Outstanding Accomdations

  • 5 of 5

Every little attention to detail is brought out when you visit the " Friendship Lodge". The house is gorgeous, and the views of the lake are incredible. We had a party of 12, and it was easily the best vacation we have had together. I would recommend the "Friendship Lodge" to anyone, and everyone!!

Great experience on Long Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lodge. We had a party of 7 and plenty of room. Nice amenities yet rustic environment for a stay at the lake. Would definitely recommend, in fact, we just reserved a week for next summer.

Lovely lodge on Long Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 14 (9 adults and 5 children) stayed at the Lodge for 4 nights - -it was hard packing up to leave, we wish we could have stayed longer. No detail was missed at this lodge. Completely adorable from top to bottom. Can't wait for a return visit. Thank you Erin for opening your place to us!

Family water fun at the Friendship Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 12 had a great week at the Friendship Lodge. We took our boat and two Sea-Doos along, which were used extensively on the vast expanse of Long Lake. Spent plenty of time on the deck/beach area and played lawn games on the side of the Lodge where there was plenty of room for activities.. Inside, the Lodge was well kept and provided plenty of space to stretch out and relax at the end of our days activities. Erin (the owner) has done a great job with the Lodge and was very prompt and courteous in communications leading up to our trip and following up once we arrived.

A true gem in Northern Michigan

  • 5 of 5

The Friendship Lodge is a beautiful getaway for friends and family. We had an amazing time - this would be our second year in a row and it didn't disappoint. Everything about this vacation home was simply perfect - inside and out. The cabin style architecture and spacious interior design gives you a sense of ease and homeyness that is so well needed on a vacation. A home away from home basically, but with so much more. The florida room that overlooks the pristine lake was breathtaking. My personal favorite was the sandy beach with the bonfire was a place where we shared many laughs and great stories. I can go on and on. We are really looking forward to coming back for our third year.

labor day weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends decided to visit Alpena MI for the first time. Our vacation stay in the friendship lodge was way beyond our expectations!! From the moment of our arrival to the moment we drove away, our time spent here was by far one of the best times we've had. The lodge offered absolutely everything you need. It was very clean and all rooms were well equipped. There is no complaint other than we wish we stayed longer and found this lodge sooner!! Definitely a cozy, fun, relaxing place to stay at any time of the year! We are returning each year from now on! Thank you for your kind hospitality!!
