The place is completely run down and the grounds are so unkempt that walking was difficult at best. The building burnt a couple of years ago and all they have done is wipe the walls off in places. We were first sent to a cottage...More

We reserved one night as a stop for a long journey. Once we arrived, we couldn't believe how amazing the whole location was! For the affordable price of the lodge, I was baffled at how beautiful, private and resourceful the place was. We had our...More

This is a great place to get away from it all. My family and I booked this location because our original hotel could not accommodate us. Granted, I was a bit apprehensive about a cottage but now I'm hooked. The cottages are right on the...More

+ The location is lovely and yet is not too remote. The room was well kept, equipped and clean. There were several groups renting the property, but at around 10pm everybody got quiet. - Our bed was too soft and thus uncomfortable to sleepMore

About
Description
With a main lodge and nine cottages, Echo Lake Lodge and Cottages offers a classic lakefront vacation. We have many shared amenities such as a sandy beach and swim float, several boats, a firepit (wood provided), ...More and gas grills. We welcome group rentals, events, weddings, reunions, leaf peepers, hunters, fishermen, etc. The lodge has 8 bedrooms. Some have private bathrooms, others share. Our living room is filled with comfortable seating, a piano, and a fieldstone fireplace. We offer a wide selection of books, games, and toys for all ages. The front porch features rocking chairs and a ping pong table, while the game room holds a pool table. Our expansive deck has bench seating, picnic tables, an event-size gas grill, and has our wheelchair lift. Nine rustic cottages have quick access to the lakefront. In varying sizes, they sleep from 2 to 5 people. Each cottage has a private bathroom and well-equipped kitchenette. All have either a deck or screened porch, some have both! Gas grills and picnic tables are available for your use. Many tall hemlocks provide shady spots while our lawn and beach area gets good sun all day. Fish from our docks and waterfront for bass, sunfish, and the like, or take one of our boats out to seek trout, splake, and others. Drive 30 minutes in several directions for excellent golf, disc golf, horseback riding, antiquing, fine dining, zoos, and museums. In the winter, we are less than a mile from several snowmobile trails with easy access to the ITS system. Several cross country ski areas with groomed trails are close by, downhill ski areas are a 45-minute drive. Our property and lake offer the opportunity to break your own trails on skis or snow shoes, and we have a small collection of equipment available for you to use. Staying with us is easy. Options include single rooms and suites in the lodge or one of the cottages for just one night, or as long as you want to stay. Lodge guests get limited kitchen privileges. Catered meals can be arranged. Group rentals of the lodge make the building yours exclusively, with a 2-night minimum stay. We can accommodate groups up to 50 people during the warmer months (May - Oct), and up to 20 during the winter. Less
