My husbanc and I have stayed here in the winter (never in summer). The snowmobile trails are great and the scenery is beautiful. There is a lodge and several cabins. We have only ever stayed in a cabin. They are very clean and met all our needs. Our cabin had 2 bedrooms, a washroom and a small living area. Besides... More

We snowmobiled to Spectacle Lake Lodge and overnighted along with another couple. We booked two rooms in the main lodge. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and quiet. We enjoyed drinks at the bar at the end of our ride and had dinner that evening. The food and service is excellent. The staff made it enjoyable and were attentive to any... More

We were out snowmobiling and looking for a place to stay. Just saw a sign on the trail and thought we would give it a look. We were pleasantly surprised. For a very reasonable per person price, we had a 2 br cottage, 3 course dinner and breakfast. The food was great, service friendly and cottages clean.

Got married at Spectacle Lake Lodge July 2014 and it was everything we wanted!! It was a rustic, cottage feel, lovely beach, beautiful lake, guests stayed 2 nights, hung out on the beach, mingled, chilled during the day while the wedding party got ready. Planned this wedding from afar (Yellowknife!) so lots was done via email and phone without issue.... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this lodge. The room, 1A, we stayed in was clean and spacious. The toilet is in a separate area from the shower, and it was a bit small, and that was okay, however, if you are a larger person, you may find it a bit uncomfortable. However, the room is close...

We stayed in one of the rooms rather than a cottage as there were only the two of us. To our delight we had many amenities in our room that we weren't expecting. There was a mini fridge and coffee maker as well as a blow dryer. The room was nicely updated and was a very good size. Gorgeous view... More

We are winter warriors! Snow seekers if you will. Having traveled to Ontario many times for snowmobiling, Spectacle Lake Lodge is one of our favorite destinations. A place to call home base as you spend the days traveling in and around the eastern OFSC trail system. Sharon and her staff complete the experience with hospitality and great food. Owner operated...

We loved our stay in the charming, spotless cottage at the edge of beautiful Spectacle Lake. The fall colours were at their height, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting in which to enjoy them. Many thanks to Sharon for her kindness in upgrading us to a cottage! We appreciate Sharon and Lisa's warm welcome and all... More

Last June, we had made a reservation for 2 people and had asked for 2 beds but were told there were non availlable. That was disappointing,but we decided that as we were there for a wedding we would make do. Upon arrival we waited at the empty desk for 5 minutes for someone, and then went in search of someone...

We are local cottagers who have frequented Spectacle Lake restaurant at least 2 times per summer for years (usually for a birthday celebration). We mostly come for the view/atmosphere, as there are a few other places around where the food - in my opinion - is better. Nevertheless we're not sure if we'll be back. On our most recent visit,...
