Simply, Way Over Priced. $100 dollars for the larger cabin and $60 dollars for the smaller cabin. We rented two cabins, both were in the same shape, run down. The reservations are made on the internet and totally change when you arrive. They kicked out one There were cracks in the walls so the wind blew straight through.One inch gap... More

These are primitive, tiny cabins in a beautiful setting. There is no electricity or water in the cabin itself. There is no insulation,and the gap around and under the door was 1-2".The wood stove kept it toasty, but there is a smoky smell when you use it. Our cabin was very dark inside and the battery operated lantern they provide... More

Read the other reviews for good physical descriptions of the resort as they are accurate. I like the unique, and the authentic "the way it was" feel of this place was terrific in a world of Holiday Inn Express sameness. For that reason I am looking forward to my next visit, but be aware this may be too much authenticity... More

These cabins are located on beautiful Spirit Lake on the edge of Flaming Gorge National Reservoir. BEWARE.......they have no running water, no electricity and no heat except a wood stove. They do have a room wih showers, a flush toilet, etc. They do give you a lantern and tons of quilts if you need. It's down a seven mile dirt... More

We enjoyed this little gem. The people who run it are very pleasant and giving. The do anything and everything to make you feel "at home" The one girl even left matches on our door step because we had ran out and she hear us talking about it. Can't wait to go back!!!

Gem of a setting in the High Uintas, historic lodge & cabins. Staff charming. Somewhat funky (community bath mats???) but good value. Don't visit if you want everything perfect. I thought the food was horrible, but they clearly did their best! Next visit, I will do my own cooking on the cabin deck. I loved sleeping with the sound of... More

We just got back from Spirit Lake lodge. We decided on the Powell cabin because our two dogs are jerks and need their own bed. It was comfortable and rustic with two queen beds as well as two twin beds in the loft/attic. The wood burning stove was especially nice since it snowed about 3" our first night there! (So... More

I just went up to Spirit Lake a week and a half ago. BEAUTIFUL--didn't want to leave. Manager and his teenage daughters were precious and very helpful and friendly. They set up a restaurant in the lodge that's open R-Su--good home cooked food, reasonable prices. The canned sodas were only 75 cents and there was 10 cent and 25 cent... More

This place is special. At the end of a long gravel road, it's an oasis in a exceptionally remote spot. It is clear it has great historic value and enormous potential. The new owners are working hard to find a way to make it profitable. I'm sure it's a big challenge. Unfortunately, the rates they have chosen could prove to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spirit Lake Lodge and its 9 cabins offers a rustic and truly authentic american camping and lodging experience. The lodge is situated at 10,200 feet above sea level in the High Uintah Mountains of north eastern Utah. Built in 1936, Spirit Lake Lodge has been a favorite spot for families and friends to enjoy nature, breath pristine air, and let cares go away! Enjoy roasting marshmellows on your own campfire just outside your personal cabin deck. Listen to the creek burbling next to your cabin. Stoke the woodburning stove in your cozy cabin while enjoying soft sheets and queen-sized beds. Spirit Lake Lodge is a true digital detox resort. Cell phones do not work here. (We have a mountain phone for emergencies.) There is no internet access or electricity to charge or power your devices. It is a chance to disconnect with the cyber world and re-connect with your family, friends, and nature. Enjoy fishing, bird watching, hiking or strolling through the forest, or playing board games with your family. It is a chance to renew relationships in the healing, healthy alpine atmosphere and marvel at the stars in the night sky ... more   less
