Owners Jim and Karen are beyond delightful!! Knowledgeable of the area and give detailed outlines of top sites, locations, fishing spots, Aura and so much more! I travel extensively and have not met more accommodating and wonderful property owners. If you are coming this way you will be remiss not to book your stay here whether travelling on business, with family or couples. The cabins are immaculate and quite updated with whirlpool tubs! The grounds are beautiful and private access to the lake, canoes, paddleboat and so much more are here for you!

My partner and I had just lost our beloved Maine Coon cat the morning prior to our afternoon arrival at this remote little serenely beautiful spot. Jim and Karen the hosts sat with us for about an hour comforting us, sharing personal information about their own departed pets and making us feel like we had shared time with close family members. Everything in this cabin was clean, well supplied and convenient. BEST was the unobstructed view of Daniels Lake. We rowed out to see and photograph loons, we heard the calling of the loons, like in On Golden Pond, at 0430 am there was a loon and a pair of swan swimming in the soft morning light. Yes, Covid has made many things difficult, if not impossible, but this little place helped to begin healing our broken hearts.

Room Tip: An unobstructed view of the lake is perfect. You will awaken to the sound of the loons!

Thank you very much for everything, coming to stay, sharing your personal loss, letting us see your excitement when you heard your first loon and on top of it all, writing such a nice review.

We had our vacation booked in advance...then COVID hit. Since we were going to be traveling with our child, we decided it wasn't worth the risk, so cancelled about a month prior (things were obviously not going to improve). Everyone was so great about allowing us to rechedule. Except Daniels Lake. All of my requests to cancel went into a black hole. Nothing, no replies. Which means I was charged the FULL AMOUNT. All this means is next spring when we go back, we'll find somewhere else for our 14 day stay. Just beware, things are all good until you want to make a change. Then, good luck.

Oh my goodness, I would be upset if that happened to me too. Could you please send an email to us directly because we refunded everyone who did not want to transfer their deposit to a later date. By this review, I can't figure out who you are or I would reach out to you. The one guest with a child who cancelled was only charged a $10 fee to partially cover the credit card fees that we had to pay.

First time to visit Daniel’s Lake Lodge. My sister and brother-in-law have been visiting here for 13 straight years. They have been telling me how great the hosts, Jim and Karen are so I finally decided to see for myself. They are correct, they are wonderful hosts and their B&B is is a great place to stay. The view of Daniel’s Lake is breathtaking. The accommodations were clean and very accommodating. I plan to return next year.

We stayed in the two bedroom cabin near the lake and thoroughly enjoyed it...so much so that I really didn’t want to leave! That had to do with both the comfort of the cabin and the friendly hosts (Karen and Jim). We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. There are also nice rooms in the main house and the ability to do laundry. The view of the lake was so relaxing and had beautiful morning views! There’s a fire pit, hot tub and a dock with boats that can be rented. WiFi is very spotty, even though they try to move the extender. We usually had to go outside to pick it up. That said, a lovely, relaxing place to stay.
