About gaylynea frank
My wife, I and our oldest son left the city life in 1992 to move to the beautiful Upper Peninsula of MI... over 20 years and two more children later and we still enjoy all the UP has to offer. Our children were able to grow up enjoying hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, swimming, 4-wheeling and anything else they could find to do in the great outdoors... We truly thank God for allowing us to live in an area where we can enjoy His creation to the fullest. On behalf of myself, my wife and our children, we look forward to being of service to our guests and ensure that their stay at The North Lodge is unforgettable!

Why gaylynea frank chose McMillan
My wife and I always dreamed of building our own log lodge. After 3-1/2 years of hard work and 2 semi-truck loads of raw logs that dream finally came true. As a builder, I enjoy being original in concept, design, function and quality coupled with our love for the outdoors we were inspired to bring the outdoors in! This was accomplished by utilizing the natural wood tones of nine wood species and the rugged look of stone resulting in a unique custom-designed, handcrafted, log lodge. The serene wooded setting of the Upper Peninsula forest only adds to the calm tranquility you experience with each stay. If you want to enjoy the many activities the water offers, the lodge is located only moments away from many in-land lakes, public beaches & boat launches or maybe you'd prefer the scenic drive to one of Michigan's beautiful Great Lakes.
What makes this Lodge unique
We personally have enjoyed friendships, family and quality time that is shared in the comfortable environment of the lodge. As an avid outdoorsman, the get-away experience in the woods (or nearby on the water) have always given great peace and relaxation. The North Lodge offers that same peace and relaxation, whether sitting under the covered porch, around the fire-pit or in the comfort of the lodge itself. We personally receive great satisfaction from the experiences of our guests; their enjoyment and pleasure at the lodge makes our attention to detail worth every effort.

Great host, great accomodations, great time. We will be returning.
AWESOME!! We'll leave the light on for you!
Enjoyed our stay. Good location for what we wanted to do. The lodge had everything we needed.
So glad your stay was enjoyable! The lodge is central to so many activities that the beautiful U.P. has to offer... I am glad you were able to enjoy the sites.
Great Location for Area Work
Was perfect for our crew who was in the area for work. After long days could return to a warm house with plenty of room to spread out. Two full bathrooms and plenty of parking space was a great convenience. Only minor negatives to note for future guests is kitchen area is small (can only have 1-2 people working on food prep at a time) and no WiFi/minimal cell service to communicate.
We are so glad we were able to accommodate your crew! Cell service is continually improving; however, I do enjoy the solitude of No WiFi (forced relaxation!!) :)
I hope you will consider The North Lodge if your work brings you back to the area.
Great spot, very clean!
We had a blast spending the week at the cabin. We rode snowmobiles the entire week and covered over 600 miles. The only issue we had was finding access to the trail heads the first day due to the warmer weather melting the snow off of the county roads. The cabin was a welcomed retreat after spending a long day on the trails.
Sounds absolutely AWESOME!!! So glad the lodge was able to accommodate your Memory Making Adventure!
Great cabin to stay at!!! I like the open floor plan, very comfortable a. Phone service spotty. I know that some of the county roads are trails i just wish they would leave a bit of snow on the side of roads or cut the banks down a bit. My son left his credit/debit cards and drivers license and cash and they got it all back to us !!! I would stay here again
Thank you Diane, a lot of sweat, tears & joy are built into the design, we are happy it was a comfortable fit. -- We hope y'all will come back and enjoy another visit!
