Another wonderful getaway at the lodge
This was our second time staying at the lodge and we'll certainly be going back in the years to come. While the weather didn't cooperate this time, the property is still so serene and peaceful. We had plenty to do, exploring the woods, making the snow run to the hot tub, stoking late night fires, hanging out in the game room, or just sitting back relaxing and watching nature. The furniture cushions could use some replacing/repair; while comfortable they are quite saggy. The lodge is the perfect getaway from the wear and tear of everyday life. Thanks for the lasting memories!
Amazing memories with friends
Had an absolutely wonderful time at The Lodge this past week. The property is beyond beautiful & is right in the heart of the wilderness. There are so many activities to do regardless of the weather.

Great for large groups.
Great for parties. Good place and well set up to allow for fun times.
A perfect Thanksgiving break!
Perfect house for a relaxing Thanksgiving break! the very cosy interior and beautiful decoration give to the house a great cabin feel. Nice playroom with all games in great condition. Fireplace, firepit and hot tub are also a great addition, with plenty of wood provided. Owners have been very helpful to answer all questions! just need to prepare your walks around the house.
It is so nice to know that we had a small part in making a perfect Thanksgiving break for you and your group!
