4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently spent 2 nights here, and were happy to see we got a great view of the lake and mountains on the back side of the hotel, just as advertised when we booked the room. We spent some time sitting on our personal balcony enjoying that view. Everything was clean and well maintained. The room was standard hotel set-up,... More

I was dissapointed. The lake side (across the street) view was limited from a small area off the lobby. The arial view online creates the appearance to be all lake view rooms which is not the case. I assumed also (big mistake on my part) there was a pool, kind of surprising there wasn't. We couldn't sit outside the lobby... More

We spent the weekend and enjoyed the views from our room. The free breakfast had a hot bar and the scrambled eggs tasted home-made. The fresh-baked cookies every afternoon were a nice addition, as well.

We had a great view from our balcony, room was nice but older, could use some updating. The front desk people were really nice. My husband & daughter ran a 5K that morning and they gave us a late checkout, which was really helpful.

We had a great stay at the Lake Chatuge Lodge. Beautiful view from the room, and the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant at the bottom of the hill (entrance to the hotel) that is a must-visit.

Not the kind of lodge we were looking for. The place was dirty, unkept, and outdated by thirty years or more. The tiles on the bathroom floor were loose and missing grout. The walls needed painting and the beds had the thinnest blankets. The room smelled of mold and the furniture was well worn.The whole building could use a good... More
