We just arrived home from staying with Larry & Mary. The food was delicious and the Stay was wonderful. Very clean and modern. A must stay for the eventful persons. No Disappointments. Out in the sticks, but very nice. Nice people and wonderful food. Luvred
I had never stayed at B&B and was not sure what to expect. The Roost was absolutely beautiful inside and out. The owners were so inviting and made you feel at home. Breakfast was delicious and fresh ingredients was a bonus. The hot tub was so relaxing with a view that was breath taking. I will go back for sure.
My wife and I were longing for a get-away from the quick pace of life before the school year started. Boy did Rodger's Roost deliver! Located right on Big Bear Lake we got plenty of relaxing time, whether it was a ride on the paddle boat, a float on the inner tubes or some fishing time in the rowboat. The innkeepers are very friendly but give you the run of the property like it was your own. Larry didn't disappoint on the breakfasts either. For the price, this place was a very good value for those looking for a change of pace and getting away from big city life.
This is a very nice place run by very nice people. Warm and welcoming, it's almost like staying with old friends but with all the services and privacy of a great hotel. Our room was large, extremely clean and very comfortable. There's plenty to do here, the owners have provided everything you need to relax and enjoy, and go out of their way to accommodate you in any way they can. Breakfasts are delicious, the menu is flexible and the friendly chit chat is a nice way to start the day. The view of the lake can't be beat, and the smell of fresh pine breezing through the windows is a must for any northern michigan experience. We had a real nice time, the only thing I would change about our visit is to have made it longer.
The owners host a breakfast from your personal menu which includes home-made breads, fresh fruit, and local meat. Serenity surrounds their lakefront property and provides an ideal spot to rest & relax & release from your cell phones!
Larry & Mary were very nice hosts of their lovely home on Big bear Lake. The breakfast choices were wonderful. As an added entertainment, we got to see lots of great fireworks on their lawn. We stayed in the nest room.
We had a wonderful 2-night stay with our two young daughters. We stayed in the Nest room; it was very spacious--it was huge. The towels were soft and plush, and everything was clean, very clean. We were encouraged to hang out in the common areas, which were welcoming and also clean. There were several dozen novels and magazines to borrow, cards and board games for the kids. The beach is nice, the lake is wonderful, the owners provide beach towels, and some toys for the kids. Larry is a gracious and friendly host without being over-bearing. The breakfasts were nice; the selection was good. Marty made sure we all got our fill. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time staying at Rodgers Roost. The house and location were beautiful. The lake was crystal clear and perfect for swimming and fishing. Our room was immaculate. Larry and Mary were so welcoming, we felt like we were staying with family. And, breakfast was delicious! Such a relaxing weekend!
Larry and Mary are friendly and make you feel like family. The room was very clean, and tastefully decorated. Waking up to the sound of a loon was an added bonus. The breakfasts, Wow. They give you choices and make it how you ask. And they make much of the food from scratch. This is the first B&B I've ever stayed in and they've set the bar high for any place else. I've stayed in some very nice hotels that did not compare to the atmosphere, energy, and hospitality that Larry, Mary and Betty (the cat) provide. I could go on and on. If you have the opportunity to stay at Rodgers Roost I'm sure you will enjoy your visit. Thank you for letting me and my friend share your home and your hospitality.
From your personally selected breakfast menu to providing daytime recreation and comfortable lodging, you will find this B&B stressing comfort for their guests. The hosts are outstanding and the environment is spacious! We love it here!
Larry and Mary went way our of their way to accommodate us road-weary, soggy bikers, and we were their first bikers. We hope we left as good of an impression on them as they did with us!
I'm so glad we decided to go with a B&B over a hotel for our weekend getaway. My mom and I really enjoyed the beauty of the home and property and the hospiality of Mary and Larry. It was like being home. I intend on returning to the Gaylord area this time next year and will be returning to Rodgers Roost. Great food, comfy bed, beautiful lake, and serene wooded property! 5 stars!
My wife and I don't usually stay at Bed and Breakfasts but by recommendation we thought we would try one. Boy did we get the pick of the litter, this place was amazing! The breakfast was out of this world! We could not have asked for a better host and hostess. Looking forward to watching another Red Wings Hockey game and the Roost. Outstanding!!
