My husband and i had a terrific weekend at SRL! We were both apprehensive about staying in a yurt, but it exceeded our expectations by far! Heaps of space, a little fridge, a large bathroom, and heated floors! Those floors came in so handy after out in the snow all day, and when getting up in the morning. We were... More

Booked this for my husband and I as an anniversary treat. We stayed in yurt #1. The yurts are warm, comfortable, spacious and they have every luxury of a hotel suite. Both meals we ate in the restaurant were delicious. Staff was extremely friendly. You will not be disappointed booking a stay at SRL!

This was our first trip and although the place has 19 log cabins, they were all booked so we rented a yurt. It wasn't much to look at from the outside, but boy was it comfortable and spacious inside. Leather furniture, large bathroom, a cozy fireplace and heated floors! Then, add the personable staff and delicious food, and that equals... More

If you are looking for a place to go to relax and I mean relax, this is the place. Here is a spot where you can go and step outside your cabin or yurt and hear nothing but the wind. No cars, no planes, no noise what so-ever. Relaxing and tranquil. Enjoy superb food in a their beautiful lodge. The... More

We decided to stay in a yurt while celebrating birthday/anniversary weekend. We traveled about 3 hours via car- check in was smooth and the front desk staff was friendly. We received our yurt key and headed back out. The lodge provides you with little luggage carts for your convenience- and we used it. We were both pleasantly surprised by the... More

We stayed over Valentine's Day weekend and didn't want to leave! Despite 6 inches of snow, temperatures below zero, and gale-force winds, our yurt stayed warm and cozy. We explored the Savage River trails on the first day and the trails at New Germany the second. The Valentine dinner at the Lodge was delicious. Our server was very sweet but... More

We once again spent a long weekend at the Lodge enjoying the snowy trails and the great food in the restaurant. We love this place so much last August we had our wedding in the woods with a small cadre of close friends and family. Mike and Jan really make you feel at home. This time we left our pups... More

When my family and I went, there were only 2-3 other cabins that were filled. We stayed two nights, and on the second night we were the only cabin in use. The cabin itself was awesome; the gas stove + the fans keep the whole place warm. I loved how simple the cabin was, but also homey. The only 'complaint'... More

This was our 4th trip to the Savage River Lodge for the Christmas holiday and we were lucky to get Cabin 11 -- again. One of the extra special "moments" was having dinner delivered to our cabin by Christine: she set up the table, complete with water and linens, the food was delicious and stayed warm and we had a...

We took a chance on the weather for a ski break after Christmas with our daughter and dog. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate but the Lodge itself more than made up for the dry weather. There was plenty of good hiking right from the lodge--and a few good Geocaches, as well! As we brought our dog we opted to... More
