Over 70 years ago, NettieBay Lodge was established to be a place of relaxation, silence and beauty. Tucked away in North East Michigan, you can take that much needed long weekend off or extended furlough in the comfort of our resort. NettieBay Lodge is not only a great place for quiet, restful times, it is also ready to spoil you with activities and learning workshops such as hunting, fishing, split bamboo fly rod making, bird identification workshops, stone masonry workshop, spring turkey hunt, fall grouse/woodcock, whitetail hunting archery, rifle and black powder, cross country trails, and ice fishing on Lake Nettie and so much more.

Our spring season starts with learning vacations, while summer is filled with family fun! Fall begins with outdoor hunting activities.

With sparkling blue lakes and endless skies, NettieBay is close to other great locations in the great state of Michigan. Rogers City, Michigan has a population just under 3,500. The quaint small town is a nice day escape into the city from the lodge. The area is well noted for its seclusion, pristine lakes and streams, and an abundance of wildlife. NettieBay Lodge has established itself as a prime location for bird watching as well. We are only 21 miles from Black Lake Golf Club ranked #44 2011-2012 by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 public golf courses in the U.S. and ranked 13th in Michigan!

Our newly updated rental cabins can house up to 45 people, and are available for extended time and also group discounted rates. Groups can also build their own packages, with or without meals and an activity they would like to enjoy. This is perfect for the many outdoor lovers and retreat groups wanting to spend some time away together. Our cool Michigan temperatures make for beautiful days and nights. Average temperatures during the summer season are in the upper seventies and low eighties.
