Three nights in a yurt with luxurious accommodations that rival a 5-star hotel. If you want to get off the grid...but can't stand to rough it...this place is for you. No TV, but I had no problem with cell coverage in my yurt. The food in the Lodge building is top notch--diverse, organic, creative, & tasty. There's wifi in the... More

We stayed two nights in Yurt 2, which we loved. The furnishings were really nice, and the heated floors were luxurious. It was great to hear the rain on the roof of the tent, as well as the wind through the woods. Definitely a great glamping experience. The staff at SRL was extremely friendly. We appreciated the great micro-brews on... More

Pretty property, staff very friendly. Staying in a yurt was very nice and a nice alternative to a cabin. Most dinner entrees were quite rich with creams, maple syrup, etc -- would like to have had some simpler dishes to choose from. Asked about substituting lighter ingredients but said they couldn't. Took art and nature package to FLW houses, but... More

Just wonderful! I would have loved to visit during the winter and snow. The staff are great, the service is great and the food...forget about it! Yum! Loved it. So keep it a secret, will ya? Don't tell anyone. My suggestion is don't visit. Seriously...thank you! Wonderful!

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
