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.

We were so pleased with Rodgers Roost! Larry & Mary were fantastic! The food was phenomenal and the view of Big Bear Lake was exquisite. We can't wait to come back!

Escape to paradise

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.
