Overview

Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Lakefront 4 bdrm/2 bath (sleeps 12-15)

Welcome to Boggs' North Lodge! Roomy 3000 sq.ft. 4 bedroom/2 bath home overlooking beautiful, all- sports, Stoneledge Lake. Our family couldn't be more excited to share this magnificent location with you. This is just the place for a large family, group, or couples wanting to get away together. Our home will sleep 12-15 comfortably.

Our open kitchen, dining & living area on the main floor features a natural log fireplace, a vaulted ceiling, and triple patio doors for, what has to be, the best view over the lake! The patio doors open to a large upper deck where you take in a Cadillac sunrise or watch the activity on the beach. To give ultimate comfort, and an 'Up North' lodge feeling, we have purchased all new log furniture, a new 50' plasma flat screen TV. To complete the home, we have also brought in La-Z-Boy sofas & recliners for your complete comfort.

Tasteful accents & decorations will compliment the furnishings, and meticulous housekeeping will make you feel right at home.

Our kitchen features beautiful oak cabinets-fully equipped with quality pots, pans, utensils & dishes. It includes a full size refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, coffemaker, and toaster. The counter-top bar will seat 3 and the dining table will seat 8-10.

Bedroom#1 has a king size log bed and a beautiful lake view with private HD flatscreen TV. Bedroom #2 has a queen size log bed with a flatscreen TV. Bedroom #3 has 2 twin size log bunks(sleeps 4) and also has a lake view. Bedroom #4 has 1 full size log bunk (sleeps 4). There are 2 full bathrooms, one on each level of the home. All bedding and bath linens provided.

The lower level features a large, open recreation area. It has 2 large patio doors for 'walk out' convenience. The doors open to a huge lower patio (60 ft long) and to another beautiful lake view. The rec room furnishings include 3 log futons(with inner spring mattresses). A fourth TV, a pool table, and a air hockey table are located in the rec room as well.

Step out into the 1/2 acre manicured lawn that has 122ft of sandy beach front. The lake is shallow near the shore with a sandy bottom...great for swimming and watersports. Beach volleyball, cornhole and a campfire pit are available for guest use. Chaise loungers, lawn chairs, two picnic tables, a 6 person patio set, and a propane Weber BBQ grill are provided for your convenience.

If you are into fishing, you have come to the right lake! Bass, Pike, Perch, Specs, and Bluegill are plentiful. A rowboat comes with the rental.

We offer a motor boat, two kayaks and paddleboat for rent by the day or week for your enjoyment on the lake.

We are literally minutes from the Fred Meijer Pine trail where your family can enjoy miles of walking, biking or snowmobiing. We are also a short walking distance from the groomed scenic conservacy trail that allows you to explore the areas around our lake.

Cadillac is minutes away from our home for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

Take a closer look and you will find this location to be one you will want to come back to year after year!

About Barb Boggs

Hello, My name is Tom Boggs! My wife, Barb & I live in Newport, MI, a small farming community just north of Monroe. We have been married 31 years and have 11 children. (5 sons & 6 daughters)

Our children range from 30 to 4 years old. We have a large span of ages to provide entertainment for when we go on vacation.

Barb Boggs purchased this house in 2011

Why Barb Boggs chose Northern Michigan

Each summer since Barb and I were married, we have vacationed in various places throughout Michigan. At each destination we dreamed of someday having our own 'cabin on a lake'. Finally in 2011 we were able to make our dream a reality. Needing the space with 11 children, our 'cabin' is more like a 'home'.

When we became serious about looking for a location, we found Cadillac to be the perfect fit for families to vacation. It has activities for all four seasons and is located conveniently from locations such as Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinaw City, and much more!

We chose Stoneledge lake because it offers peace and quiet that only a private lake can bring but the ability to enjoy all sports on the lake. As you can see in our pictures, the view is breathtaking.

We are happy to be able to share a part of our dream and ourselves with our guests.

What makes this house unique

The view from the living room overlooking the lake was the first thing that really made us say 'This is it!' Trying to locate a home large enough that has a big grass yard, sandy beach, all sports lake, and convenience to other attractions is hard to find.

Barb wanted to make sure that we updated the decor since the house was recently renovated. Barb decided to put all new log furniture for a rustic feel along with La-Z-Boy furniture to give it that comfortable 'At Home' feeling.

