Welcome to Otter Lodge, a wilderness Tipi. This Tipi is surrounded by a pristine trout stream and sounds of diverse native wildlife. Located in a beautiful valley, the Otter Lodge is the perfect getaway to connect with your most natural self. Take a dip in the stream, enjoy the noises of nearby creatures, and warm up with a night time fire in the comfort of an artistic and rustic shelter. The exterior design of the Tipi was painted by a diversity of guests who have stayed on the property and generously lent a helping hand to this project.
The Tipi sleeps 5 people. There is bedding, pillows, a fire pit, and artistic touches throughout. The fire must be kept low, and we kindly ask that no dogs enter the Tipi, given the proximity to the stream and natural debris.

What a wonderful host & experience!
My two days of nature and solitude in the tipi were incredible, and just what I was looking for! I can’t wait to book another trip. The tipi was cozy and warm with the sound of the trout creek just outside and the crackling fire within. I thoroughly enjoyed the hiking trails on and around the property, as well as his inspiring art and world wide collections in his home. Rob went above and beyond to make it a wonderful experience, thank you again!!
Robert is a super host; nice, warm and a true artist , totally recommend the experience, one of the coziest and cutest places I have ever been!
We stayed at the Tipi , we set the fire inside which was very fun
Our stay was fantastic! Robert was an amazing host and our stay in the Otter Lodge Wilderness Tipi was so fun. We explored his wonderful library and took a nature hike while we were there. We would highly recommend this place!
Beautiful stay, fantastic host
My boyfriend and I spent one night in Rob's rustic riverside tipi. Enjoying a campfire inside the dwelling and falling asleep to the sounds of the stream was everything I could have hoped for. Rob was extremely accommodating and helpful. He invited us right into his incredible home and showed us around. There are more accommodations than I even expected from reading the listing. We will definitely be back to explore the property more!
We had the most amazing time!!!! The property is truly amazing, from the art studio, butterfly garden, stream that you can play in, greenhouse, and even the bathrooms are top notch...i could not have found a more magical place!! The main house is also incredible, with art and books, and a stunning collection of just about everything... the kitchen also has everything you could need. I had fun with the chickens, and just exploring the trail... their is a beach dish the way maybe 5 min, and lake Michigan was about an hour..... we will be back
Rob was an incredible host...
Disconnected from the world!
I was so lucky to have found this place. I wanted to disconnect from reality for a few days and enjoy everything nature had to offer. I got more than I could have ever imagined. Robert and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I had everything that I needed.
Hiking through the woods on his property is absolutely beautiful and all the sounds at night while sitting by the fire was just so relaxing. The tipi is unbelievable and so much fun staying in. I can’t say enough about Roberts place. I will definitely become a regular to the Tipi.
