Pulling into the driveway of the carefully constructed Perch Lake Lodge, the visitor will be immediately impressed by the character and design of this log home. Stepping onto the front porch, you will be greeted by beautiful etched glass loon doors with sidelights. Loons on the lake will often be seen fishing, and will be heard at any hour making their distinctive loon calls. As you enter through the door, gleaming maple floors and the soaring cathedral ceiling of the great room present you with an inspirational welcome.
The modern kitchen is fully equipped to allow our guests to prepare the finest of meals. The highlight of the kitchen is the custom made knotty pine cabinets and countertops. Perhaps you would rather use the gas grill in front of the walkout, as you sit on the patio, with its spectacular view of Perch Lake. The patio has been designed with the comfort of the guest in mind, as you gather around the fire pit. Once your meal is ready, eat wherever your fancy chooses.......you may not want to leave the patio, so there is a glass table for your convenience or perhaps you may want to enjoy a soaring view of the lake from the deck....maybe you will choose to dine in the dining nook of the great room.
As the evening unwinds, spend some time curled up on the sofa, or relaxing in the oak rocker. You can watch TV, read, or just spend time conversing. This is a place to relax and leave your worries behind.
The master bedroom and bath are located in the rear of the main floor. The king sized bed has the same Park Place mattress used in Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Sleeping on this bed is a truly comfortable experience as you have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the cool night air entering though windows on two sides of the bed. Awake refreshed and ready to start your day in the spacious shower, which has an insertable seat, if you prefer, or maybe you will choose the oversized jetted tub.
A beautiful log staircase and railing lead to the privacy of the loft, with its own queen sized bed, and yes, it too has a Park Place mattress and a half bath. There is an exceptional view of the lake from the loft, through the character tree.
For additional sleeping and living space, the finished walkout is furnished with a sleeper sofa, TV, and small bathroom. In the rear corner of the walkout there is a game room equipped with a 72 inch, 4 in 1 game table. Guests can play air hockey, ping pong, or pool. The Pere Marquette Trail is about a mile from the lodge and is an ideal place for walking or bicycling, and snowmobiling in winter. Snowsnake Ski, golf, and zip line is only about 15 miles from the lodge. If you wish to fish on the lake, the property managers will advise you, and set up a possible boat rental. They live two doors down the street from the lodge and will help you with any concern or problem that may arise at the lodge. As our guests, you will never feel abandoned once the rental is made.
This is truly an outstanding property on a quiet and peaceful lake setting in rural mid-Michigan

My wife and I bought this beautiful lot on Perch Lake four years ago after an extensive search, and it took two more years to find the right builder to transform Perch Lake Lodge from a dream into a reality. We are Bill and Jeannie Beaushaw, and we are career educators, teaching in the same high school, and residing in Pearl River, Louisiana, located on the northshore of Lake Ponchartrain in St. Tammany Parish. I taught social studies 33 years in the local high school, where my entire career was spent. In addition, I was the head girls basketball coach for 19 years, winning 64% of the games I coached and winning numerous state playoff games. My wife taught chemistry and biology for 11 years before obtaining her Masters degree in guidance and counseling, and she has been in that position for the last 20 years. She was a successful soccer and volleyball coach for several years, before resigning those positions last year. Our son, Derek, is a 2002 graduate and was our valedictorian. In addition he was an all-state cross country runner, qualified and ran the 2 mile in the state outdoor meet as a sophomore, and was a two time all-district second baseman on the baseball team, which reached the state semi-finals his sophomore year. As we have aged, the heat and humidity of Louisiana summers are harder to deal with. This is why we built the lodge. We wish to share this unique property until we can enjoy it ouselves. We hope you will feel as refreshed and renewed as we did when we left in early July.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2010

We had an AMAZING vacation at Perch Lake Lodge, so much that we added one more night. Had a hard time leaving..lol Such a BEAUTIFUL log home on a BEAUTIFUL lake... The cabin is SUPER clean and the owners and property managers are SO nice and SUPER accommodating...Even BETTER then the pics online, can not WAIT to go back! Thank you Jeannie for sharing your Beautiful home with us💝�Jenny and Chris from IL
Nice and clean cabbin and the owners and menagment are awsome they let us check out a little later
If you get a chance to book this property I highly suggest that you do! Absolute relaxation in gorgeous lake surroundings and the lodge is breathtakingly awesome from every room in the cabin. Everything you need is provided for you, even some books if you would rather relax and read by the fire or on the beach by the fire. We will be reserving this cabin in the future for many years to come.
This was our 11th -12th time staying at the Lodge. We have never had a problem. Jeannie does a great job and the Lodge is always in perfect shape. This year we were blessed with 5 days of awesome weather and a few pike while fishing from the dock. Love the Lodge, love the area. We will be back!
The perfect place to relax and enjoy a vacation. The cottage is beautiful and well kept, the owners & manger are very accommodating. We will be going back for sure.
Beautiful and relaxing holiday weekend
As promised, have now visited this great get-a-way for a second time over Labor Day weekend. The cabin is perfect! Extremely clean and well maintained with attention to all the details. There is a sitting nook at all levels to maximize the view of the lake and take full advantage of the sun rise or set. Took off for a long weekend with my husband and just relaxed and enjoyed the calming effects of the water. We stop for groceries on the way in at Super Walmart/ Meijers and cook most meals on grill. Also had a nice dinner and lunch at Lakeside Grill. We walked the bike trail near railroad every day and ended back at the restaurant for lunch and MSU football. I read an entire book and completely chilled out from the rigors of everyday life and work. Also shopped at the local store and have to say, it had all essentials and the owners were great and the prices were very fair and reasonable. Next time, I'll bring bikes for the bike trail. It would be beautiful in the Fall. It's a great place to stay as a couple, small family, or two couples. There are two very nice bedroom with king/queen size beds. We did not go on the lake as it was cool and the pontoon boat has seen better days. Based on another recommendation, we did bring our own sharp knives, since my husband likes to cook. Otherwise, this cabin is a small piece of paradise, perfectly decorated, and we will be returning again real soon.
Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant is only 30 minutes away. With more than 50,000 acres of state land and forest, Clare County offers the outdoor enthusiast a vast playground to enjoy nature at it's finest.
