The Gateway Lodge is across the street from a BP gas station at the entrance to the town of Land O' Lakes, WI (or "Lando" to the locals.) It is a traditional hunting lodge, with its own restaurant inside. Having a restaurant is a huge bonus, as dining establishments are rather scarce around Lando. You won't find any typical fast...

Rustic and traditional. Rooms were clean and well-maintained. Restaurant experience was magnificent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The April half-price special was much appreciated. We'll come back!

Great place to stay for a snowmobile trip. Half the group flew up in King Air, and found room to hanger it. Walked to the Lodge. Rented sleds across the street. Walking distance. Also a few hundred yards away is the BP gas station. They sell Wi. And Michigan trail permits. Very handy. The lodge staff is nothing but helpful... More

The room we reserved for the night of our wedding was not available despite confirming the room twice prior to the wedding. The staff and manager were less than apologetic. Total lack of customer service skills. After asking for a resolution the groom and I were offered a different room with two twin beds and "maybe we could get a... More

When we first pulled up, I was worried about what this place was going to be like. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. When they handed us the keys (Real Keys) I started to get a little worried again. We drove around to the entrance for the room and went inside. It was like taking a step... More

It's a great getaway, we'll be back. It is not for the snooty though. Yes, there are "mounted deer heads" everywhere, as I read in someone else's review. You're in the north, there are going to be dead animals. LOL. Because of the metal roof and the location, the cell service and internet are not great, but, remember: GETAWAY. Trap... More

I was a bit worried by all of the reviews. Yes this place is older and has mounts all over but once you get past it, not so bad. It's not the Ritz but an average good, CLEAN hotel. Our room wasn't fully updated, but nothing to scream about. The great room is a neat place to gather by the... More

The Gateway Lodge is the kind of place you stay in solely to write a TripAdvisor review. There is a collection of mounted deer heads right above the entrance, a moose and a bison on the opposite wall, a lynx above the continental breakfast bar, and several other smaller mammals tucked into other areas of the lobby. Oh, and there’s... More

According to a previous review, I guess we got one of the misses when we stayed in a suite. The bed was awful and we slept very poorly. The place has charm and lots of potential. The front lodge room has a huge fireplace, chairs, small tables for playing cards, and sofas. The pool is in a separate building and... More
