Overall, the stay at Rodgers Roost was very relaxing and peaceful. Larry and Mary were very accommodating. While the breakfasts were all great, the pancakes were the best we have ever had.
My husband and I spent two nights with Mary and Larry. They were wonderful hosts! The breakfasts they prepared together for us were wonderful. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. The areas of the house we had access to were warn and inviting. The accommodations were perfect for our needs! My only regret was not stressing to my husband that we were on Big Beat Lake! He didn't bring a fishing pole!! And we could SEE fish from the dock! And to make matters worse (for me), Larry had a row boat and a paddle boat that we could have used!! We will definitely bring poles next time!!! Penny
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!
