We have stayed at Spectacle Lake Lodge a number of times, and always had a great experience. This time couldn't have been much better, with excellent weather, plenty of time to enjoy the beach, swim, and use the free kayaks and canoes. This lodge is a great place to go for a quiet, relaxing getaway. We (my wife and I,... More

We spent a night here last week, while passing through the area. The property is beautiful, sited on a south-facing point on pretty Spectacle Lake. The grounds are professionally landscaped and impeccably maintained. There are both a sandy beach and a nice flat rock point. All of the cabins are very close to the water and have great lake views.... More

We brought my aunt here while she was visiting from England to give her a taste of the true Canadian experience. The cabin was lovely, the food was fantastic and the service was above and beyond. She is still talking about her time at Spectacle Lake Lodge and wishes she hadn't been too chicken to come swimming! She's planning on... More

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...
