfortable as we can for our family, friends and clients.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We have one benefit that everyone seems to be looking for. We can house 35 to 40 people in the same building. We have a kitchen that’s large enough to cook for them and lots of room for everyone to either get together and talk or find a quiet corner to go read a book. There are similar facilities that offer one large building and several smaller cottages spread out on the property. What our guests tell us is that our home allows them to all be in the same place, not having to go from cottage to cottage. It makes it so much simpler to enjoy everyone’s company when you don’t have to go next door to talk to them.
