“Nothing better for family fun on the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Pack you beach wear and join the fun. This is a traditional summer get away offering a variety of accommodations from hotel rooms to cabins to homes, something for everyone. The pricing includes breakfast and dinner making it one of the few "no hassle" options available. Located midway between LG Village and Bolton Landing the resort has a wonderful waterfront, with complimentary sail boats, pontoon boats and speed boats all with a capable crew so you can get on the lake! CIL, as the name implies, also has a private island retreat with one of the most scenic swimming lagoons around (pontoon shuttle guests between the mainland and island all day). Relax with your friends/family and drink in the LG views! Marvelous

Had a great time at the end-of-summer outing. The food was great and the quantity of it was plentiful. Had fun with family and friends. Very family oriented and seemed quite a good place if you have kids. Not sure how a person traveling solo would fare as it seems set up for couples/families, but I'm sure the owner and staff (who were all accomodating and helpful) would make the person feel welcome. The resort is built on a steep grade and there are stairs involved...so heads up. Overall, I'd go again.

I've never written a review on tripadvisor before but wanted to say what a brilliant week we had at CIL this summer. Everything was truly amazing and beyond our expectations: the food, the accommodation, the beautiful lake, the activities for kids, the activities for adults, the lovely people who work there.

We are trying to work out if we can fit in a trip to the US next year just so we can return!

All the best from the Crane family of Brighton, UK.

Room Tip: Well, our room was directly on the lake with a lovely balcony.

The service at Canoe Island Resort is very accommodating. I would say the person responsible for hiring the staff performs their job splendidly. All staff was eager to assist and answer questions and they always wanted to ensure that our needs were met. Keep in mind we stayed at the end of the busy season where staff can get "burned out", but that isn't the case here.
The room we stayed in was clean and nice.
My wife and I stayed without the kids because we wanted to get away and also check out a vacation spot for next summer. After our experience, we definitely want to bring the kids the next time.

A wonderful place for a family reunion. Lots of fun for the children. They should call themselves Canoe Island Camp!
Yet no work for Mother. The meals are included and are delicious.
The staff is great and the trips to their own island was great. Including sailboat and water skiing trips.
A little pricey but worth it.

Our son's wedding was held at Canoe Island Lodge over Memorial Day weekend. The weather was horrible, but through the outstanding effort of the Canoe Island staff, especially Carla and Joe, the wedding was an absolute success. The bride and groom were allowed to make a last minute decision indoors or out, as the staff had set up in both places. The island barbecue the day before had to be held indoors due to the inclement weather. Again their flexibility made it a complete success.

Planning for the wedding was a terrific experience. Carla and Joe had great suggestions and cooperated with all the requests of the bride and groom. The chef was very accommodating with menu items. Guest raved about all the food. The breakfast, which was included with the room was excellent and plentiful as well.

The accommodations were outstanding.

Because the resort was closed except for the wedding the setting was very conducive for the families and guest to get to know each other over the weekend.

The entire staff was welcoming, efficient and ready to help in any way they could.

Stayed here for the first time and overall best family vacation we ever had. Clean rooms. Friendliest staff AND guests. The island and boating activities are amazing. Food is very good, catered to both the grown-ups and picky kids. LG village is just a few minutes drive, but spent the majority of out time at the resort. I can go on and on, but for all that is included the value is unbelievable. Going back next year and plan on making it an annual family tradition. Thank you CIL!!!
