About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath with Rolling Hilltop Views

White Pine Lodge has a privileged location. It's quiet and peaceful but close to the best Northern Michigan attractions, small towns, and beaches only 15 minutes away. The large front deck is tucked into thick and secluded woods. The back deck overlooks beautiful meadows and hills. Our guests can't resist taking family walks up and down this road. It's beautiful and nature is abundant - it isn't called Pleasantview Rd for nothing! The only close neighbors for miles are friends and family and its been that way for as long as we can remember. Many of the fields near by are still farmed by us. A school house more than 100 years old used to sit on this property. Our relatives and neighbors all attended that school so the property has a long family history.

Inside is a large family dining table made of pine and a spacious kitchen with all modern appliances. We absolutely love family cookouts here and the outdoor charcoal grill makes for delicious meals. Jurek's Meat and Grocery, a short walk away, has the best meats in Northern Michigan for all your cooking needs.

On the main floor the lodge has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The living room has comfortable and spacious seating and a warm fireplace. On each side of the living room are sliding glass doors for easy access to the balcony for the great view, fresh air, and starry nights. One floor up is the loft with a bed.

The lower level has lots of seating as well with many large sofas. There are 2 bedrooms down here, a full bathroom, an exercise room, entertainment area with a 50" flat screen, and a laundry room.

Bathroom 1 - Large jacuzzi tub with spacious stand in ceramic/glass shower.

Bathroom 2 - Large shower/tub combination and cathedral ceilings.

Luxurious cabin in beautiful, private setting

  • 5 of 5

Amazing attention to detail and comfort in this luxurious cabin that is situated in a beautiful, private setting! Clean, modern, comfortable and convenient to up-north fun.

We appreciated the free firewood and kindling, laundry detergent, dish detergent, and the large dining table that accommodated two families. Plus there were fresh baked cookies upon our arrival, which the kids loved! This is an outstanding property with an attentive and friendly host. Top-notch everything!

What a great home for a relaxing vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The place was super clean and very spacious. My party of 7 fit into all 5 rooms nicely. There’s a single room with two small beds for kids even.

This place had a beautiful view and not to mention all the necessities that a hotel doesn’t have.

A fridge



Fire pit and fire pit kit

The caretakers left brochures as well

I was also pleasantly surprised with a cake on the table when we entered. It said Happy Birthday James!

The personal touches like that always make it a memorable vacation. There’s almost nothing that I found wrong with the place. The air was just right for the hot days that we were there and the cable and internet worked just fine too.

We were only there from Friday morning until Monday afternoon but we will definitely return in a year or two! One of the best places I’ve ever staid at!

The caretakers james and Laura (brother and sister) are very friendly and made it clear that if we needed anything, to just ask. I got many recommendations on things to do and they were very helpful.

All around a great experience. You won’t be sorry for choosing this place as your getaway home I know that much! =]

There’s also a restaurant near by called the “Moose Jaw junction” ... talk about great food! The manager there was awesome.

Just all around a fun getaway and lots of wildlife and deer.

Thanks for he great memories!!

One word.....GREAT

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation was great....Great house with so much space inside and out to be together or do your own thing. Great kitchen where we ate together and played games at the large table. Big yard for lawn games and marshmallows around a fire. Everything provided from extra towels to yummy welcome cookies. Friendly quick response to our questions. Great location to Petosky. Provided information about the area. We had a Great family reunion.

Beautiful sunset view from this lovely lodge

  • 5 of 5

At first glance, this huge lodge is breathtaking. The second thing you notice is that it is extremely clean and very comfortable. There was more than enough room for our group of friends. The big kitchen and large table were perfect for our enjoyable shared meals.

The lodge is conveniently located close to the communities we wanted to visit, as well as to the Little Traverse Wheelway for our cycling trips.

And did I mention the sunset view from the deck that runs the full length of the lodge?

The caretaker was very attentive and contacted us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. We'll be returning.
