Our family has been going to Elbow Lake Lodge since 1966, formerly Kennedy's Rustic Resort. There is a tranquility to Elbow Lake that is hard to describe. Whenever we go there, it's truly like going to visit family - Lee, Dan, Mackie go out of their way to ensure that you feel welcome, and have the most relaxing time while...

Loved the cabins, very clean, well furnished, and comfortable. The food and drinks were delicious! There's a lot to do on the lake, mini golf, campfires and enjoying nature. Staff will help with whatever you need. Definitely would like to go back!

We enjoyed our week stay in a lodge suite. The staff was great (although we didn't ask for much) but the owners need to spend a few dollars to add a few more amenities (kleenex, better T.P., better room lighting - that kind of thing.)

They kindly allowed the kids in...

We have been going to Elbow Lake Lodge since 1980 with our entire family. The cabins have everything you need except A/C which is not needed. The beach is great for kids, the restaurant has great food and the staff is the best you are ever going to find! The fishing is so great. Have a large family fish fry...

My family has been coming to Elbow Lake for over 70 years. We have stayed at Elbow Lake Lodge (formerly Kennedy's Resort) as well as owning cabins on the lake. The current management of Lee, Mackie, and Dan are the best. They work hard for the resort guests and make sure the lake owners are taken care of too. The...