We also wanted to make sure there were activities right at the lodge. There is swimming, beach volleyball, paddle boat, kayaking, fishing, and sunbathing on the deck or beach. We also have indoor fun such as air hockey, pool table, cable tv on a new 51' plasma tv, and wifi.

If you want to venture out, take a bike ride down the Meijer Pine Trail. Golf courses abound within minutes from our front door. Maybe skiing is something your family enjoys. Caberfae is minutes away.

The location of the home is minutes from thousands of acres of state land for hunting or hiking. The Meijer Pine Trail offers miles of groomed trails for biking, snowmobiling, or walking. All the entertainment of downtown Cadillac is just a few minutes away.

Autumn Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend in this up north lodge. It is a beautiful home right on Stoneledge lake with gorgeous views from both levels of this two story home. It is immaculate with all the amenities! We went to see the fall foliage and took a ride up M22 along Lake Michigan. The colors were beautiful through the Manistee National Forest and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. We also enjoyed shopping in Traverse City. This lodge is centrally located to visit multiple places and the colors were peak in late October. We shared our weekend with another couple and are looking forward to returning next year. This was a perfect weekend get away!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 friends that wanted to get away up north for a weekend of kayaking on the lake and nearby rivers. We definitely picked a the right house to rent! It was very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the use of the pool table and air hockey. The view from the living room of the lake was beautiful to say the least. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the cookware you may need. The only 1 complaint our group had was the low water pressure in the kitchen sink which made it hard to wash the pots and pans but no reason not to rent this place again. Barb the owner was a pleasure to work with on renting the house and promptly returned our deposit right away. We look forward to renting your place next year and had a great time. Thank you again Barb.

Beautiful updated house!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 12 adults and 2 babies. We had more than enough room to sleep, eat and play. When we arrived, the house was very clean and updated. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/silverware, beds were comfy and the fireplace kept us nice and warm. We went ice fishing, and walked on the nature trails. The neighbor/manager was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great for our weekend getaway- we had 13 people in total and there was plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed the gameroom downstairs and attempting ice fishing- the weather was a little too rough for that. All in all a really nice place and we would stay again!

Absolutely Great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved loved loved our family vacation at Boggs' Lodge. The house is immaculate and has everything that you need. We had plenty of room for three generations of our family -- a total of 18 people. The beach was terrific and the kids thoroughly enjoyed swimming every day. I would have preferred the weather to be a bit warmer, but no one can control that. We did tubing and water skiing and knee-boarding. This Lodge is definitely a keeper. Really superior!

Truly a 'Four Season' destination, Cadillac offers a wide variety of spring, summer, fall, snd winter recreation. There is plenty of restaurants, appealing attractions, unique shops, nightlife, and outdoor activities....all within a small town atmoshpere. There is no way that a family can take in all of the attractions in just one week. You will definitely need to come back!

We offer over 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort with 34 downhill ski runs and over 485 feet of vertical drop, over 58 miles of cross country ski and snow shoe trails (15 groomed miles), 90,000+ acres of state and national forest, three major rivers, and a private all sports lake literally right in our back yard.

Stoneledge lake is 82 acres large. It is an all sports lake but offers a no pressure fishing atmosphere because it is private. Our beach area is sandy and has water depth of approx 5ft out to 150 ft. The deepest part of the lake is 20 ft. Most of the lake is 5 to 10 ft. There are also two large public lakes nearby.

If you are a golfing enthusiast or want to learn the sport, there are multiple 'Top Notch' golf courses and learning facilities just 10 minutes from our front door.

The well known Fred Meijer White Pine Trail, 2 miles from our home, is a 92 mile linear state park that winds its way from Grand Rapids to Cadillac, offering natural scenery and several stops at cities along the way. The trail can be used for biking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, walking, and hiking. The trail is maintained by local governments and Michigan's Department of Natural Resources.

After the day in the great outdoors, Cadillac offers unique shopping boutiques, three bowling centers, a roller skating rink, a championship ice rink, two full service health & fitness facilities, a 3D movie complex, and of course mouthwatering cuisine at the many locally owned restaurants around the area.

Add these attractions to a full line-up of various festivals and you can spend a fun-filled, or relaxing vacation. Either way, bring yourself, your family, or group to Cadillac, you’ll keep coming back for more.
