These log cabins are nestled in the woods overlooking beautiful Burntside Lake with its many loons, which you can hear throughout the day. You can rent boats, paddle boards, kayaks and hydro-bikes to explore the lake. The restaurant is pricey but you get what you pay for. Burntside Lodge makes it easy to unplug, because there are no TVs and... More

So enjoyed the historic quality of the lodge. It is rare to find such authentic Northwood's construction in such pristine condition. The food was out of this world and the cocktails were heavenly. The whole family was there on vacation and each of our cabins were beautifully decorated, supplied with quality amenities, and offered cooking facilities if one was interested.... More

Clean and friendly and the perfect quiet get away. We stayed in cabin 11 which had a little slant to the floor, added to the charm! Wish there were hiking trails on the property . We rented a boat for some fishing and to explore the beautiful lake. We would go back again.

We have stayed in Cabin 3 twice, both times in early June, and both times we have loved the location, the wonderful historic feel of the lodge, the food at the restaurant, and waking in the early morning on such a serene lake.

Burntside Lodge is a wonderful haven for rest and beauty. There are also many things to do. Burntside Lake is one of the most deep, clear, and cold lakes I have ever seen. It is very special. We were there this year for the Lodge's 100th birthday celebration. It was great to return. The cabins are comfortable, the Lodge welcoming.... More

Authentically rustic while being sophisticated and modern. The best of both worlds. Food, atmosphere, ambiance and that wonderfully deep, clear lake. It is said that the lake was once the site of the Hamms Beer commercials. Boats or pontoon boats are available for rent.

This was not our first stay at Burntside, about 9 years ago we spent a last September weekend at Burnside with friends and vowed we would return. Not sure why it took so long, but when we noticed Burnside was celebrating it's 100th anniversary we had to get back. We spent 3 days in a smaller unit this time, #3.... More

Our family has been coming to Burntside Lodge for over 50 years. It is truly unique in its ability to combine an impeccable rustic cabin resort experience with outstanding hospitality, fine dining and a breath-takingly beautiful natural environment. Favorite activities range from a quiet afternoon reading a book on the dock (or in the cabin or lounge on a rainy... More

We stayed in Cabin 1 which has 3 bedrooms, a nice kitchen and sitting room, and a wooden deck. The deck is on the rocks that lead into the lake. We were able to fish right outside the front door! We also had our own dock and rented a pontoon boat which was a great size with plenty of seating... More

We stayed at Burntside Lodge with friends in Cabin 4 to celebrate my birthday. My husband and I have enjoyed dinner there before, but never stayed there. The cabin was very well equipped. The new shower was lovely and our beds were SO comfortable. You will never get tired of the view. Cabin 4 is situtated wth 2 tiered patio... More
