If camping used to be your thing, but roughing it has lost its appeal, Otter Lodge She-La Shed is the place for you!!! It is a perfect woodland get-away for two. You will be reluctant to leave the property once you arrive, and you will be eager to return after a day exploring the many "Up North" destinations.

Otter Lodge She-La Shed is the third vacation rental of Otter Lodge Inn, LLC.

The space
She-La Shed has been converted into a tiny house and we welcomed our first guests mid-July, 2021. The 240 sq. ft. Shed has a kitchen with a small fridge, countertop oven and electric burners. The only enclosed room is the half bath. The rest of the open space has two twin beds and a place for reading, conversation or to enjoy a movie. The outdoor shower is private and enclosed, only 4 steps across the front porch and was one of the favorite features commented upon by our 2021 guests.

Although you can dine in, you will likely choose to eat alfresco or sip your morning coffee on the 144 sq. ft. screened in porch. The She-La Shed fire pit will be a favorite evening spot to chat about your day and to plan your next adventure.

Where you’ll be

Kalkaska, Michigan, United States

Our "neighborhood" is unique in that we are a limited number of homes in the Pere Marquette State Forest where "A River Runs Through It" and we are completely surrounded by state land and wild life.

We are situated on 9 wooded acres on the banks of the north branch of the Boardman River, an ideal location for those looking to enjoy the many tourist destinations that Up North Michigan has to offer and for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a peaceful retreat.

ATTN HIKERS- In 2019 we were thrilled when The North Country Hiking Trail was extended to our area. In fact, the trail can be accessed directly off the back of our property or by walking 1/4 mile down our road and stepping on. It is a great addition and many of our guests are enjoying it.

I live a very casual lifestyle. I am active and easy going and I need space to roam, usually with a Labrador at my side. Anyone choosing to stay at our rental properties will find exactly that. Our Otter Lodge Inn in Kalkaska, Michigan is surrounded by thousands of acres in the Pere Marquette Forest with the Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, the Boardman River, running through it. In South Carolina we have another home where I roam miles of pristine beaches on Edisto Island at Edisto Beach. This sweet island is one of the few barrier islands remaining that has resisted commercialization. Only 40 minutes south of beautiful and historic Charleston, our Edisto Island home, Otter Escape, is also available for your rental pleasure.

During your stay

We live on the property along with our black lab, Girlie. We love getting to know our guests but also respect their privacy. We are always available by text or phone, but if we are out in the yard feel free to strike up a conversation.
