Mark Hendricks is a fabulous guide who truly loves what he does. He took great care of us, always taking care of our 'lost flys' and tangled lines. He knows the river and has a beautiful boat. I look forward to the next trip I will enjoy with Mark. Lunch at the lodge after the trip was great! They have... More

For any fly fisher or nature lover this lodge is ideal. World class river right outside your door, great service and the chef/cooks are great. Would love to visit again. Knowledgeable fly shop/guides and wonderful assortment of rental equipment.

This little gem is awesome. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Loved all the outdoor seating along the river. Pet Friendly!!! The little restaurant had a nice selection and the food was very good. Will be back.

My wife and I stayed in the Brown Trout Suite which had two bedrooms and a living room. There was a TV with cable and a mini fridge and a wood firelplace. There were also two sinks which was handy. There are wader hangers outside the front door and rod holders inside the back door which opens right onto the... More

Stayed here for the weekend while enjoying a 5 hour paddle with about 20 other members of the Michigan Chapter of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. The Lodge is on the AuSable River, one of the most popular Rivers in the state of Michigan. Never knew this Lodge existed. But I soon learned, the real outdoor lovers are very aware... More

Understand, this is a motel in which you plan to sleep and shower, before/after a long day fishing or hunting. That said, the rooms are spacious (though the bathrooms are not!) and clean. It's a good thing you likely brought a cooler, because there is no mini fridge. But, the owners invite you into the kitchen for ice. Two entry... More

My boyfriend & I stayed during the July 4th holiday this year. It's under new ownership & the owners are incredibly friendly. If you're in to fly fishing, it's a wonderful place & even if you're not! The rooms are cute & understated...why bother with going over the top on room amenities & fluff when you have a beautiful view... More

My Husband is a fly fisherman and we have a home down the road from them. One thing people in the area do not realize is that you can call and make reservations to dine in their restaurant, which by the way is top notch! I have NEVER had a bad meal there and their crab legs are to die... More

Gates Au Sable Lodge is a most excellent venue on the banks of the Au Sable about 10 minutes east of Grayling, MI. It is well located to explore the North and South Branches of the river. Accommodations are simple, but clean and appropriate to the sport. Rooms open out to a river view and it only a few steps... More
