I rented a cabin again with my mom for the 3rd time. Must not be that bad since we continue to visit The Lost Arrow. When we arrived, the pilot light was not working so we didn't have any hot water. We had to wait for the office to open to get someone to fix it; no one answered the... More

PROS: It was a very nice get away. They did allow us to update our room at the last minute. Pool was great. Clean and cozy cabin. CONS: we did not get a map to find the vending or pool. Also we did not get information about when the restaurant was open, check out our just basic information you would... More

We stayed here a few years back and have visited it several times. The food and service are always first rate. I see a few comments that seem negative, this is out in the sticks and on the water. The only way to really enjoy this place is to stay in a riverfront cabin. Trying to save money by renting... More

There was a new owner a few years back, and she really made some great improvements to the restaurant menu. The prices were lowered a little and the food was always good. My husband and I enjoyed going there several times in the summer on our boat. We were disappointed to find out this year there are different owners again.... More

The river house is an awesome place to sit back and relax. The food at the restaurant is very good. They have drink specials every day and the bartenders Kelly and Sonny are awesome. The new owners are putting their heart and soul into this property so come on up and try it out.

We live about 30 miles from Lost Arrow and have been there several times for lunch and dinner over the past 2 years Food is normally pretty good, but service can be spotty at times. They seem to have problems when they're really busy. But relax and enjoy the scenery. Did away with two of out favorite dishes this year.... More

Stayed in a river cabin and it was great. Beautiful views of the river, especially in the mornings as the river is as smooth as glass. I spent much of my life coming up here to the family cottage, and then to our parents retirement home until they sold and moved away years ago...it was really nice to be able... More

We only went to the restaurant for dinner with friends. I ask for a Bacardi and coke only to be told they were out of Rum only spice Rum was available. Ordered the calamari first time I've ever had it with cocktail sauce. We all ordered the perch special. The coleslaw was really fresh although the portion was very small.... More
