We are focused on providing a relaxed peaceful environment supporting vegetarian, vegan and raw-food travelers.  Located in Unicorland (Yes- it exist !), Pinckney – MI.

Here we are about …


Come and be our guests – let us cook for you. We use fresh, local and organic ingredients whenever possible and our whole food dishes, whether vegetarian, vegan or raw cuisine, are made with you in mind. We specialize in authentic Brazilian and Cajun dishes and will cater to your individual tastes whenever possible. Come dine with us; let us give you a piece of our heart and welcome you to the Lodge-MI.


The world outside can be hectic and demands for your time seem never to stop. You will find peace here. The Lodge is your hidden retreat nestled at the edge of almost 2000 wooded acres in the small village of Pinckney. Walk our grounds, enjoy our paths, and take time to be with yourself. There are no mindless TV’s playing in the background…this time is just for you.
Enjoy its peace.


Our home and world is full of boundless color…We invite you to leave the black and whites behind.  The forest provides a kaleidoscope of greens as summer takes root. Autumn leaves on the trees are ablaze in yellows, oranges and reds – giving way to the sparkling blanket of snow in the winter. We decorate the inside, Nature takes care of the outside….while you enjoy the show.


Slow down and enjoy time. Recharge your batteries. Be in the moment. Nurture your spirit here at the Lodge-MI. Whether you are looking to get away for a weekend, host an offsite workshop or simply looking for a quiet home base, you are welcome here. We have met so many wonderful and interesting people here at the Lodge and it is our pleasure to do our utmost to take care of you when you stay with us.

Our accommodations 

We are an Airbnb Superhost and this is what some of our guests are saying about The Lodge-MI:

The Lodge was a perfect spot for 5 sisters-in-law to gather for relaxation and to enjoy high-quality accommodations. From the heartfelt welcome and ongoing attentive care, to the specially prepared food items and wonderfully eclectic home decor, Marla and Larry opened their hearts and home to us for an over-the-top bnb experience. The expansive property offers a variety of gathering spaces for personal conversation as well as freedom to explore beauty in the quiet natural surroundings. Each of us will remember the special times at The Lodge, and highly recommend this venue to others.

Marla and Larry were amazing host. They take pride in creating and offering up such a peaceful space to relax. Our only regret is not staying longer. We will be back for sure! We enjoyed walking in the trees on the property and a long morning stroll down the country dirt road. Thank you truly for a great experience Marla.


Marla & Larry were incredible hosts! They made my draining business trip a delight. Marla made the reservation process very easy and she was meticulous in making arrangements for my stay. I felt so cared for – what an unexpected delight! The Lodge is SPOTLESS – which is critical to me. The décor is bright, colorful, and inspiring. The bed is great – no morning back pain! They went to great lengths to accommodate my dietary restrictions & allergies. The food was fantastic! Marla and Larry are so hospitable and interesting to talk with over meals! The Lodge is simply beautiful in a beautiful natural setting. So quiet! I was greeted by a flock of wild turkeys in the yard as I arrived. I can’t wait to return for my next trip in October!


Marla and Larry were the best hosts I have ever had the pleasure to meet. From the reservation process to the making sure I find my way and the wonderful welcome message this stay was bound for greatness. I ran a 100mile race very close by the day after my arrival and spent another night after finishing it (and again, a congratulatory sign was waiting for me). The place is very thoughtfully decorated, spotlessly clean, the room has an incredibly great energy providing the best sleep and the food was amazing. Our conversations were held at a high and very entertaining level. There’s nothing I could think of that should stop you from staying with at the Lodge. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!


Having traveled the world ourselves, we know the value of peace, quiet and pleasant surroundings to relax/recharge. Let us offer you a home away from home – Our Home – a place to plan your next moves, to take a break, to recharge , to meditate and be in contact with nature. We have a yoga room for retreats as also a beautiful outside space for practice. We truly love hosting fellow travelers. We would feel honored to share our space with you.
