A Fishing Lodge Like No Other.

Each of our 12 rooms and 2 suites is decorated in its own unique style that represents a part of northern Michigan history, or one of the many activities enjoyed by our guests, such as fly-fishing, canoeing, kayaking and upland hunting. Guest room interiors are simple, relaxing and inviting – as they were originally designed to be in the early 1900’s.

Breakfast is served every morning in the dining room. Seasonal and classic favorites are served – however, we are able to accommodate special requests with ingredients found in our pantry.

Guests may purchase snacks and beverages at the NBOC fly shop or bring a cooler filled with their own.

The lodge is home to hundreds of fly fishing and sporting books for your reading enjoyment. Sit back and relax with a book or join in on a friendly conversation with other guests about the catch of the day.

The large screened-in porch on the second level provides the sites and sounds of a blue-ribbon trout stream. It’s a perfect setting for hosting small gatherings for an intimate look at the natural world.

Lower-level porches provide you with the opportunity to take in the beauty along the banks of the river and appreciate a cool breeze from a porch swing. Also a great place to tie flies for your next adventure, read a book or converse with other guests.

Our large wader room allows you to hang and dry all of your gear from the day. Benches make getting dressed or out of your gear easy.
