Located directly on Welch Creek and connected to Klieber Pond, Leisure Lodge is the perfect summer vacation destination. Spend your days relaxing in a hammock, swimming, kayaking or fishing off the dock. Not only does the property have marked off trails for visitors, you’re also in close proximity to state trails all over. While hiking is a must, many of these trails are wide enough for you to bring an ATV. If you want to try and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife, there are deer blinds throughout the property that offer a great vantage point. Set off to the side, there is the perfect place for that evening campfire hangout, with available firewood courtesy of Leisure Lodge, for any night.
For winter activities on the property, the wide-open mostly flat trails are great for cross country skiing or snowmobiling. This would also be a great place for any ice fisher. If you’re just looking to relax with the scenery of a winter wonderland, you can spend your time curled up next to the fireplace with a good book.
Day Trips for Everyone
Not only is there enough space to spend your entire weekend getaway on the property, but Leisure Lodge is far enough North in Michigan's lower peninsula that there are plenty of exciting day trips to take.
Mackinaw Island- While there is a debate on whether this gorgeous island is part of the Upper or Lower Peninsula of Michigan, this tourist destination is a must for any history buff or sweet toothed visitor.
Oswald’s Bear Ranch in Newberry, MI- Take a look at the U. P’s black bear population at this sanctuary where bears are known to be so happy, some will actually climb INTO the sanctuary to begin their best fed lives. After walking the grounds to view the adult bears, there is a small fee to meet, pet, and get a picture with their black bear cubs.
Tahquamenon Falls State Park- If you’re wanting a day hike, visit the two ginormous “root beer” like waterfalls that make up Tahquamenon Falls State Park.
