Make sure you have your shots up to date. Only thing missing is a guy standing in the woods with a hockey mask and machete. The owner walks around dazed and confused, just clueless. Don't eat any food at joes cabin it's a joke they only have burgers and chicken nuggets. The bun was stale and freezer burned I took... More

Me and my girlfriend wanted to have a little girls get away for the weekend but not wanting to spend an arm and a leg. We decided to go with these or joe's cabins or ricks cabins or C & K cabins (whatever their name is) just bc they seemed to be "ok".... Not even close. We like adventures but... More

Biggest Understatement Ever: All units are light housekeeping. And and insult to the term "rustic." My husband, daughter, and I stayed here in 2010 after a wedding. The room was so bad we considered checking out, and driving home. However, after a long day, we chose to chance it. In theory I think this establishment only survives because of its... More

Do not stay here! If you are reading these reviews and thinking to yourself "it can't be that bad", IT IS THAT BAD. Please understand the difference between "rustic" and "old and not taken care of". Our place was run down, smelly, filthy dirty, so HOT and humid that we had trouble breathing!!! The TV did not work, the water... More

This place is a hell hole. We stayed in both the cabins and the hotel room based on the size of our group. The cabin can best be described as a shack, cable tv consisted on AMC and that was all. Beds were terrible, one bed in the motel had bed bugs. The web site makes the place seem alight... More

Would not recommend this place for the amount of money they wanted per night. The cabin was very "rustic", had holes in the walls, only one coat of paint, ramp was rotten and falling apart, very minimal utensils and cooking pans. But it did have a bathroom and a roof over our heads so was not a total waste. It... More

Rustic but very c lean when we got there. Cabin got hot during the day but when we got back in the evening and opened the windows with the fan going cooled off right away. Needed to bring own sleeping bags. Small TV available (we brought our own dvd player). Kitchen was complete with large fridge. Flush toilet and shower... More

Thouht we would spend a couple of nights at Candle Lake, typed in cabin rentals and up pops Joes Cabins. Website looked pretty good - picture of the cabins was pretty promising. Pulled up to the lodge to check in (this should have been the first sign for us), looked like something from a horror film...OK, let's give them the... More

My husband and I arrived at the cabin with eager anticipation. What met us as we opened the door was an very ugly cabin, with filthy walls and floors, a terrible outlay of an improvised kitchen, no utensils or supplies and an undescrible stench! There were stains on all of the walls and furniture, cobwebs in every corner, filth around... More

We have been to many lakes and resorts in Northern Saskatchewan , but this place is the most filthy , disgusting hole we ever stayed at. It was a wet summer and there was a a slough under the cabin , so you can imagine the mosquitos. We were stung by wasps which had a nest in the walls...lizards and... More
