Amazing spot on the Boardman
Everything about the property is perfect. The owners were great and met us at check in. They walked us through the whole property and even gave us the history, which we really appreciated. The house is well apportioned and suited our needs beyond expectations. The location is second to none, literally right on the Boardman. There are several great holes that should be full of Brookies come spring right in front of the property. We’ve already booked our stay for next year.

Jason and Nicole were great! They met me there and walked me through what was offered there. The lodge is even better than the pictures. Everyone who stayed there loved it. The outdoor experience was perfect. Between the Boardman River just feet away and the bonfires we had. I think everyone could agree that this was one of the best places we stayed for a family get together. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Loved the location. Very relaxing. Highly recommend. Would stay again.
Place was extremely clean and we'll decorated. Has a very traditional cabin feel to it (which is a good thing). It's nice sitting around a campfire or fireplace at night and watching the river in the morning with a cup of tea. The host was extremely nice and even left a gift box. The only suggestion I would have is be mindful of the door to the loft. It's easy to lock yourself out of the room. No fault of the owner, just something to be aware of as there isn't a key to unlock it on site. Highly recommend this home!

Good morning Jason. We will be leaving this morning...dont want to! What a beautiful place! This is for sure a very special home. Thank you for the stay...so relaxing, clean, the amenities, and the grounds are unbelievable! Many walks (even with the wild weather) makes this stay even more relaxing. And also thank you for the Cherry Republic box and wine. Sooo very special, all of it! Take care and it was a privilege staying here!

Beautiful riverside retreat
My husband and I spent a long 4 day weekend with our dog at this wonderful cabin. It was decorated beautifully, and came fully supplied with toiletries, linens, kitchenware etc. The owners, Jason & Nicole, met us at the cabin and gave us a brief yet thorough tour of the property and it’s amenities. The property site is in a huge clearing of the woods, set upon the bank of the Boardman River. We spent many hours sitting in chairs by the riverside, just relaxing and watching/listening to the water flow. It was exactly what we needed! We didn’t have a bonfire outside, but enjoyed a crackling fire inside every night. Multiple cords of wood were already cut and waiting for us. The cabin is amazing. The bed was so comfortable, and the walk-in shower was huge! The drive into Traverse City wasn't’ t too far, and we enjoyed a great meal at Red Ginger. Another night we went to dinner at LochenHeath golf club’s restaurant, where our friend Chef Eric Nittolo whips up a great menu. We also ate at two places close to the cabin that the owners recommended- McGee’s & Peegeeo’s. Both places were delicious. We loved this rental, and highly recommend it! We were excited to be the first renters, and hope to experience many more tranquil weekends at the Shadowland River Lodge.
