Anyone who has ever been in love with the north woods can identify with this familiar trade off . . . comfort or camping. Either you get to be out in the wild and sleep on the ground, or you can opt for a bed and miss out a little on the true north. That compromise just doesn't apply at... More

We stayed for a week in the "shack". The resort was everything we hoped for. The cabin itself was clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The resort provided just the getaway that we needed. The resort provided a peace and tranquility that still lingers with us even upon our return home. We chose to dine at the lodge on a couple of... More

This past week my husband and I took our son, James (11), and daughter, Mia (9), to Loon Lake Lodge for a 7 day stay. I had my doubts about booking such an extended vacation, but it was difficult to pull ourselves away at the end of the stay! Right from the beginning Derek made us feel right at home,... More

Stayed in cabin 2 over Memorial Weekend. It was more than I expected. I truly loved my relaxing time and the call of the loons!!. The cabin was rustic and clean and just what you would expect from a resort with such a great long history. The new owners are the best people - very outgoing and caring. Derek and... More

Loon Lake Lodge is a great location to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and connect with nature. Derek and Andrea are so welcoming. The property is beautiful and relaxing. We came here to get away from screens, technology and to spend time together as a family unit. It was the perfect fit for all our desires.

We absolutely loved our time at Loon Lake Lodge! We stayed in "The Shack" which is an old log cabin at the far end of the larger property. Cabin was spacious and cozy. Location was very isolated and intimate. We hardly say anyone else during our stay. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. Easy access to Loon Lake -... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and it was exactly what we were looking for... a secluded cabin on a beautiful lake. It was great for fishing, for hiking trails, for seeing wildlife. Our cabin was clean, cozy, and comfortable. We enjoyed being able to take a boat out for fishing, and I caught the largest fish of my life.... More

The entire resort was well kept, the shack was very clean, the beds were comfortable , the pontoon was like new and the staff was top notch. It would be hard to find a nicer resort for the price. Best of luck to the new owners...see you next year!
