AuSable View Lodge

Pour yourself a cup of coffee, grab a seat on the deck, and take in the beauty of a sunrise lighting the AuSable Valley. Surrounded by 60 acres of woods, the Ausable View Lodge is a great place to spend time with friends and family, as well as enjoy the great outdoors. Looking for something unique and cozy? Well we've got it! From the one-of-a-kind log structure of the Lodge to the spectacular view of the AuSable Valley. The Lodge is designed to accommodate large groups and will sleep up to 28 of your guests. All are sure to have a once in a lifetime experience they will never forget. It is the perfect setting for you and your spouse, or for large reunions, receptions, retreats, groups, parties or meetings.

We strive to make a warm and inviting family friendly atmosphere for our guests. While still supplying that 'log cabin feeling', we've furnished the Lodge with all the modern amenities to help your family and friends feel right at home. We believe we provide an optimal getaway experience by presenting our guests with seclusion while still being minutes from many recreational activities

Dale and Sandy Handrich, owners and operators of the AuSable View Lodge, are bringing something to North East Michigan that will help others as well. Many of the furnishings are locally made and can be purchased.
