“We rate this a 6-Star, from hospitality to food to amenities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2010

The six of us have gone to Heather Lodge for 5 of the past 6 years for a winter weekend getaway. My husband and I tried it out in January 2005 and loved it so much that we decided this was the only place to spend our winter weekend getaway. Aaron and Connie are superb hosts and make your stay enjoyable in every way. The rooms are great - comfy and very tastefully decorated. The lounge is so cozy with the fire and big comfy chairs for reading or playing games. The scenery is picturesque, with lots of birds flying in for their dinner. If you're lucky, you may even see deer walking across the back at dusk. You can snowshoe right from the back door, or enjoy any of the trails close by. Last year the lake did not freeze enough to go skating, but we were lucky to find an outdoor skating rink in a nearby town which was great. There aren't a lot of rooms, which makes this a quaint spot. We say it's the best kept secret!!!! We haven't stayed here in the summer or fall, as we usually camp at that time of year, but one of these days we will because we know it will be awesome. I don't know how anyone can be disappointed with their stay with Connie and Aaron!
