Looking for a retreat that feels like you're far away but still close to everything? The Wild Refuge Lodge may be just the spot for you. This secluded rustic lakefront lodge on Green Lake, located on 125 acres of woodlands, offers a beautiful, quiet spot for you to unwind. The large, log home features 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths. Up to 14 guests are welcome. Walk through the front door into a huge living room with sitting area and a grand piano, which looks through a two-story wall of glass onto the woods and waterfront. What a breathtaking view! Off of the living area are the full kitchen and dining room which also face the lake. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on each level. Beds include 3 kings, a double, and six twins. Sheets and towels are included. A suspended catwalk spans the two-story living area connecting the second-floor bedrooms. Dogs considered. Additional dining area off of the kitchen offers a fun space for families to gather. Spacious and set up for relaxing and dining. Internet provided.
This home will be available thru January 2 for winter family retreats! No AC 3 night minimum Memorial and Labor Day weekends.

Outdoors, children can run freely while parents relax with no worries about traffic. Spot deer in the morning and hear owls and loons at night. By day, endlessly bird watch the dozens of species of birds through the leafy canopy, spying the goldfinches, robins, hummingbirds and even an occasional, nesting eagle that visits the property frequently. What a wonderful way to start or end your day. By night, catch fireflies in a bottle on your midnight stroll. A porch side picnic table allows alfresco dining with spectacular views across the water as the sun sets over the Betsie River – a protected national wilderness area. If tennis is your game, then plan to play a set on the Lodge’s private court just across the road which is about 1/2 mile from the lodge. There is also a badminton net set up for some fierce racket fun.
Walk down to the dock for a late-afternoon swim, or – if you’ve brought your own boat – launch it at the public boat access, next to the river just across the water. Green Lake offers clear waters and welcomes boaters and fisherman. Swim in the deep cool waters. Great spring fishing too.
Renowned Interlochen Center for the Arts, a cultural hub for talent from around the world, just 10 minutes away, is a scenic, woodsy drive along the lake. You might even hear the music – which ranges from violinist Itzhak Perlman playing Brahms, to Bonnie Raitt performing her latest, country-blues album. Traverse City – with its annual film festivals, opera productions, and beloved cherry festival is 30 minutes away across panoramic country roads dotted with orchards, sunflowers and grazing horses. The famous, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is just 40 minutes away. All this is only a snapshot of what Wildlife Refuge Lodge, “up north” in Michigan, has to offer!
