  • Nicely appointed condo

    "A very nicely appointed condo in a good location right across from the main lodge. Lots of room, bunk beds for kids, and a lot of nice extras like a boot warmer, games, etc. Very kid friendly with child locks on doors and many other kids on the floor during a busy weekend - probably not ideal for a couple looking for a quiet weekend. The owner, Richard, is easy to deal with and very welcoming."

  • Spacious Comfy Cabin

    "A lovely cabin with spacious living areas and decks. A very welcoming atmosphere when we arrived made us feel immediately at home. We were looking for a place with a usable kitchen, and this one was well-stocked for our needs. We enjoyed the ping-pong table & other games. Great for a stay-in vacation. It would be a nice place to come back to from hiking or skiing nearby. Owner (Julie) was very helpful and caretaker (Mary) keeps the cabin beautifully."

  • Couples Retreat

    "My husband & I booked the Lotus Lake House for an intimate, private, secluded weekend retreat. We found the directions very easy to follow and we’re very happy to see the house as pictured from the website. We were looking forward to the glass walls to enjoy the rain & evening sky, the privacy from other people and a place beautiful to want to stay in all weekend. Although it is secluded, it was not as private as we anticipated. We noticed people camping about 150 feet up from the house and you can also see another “house” from the side of the Lake House. We didn’t feel it was an issue with the “house” as we could not see any noticeable windows. As for the campers, we did feel as if we were in a fishbowl since the front of the house is glass walls and a clear view to the campers. We kept wondering if they were watching us (slightly creepy). I am unsure if they are allowed to camp or not, but it did give us an uneasy feeling since we had not read anything about campers in the guest book. We also did not contact the owner since we were there for just the weekend and felt it probably wouldn’t make much of a difference. Although it was creepy, we went on with our rainy weekend. We took advantage of watching some movies the owner had, but we would suggest bringing your own, as it is slightly limited. We realize the owner does not carry an extensive collection due to all the nature, but we were rained in, wanted to cuddle up, enjoy the rain, and watch a movie with some popcorn. We really enjoyed our intimate weekend. We found the Lotus Lake House had everything we needed. A few recommendations: 1. Read the guest book first. Many questions can be answered in it. 2. Bring an IPod adapter for IPhone to use for music (for the owner I would suggest having one at the house). 3. If you are allergic to dogs, the Lake House is probably not for you. It is a dog friendly property- inside & out. Immediately after opening the front door you can smell a strong odor of dog (smelled a mix between wet/ unwashed dogs). (For the owner we would recommend an air fresher to reduce the odor). 4. The bed is firm- we had read this in prior reviews, but felt that firm could mean something different to each person. For us, it was too firm, so be prepared if you enjoy pillow tops mattresses. 5. The frig is on the smaller side, so plan accordingly. We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a couple’s retreat .We would not recommend a group, as the house is l"
