Riverfront Lodge, Ideal for Family Getaways!
Cam & Carol Jones
About Cam & Carol Jones
Carol and I grew up in south central Michigan; her in Mason and myself in Lansing. When I was young we spent two weeks each summer camping at Higgins Lake State Park, and as soon as I was big enough to wade the river, I started fly fishing with my father on the South Branch of the Au Sable each night. Vacations were magical to me, and fly fishing is in my blood. Our love of this area and it's rivers has drawn us back here many times. Although we traveled the world during the 22 years of my Army career and our subsequent civilian careers spanning another 20+ years, Michigan is still home and we love this area. We plan to share our home for a while, and eventually move here full time.
Cam & Carol Jones purchased this Lodge in 2018
Why Cam & Carol Jones chose Grayling
This property became available while we were on vacation in the area, and we had to go look at it. One look and we were in love! The house is awesome, and the location on the river is a dream come true for a trout fisherman. We are blessed to have found it at the exact point in our lives when we could commit to owning it. We would like to share it with others for a while until we can move our lives north for good.
What makes this Lodge unique
Our home on the Au Sable is uniquely positioned within steps of one of the finest stretches of prime trout water in the world. The banks are gentle, and the river shallow enough to be comfortable wading for all skill levels. The fish are abundant. This is a unique property that could no longer be built today. (Special thanks to Dave & Arline Parker, Founders of Pelican Products for building this amazing property!). The proximity to the water draws you into the life that IS the river. You never know what the river will bring you day to day, whether it be an opportunity to view the wildlife that thrives here, or a friendly chat with some passing fishermen or kayakers, you will enjoy each day you spend in our little piece of Heaven!

Our lodge is located in the "middle of the mitten" in northern Michigan, just "Peninsula" near Traverse City is home to several wineries as well.
If you like the outdoors, you are in the center of it all here at Pelican Lodge. We are adjacent thousands of acres of public land, and are steps from a world class trout stream.
Relax and enjoy!
