A real (great, big) log cabin in the woods, with loft, large covered porch, and private beach! This lodge/cabin (built in 2002), is on a heavily wooded lot on Townline Lake in Big Rapids. It is a beautiful, full-log home that easily sleeps 20 in beds on three floors, and has something for everyone. We've slept more than 30 comfortably, by utilizing foldout furniture, cots, and air mattresses in the spacious walkout basement. A 10-foot-wide covered, wraparound porch provides an additional 600 sq. ft. of summer living area, with a fantastic view of the lake and the beach, fire pit, tire swing, dock, and raft. Put your feet up on the Adirondack chair footrests, or play cards and board games on the picnic table, and watch the day slip away. The beach is sandy perfect for the babies and toddlers. We have a raft 150 feet from shore, where you can swim and play in crystal clear water away from the kids playing on the beach. The lodge has two full fireplaces, including one with a breathtaking, 22-foot stone chimney on the main floor. The 3,500 sq. ft. lodge has three floors. The main floor holds the kitchen, large dining table, living area, one and a half baths, and two bedrooms. The walkout basement has another large living area, with a full bath, large bedroom, utility room (small 4th bedroom) and small garage/work area. The open loft has one queen and three double beds, and several twin beds perfect for the little ones to experience cabin life. But don’t worry about noise from the first floor – that fresh air will knock you out - and the kids - the moment your head hits the pillow. A grand piano, card table, play area, view of the lake and a small balcony are also available in the loft. Privacy and quiet are key at this lodge, which is tucked into the woods just four miles outside of Big Rapids, Michigan. The all-sport lake is perfect for fishing, tubing, skiing, and swimming. And with only ten houses dotted around the lake, the water is usually all yours. A pontoon boat with fishing motor, paddleboat, paddle boards, rowboat, and kayak are all included in your rental fee.
