Comfort, Warmth, Impeccability..

Our lodging carries through on the same promise we've made and kept with our guide services since 1976: first class only.

All who stay with us become instant return guests. We've spared no energies in creating and maintaining comfortable, impeccably presented lodging to match your northern Michigan outdoor experience. Our lodging is far away from any highway--no noise here! All of our lodges are non-smoking, no pet facilities.

Each room has....

Six of our rooms have two queen-sized beds, a kitchenette (which includes a microwave oven, coffee maker with coffee, dinnerware for four, full size refrigerator, dining table and four chairs, a Weber gas grill on the deck), and satellite television. Walls are white pine, and bathrooms are stocked with linens. Our standard rooms have both queen-size beds in an open floor plan, while the deluxe accommodations have separate bedrooms. All rooms have adjustable heating and air conditioning units.

The seventh unit has a smaller layout than the other six. It has two twin beds, a small kitchenette, and a full bathroom. There is no dining room table in this room. This unit also has satellite television. 

Rates and Availability

Room rates are based on the accommodation and priced per room rather than per person. Standard rooms are $95 per night and deluxe rooms are $105 per night . Rooms must be reserved with a credit card. For the cleanliness and safety of all our guests, no pets of any kind are allowed. Please do not ask.

Our cancellation policy on lodging is as follows: if you cancel your lodging 48 hours prior to your scheduled arrival, you will pay no penalty. If you do not cancel and do not show up, we will charge your credit card for the room fees.

Lodging inquiries should be made as you plan your trip to ensure you get lodging.
