About Bob Ekman
Karen and Bob Ekman now of Brentwood, TN designed (took 12 years) and built Grass Lake Lodge in 2009. Building this 5,000 SF lodge and 1,000 SF Carriage House was a "labor of love" for both of them. They have three adult children, Kelly, Brad and Kyle and two amazing dogs...Dude and Harley. Karen is an Interior Designer and you will see that throughout the property. Bob is a 37 year veteran of the hospitality and music industries, loves the outdoors and works hard to make Grass Lake Lodge a one of a kind indoor and outdoor experience. Bob & Karen know what is takes to make our Grass Lake Lodge guests happy!
Bob Ekman purchased this Lodge in 2009
Why Bob Ekman chose Big Rapids
Grass Lake Lodge is a hidden gem...a one of a kind lodge loaded with amenities, views and wide open spaces. The views are breathtaking and changes every day. Where can one see views of two lakes at the same time? Grass Lake and Townline Lake. Although the Lodge has ample beds, a larger group can expand into our newly added Carriage House. Grass Lake Lodge is a great value for a family, couples, corporate retreats or groups from Ferris State University. You will want to return again and again! Our guest reviews are close to perfect.
What makes this Lodge unique
You just cannot go wrong with this Lodge rental experience. You will want to come back again and again. Private Lake plus over 2 miles of your own groomed trails. Great fishing...Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Crappie and Panfish. There is a channel leading to Townline Lake and there is a canoe included. Outdoor bar (Grass Lake Tavern), two fire pits, horse shoes, basketball hoop, lawn games, pool table, ping pong, shuffle board, darts and putting green. Amazing music system throughout the property including 6 outdoor speakers. Hike, snow shoe or cross country ski on over 2 miles of trails. Bob & Karen recently added the use of The Carriage House with an additional bedroom, kitchen, living with pull-out couch plus dining area and a private deck with amazing views of both lakes. The Carriage House is rented separately after booking the main lodge. If you have a small family group or over 10 people, it is ideal! Average review is 5 of 5 stars on VRBO!
