About Julie Varchetti

The conception of “The Blue Buck on 72″ was an idea developed and constructed through the vision and passion of Julie and Paul Varchetti. As a lifelong “Down-stater”, Julie has returned to her family’s roots in Northern Michigan. Julie’s grandmother, Evelyn, was one of the original cooks for Dingman’s Bar and her father grew up on Bear Lake in the 1950′s. Although having grown up downstate, Julie and her husband, Paul, decided to head north and have their summer home on Cub Lake. Julie also owns and operates “Full Circle Resorts” in Bear Lake Township which is conveniently located next to the convenient store “ The Blue Buck on 72″ that features 2 beautifully renovated cabins, a large home on Cub Lake and 2 RV sites which can accommodate up to 42 foot motorhomes and offer full service hook-up.

Julie Varchetti purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Varchetti chose Northern Michigan

Bear Lake Township of Kalkaska, MI is still Michigan's little secret. It's so peaceful and so quiet, yet there is so much to do all year round. From Boating, to hunting to could never get bored here. Come see God's Country for yourself. It's truly amazing.

What makes this house unique

We are RIGHT on the lake and just .4 miles from a great breakfast café (Shirley's Diner), a grocery store (The Blue Buck on 72) and an old country bar, Dingman's. We are also right by some of the greatest trail heads for all of your snowmobiling, Hunting and ATV Riding.

Awesome Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family group, 5 adults, 2 teens, and 2 little's. There was more then enough room/space for all. We had our dirt bikes, golf cart, and other ride ons and the ORV trails were very close by just a short ride down the street. The Blue Buck on 72 is a convenience store where we were able to get ORV stickers, beer and any forgotten items you may need. There is also a diner, and bar all within walking distance. The home was pretty clean when we arrived only a few little things..dishes had to be re-washed and there wasn't much toilet paper. The kitchen was great for big family cooking dinners, plenty of utensils, plates, and cookware. The lake was great for swimming and fishing! There is a beautiful hang out deck in the back with a charcoal grill and big fire pit. It was peaceful and FUN! This was one of our best family trips! Owners were pleasant to talk with as well. If I had to make any complaints the only one i would have is that we did not stay long enough! We will definitely return!

Beautiful Place and Amazing Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family group with several small children. We all had such a great time. The kids caught many fish right off the dock which kept them occupied almost all day. We loved kayaking the calm waters of Cub Lake in the evenings. The lodge itself was georgous! We would come back again and again.

Spacious, charming and extremely clean lodge on Cub Lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cub Lodge for one full week. The house is extremely spacious with an open floor plan. All 3 bedrooms upstairs are oversized with large closets. The owner is very accommodating, and the cleaning crew was maticulous. The view of the lake was breath-taking. Our Master Suite was huge with a beautiful sitting area. All the beds were very comfortable. Our family will definitely stay again...and again....and again!! You must see this lodge in person to appreciate the beauty of it!!
