  • Family stay


    We really enjoyed our stay. We spent the weekend with family for our 2 year olds birthday. This lodge is so spacious and is full of so many fun things. We will definitely be staying here again!

  • Great Big Family Vacation


    This place is perfect for all age group families. Plenty of games and things to do. We even saw a cemetery in the property. The only flaw to this property was their were small roaches in the 2nd floor kitchen, a stained toilet, stained shower curtains and one of the mattresses had dips in it. But overall ignoring these tiny issues it was a perfect stay.

  • Great family time


    We had the best time! We celebrated my son’s 2nd birthday. Cannot say enough great things about this lodge. It was so spacious and was equipped with almost everything you could think of. We were able to stay together with my family, play games and enjoy time together. Will definitely recommend this lodge and will likely stay again in the future.

  • This cabin was perfect for our youth group from Berlin Baptist Church.


    There were so many things to do on our weekend trip to Joshuas Lodge without leaving the property. Pool table, foosball, books, Nerf darts. On top of that they already had treats ready for us.
