We just got back from a 4 night stay here and it was wonderful. We love privacy and quiet and that is exactly what we got. When your on the lake you do feel like the only people in the world and the lake itself is beautiful. The pool was clean and the kids loved it and our dog loved... More

Thank you for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are constantly maintaining the cabins and the grounds, but it has been a busy summer and so have some catching up to do. More

My husband and I spent a few days at the lodge over the 4th of July. The entire property is absolutely gorgeous, so close to the lake! The fishing was amazing and so, so very quiet. The lake is completely surrounded by trees, as are the cabins: as such, the amazing and ancient trees offer the perfect cover for mosquitoes.... More

Our cabins are continually being upgraded and they are priced accordingly as to their condition. They happened to stay in our most rustic cabin, which is why it is also the least expensive, although to some of our guests that have stayed in many cabins it is also their favorite. More

Just returned home from a fishing weekend at Ghost Lake Lodge. Had an absolutely amazing time. Six of us stayed in Cabin 3 - very spacious with amazing views of the lake. Literally 15-20 yards from the water. This is a typical northwoods cabin. The cabin was old but the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Nathan (the owner) was fantastic,... More

We new that the cabins were over 60 years old but they should be better maintained. You do not expect to see bits of kitchen towel in windows and were the walls meet the ceiling to stop the draft from coming in. Kitchen needs to be remodeled and checked over toaster only toasted one side of bread a lot of... More

I am sorry to learn that this guest did not enjoy their stay, and unfortunately once again they did not inform me of any issues while they were here. I do all I can to ensure each guest has an enjoyable stay and will do what I can to rectify any issues brought to my attention. The cabins are almost... More

We have been to Ghost Lake Lodge several times in the past but it has been 4 years since our last trip. GLL has made some obvious improvements throughout the property. We stayed in cabin 7 in late July- early August. The cabin was just perfect. It has been redone in a charming fishing cabin style incorporating the old bones... More

I love this place! Stayed here with my significant other in mid July of this year. We did a lot of research regarding where we should stay in the Hayward area and once we saw GLL online we were decided. But still, you never know. We stayed in Cabin 0. It was the perfect size for a couple. The woodwork... More

This resort is a true gem! Historic, rustic cabins on a beautiful lake! We had one of the nicest vacations in recent memory and we will be back. We were here in early July 2013 and have booked another stay for the fall colors. Our cabin was cozy and clean with great access to Ghost Lake (right on the shoreline),... More

Our welcoming was friendly and things went smoothly for checking in, but my spouse & I had our concerns just from the look of things – “run down - beyond used up”... Our concerns were beyond true. Having old cabins is one thing maintaining them & keeping them clean is another, cabin #5 was a dump. Clump of hair in... More

I was surprised at this review. We strive to provide clean cabins, and our laundry is sent out and done professionally. We are located in an old growth hemlock grove, so the pool does get debris in it, however it is cleaned daily. This guest did not express any of his concerns to management during the stay and so we... More

We stayed in Cabin 0 for a few days in August 2011. The cabin was remarkably clean and very cozy. We had a bit of trouble with the motor on our boat at the dock, when we told them about it they fixed it immediately. Our welcome there was very friendly even though we arrived late. We felt very welcomed... More

Absolutely great accommodations! We had a family reunion at Ghost Lake Lodge and everyone enjoyed every bit of a 4 day/3 night event. Rustic but very clean. We felt deep in the woods yet every need met beyond expectations. Great times to really get to know each other ~ visiting to the musical background of Loons & Owls ~ at... More
