Biddy’s Hilltop Lodge is family built, owned and operated.

Biddy’s Hilltop Lodge is a rustic log lodge with many unique and special features. It is set
on top of an exclusive 5 acre hill in Manistee County, Michigan with expansive panoramic views, including Crystal Mountain Resort, fields, meadows, a pond and 1000’s of acres
of forest. Every season at the lodge is beautiful and the fall colors are spectacular. Abundant wildlife provides an opportunity to view a large variety of song birds and woodpeckers at established feeders right outside the windows. Watch bald eagles, ospreys and hawks soar at eye level over the meadows below where whitetail deer, wild turkeys and sandhill cranes forage.

"It is the desire of our hearts that friends, family and couples who are guests at the Biddy’s Hilltop Lodge truly get away from it all, enjoy the beauty of Gods creation, draw closer together and return home feeling rested and refreshed. So open the windows and listen to the leaves rustle in the wind, enjoy the sounds of song birds, woodpeckers, chipmunks, wild turkeys, nesting cranes and more. Listen to the fire crackle in the fireplace while big snowflakes fall and blanket the country side."

May God richly bless you,
The Thachenkary Family
