My husband and son both had the fried rice this past weekend. Chicken and Beef. They both said it was fantastic and hope it remains on the menu. I can’t wait to try it!!!

Fantastic. Our kids love to bike to beach house for ice cream!

Ordered the Szechaun Thistle fried rice with Chicken this past week for a take out. The flavors were phenomenal! I called the chef and complimented him on this meal. Delicious! Yum 😋

Love your place! Can’t wait to get back!

Looking for ducks and Trophy Room pizza. 🍕

The lodge sure does love bears. And bears love it apparently. 🙂

I think there will be alot of wildlife encounters this summer. Animals have gotten use to going where humans would normally be, but aren't atm because of quarantine.

When was this sighting?

Yay. Was hoping to keep our reservations memorial weekend.

WoW, can you imagine skiing next to him... would love it... once in a life time... ❤️

So awesome! Yogi bear 🐻 has come to visit! 🥰

We took over their home lands....their taking it back.❤❤

We live on the other side of Deer Lake and there has been a problem with a bear getting into our trash too!

We have one wandering our neighborhood too. I worry about our critters, we will he having calves soon.

I hope when people start coming back to these areas they are considerate to the animals.

Because of all the flood waters in michigan there will be more wildlife walking the streets.

How are they going to discourage the bears from hanging about before people come there with kids and pets?

Gretchen just extended our lock down to June 12😢

YIKES! Seems like humans might be invading they're territory after this break from stay home. BE CAREFUL

He is making the rounds all over the Boyne neighborhood.

You don't have to go to the Smokie Mountains to see a bear!!!

Hope that the humans chase the Bears AWAY ....

Looks like the bear has a tag on him. So the dnr knows of his wares about s

Guess he'll have to grin and"bear" it won't he

I guess he's looking for Goldilocks!

Stay at home has been extended?

Pretty Bear, but from far away!

"I want to come inside, eat your porridge, sit in your chair, and rest on your bed."

Wonder ifore will show up because of all the flooding
