Nestled within the Manistee-Huron National forest in the heart of North West Michigan’s Blue Ribbon Trout Stream country, North Rivers Lodge is situated on over a quarter-mile of the wild and scenic Little Manistee, or “Little River” to the locals and affectionately known as “The Little Man” to the angler.
The classic architecture and rustic charm of our early 20th Century cedar log cabins hearken back to a simpler time when sportsmen would retreat to Michigan’s northwoods and rivers to seek solitude through wilderness getaways to fish, hunt and explore.
Today, the tradition continues as a destination for both families and sportsmen for relaxation and recreation.
Trails are accessible directly from the lodge, so no need to trailer up and drive to the trailheads.
Golf, water skiing, shopping or just exploring are all within a short drive of the lodge.
Ice fishing, downhill skiing and sledding are all just a short drive from the lodge.
