My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to get away for Memorial Day Weekend when we stumbled upon The Lodge at Blue Lakes. I cannot say more wonderful things about this place! When we arrived, Tiffany at the front desk was incredibly friendly and helpful. Although the accommodations at the Lodge at Blue Lakes are fantastic, we decided... More

Quaint hotel on a lake. Grounds nice, choose lake view rooms- the "mountain" view is more of a parking lot and highway view. We enjoyed sitting under the gazebo with a glass of wine lakeside. Rooms have been renovated, beds comfy, clean room. Only a few guests so breakfast muffins and fruit were delivered to the room. Website pictures accurate.

Recently my son got married at The Lodge at Blue Lakes. Very neat and clean rooms. The views are beautiful. But the staff made it a wonderful experience. Anything we needed preparing for the wedding was available. The food prepared for our event was fantastic. I would not hesitate to book another event there. The owners are great! The event... More

Spent just 1 night there, but the place is really lovely, beautiful quaint setting with lakefront rooms. The rooms are very clean and have all the basic stuff. The breakfast was n ot huge but tasty and delivered right in the room. Our reservation also included an hour of kayaking on the lake, which we could not use, because it... More

What a beautiful setting ! Our family met here for Easter Weekend and WOW what an amazing place. The views that we had from our clean and updated rooms were astounding. We spent the evenings in the heated gazebo, and then another evening around the gas fireplace that sits on a deck overlooking the lake. Our family met every morning... More

Make no mistake this is a lodge that has been here for awhile. It is what makes this place a hidden gem. In the breakfast room you are surrounded by painting that were done in the 40s. There is a large fire place built from large round rocks that puts out a wonderful warm comforting feel while having breakfast looking... More

We spent an entire week at the lodge to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a very charming and relaxing place. It's right next to a lake where you can go fishing and boating. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. It's an ideal place for those who like the outdoors but need all... More

We made reservations here for last weekend. Upon arriving to the "lodge" we were sure we had the wrong place. It looked like a dated old roadside motel. The office had barely enough room to stand in and smelled musty. I told them this was nothing like the pictures. I realize pictures can look better than realty but the brown... More

This lodge was very reasonably priced and sits right in front of the lake. The waterfront view is amazing, even on a misty and cold day. The staff ( Tiffany and Liou ) were extremely helpful about telling us all the amenities covered, which included outdoor barbecuing and kayaking. In the off-season, free breakfast was delivered to our door. If... More

Our local organization, The Lake County Land Trust, held our annual dinner at The Lodge on Oct. 11. It was absolutely fantastic. We held it during the day, so everyone was able to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Blue Lakes and surrounding mountains. The venue is lovely, and the perfect size for our group of over 100 people.
