BEAR CREEK LODGE - HISTORIC RIVERFRONT LODGE ON 120 WOODED ACRES!

Grayling Lodge Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 20

Bear Creek Lodge, built in 1927, is the perfect north woods retreat for family reunions, hunting or fishing vacations or just a relaxing escape to the north woods of Michigan. The lodge is situated on 120 acres with 510' of frontage on The Big Creek (a premier northern Michigan fly fishing river).

You will love to start the day enjoying a cup of coffee in the sitting area of the kitchen watching the deer make their way to the river. As you begin preparation of an old fashion country breakfast and the other guests gather in the kitchen area you will start to plan the day - fishing in the Big Creek or the nearby Ausable River, Hunting on the 120 acres of private land, a hike through the woods, a round of golf, snowshoeing or x-country skiing in the winter; or maybe you just want to relax on the deck and enjoy the serenity of the north woods of Michigan.

In the evening your group will gather around the massive 3 story field stone fireplace.Comfortable seating in the leather chairs, an old hickory rocking chair and large sectional sofa will allow you to relax and recount the adventures of the day.

Meals are easily prepared in the fully equipped kitchen with sub-zero refrigerator, new glass-top stove, antique 6 burner Garland gas stove, 2 large sinks, an abundance of counter space; and cooking utensils, china and flatware to serve 20+ guests. A breakfast room table that will accommodate eight.

You will share your adventures of the day over dinner at the large custom made dining table (seating for 14+). After dinner, perhaps a game of pool or marshmallows and smores by the fire pit.

Sleep in one of the 7 themed bedrooms: Master Suite - 1 king, Antler Room - 2 full, Golf Room - 1 full, Cowboy Room - 1 full and 1 twin, Bird Room - 1 queen and 1 twin trundle, Fish Room - 1 full, Flag Room - 1 twin bunk.

There is plenty to do close by, but most guests never want to leave the property once they arrive at Bear Creek Lodge!

SIMPLY EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
We were highly impressed with the amenities and overall quality of Bear Creek Lodge. The lodge features spacious rooms and it is tastefully decorated. There are too many extras to list here! One quick note (this is not a knock on the lodge) cell reception in the area is kind of iffy, so if you need Internet or cellular during your stay, invest in an external cell phone antenna or signal booster device. A wireless hotspot would also be a good idea.

WONDERFUL FUN FILLED STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had 16 people come up to the cabin for an extended weekend before the holidays and we were not disappointed! This was my second stay and both times have been nothing but amazing. It was warm, cozy, with all the amenities you need to make your a stay a great one. If you are looking for a private get away with friends or family, this is the place.

GREAT SPACE!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the lodge, we all loved the 'racy' history of the place!! The description is very reliable and well equipped!! The first home rental that we haven't run out of toilet paper a huge bonus:) The kids loved the 2 swings and the sandbox as well as walking through the 'creek'!! The only thing missing that we luckily thought to bring with us is a good sharp knive and cutting board. There is only 1 full shower in the house but we didn't have any problems with that as all the kids are small and used the bathtub. We had 8 adults, 6 kids and 2 infants and there was plenty of space! My daughter loved our room and the 2 little wooden doll beds!! There is also ample fans in the house to keep cool so the lack of a/c was not a problem at all. If you stay on a weekend with kids a trip the AuSable Train is not to be missed a little 20 minute ride through the woods on a 1/4 size train!! As well as the amazing Amish Bakery on Galbraith Rd in Fairview.

FAMILY TIME

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! We did not want for anything. Enough space for everyone. Lodge was stunning, fireplace cozy and property wonderfully secluded! Would love to come back every year! Even had a fresh load of firewood delivered while we were there! We were well taken care of! Photos of the inside do not do it justice. We went canoeing on the West branch river, the Jackson hole put in spot made for a nice 45 minute canoe ride to the Kellogg bridge, and the Damn Four put in made for a great 3 hour canoe ride to the bridge. Both were just 10 minutes from the cabin. Grayling was a nice town to visit, and a day trip to Sleeping bear and Traverse City were fun too!

PERFECT FOR OUR 4TH OF JULY FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
The Bear Creek Lodge was perfect for our large family reunion! There was enough space for kids to play pool, coffee in the kitchen sitting area, group dinners at the log table, games/lounging in the great room and cooking with 2 refrigerator/freezers, 3 sinks, 2 stove tops, and 2 grills. The outside area had plenty of chairs and was also wonderful for activities: badmitton, frisbee golf, tubing, bonfires, and fishing lakes nearby. There were plenty of sheets, blankets, linens, kitchen supplies, and toiletries, and everything was very neat and tidy. The whole family loved the lodge, and we look forward to returning...maybe for a winter getaway! THANK YOU!
