Hard to believe the negative reviews based upon our trip in late June-early July. Prior to arrival, we called and e-mailed various questions which were quickly and politely answered. Check-in (by Dawn) was a breeze. Our cabin was clean and everything worked. Our refrigerator wasn't quite level but was taken care of quickly after we mentioned it. We enjoyed our... More

I don't know where all this bashing is coming from. I was just up there over Memorial day weekend of this year (2014) and we had a great trip. We got the trip through Whitetails Unlimited and were a tad skeptical after a few bad reviews, and that was quickly erased when we got there. The boat we had originally... More

Just got back from an amazing week at Driftwood Lodge. Cannot wait to go back. We had a group of 8 and stayed comfortably in the Moose cabin. It was perfect. Everyone had their own bed and space. Two full bathrooms was a huge plus. All cabins are within a stones throw of the lake. I already miss my morning... More

All I can say, there are always two sides to every story. If it was such a bad trip, why did it take a year to post/review it. He left out a couple of important topics about the groups behavior while they were here. If someone would really wants to know the details, please call and ask. More

We had a wonderful time at Driftwood. The fishing guide was very helpful and we caught a lot of fish. We want to bring other people with us next year. It is very clean and if you had any problem they took care of it right away. We had dock boy's that were very helpful and they even took care... More

Just read the below review and needed to comment. We've been coming to Kabetogama for many years. While we've never stayed at Driftwood (not because there is anything wrong with it, it looks very good; we're just attached to the resort we've been staying at for years), we have frequently rented boats from them. I'm writing because we've had nothing... More

We won this trip through a Whitetails Unlimited banquet. I really love the north woods and was especially looking forward to this trip. When we called to make our reservations, there was absolutely no hassles, no playing the 21 question game about whether or not this was actually won at the banquet ( way too easy). About 3 weeks before... More

Traveled to this lodge as a result of an auction at a Whitetails benefit with 3 friends. The first day we were there we ran into some issues with the trolling motor on our $730 boat rental. The second day a freak accident caused the motor cover to fly off and sink to the bottom of the lake scaring us... More

We booked this trip last year through a Whitetails benefit. At that time the reviews were great, people that had been here in the past really enjoyed it. When we booked our cabins, the website stated that there were plenty of family activities including an ice cream social, tie dying t-shirts for the kids, beach day and other activities. When... More

My wife and two small children thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Driftwood Lodge. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. The cabins were very clean- My wife noticed that as soon as we entered the cabin. Our cabin had a beautiful view of the lake. Lake Kabetogama has beautiful sunsets. The weather was perfect. 78/55 degrees. Voyaguers National Park... More
