Tyler's Caribou Lake Lodge

This property is the perfect place to stay while you enjoy northern Michigan. The owners provided everything you could think of making it truly your home away from home. We are senior citizens so we enjoyed a day trip each day and loved coming back to enjoy the lake, sunsets and bonfires. We enjoyed touring Drummond Island; the Soo Locks; shopping; casino in Hessel and simply walking the shoreline with our dog in search of pretty rocks. The description does not do this property is all of that and will not be disappointed. Would highly recommend for families of all ages. The owner extremely generous and most helpful. An outstanding rental!

Family Vacation - August 2014

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cabin, it worked great for all of us to get together and enjoy a few days on the lake. We were able to bring over my Father in Law's boat and keep it at the dock so we had fun fishing and tubing on the lake as well. The kids loved making smores at the fire pit and running around the yard. It was also great to have laundry facilities with the kids. It was close to DeTour Village so we were able to make quick trips for anything we forgot at the grocery store. We hope to have an opportunity to stay there again in the future!

Great time had by all at Tyler's Lodge!
All the comforts of home on beautiful
Caribou Lake. The Lodge's location is
perfect. We were only minutes from
our hunting land, restaurants, grocery
store and Drummond Island. The pinball
tournaments were a hoot! We look forward to
staying again real soon.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We came up to close our family cabin, but we couldn't all fit in one place. Other family members have used the Tylers' Place in the past, and having been here before, we couldn't wait! The place is just beautiful and very well cared for. A home away from home with all the amenities you could imagine. Pet friendly, kid friendly, people friendly, and family friendly! We were very comfortable, and none of us wanted to leave! Very clean and very cozy. We would most definitely stay there again, and we look forward to it!

We had a very wonderful experience at Tylers Caribou Lake Lodge.The lodge itself is very comfortable and homey feeling with an abundance of space for large families (there were 7 of us).Even though we didn't bring our dog the lodge and yard appear to be very pet friendly.The lake is beautiful and quite warm for swimming.We brought our boat and there is a very nice dock to tie up to and a good DNR launch site only a half mile from the lodge.The lodge had everything we needed for cooking,eating,and sleeping.All we brought were ourselves and food.We are planning on trying to go back to the lodge in the future and would highly recommend it to our friends and family.

A beautiful place for a Fall vacation

  • 4 of 5
From previous experience on Caribou Lake, we know there is great fishing here. Acold front, rain and high pressure sitting overhead, made for a disappointing fising trip but this is a great place for a Fall leaf change vacation, despite unpredictable weather.
During the cold, rainy days we watched little birds (and a fox squirrel) in the bird feeder, played pinball - what memories that brought back, put together a couple of jigsaw puzzles and just relaxed!
The house was perfect for the 2 of us AND a weekend visit from our daughter, son in law and 2 grandsons.
Everything we needed was there - and more. The owners and locals were concerned and responsive to our special request for a different boat.
While Detour Village is limited in activities Caribou Lake is within a day trip of Sault Ste. Marie, Taquahmenon Falls and Mackinaw Island.
For the more outdoor adventureous, nearby Drummond Island, and numerous Nature Conservancey areas are great for hiking.
Don't miss the food at Raber Bay Bar or the perch at Goetzville.
