Gem of a setting in the High Uintas, historic lodge & cabins. Staff charming. Somewhat funky (community bath mats???) but good value. Don't visit if you want everything perfect. I thought the food was horrible, but they clearly did their best! Next visit, I will do my own cooking on the cabin deck. I loved sleeping with the sound of... More

We just got back from Spirit Lake lodge. We decided on the Powell cabin because our two dogs are jerks and need their own bed. It was comfortable and rustic with two queen beds as well as two twin beds in the loft/attic. The wood burning stove was especially nice since it snowed about 3" our first night there! (So... More

I just went up to Spirit Lake a week and a half ago. BEAUTIFUL--didn't want to leave. Manager and his teenage daughters were precious and very helpful and friendly. They set up a restaurant in the lodge that's open R-Su--good home cooked food, reasonable prices. The canned sodas were only 75 cents and there was 10 cent and 25 cent... More

This place is special. At the end of a long gravel road, it's an oasis in a exceptionally remote spot. It is clear it has great historic value and enormous potential. The new owners are working hard to find a way to make it profitable. I'm sure it's a big challenge. Unfortunately, the rates they have chosen could prove to... More

We just spent our 2nd Annual trip to Spirit Lake! Our Daughters family and her husband just enjoyed their 3rd annual trip. This year we invited our son and his family. The cabins are so nice, quaint, and clean. the wood burning stoves keep you toasty and warm at night . The Lake is solemn and breathtaking ! You can... More

We ( 2 adults, teen-age son, 1 beagle, 1 mutt the size of a beagle)spent 8/23-25/2012 here. The rustic cabins are rustic but very quaint and clean. The woodburning stove keeps it plenty warm. The area is beautiful beyond description. The lake is great, fishing was good. We rented a row boat for awhile and that was fun. There was... More

My family just returned from Spirit Lake. The place is really beautiful and serene. And, I would go back -- but, I would camp rather than stay in the cabins. The website is horribly out of date -- so do not make your plans using the website as a guide. The "lodge" does not have a restaurant, and they charge... More

Our family of 5 spent 3 nights in Sitting Bull cabin, a quiet and cozy place. The 3 kids spent time away from all the modern day conveniences and said that they would love to go back next year, for a longer stay! We only had 1 long rain shower, but used the wood stove nightly to heat the place... More

We just spent the weekend at the Spirit Lake Resort and oh my, what a place. Beautiful, rustic, well kept and just overall charming. The best part of the place is probably Mona, the "innkeeper" as it were. She is charming and helpful and just adds to the overall ambience of the place. It rained the whole time we were... More
