Garland Lodge and Resort – Lewiston Michigan

French Villa Lodge Wow Garland! It had been many years since we last visited this incredible oasis nestled in the pristine forest just outside Lewiston Michigan, USA. In one word …. Impressive!

Our incredible host this trip was Mr. Aaron Gentry who personally escorted our team throughout the property while filling us in on all the special improvements that have been made to Garland since our last visit some 8 years ago.

Today’s wonderful version of Garland maintains the traditions and ambiance of the past but more importantly has really stepped up their game to compete with the best world class resorts in Northern Michigan.

You name a special comfort you would like to have and Garland has it in a major way. The beautiful rustic and private cabins and the main lodge rooms are still available but just wait til you see what they have added.

French Country Villas are beckoning you. One simply cannot comprehend how over-the-top these accommodations are until actually viewing them. Huge post and beam rooms and bedrooms with the best beds that money can buy. Fireplaces for those cooler evenings and every villa has its own BBQ, hot tub and pool table. Fully supplied kitchens with granite countertops and top of the line cutlery, dishes, cookware and utensils. Everything a golf group needs to have a first class …world class golf getaway.

If cooking is not your thing fear not. The Tamarack Dining Room and the Antler’s Bar and Grill await. Dining on the outstanding patio beside Antler’s is a perfect place to have that after round drink. The service and the people at Garland are terrific. The food is outstanding and the surroundings unique in all of golf. Ask to see the monthly food calendar where there’s a special cooked up 6 days a week or order off the menu 7 days a week. The choice is yours.

Garland specializes in creating the perfect golf experience for groups (large or small), couples and ladies only outings. A great practice putting green and 4 beautifully maintained championship golf courses with teeing areas to suit all levels of ability await. Whether you play Fountains, Monarch, Reflections or Swampfire, you will be sure to see all types of wildlife. Deer, eagles, turtles and many others live in this wonderful place. The best club in your bag when you play might well be your camera so be prepared.

Let us not forget that Garland is also a winter wonderland destination as well. Many winter activities are also the order of the day at beautiful Garland USA.

Snowmobiling, Nordic Skiing, Ice Fishing and Sleigh Rides are all part of the winter offerings of this amazing place.
