We encourage guests to bring their own recreation vehicles and watercraft along to NettieBay Lodge. The resort is close to well-kept snowmobile/ATV trails, and extra dock space is available for boats. Contact us for information about pontoon and fishing rentals.

Northern Michigan is a wonderful place to vacation year-round, with plenty to do and see in any season. You’ll love the nature trails, the vast starry sky, and the quietude of the great outdoors.

The frogs at NettieBay Lodge are numerous and the campfire was delightful. Frog catching with Alicia was so fun and it provided us with laughs to last a long time. All the Great Blue Herons will leave memories that will last even longer! Departing is never easy, but we’ll be back next year! — Emily
