  • Family camp


    We had a wonderful stay!! It’s a nice place to host family gatherings. There are lots of things to do for both adults and kids. The dining area is big enough for all to eat at a table for meals. It has a nice big yard to play outdoor games.

  • Perfect size for my large family


    I loved The Lodge. The scenery was beautiful. My family was blown away. I have a few things that did bother me. It was not clean to the measure I was expecting. Last people trash outside in the barrel, fireplace not cleaned out, cobwebs everywhere, bugs in the windows, toilets with nasty rings in them, not vacuumed or floors cleaned just hot and miss. There was bo dishwasher detergent and 2 garbage bags. Other than the cleanliness we all absolutely loved it.

  • hang out for golf trip


    Although a 30 minute drive to the golf course, it was roomy and great to accomadate 8 of us. Lots of room and a very peaceful location. The house is old and could use some updating, but very satisfactory. We did not know there was no wifi until after we made the reservation. In the end, not a big deal.

  • Great place


    The property is remote, serene and beautiful. The house was great, plenty of room. Mixed messages in the check out instructions around trash and bedding. Overall a great experience.
