Red & Doris DeGrave purchased the property 60+ years ago. In 1989 construction was started on the lodge and has been continually improved over the years. The Lodge is now enjoyed and maintained by the 8 DeGrave children.

This is where the family gets together for reunions, holidays and other special occasions. We enjoy hunting, horseback riding, flying, corn roasts, 4 wheeling and just catching up with each other around the fire.

A Peaceful Relaxing Getaway, Quiet Secluded Solitude! Great Trails for Horses!

We spent 5 days at Red's Cedar Lodge and had a great time with friends and family. The Lodge is amazing and quite large; big enough for 3 or 4 families! The bedrooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable! The kids loved having thier own bed in the loft. Most everything is provided, just bring your own food and drinks and fun. The property was clean and well maintained with so much to do and see (Horseshoe pits, trampoline, bean bag game, vollyball net and endless woods with nice trails). The firepit is relaxing to sit around at night and listen to the Whip-poor-will sing; firewood is provided! We brought our horses with us; there are 3 well constructed mostly shaded large horse corrals with a water facet is nearby. The trails are endless as I'm sure we didn't ride them all. The cabin has gas lights that can be lit at night when the generator is shut off. The generator turns on and shuts off from inside of the house which made it very convenient. We had good cell phone coverage. I highly recommend Red's Lodge to anyone wanting to get away for a few days. Many thanks to the owners for their hospitality and for ensuring we had an enjoyable stay!

Beautiful Private Family Getaway...Bring Your Horses!

Our family stayed at Red's Cedar Lodge with two other families and took our horses for 5 days of beautiful scenic riding around this property and the forest around this property, as well as a relaxing good time.
The cabin and property was clean, well kept, and comfortably fit all our needs for our vacation. The kids thought the loft area with twin beds was the best place in the cabin. We all enjoyed all the amenities this cabin had to offer. There were six horses total brought to this private secluded cabin and 5 dogs as well. With the private setting, we felt comfortable leaving our dogs run around the property, and had no worries with the secure corrals for the horses.
The town of Rapid River is a very short drive so we were able to purchase all our groceries locally, as well as stop at the Dairy Flo for the best ice cream we have ever tasted!
We would highly recommend you take your family to enjoy this beautiful setting!

Horseback Riders Retreat

We arrived just before dark but could still see well enough to get set up. The wooden corrals for the horses were great and very safe. A water hydrant was close by for water for the horses. The trails were sandy so no need for shoes and there is miles to ride. The cabin was very roomy for three couples and the two teenagers with everyone having their own beds! It was very clean and provided everything we needed. Sitting around the fire pit in the evening listening to the whippoorwills was very relaxing. Great time had by all! Would highly recommend to families who are looking for a quiet get away. It's a close drive to many of the U.P.'s many attractions. Looking forward to another trip back!

Great place to get away

My family and I had an excellent time. There was plenty of room to do whatever you like. It did not take too long for us to get up to the lake during the hot parts of the day and enjoyed coming back to cook on the grill. We were worried about cold food items as there is limited electricity, but to our surprize there was a gas refrigerator. Plenty of supplies were there, so we anything we may have forgotten was taken care of. My recommendation is to bring lots of friends there is plenty of room for all to sleep. Thanks again for the great weekend.

Our Family Gathering at Red's Cedar Lodge

Our Family Gathering at Red's Cedar Lodge

Red's lodge is a great affordable place for a family gathering. With clean, comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms, great eating areas, a brand new grill and good kitchen. It's about 7 miles from town and surrounded by state forest, so very quiet and private. To be honest, we did have a problem with mice during our stay. I guess it's to be expected given the setting and the cooler end of summer nights enticing them to move into warmer places. We used peanut butter and caught 3 in traps we picked up in town our second night. I would caution folks to watch the generator use, we stayed up late playing games and watching movies and paid an extra $120 for the 12 extra hours of generator use. Guests are asked to use no more than 6 hours of generated electrical power each day. Even with these issues, I would recommend Red's lodge for anyone looking for a place to gather a large family, the kids had a great time on the trampoline and with the outside yard games. We drove about 12 miles and spent days on the lake and returned at night, grilled and enjoyed campfires and a wonderful meteor shower, the stars were amazing!
