A Refuge for the weary!

We just needed a quiet place to get away & relax, and this place proved to be perfect for us. We have no complaints. Friendly hosts, wonderful food, very clean, and beautiful gardens! We would definitely come back! Tom & Carol Lamb

3 night stay at silent sport lodge

We stayed at Silent Sport Lodge for 3 nights while attending a wedding in north Michigan. It was SO wonderful. Rhonda and John make you feel; like family as soon as you check in. It is a beautiful property, relaxing and serene. You can see the pride they take in their home and business. The breakfasts are to die for. We can not rave enough and encourage anyone going to north MI to check out this lovely B&B. We even had a lesson on fly fishing from John and then he took us fishing. We caught a bunch. John did have to help us constantly. (Thanks John).We will be back.

2nd Stay - Even better than 1st

We just enjoyed our second anniversary get away at Silent Sport. What a great place to relax and unwind. John and Rhonda had excellent suggestions for day trips seeing some of the most beautiful sites Michigan has to offer. Breakfast is always delicious. Ending the day around the camp fire has been one of our favorite things about Silent Sport. Already looking for a reason to go back again.

A+

My husband and I spent a long weekend at Silent Sport Lodge and were pleasantly surprised as we had never stayed at a B&B and didn't know what to expect. John and Rhonda were so personalble it felt as if we were staying with old friends. The breakfasts were every bit as delicious as the previous reveiws stated. Yes, we will be back!

A little piece of heaven

THE most beautiful, not so rustic rustic, B&B I've ever stayed at. I was stunned that it is 18 years old. It feels like it was built yesterday. Clean to a fault, roomy, yet very private. The rooms are spectacular as was the food, the grounds (30 + acres), the wildlife and, of course, the hosts. John & Rhonda clearly have a lot to be proud of and warmly share their preserve. I felt much less like a paying guest at their inn than a new found friend joining them at home. I WILL be back.

1st Time B&B Romantic

This was our first get a way in 15 years. We've been busy and stressed.This was the perfect place for us. A peaceful setting with the most wonderful hosts.Sitting by the river, just the two of us...listening to the ripple of the water and the sound of birds...Much more than I expected. Five stars plus.

Peaceful & Relaxing!

Unbelievably beautiful log B&B nestled away in the woods! John and Ronda are so welcoming & their breakfasts (which they prepared as a team) were delicious! If you are looking for a peaceful get-away this is it! I especially enjoyed our walk to the river and relaxing in the sunroom! Loved everything about the weekend!

Gorgeous, tranquil, delicious :)

This is an absolutely gorgeous B&B, nestled in a quiet, peaceful, wooded setting. We stayed in the Cedar Room, and the jacuzzi tub was a wonderful bonus! The surroundings are amazing, and provide the perfect atmosphere for a get-away. The homemade breakfast was out of this world, made with fresh eggs, fresh picked veggies/herbs, and an amazing homemade cherry jam. This was the best deal around!

InnSide Tip - Plan time to relax.
This should be a destination, not just a stop along the way. Make sure you give yourself enough time to spend plenty of time outside. The pond and peaceful chairs by the river make this even more worth it!!

Great place year around; romantic 2

We've had the pleasure of staying at Silent Sport Lodge over the past few years. The lodge is lovely, rooms are quite comfortable and the John and Rhonda couldn't be better hosts! They know the area well and are great at suggesting things to do. They also offer packages for those looking for a little romance, pampering or even crafts like making your own snowshoes! In the spring, summer and fall you are close to great hiking and biking trails as well as rivers for fishing and kayaking. In the winter, you can snowshoe or cross country ski on the property or nearby. Don't forget to check out the beaver dam and hut.
