Grant’s Resort has been offering rental cabins on Bass Lake since the late 1960s and we continue to offer affordable family vacation rentals. Our cabins are a quiet getaway from the city and from the stress of daily life; with no television or telephone to distract you, you can focus on spending some quality time with your family and friends.

We strive to provide a laid-back atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy your vacation. We hope you find your time up north to be peaceful and fun; many of our guests return year after year and we love to see them.

Big Bass Lake

Bass Lake provides fun for the whole family. We have rowboats and kayaks available, as well as a sandy beach for swimming, and a raft to play on. We also have docks available for your own boats or jet skis; simply launch your watercraft at the public boat launch just a mile down the road and drive to Grant’s Resort.

Bass Lake is home to all sorts of wildlife: turtles, loons, herons, ducks, geese, and even the occasional bald eagle. Paddling a kayak around the shore of the lake is a great way to watch these creatures, but they can often be spotted right from the beach.

Hunting and Fishing

Bass Lake offers some great fishing. There are twelve species of fish found in the lake: large and smallmouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, green sunfish, pumpkin sunfish, rock bass, northern pike, tiger muskellunge, white sucker, yellow bullhead, and yellow perch. We have boats available for fishing, or you can fish from the dock.

The heated cabins are also available during hunting season. Whitetail deer season, both bow and rifle hunting, is always big in Irons, but turkey and small game are also easy to find in Lake County. Grant’s Resort is within a mile of federal forest land and excellent hunting grounds.


Irons, Michigan has plenty to offer in the winter; Lake County is home to an extensive trail system for snowmobiles, and the local bars and restaurants hold regular poker runs. Grant’s Resort is also a short drive from both downhill ski areas and cross-country skiing trails. Bass Lake freezes over every winter, offering ice fishing right outside your cabin door.
