Amazing lodge on a clean, refreshing lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family so enjoyed the week at this Whispering Cedars Lodge! My husband & I, our 3 children and their families had plenty of room to play, sleep and relax inside & out. The kitchen was a great for preparing large group meals. We rented a pontoon from Viking Marina & enjoyed swimming off it at the sandbars Hubbard Lake offers. The only drawback was the swimming at the lodge was not great for the small grandchildren. Our youngest are 5 & 7 and not experienced swimmers. The rocks at the shore do not allow for running in and out of the lake, and we had to put them in and pull them out at the dock. The water is beautiful and the 8 & 11 yr old who are great swimmers loved the swimming. Do wear swim shoes! Erin, the property manager, was very helpful through the entire process of renting and staying at the lodge. Overall the lodge is very clean & well stocked!

The beginning of a family tradition.....

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! The house is warm and inviting yet spacious enough to accommodate our growing family. We spent relaxing days playing games, watching movies, napping, eating and celebrating the New Year. We found the house adequately supplied with everything: from utensils, cookware, blankets, towels, pillows, games...etc. - Erin has done an amazing job creating a place for a truly stress-free vacation!

P.S. The Hubbard Lake sunrises were magnificent!

Amazing house and beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time on Hubbard Lake - We were so thrilled with the accommodations and the lake was beautiful! The house was very comfortable with almost everything you need. Great group spaces to visit with family and play games. We did rent pontoon a few days from Churchill Point, just a short walk away. Looking forward to next year.

Great place for my whole family gathering

  • 4 of 5

More than enough room for everyone. Well supplied with cooking wares, towels (finally found the beach towels the morning we were packing up to leave). Could use a few signs to let people know where things are. Laughed at the talking deer. TVs were great (remote in the main living area didn't work ), loved the rowboat and paddleboat. Only one day of heavy rain but that meant we were all inside since the decks aren't designed for coverage. Had one water leak in the kitchen that Erin got fixed immediately. Only went to Alpena for groceries twice, the Great Lakes Maritime Museum, and Maplewood Tavern to meet Clarice the 97 year old owner/bar tender. Very quiet...not much lake traffic. Nice vacation for us.

Fun summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is big, the lake is quiet, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, making it a perfect multi-generational getaway. We loved the large kitchen/dining room and prepared all our meals there. Two refrigerators provided plenty of space for all of our groceries and leftovers and the kitchen was well stocked with tools.

We used the row boat and brought our own kayaks and canoe. We also swam. The water was nice!

We would love to return someday.

Great summer rental!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a blast at this vacation rental. Hubbard Lake is a beautiful northern Michigan lake. The lodge itself is stocked with everything you need to cook food. Lots of space for fun activities. Plenty of parking. There is a marina less than a mile away which has pontoon availability for rental and also good seafood if you are interested. Would definitely recommend this rental to any group looking for a northern Michigan experience (families, friends, get aways, etc.)
