“Great gateway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We booked a cabin the first weekend they opened. The cabin was mostly clean (they forgot to dust off some higher places after the winter). Bathroom was fine, no issues with hot water....a bit of a spider infestation but I guess that's expected in a cabin. Our cabin (rustic 2) had a beautiful huge fireplace. The only thing was that the glass in the fireplace door was loose and we had to lean the fire poker against it to make sure it stayed closed and the smoke did not come in the room.
Wood, newspaper, and matches were provided. We loved our breakfasts at the lodge - simply delicious. The staff was very friendly - some still a bit not sure about what to do as it was really the first weekend they were opened. Dinner prices are a bit too high for us but if you are used to eating lightly their salads are reasonably priced and delicious.
We will definitely return.

Stayed for a Family Reunion, gave plenty of options for lower budget RV parking or higher end cabins for every family budget. Plenty of activities for hiking, lake fun or just hanging out.

Because our cabin was so nice I forgot this was not a hotel but "camping" and did not bring my own hairdyer....yes hairdryer.. bring your own if you are not a big "camper".

Don't forget to tip the staff cleaning your cabin just like you would a hotel.

Great location.. amazingly beautiful.

Room Tip: there is a wedding tent so when choosing your cabin consider how much you want to hear the late nigh...

I had a great time at Redfish. The cabins were a great fit for the environment. They looked like classic rustic structures but were clean, comfortable, and well equipped inside.

The amenities at the lodge were great. I had fun canoeing, paddle-boarding, and hanging out on the beach. The views are beautiful and it is fun to feel like you're really in the outdoors and away from civilization.

I'm already thinking about planning another trip here.

Room Tip: We had lakeside and creekside cabins and enjoyed them.

Redfish Lake Lodge has a great location and is quite far away from any cities or towns. It was a great way to experience nature without leaving behind the comforts of home. There was a bathroom with a shower as well as a kitchen with a dishwasher in my Creekside cabin. The bed was very comfortable as well. I greatly enjoyed my time in my cabin, and the views outside were quite spectacular.

We traveled here for a company retreat. The lake is beautiful and crystal clear. There's a sandy lake front area, plenty of boats, kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats to rent. There are many trails and hikes to explore. They have mountain bikes for rental. There is little to no light pollution which allows for a breathtaking view of the stars. The cabins are really nice and are operate as a full hotel service (air conditioned, kitchen, dining room, tiled bathrooms, comfortable beds). This place is great for large group gatherings.

I stayed here as part of a company retreat, and the entire complex has a great setup. The cabins were clean and comfortable, the rental staff were friendly and the area is well-maintained with easy access to the lake and some beautiful hiking trails.

Redfish Lake Lodge was a great experience for our company retreat. We had just slightly over 50 people sharing rooms across lakeside cabins and creekside cabins. Each cabin had adequate space for meetings, meals, etc. We had no problem renting canoes, boats, bikes, etc. It was a great trip!
