The owners are so nice and my family and myself have been going for 10+ years to the Lodge. They bend over backwards to make your trip a fantastic one. The staff is so nice & knowledgeable and make sure you are comfortable in every way. By far the best resort within 50 miles. So clean & walk out your... More

The staff was exceptionally accommodating and helpful. What a lovely place to spend a couple of nights. The beds were very comfortable and the views stunning. I recommend taking on of the pontoon boats out for an evening cruise.

I stayed at the Lodge at Blue Lakes as part of a 2-day conference. The staff were excellent, the rooms clean and well-appointed and spacious, and the lake was amazing! I can't remember the last time I swung off a rope swing into crystal clear waters... I won't soon forget this experience!

Maryann and Peter (owners) and Liou, Tiffany, Pablo (support staff - among others) provided excellent support and service to our group of 50+ professionals from around the country. From planning to execution the experience was professional, focused, and friendly. The small, tight knit staff took care of us every step of the way over nearly a two month process from... More

I am an independent business consultant (not paid by reviewee) I stayed at this lodge for 2 days and was dumfounded at the pure brilliance of organizational skill possessed by this German owner and his Asian wife. The place was well ordered from head to toe but not in a stupid rigid way. The Owner is a real kick as... More

I read a lot of reviews before booking this hotel and was convinced that it will be a great place for a short family trip. A couple reviews mentioned that they were charged extra for their children upon arrival, so I made sure I added our 1.5 and our 6 year old to the reservation. Nevertheless, when we checked in...

I can't say how much I enjoyed my time at the Lodge at Blue Lakes. Only a short drive from SF, the Lodge is in a perfect location right on Blue Lake, and has anything you would need to make the most out of your trip... Great breakfast, boats, kayaks, wine tasting, BBQ, pool - the works. The entire staff... More

Our room was beautiful, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The rates are reasonable, it definitely beat any expectations that we had, and the fishing!!!! Best we have seen in years, you can actually see the Bass and Trout from the shore!

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
