Welcome to the Drettmann Ranch!
Come and stay with us to share and experience an unforgettable adventure. We invite you to make yourself at home for a truly memorable trip. Our goal is to provide a limited number of guests each year with a high quality, exclusive vacation.
The Drettmann Ranch was founded over twenty years ago, and today is located on just less than 1,000 acres in beautiful Northwest Michigan. It is a diverse piece of land that incorporates several different ecosystems. From the high ground with rolling hardwood forest, to the thick waterlogged cedar swamp, you will experience a landscape that will put you up close and personal with Mother Nature. Each year, we look forward to providing guests the opportunity to enjoy our luxurious lodge while exploring the Ranch as well as the surrounding villages and towns. This area of Northern Michigan has an endless number of things to do, but often we find people enjoy the privacy and relaxing nature of the Ranch and never wish to leave. The choice is yours! The Drettmann Ranch welcomes you to stay with us and experience an unforgettable trip. You will have a truly memorable time whether it is a family vacation or a couple’s getaway.
Luxurious accommodations await you at the Drettmann Ranch. We pride ourselves on providing a quality experience, and this is evident in our lodging. To suit your needs you choose to stay at The Main Lodge, The Cabin or our newest additions.
The ranch is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Michigan. The town was named “Bellaire” meaning beautiful air, due to the clearness and purity of the atmosphere. You will experience this on your trip to northwest Michigan. One of our principal goals is to preserve the property and manage its abundant natural resources. Our hope is for The Ranch to be a refuge for future generations to enjoy this pristine and undeveloped land. As a working ranch, we oversee and work diligently to manage several projects that maintain the property, including (but not limited to):
Timber Stand improvement
Wildlife Habitat improvement
Native Plant projects
Whitetail Herd Genetic management
Establishment of Grouse habitat
Renovations to Create Additional Lodging
Trout Stream improvements
Morel Mushroom Management
And much more on the way!
Come and stay with us and see all we are doing.
The Main Lodge
Once the electric gate closes behind you, you will have complete privacy and the ranch will be yours for the duration of your stay. Enjoy the comfort of the 2400 sq. ft lodge along with its beautifully landscaped surroundings and the wildlife that reside within the parameters. The lodge is the main gathering place to eat, sleep and share your experience with friends and family. The interior of the lodge exemplifies a maximum comfort experience. The open, spacious Great Room decor is accented with many memories of previous adventures from the ranch as well as from all over North America. The master suite is comfortably furnished with a king bed and a private bath. The second suite has a queen bed as well as a private bath. The other two guest rooms have queen size beds and share a full bath. All the beds have Comphy Sheets to help you sleep after a long day of adventures. There is a separate heated building just outside to store all your gear and toys. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils and cookware you would need to prepare a family barbecue or gourmet meal. We can also arrange for a private chef or catered meal if you choose to do so. Our main lodge is located within the Ranch enclosure, so you and your guests can enjoy the privacy that only a few guests will experience every year.
We also have the cabin available for people who may require additional lodging. This has two queen bedrooms and a large loft area with four twin beds. A gorgeous stone fireplace is the highlight of the main living area, and it also has a fully stocked kitchen. The cabin is located just beyond the Ranch’s enclosure, making it convenient for guests who may wish to leave the compound frequently to visit many of the area attractions, including Lake Bellaire, Torch Lake, and several quaint up north villages.
