Melgeorges resort on Elephant Lake

5 posts in this topic

Well, for anyone looking for a nice getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the every day grind, take a good look at Melgeorges resort on Elephant lake.

The cabins seem very nice with some rustic log cabins. All the convieneces of home included. Just bring your food and drink or maybe relax a bit more and go to the lodge overlooing the lake and enjoy a meal.

As far as the fishing in Elephant, we fished for crappies and I can say this, some very nice crappies running near that 15" mark with many perch, walleye and all some of those hard fighting smallmouth.

Check out Melgeorges for a fun getaway with the family or friends.

All I can say is that the cabins are very nice in a private natural setting with a gorgeous view of lightly developed Elephant Lake. Not only was the fishing very good but it's also great for those folks wanting to hike, snowmobile or observe nature.

We found loads of respectable crappies, walleyes and jumbo perch. It's definitely a great location for those who looking to get away from it all and relax.

Talk about a slice of heaven 10 miles down a scenic drive off of a main highway. Secluded, gorgeous, well kept, comfortable, and lets sneak in some great fishing.... Try to beat it, might be tough. If you don't want the crazy hustle and bustle of a lake with multiple resorts, if you want a cabin with wonderful settings, if you want to get away from your busy life and just relax, plus get some great fishing with great fish like we found. Elephant Lake and Melgeorges Resort are first class and a perfect get away.

If you want to fish, snowmobile, hike, or just get away for the weekend this is the place to go.

The cabins have all the comforts of home with a real nice rustic feel to them. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of every day life on a lake that, as stated before, has some very respectable crappie fishing. I spent a weekend there and didn't want to leave.

If you're looking for a place to get away, catch some real nice crappies, and just plain relax, Melgeorges is the place to go.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
