About Rob & Jamie Baker

My family and I have been guests of The Betsie River Lodge as vacationers for the past 10+ years. When the opportunity to become owners came to be, we jumped on it! We have 4 children and reside in suburban SE Michigan. Overall our plan is to continue sharing this property with respectful weekend vacationers.

Rob & Jamie Baker purchased this lodge in 2014

Why Rob & Jamie Baker chose Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville

Having family and vacationing in the area prompted our decision to invest into the area. We truly find the mix of rural quiet with close amenities to be right for our family and friends. We love it here!

What makes this lodge unique

We are an active family!! Biking, fishing, hiking, golf, beaches, skiing, snowshoeing and winter activities galore!!

Great stay on the Betsie River!

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first time renting this property. There's a reason we keep coming back. It's great that Crystal Mountain is only two miles away for skiing, golf, and mountain biking. It's views of the Betsie River are gorgeous. I would highly recommend renting the Betsie River Lodge!

This was our second stay at this property. We just love it and will return again. So easy to feel right at home, in a beautiful natural setting. Very well stocked, with everything you need. Loved the new benches and fire pit ! The swing out back, is my favorite spot ! Thanks Rob and Jamie

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and off the beaten path, but only 10 minutes to Crystal Mountain. The bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than mine at home. The views are beautiful. We enjoyed every part of our stay, and look forward to coming back.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lodge for an extended weekend with our family and we had a great time! The house was very beautiful, clean, and had every amenity you could hope for. It was so peaceful and quiet and we really enjoyed sitting on the deck and looking out over the beautiful scenery. The boys even took in some fishing down at the river and caught some trout. We really loved staying here and are making plans for our next trip to the Lodge! Thank you for providing such a wonderful weekend for our family.

A great, relaxing week and an awesome place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Betsie River Lodge and were very happy with the accommodations. The house is clean, well laid out and nicely appointed. It has everything you should need and all of it was modern and in great working order.

The only downside is the river access. It's a fairly steep, washed out path that was a little tricky to navigate with our kayaks, especially our tandem.

Other than the access, it affords a great starting point for a 3 plus hour float depending on where you want to take out.

There are also many things to do and see close by other than the river.

Overall, it was a great getaway for our family of four.

Owner's Response: We are excited to hear you enjoyed your stay! Our apologies for the pathway to the river. Each of the past 2 seasons the run off and melt from winter snow has caused a change in the pathway due to some erosion. We are working on another alternative trail for river access. Hope to have you back in the future!
