Very Good

“Secluded Paradise”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2014

We just had a great time here. The view and solitude are just outstanding. This year the owner put in a new pool table and foosball table that kept our family occupied for hours. It was really a nice addition and a great way to spend some family time. As always the fishing was good, we even had a little trophy made for who caught the biggest fish. The children’s play area is always a favorite among the kids and with the bone-fire pit nearby makes for an enjoyable evening with the kids playing and the adults enjoying the fire. This is simply a unique location, rustic, secluded, and modern all in one. We will be back.

“Very relaxing vacation”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

The house was great. Rather big for 2 of us. We had the lake all to ourselves all week. We have stayed in a lot of places in the U.P. and this is the first place we have come back to. Charlie made sure we had everything you needed for our stay.

Response from the owner Thanks for the great review and see you again this summer.

“Second year here...can hardly wait until 2014 stay”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2014

What I like best about this bit of paradise is the getting away from life's hectic pace. Charlie & Dar welcome me back like family & are fantastic hosts. I learned some new things last year. It is not far from Pictured Rocks and that makes for a great day trip. Want to try a tour of Grand Island in 2014. After a day out, it is great to come back to peace and quiet... Love hiking with the dogs and enjoying the beauty around. While it is hard to leave, I know I will always return to watch the sun rise over the water while enjoying a great cup of coffee!

Response from the owner Thanks for the great review, looking forward to seeing you and Charlie in Sept. this year. Hope you had a great Christmas. May the New Year bring you happiness and joy.

“Remote, Peaceful, and Beautiful Location”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2014

The location is like no place I have been, it is remote and peaceful. I have looked to find another location similar and have not found one. This was our third trip to this place and I am planning on returning. The service is good and if we ever run into a problem or a question we call the owner who takes care of it. The home is always being updated and improved, this year the owner had put in two new larger windows to improve the view from the family took onto the lake. We were able to watch the swans from the couch.

Response from the owner See you Labor Day week. Thanks for the great review.

“A little piece of God's country”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

The lodge is very nice and is very well equipped for a few people or a large group. The lake is very nice and the wildlife in the area is abundant to watch...eagles,deer,bear,grouse,turtles and a few other critters. Charlie the owner is easy to deal with and helpful. We will be back again...thanks Charlie. The Wright family of Michigan (troll land)

“Peace and tranquility!”

Reviewed 22 May 2013

What a wonderful place! We just returned home from a 10 day stay at Poplar Lake and it was very hard to leave. We were entertained by deer, swans, loons and on the last day, a porcupine kept us laughing for an hour before he meandered back into the woods. Our stay was amazing and our host was thoughtful and attentive. We will be planning our next trip very soon.

“Peace and quiet...perfect place to re-think life's priorities.”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2013

I spent about 10 days here last October mainly by myself and I loved it! This is a wonderful place to get away and just enjoy the beauty of the lake and surrounding woods. Charlie is a wonderful host. He gave me a short orientation when I arrived and that was all I needed for a great time. The dogs and I went for walks and explored. The deck with with the view of the lake made for some beautiful sunrises. I still was able to catch the Michigan-Michigan State football game! Not even the rain almost every day could spoil my time in this little piece of paradise! I look forward to my grandson getting a little older so he can come up with his Mom and Dad and have fun on the play area as well as boating & fishing. I've already booked my time at the lodge again this year and hope to come back every year!

“Wow, It was great!”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2013

This place is great!!! Northern Pike giving quite a fight! Large mouth bass about a foot and a half! I loved the whole atmosphere, the seclusion. Your in the middle of nowhere yet not to far from town! The best part is waking up in the morning and walking thru the sliding glass door from my bedroom and out on the deck overlooking the lake! I saw an Eagle one morning, great view!

Response from the owner Thanks for the great review, see you this summer. Charlie

“It was like having your own beautiful park plus fishing and trum”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2013

Great scenery and spacious living quarters. Exciting fishing first several years. Mostly northern pike. Owner always checks to see how things are going. The home is well laid out and furnished. It is well off the beaten path, so one must take in everything including food. The outside fire pit is great, as is the deck overlooking the private lake. Boats and pier are included and help with the fishing. House drinking water is awesome. Owner upgrades on a regular basis. Outside children's area has swings and slide on wooden frame. Our family has three years there and is signed up for another.

Response from the owner Thank You for the great review. See you in Sept. and hopefully many more years to come.


Reviewed 16 Jan 2013

Charlie is an excellent host...if you need something...he is certain to get it for you. We spent our days reading on the deck and watching the wildlife.

Response from the owner Thank you for staying with us again this year. It was both a priviledge and honor to have you parents request our lodge for their 65th wedding anniversary this year. Hope they stay healthy and please say hello to them for me. Charlie
