This unique looking structure sits along the shores of Lake Huron. It has a strange look because it is made of concrete blocks. It is next to the Besser Natureal Area that is located between Alpena and Rogers City. Jesse Besser created a machine that made blocks from concrete for use in the construction of homes and buildings. I was not able to find any information on the lodge but someone told me The Besser Company built this building as a retreat. Jesse Besser donated the land next to the lodge in the 1960s to create the Besser Natural area. The building is still privately owned and still being used but you can see it from the hiking trail that runs along the shoreline.
