Overview

About the property

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Eagles Wings Lodge is a 6 bedroom and 3 1/2 bathroom masterpiece that combines 3000 square foot of space with large doses of cozy comfort. Prepare to be transported back to the days of lumber barons as you enjoy modern 'rustic' luxury. Bordering hundreds of acres of state wet-lands, most mornings feature a mix of deer, rabbits, fox and any number of wild birds in the back yard. Log railings guard every stair and trees growing out of the floor bear the weight of this custom home overlooking the Pere Marquette River. Sleeping 16 people with no sleeper sofas, the lodge can easily accommodate multiple families, wedding parties and group retreats. Linens and towels provided for 16. Please bring your beach towels. Our favorite 'locals' beach is only 2 miles away.

A large log deck houses seating for all and a 4 burner grill. This is a wonderful place to sit over the river flats in the cool shade of evening. At the bottom of the stairs you will find a fire pit in the yard with room for all. S'mores anyone?

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with new high end appliances, utensils, place setting, pots and pans, etc. to serve your large party. This kitchen is a joy to cook in.

In order to accommodate 16 guests we have combined the dining room and living room and what a 'great' room it has become! Whether you are enjoying the view, snuggling up to the fireplace or watching a game on the 42' flat screen, this room is hard to leave.

The master bedroom is a log lined masterpiece. It features its own double bowl, double shower master bathroom.

The ground floor features 2 more rooms. First is the den. This is a great spot to get away from the big screen and have a more private chat or turn on the 16' TV.

Second is the Powder Room/Laundry. This is a cute 1/2 bath with full size laundry hiding in the closet.

Sleeping quarters. The second floor houses 3 themed private bedrooms with queen/full size beds, dressers, lamps and linens. These bedrooms share a large full bathroom with a soaking tub. One of these rooms takes the view to another level.

Also featured on this floor is our Americana Suite. With 3 queen beds, a huge closet, a 27' TV/DVD and its own full bath, this suite is almost its own private escape.

Last but not least is the Eagles Nest Loft. Climb a log ladder up to your very own indoor campsite bedroom. Kids go nuts for this space! They also get the best view on the property!

This Property is absolutely stunning! We are also equipped as a small Retreat Center including services such as catering, conference room amenities and local fishing/hunting services.

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5

This house and the owners are wonderful! We had our company holiday party here with 13 people. The owners even come early and had the whole house decorated and it was beautiful. You could not ask for better hospitality! The kitchen is fully stocked, including 2 crockpots and lots of spices. All the bedrooms have comfortable beds and comfortable linens. The upstairs loft has two cots for sleeping. The loft is pretty much for children or teens and should not be counted on as comfortable sleeping for adults. The owners also let us use their Wii, which we had a ton of fun with. There are lots of games and lots of comfortable sitting areas. There is an additional couch and recliner with tv room off the entrance that makes a nice little getaway from the main area. The hot tub is fantastic. The view out the windows in the livingroom is breathtaking.

The house was incredibly clean and the decor makes you feel right at home and extremely comfortable. Everything was in working order in this house. If you are looking for a house this size, in this area, look no further, rent this house!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for all the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. We will be sure to provide a good quality blow up or something similar for the loft from now on. Again, thanks for staying with us and sending this nice review.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

My brothers, my daughters and mom all went down and stayed for a week and it was wonderful. The pictures do not do it justice! They had everything there if you just wanted to stay and play games and socialize. And you are not far from Ludington State Park. The house was very open down stairs and you could be in the kitchen cooking and still here everything going on. Kitchen was very well stocked with any kind of utensil you might need. Plenty of parking also. No need to move cars every time. We will come back. No complaints from us. Melanie, Indiana

Impressive Lodge with Abundant Space!

  • 5 of 5

This lodge is stunning with all wood and antique furnishings, and so accommodating in every way! The view out back was amazing; especially the sunrises. WOW! I can imagine how beautiful this place would be in the Fall. We saw deer, rabbit, cats, groundhog & squirrels from the deck.

We stayed 1 week in July with family/friends from Florida and East Coast. The Master bedroom on 1st floor has a queen, semi-private entrance to a full-bath (with a door to the deck and hot tub), and walk-in closet. The den next to the Master has a Futon with a drape to separate the den from the foyer (no door). On the 2nd floor, there are 2 bedrooms with FULL size beds, 1 bedroom with a QUEEN size bed, and 1 bedroom with 3 QUEEN size beds in it. This last bedroom has its own full private bathroom. However, there is still another full bathroom for the other bedrooms to use! Lastly, there is a nice solid wood ladder leading to a loft which houses a cot & single bed. You can see the best view of the area from this smaller room but its also warmer, because, well - heat rises! Otherwise, the air condition worked perfectly fine everywhere else in this huge house.

There is plenty space in the kitchen/foyer/living area to put up some small banquet tables or card tables if you need them for food, beverages, extra seating, etc. I believe the owners have some of these items if you need them, too. It says they cater (and they have catering supplies) but we catered ourselves. Plenty of restaurants in the area will deliver catered food. Downtown Ludington is about 6 -10 minutes away.

All couches were comfy as were the beds. We only used the hot tub once because it was too hot outside and we were busy. The kitchen has everything you need for 12+ people. We kept coolers outside on the deck for extra beverages (recommended).

There was 1 incident when we moved in that was IMMEDIATELY taken care of by the cleaning lady and owner. Something was leaking into the garage but it did not deter our situation - we were more concerned about the structure. In fact, ALL communication with the property owners was fast and pleasant.

There is a 'dog-friendly' beach about 10 minutes down Iris Rd which is across the street and next to the store. There is a park across the street with Frisbee golf, picnic area, playground, and short river walk. The ONLY negative thing about this place is its location on the hwy. If that doesn't bother you - stay here! It's convenient to everything!

Renewal of our 20th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lodge for my husband and I vow renewal of our 20th Anniversary. This place has so many places for people to sleep. The yard is enormous and easy to entertain with. We had a BBQ after the renewal of our vows and the lodge caters to many. Lots of space. Enough dishes to cook with. Fire pit on the property for a bon fire and smores for the kids. Plenty of parking for multiple cars. Ludington right down the road for restaurants, stores, site seeing. House of flavors was our favorite spot for ice cream. This house backs up to swampy area right on the river. Across the street you can rent kayaks and enjoy the river. Mears is only 30 min. away for go karts, bumper cars and boats, putt putt golfing, and again restaurants, and souvenir shops, with Little Sable around the corner. Overall an absolutely amazing vacation.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The cabin is beautiful but also so comfortable we felt at home immediately and no one wanted to leave! Crystal was so helpful and our check in and check out was very smooth. The location is perfect for being close to what you need but feeling like you are miles from everything. We can't wait to return!

Awesome place to stay! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Centrally & conveniently located near many Michigan "hot spots". Ludington was only a few minute drive away. Very nice house with all the amenities you could ask for and the owners were great to work with. We didn't have any issues at all. The house was great! Has a great set up, excellent kitchen and very nice living and bedroom, bathroom areas. There were 11 of us that stayed and we had more than plenty room for our group. I would not hesitate to recommend staying here or doing business with the owners, they were fabulous! We hope to go back again maybe in the Fall or next year! If you book and stay here, you won't regret it.
