I was born in Chicago and came up to the U.P. with my dad to this location during the summer. My dad died in 1974 and I continued to enjoy the U.P. In 1990 I moved up with my family and built a 4000 sq. ft. house. After 2 years my wife moved back to Chicago and I stayed. I then opened the property up for guests during the summer and have done so ever since.
Charlie purchased this Lodge in 1986
Why Charlie chose Masonville Township
The most secluded property in Upper Michigan and your own little private resort. No sharing boats, motors or anything else with other guests since there are none.
What makes this Lodge unique
This is one of the largest privately stocked lakes( no license required) and the most secluded location in the U.P. of Michigan with most of the conveniences of home.

If you’re looking for relaxation, THIS is the place. It’s our second time coming here, and we love it. Fishing, corn hole, BBQing, Paddle boat, it’s got it. Nice place to go for relaxing and just spending time with family. The updates Charlie did since we were last there are great. The big fridge really helps. Charlie is helpful with anything you need or comment on, thanks for everything Charlie, we’ll be back again! Brian and Karen
Thanks for the great review. You were great guest and left the place very clean
We had a wonderful time. Area was quiet, perfect place to stay and unwind.
We loved using the canoe and kayak to explore the beautiful lake.
The kitchen stocked with supplies needed to cook meals.
Many thanks for making our time so wonderful
Thank you for the great review, you were great guests
Great place, great stay.
Great place. Quiet and comfortable. Many activities for the kids; sandy beach, boats, play set, all kinds of games. Charlie goes out of his way to ensure his guests have a great time. I can't say enough good things about Charlie and his place. So glad we found this place online, we've booked again for next year and can't wait. Nice lake for swimming and the kids caught some of the biggest fish they've seen, entertainment for all.
Thank you for the great review. See you next year.
Was great! Was able to just have family time which is what we wanted. House had everything we needed. Lake was more beautiful in person, could just sit on deck for hours. Boys fished for hours at a time and loved it. Everyone wants to come back next year. Thanks Charlie!
Thank you for your perfect review. You were also perfect guests. I was glad to see the weather was almost perfect too.
We did not want to leave!
A fisherman’s paradise. We did not catch any Muskie but plenty of Northern Pike, Large Mouth and Crappie. We had excellent fishing until near the end of our stay when we had severe thunderstorms. This seemed to shut down the fishing the last 2 days. Clean and plenty of room. We loved the game room and spent most of the last 2 days playing darts, pool and foosball with all the rain. The kids did most of their fishing off the end of the dock. The only con was we could not bring our own boat as Charlie, our host, is worried about contamination but he had plenty of boats for all 13 of us to be on the lake at the same time. (7 total and they are all included in the price.)
Fun on the lake with lots of space
We had many issues while we were there, but Charlie fixed them to the best of his ability. The house does need some maintenance, but it was very clean. The kitchen is very well stocked, and if there is something that you don't see, it will be there the next time that you stay. The use of the boats was amazing, we spent the entire week on the lake. We packed everything in and didn't leave until checkout day, which I would recommend since the driveway is rough and long. If you are looking for peace and solitude with the use of boats for free, with no fishing license, this is the place for you.
This is one of the most secluded spots in the upper peninsula of Michigan. We are surrounded on three sides for miles by Hiawatha National Forest. Are entire property is thick mature woods. Our private stocked lake (Northern, Muskie, Large Mouth, Crappie, Perch and other pan fish) is only available to our family, and guests. We also have a 70 foot dock great for fishing from. No out side boats allowed on the lake to avoid contamination but you are more then welcome to bring your boat for other lakes including little bay de noc and use our 7 different boats we have. You also can bring additional trolling motors and batteries. We have a 21/2 mile private drive. Plenty of wild life (deer, bear, birds and much more.) 2 swans that make our lake there home each year. We have the Grand Isle trail which crosses our road which is a non motorized trail which goes from Lake Michigan to Lake Superior. Pictured Rocks in Munising and Little Bay De Noc on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior are all must see attractions within less then 1 hour. We also have 4 casinos and 4 golf courses within a 1 hour drive. If you want seclusion and privacy where no one will bother you. This is the place.
