Perfect Location

I had a great time at the lodge. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need. I will definitely stay again. The view of the river is excellent and the water is crystal clear. Overall, I would highly recommend it.

Betsie River Lodge-WOW, everything you'd want Up North and more!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully furnished, very clean, warm and inviting, relaxing environment. If you're looking for a get away on a scenic river, this is the place. Owner pre-trip follow-up was thoughtful, especially the directions and things to do in the area. Thanks, it was everything and more than advertised. I have already recommended the Betsie River Lodge to my friends.

Great cabin / Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Betsie River Lodge. The location is great for numerous outdoor activities and the view of the river is excellent. The cabin itself is in excellent shape and the owners run a first rate operation. Everything was well done and I look forward to going back.

An Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5

We travel quite a bit and always rent houses. The Betsie River Lodge was one of the nicest places we have stayed in. Did not have that rental feeling because it was so clean. The outside was as beautiful as the inside. I really enjoyed my coffee looking out at the river and the snow covered trees. We did not want to leave. I would highly recommend this location. Thank you Rob and Jamie
