We got one room for 4 people on Groupon. When I checked directly with hotel before our trip to make sure all things were in order the Manager said we had to pay an additional $15 per person for more than two in room. Groupon only mentions room but she said she would cancel on us if we didn't pay.... More

I've been using TripAdvisor for a couple of years for hotel recommendations - for me to consider a hotel it must have the vast majority of reviews as excellent or very good - which The Lodge at Leathem Smith does, however, this is the first time I've been let down by the TripAdvisor reviews. When we first checked in we... More

Thank you for taking your time to let us know about your recent stay with us. Our pool is cleaned daily, chemicals are added as needed and standards are based on the State Of Wisconsin guidelines. Our grounds to some, are beautiful enough for their wedding and other parties, but I am sure a weed or two may have gotten... More

Average to poor accommodations. Services poor at best. The bar and restaurant were never open. There was no staff After 9pm and no one at the desk before 7 am. No marina and no on site golf course. Not as advertised by ant means

Lodge is in good location. Entire service staff were super friendly and made us comfortable during the entire stay. Rooms were decent and clean. Breakfast was nice. Food options were bit expensive and restaurant staff are kind of unattentive. Overall enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I booked a much needed getaway and brought along our dog for his first vacation. Upon check-in the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

Our group of 36 spent two to three nights there for a long weekend of sewing. Is this the newest property? No BUT my room and bathroom were spotless! Staff was very accommodating and our food was good all weekend. Look forward to returning in the fall.

Four couples stayed at The Lodge for the Fall 50 Relay. weekend. The staff was friendly and the rooms pretty clean, but the place is in need of some updating. The bed, furniture and tv (~19" tube) were all showing their age. On the plus side, we enjoyed the fireplace area and continental breakfast.
