The Jolli Lodge is an historic spot with room and cabin rentals on Lake Michigan. Their beautiful location feels like an old-time summer camp and their loyal and returning clientele speak for the atmosphere and experience. The owners host potlucks and other group events that keep people coming back year after year. Much of the original building is still as it was in the 1950s when the original residence became a lodge. This is a great place for a low-key family vacation in northern Michigan. Close to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leland, Suttons Bay and Traverse City.

We were able to get a nice two room cottage for a few days. The location is great, beautiful setting. We enjoyed our time there. Owner Greg was hospitable and the lodge had great atmosphere. We wished we had known about the beach spot at Good Harbor Beach a mile south of the Lodge. Close to Leeland and Sleeping Bear Dunes. We would stat there again, best wishes to Greg and his family.

I loved it. Stayed in the room where Jim Harrison wrote Legends of the Fall. Homey ambiance with large porch for socializing with other guests, or just reading. Swimming was great except for a few rocks to cross before you get to the sandbar.

I was invited by friends to come up to the Jolli Lodge. I really enjoyed the place. It was great for kids. It had kayaks, a zip line, bikes, shuffle board etc. The kids had a great time. The place itself is a little dated but it adds character to the place. It clean, has great views and will great great memories if you go.
