We stayed as a family, along with our extended family group. We had 6 rooms all together. Very nice secluded setting on a beautiful lake, we enjoyed the riding the pedal boats. The dinner cookout at the pavilion was good, also the breakfast buffet was simple, but good. The banana splits were good! We really enjoyed the hot tub in... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2015

We stayed for my husband's birthday celebration. We were greeted upon check-in by one of the owners who warmly greeted us, showed us on a map where our room was located, assigned our dinner time (asking will that work for you), told us about the banana split time, breakfast time and told us he was glad we had come. Our... More

The Shack is set in a beautiful area on a small lake. It has a very "lodge" atmosphere. The staff was friendly. The dinner that comes with the price of your stay was ok, as well as the breakfast buffet. The best part of the Shack is the beautiful view from the back porch area, out toward the lake. We... More

Staff was very accommodating. Party of 50 came in, and all were treated as individuals. Buffet was simple but good. Quiet area that has many benches tucked away to sit and watch the scenery. The included banana plaits were a bonus, dipped by a guy that has been doing it for over 30 years. We were pleasantly surprised to get... More

What great potential this place has for a wonderful getaway! A lake, a great pitch, a rustic building and banana splits! The grounds are spectacular. There's a museum, a sugar shack and many beautiful outbuildings that are well Maintained. You could spend hours just watching the water skiers and boaters. Unfortunately, there are areas that need attention: *Rooms in the... More

We went to The Shack for a couple's retreat. Loved it. We had a non lake view room with a jacuzzi. The room was comfortable. Room service simply replaces towels and empties trash so don't expect hotel service. There also is no room service. Meal times are limited and it is buffer style. The Shack is a large facility but...

A wonderful place to get away from it all. Very peaceful and relaxing. The grounds are beautifully maintained with a walking trail and lake. No beach. They do have paddle boats. Across the lake is the public access if you have any other watercraft. The owner and staff were great. They made you feel very welcome. Our room had that... More

The rooms were fairly priced and very clean. It was a quiet facility for one that is so large. They have plenty of entertainment from paddle oats on the lake to shuffleboard and ping pong. Great meals are offered. On the other hand, the decoration is a little quirky. There is a museum on site that is almost never open... More
