About Bob Ekman
Karen and Bob Ekman now of Brentwood, TN designed (took 12 years) and built Grass Lake Lodge in 2009 with the amazing efforts of local builder John Iltis of Iltis Construction. 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! To date, we have had 5 or 5 Review Scores except one. Check out what others had to say!
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...from your living room? Grass Lake and Townline Lake. Although the Lodge has ample beds, a larger group can expand into our Carriage House with its own amazing views and private deck. Grass Lake Lodge is a great value for families, couples, corporate retreats or groups from Ferris State University. You will want to return again and again! Our guest reviews are close to perfect. Starting in 2022, Grass Lake Lodge guests will be able to purchase on-premise massages, private chef experiences, bartender services, grocery and/or beverage pick-up, delivery and placement, property tours on our new UTV, S'more packages, firewood bundles, Specialty Jams by Carolyn and trolling motor rental.
What makes this Lodge unique
You just cannot go wrong with the Grass Lake Lodge experience. You will want to come back again and again. Many already have in just over two years of sharing Grass Lake Lodge. 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. Try it if you dare. 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 8 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 Lodge. If you have a small family group of over 10 people, it is ideal! Average review is 4.9 of 5 stars on VRBO! Check out "GLL Extras" for 2022! On-premise massages, private chef experience, bartender services, grocery/beverage pick-up, delivery and placement, property tours on new UTV, S'Mores packages, firewood bundles, Grass Lake Specialty Jams and trolling motor rental.
