Memories are made at the Friendship Lodge

  • 5 of 5

The Friendship Lodge has allowed me to carry on my families Easter traditions in Alpena. Every year I rent the cottage and host breakfast for a large gathering of family and friends. The other bonus is my nieces bring their families to stay with me for the weekend and they have come to love the lodge. It is spacious, warm, and inviting inside. Plenty of room for all to spread out and enjoy themselves with multiple rooms with TV's and couches. This year was even warm enough outside that the kids jumped in the lake even though the water was probably 40 degrees.

Every year we have a new memory at the Friendship Lodge to share. You could too....

An awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Even though it was still early spring and temperatures were cool, our group had planned this basket-weaving weekend. a group of 10 -12 gals arrived, chose sleeping quarters and set up our work areas. We ate well, went for long walks, sat on the beach in the sun, and created many baskets. We truly love our annual outing at The Friendship Lodge!

Outstanding Accomdations

  • 5 of 5

Every little attention to detail is brought out when you visit the " Friendship Lodge". The house is gorgeous, and the views of the lake are incredible. We had a party of 12, and it was easily the best vacation we have had together. I would recommend the "Friendship Lodge" to anyone, and everyone!!

Great experience on Long Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge. We had a party of 7 and plenty of room. Nice amenities yet rustic environment for a stay at the lake. Would definitely recommend, in fact, we just reserved a week for next summer.

Lovely lodge on Long Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 14 (9 adults and 5 children) stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights - -it was hard packing up to leave, we wish we could have stayed longer. No detail was missed at this lodge. Completely adorable from top to bottom. Can't wait for a return visit. Thank you Erin for opening your place to us!
