Recent Donnelly property reviews

  • Amazing property!

    "First, let me say this is a beautiful property. If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway for a few people or a small family, I highly recommend this location. In fact, I would recommend that be the only target market for this location. Everyone else should stay clear. The neighbors are bitter that this is a rental property. Within an hour of being at the cabin, we had received noise complaints. So at 6PM we find ourselves being told “get your stuff and get the hell out” by the rental property management lady. After we calmed the property management lady and neighbor down, we moved everyone inside and enjoyed the rest of the weekend. Full Disclosure: We had only been there an hour or two, the initial excitement hadn’t worn off and we probably were pretty loud. Having said that, it was four or five in the afternoon. Additionally, the neighbors have a retaining wall made of huge rocks. Under no circumstances are you to touch the rocks! Doing so will get you yelled at by an incredibly disrespectful property manager. There is a journal sitting on the coffee table at the cabin for renters to write in. Most of the feedback talks about how nice the cabin/area is but there are plenty of past renters describing experiences very similar to ours. The very unprofessional property management and locals surrounding the property really do ruin what would otherwise be an amazing experience."

  • Great Family Vacation Home

    "My family and I were looking for a place with lots of room to spread out. We have teenagers and young children (the two don't mix well.) We found this home to be perfect! With 3 stories and 2 entertainment rooms, we were all very comfortable when we found our selves housebound due to an unexpected snow/sleet storm. We will visit this home again and recommend it to others. Thanks for a great memory!"

  • Best Place to stay!

    "We stayed there in the middle of June. After a recent passing of a family member we decided to have a family reunion and all met at this vacation home. There was close to 20 of us (6 being small kids) and we had plenty of room to sleep! The home is beautiful as well as the outside view! The kids had the time of their lives here and so did the adults! Our family has all decided to return to this home next year! Not a single complaint coming from us! Thank you!!!! !"

There are loads of leisure and recreational activities available. For those that enjoy water sports, you can bring your boat to go waterskiing or wake boarding on the lake. The water is also great for paddling if you want to explore the lakeshore. There are several public picnic areas and these are usually located near the public boat launch areas. Sailing is also popular and there are some local outfitters where you can rent equipment.

Fishing is another popular activity on the lakeshore. Stop in at one of the local stores for tackle and bait, and find out from the locals where the best spots for fishing are.

Seasons to Visit Donnelly Lodging

Most visitors choose to visit Donnelly in the warmer summer months of June through August. The school vacation period is the peak season because it is such a popular family vacation destination. The long and warm summer days are ideal for spending out on Lake Cascade. You can also then enjoy the many other outdoor recreational activities on offer. In the winter months, the area experiences generally good snowfall. Snowmobiling is one of the favorite pastimes and there are also many cross country skiing trails in the area. If you are looking for a quiet mid-winter break, opt for a cottage that has a fireplace where you can snuggle up with a mug of hot chocolate and enjoy the views outside your window.
