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.

A place for families

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed by the amount of space that could handle 16 people. We did not feel cramped. The kitchen/living space was comfortable with a nice view over the wetland/river. The younger boys enjoyed the space on the third floor, in part because there was a ladder to climb to get there. We did not feel crowded with all of us on the main level. Plenty of room to sit or take a nap, watch TV, etc. Kitchen well equipped and basic items in the pantry. The side yard had enough snow and slope for some sledding, etc. The drive into town was about 5 or 6 minutes. A couple of recommendations: replacement of the floor rug in the "living room" which appeared worn/frayed and replacement of the window treatments in the bedrooms, especially on the second floor.

Nice place - convenient

  • 5 of 5

We only spent 2 nights here while exploring Ludington. This rental was everything we thought it would be from the listing. It's much closer to the highway than we thought but, once inside, you really don't notice the traffic or hear it much from the back deck/hot tub. It certainly didn't detract from our stay. Nice layout and setup and well kept. Everything seemed to work and we were happy with it.
