Up North Getaway for large get together's or FISHING GROUPS!
average rating of 4.6 based on 10 reviews

Great for large group, amenities we're convenient, lots of space to gather inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

The multiple bedrooms were a plus for our group of 11 with 2 full baths. Lots of space to gather with open floor plan in TV and dining area. The Home Away App shared everything that we needed during the rental period. The amenities including WiFi, Netflix, large kitchen and bedding/towels was a bonus from other rental experiences. I was disappointed about the lack of defined walking trails on the property as the acreage was intriguing to our group. We had beautiful fires thanks to the provided firewood! We played the Huron Breeze course and appreciated their hospitality. Overall, the group enjoyed our trip - thank you for having us!

Owner's Response: Very happy you found your stay comfortable, and the property is well maintained. The location and space certainly are better than many, as your party had nearly 20. We pride ourselves on upkeep, and had just cleaned the carpets prior to your stay. We typically allow a week between carpet cleaning and guests, but was glad to be able to help with your last minute needs for a large place to stay. Thanks again.

Unique Spacious Lodge - Minutes from Rifle River

  • 5 of 5

Place was unique to say the least. Wall mounts were definitely a topic when you entered the room - must be plenty of family history behind them. Rented this spacious lodge for our annual family canoe trip and with 6 bedrooms and 2 baths it was just right for our family of 12. Family room/kitchen had everything you needed and then some. Had some rain but was still able to have bonfires every night along with smores and it's always a plus when the firewood is ready available. Barbequed one night on the gas grill and ordered pizza from down the street - we picked it up but they actually do deliver. Great restaurants in town and the Rifle River and Russel's canoe livery were only minutes away - we opted to rent rafts instead of tubes as it was a little chilly on Saturday morning but we had a great time. There was plenty of parking and a large area for playing our outdoor games - CanJam and Beanbag Toss. There is also another smaller cabin adjacent to the lodge which you can rent if you had a family reunion and needed more space but I do think it would have been a little awkward if somebody was renting it because it is literally right next door which means you wouldn't have the place to yourself and you would be sharing the firepit/property with strangers. I didn't realize this until after the fact but nobody rented it so it had no effect on us. The owner, Mary, was easy to reach and responded quickly to all my emails and provided me with plenty of information regarding the canoe liveries in the area. Although, it seems to be a "Hunter's Paradise", it definitely has many other qualities that makes it a "Unique Place for All".

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind summary of the property. We do communicate with guest in the event others will be staying in the nearby cabin. However it has only happened a time or two, and I will plan to note it on the listing as a thoughtful communication. Thanks again for your nice words and ideas.
