Property Description

Imagine a beautiful hidden enclave in the woods for your family reunion or gathering of friends.

Beautifully maintained, this bright and spacious property has been a family retreat for many years. The home offers several thoughtfully furnished living spaces and comfortable beds for 15 so your family can spread out.

Tucked away and private on an inaccessible stretch of the Little Manistee River, which is one of Michigan's premier trout streams. 450 feet of frontage with no pressure from other fishermen. Enjoy playing in the water or take in the river view from one of the indoor or outdoor spaces. There is also a waterfront fire pit picnic area.

The home has direct access to the ATV and snowmobile trails that connect Luther, Carrieville, Irons, Wolf Lake and Baldwin. Also near canoe liveries on the Pine River and the North Country Trail system. Pere Marquette and Big Manistee Rivers located within an easy driving distance. Caberfae's downhill and cross country ski trails are 30 minutes away.

We'd like to share our private part of paradise with you for your next family vacation. Build some memories on the Little Manistee River!

Perfect place to get away from it all!

The chickadee lodge was a perfect backdrop to our 3 families reunion this summer! Spacious, well equipped, and away from it all! Our expectations were exceeded and there was something for everyone there. Would highly recommend for large groups wanting time to reconnect.

It was a perfect fit for our family reunion, would definitely rent again.

When we pulled up the place looked average, clean nice looking home. Walked around to the back side and it was amazing . Sunshine the river , beautiful big porch. Inside was clean, more than enough space for everyone. We were not on top of each other.

Two kitchens for meal prep and gath... Read More

Great Place, Great Owner, Excellent for groups

We rented the lodge for a large group golf outing. The house was more than adequate for twelve adult males. There are plenty of large separate spaces to gather. The backyard and wraparound deck is perfect for enjoying the river. The owner was very accommodating, provided firewood, nice towels, and a tray of cookies for us when we arrived (with twel...
