About Alisha Gebhardt

The primary purpose of the ranch is trophy buck hunts in the fall. During the off season, the three owners like to go there to spend time with friends and family.

Alisha Gebhardt purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Alisha Gebhardt chose Grayling

This property has all of the amenities you desire! This is NOT your typical rental property to make money. Everything about this lodge is warm, cozy, and new! It is remote with room to roam and enjoy nature and the company of others. There have been reunions, man-cations, and snowmobile excursions held on the property

What makes this lodge unique

One unique benefit is that the Ranch Manager is on site. Should there be a problem, he is located within the property and is very knowledgeable about the area. The huge deck that expands the whole back of the lodge overlooks the AuSable River and is absolutely beautiful in every season! The numerous trophy mounts throughout the lodge will have you in awe of wildlife. Nearly every mount if from the property of one of the owners own mounts.

Great Family Reunion Facility!

  • 5 of 5
We held our first family reunion in over 20 years at Valhalla ranch. There were 28 of us ranging from 4 years old to 87. We all LOVED this place. We had plenty of room and privacy. The rooms and facility was very clean. The on-site caretaker was helpful. The kids caught and released several fish in the pond. We made S'mores over the campfire. Several family members want to meet here again in 2 years. I highly recommend this place for family reunions.

Summer reunion

  • 5 of 5
We had 9 families, with kids from 5 - 23 yrs old. Each family was able to have their own bathroom and sleep area, which made it very comfortable. The dining area was large enough for all of us and made meal time easy. The layout of the lodge worked very well too; with several different areas for groups to hang out. Kids could be watching a movie, teens play pool, and adults out at the fire pit. Jake the ranch manager was very friendly and took a group of dads and a few (older) kids to the shooting range. The pictures were accurate and the lodge and grounds were very well maintained. We did take one excursion down the Au Sable river which was about 35min away. There is a nice local bar/restaurant about 3 miles away. Everyone was very happy with the time we spent at Valhalla!

Had a great time for our annual Christmas in July family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We pick a different location each year to have our annual family reunion, and we picked Vahilla for this year. What a great choice. Owners were very easy to work with, and very accommodating.

Facility was everything it was described to be, and even more. Could not have asked for a better place.

Valhalla dominated the poor weather...

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Valhalla was excellent. The weather didn’t cooperate but you wouldn’t know it with such spacious accommodations and numerous things to do. At one time we had 3 cards games going, a billiards game all while everyone could easily view one of the two main large tv’s to watch the derby. We easily accommodated 16 men without sharing beds. 1 kitchen was more than adequate for preparing meals and the 2nd kitchen was reserved for beverages. The tiled master shower and bedroom were over the top. Wifi was an excellent bonus feature. The “Liars Club” and enormous deck allowed us to enjoy the outdoors while staying dry. The covered shooting range provided excellent cover to allow usage during the rain. The range included 50 and 100 yards target boards to allow various caliber of weaponry. The lodge had hall of fame credentials of deer, moose, bear, etc. that any avid hunter would be jealous of. I would not hesitate to come back and in fact we are discussing when everyone would be available for an up north golf trip with so many excellent courses within a 40 min drive. Thanks to all at Valhalla Ranch.

This is a 650 acre gated ranch that holds hundreds of deer and is a nature lovers dream! Outdoor activity options abound! Hundreds of miles of snowmobiling is 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 sightsee along Grand Traverse Bay. Just a short 30 minutes farther west is Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes which was voted 'Most Beautiful in America' by Good Morning America in 2011!
