We stayed at Lakedale Resort for the first time this past weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday. They arranged a contactless check in with all the instructions needed. When I made my reservation, I asked for the best Yurt possible and that's what I got: Yurt #4. Perfect, quiet, secluded and right by the water. We might have gotten lucky because it was not a busy weekend at the resort, so it was super quiet and peaceful. The yurts are amazing, clean, cozy - we didn't want to leave. The staff was super helpful and friendly. It's not cheap but it's worth it. I would love to go back.
This place was absolutely amazing. They know customer service or what. They called me the week before, the day before and several times the day that I was arriving. They wanted to check on me to make sure everything was fine. It was a no self contact check-in. When we arrived, they had our envelope outside with our name on it. It had our keys in the envelope and what room number we were in. We were able to collect our stuff and use the key to open the front door of the lodge. We walked upstairs and found our room. The room was beautiful, had a balcony to watch over the lake. The room itself, the shower / tub that was large enough for me to sit in is a rarity being 6-7. Each morning they provide breakfast to the members of the lodge. It's a complimentary. They have a pancake maker, milks from soy, 2% to Almond. Cereal, snack items, etc; Then you will meet the nicest staff member ( now they're all very nice ) Mary Ann (I believe was her name), she makes an Omelet with potatoes every morning. She asks what you want and she provides it was hot sauce and other sauces. Every morning we ate there and chatted with her. She provided us items to do around the island. This was our 5th visit to the island in 6 years and 4th in a row. We had did most of the items, except a couple that she mentioned that we didn't do. We learned that the lodge was on 82 acres of properly. We did do a small hike around the property. You have the 3 lakes, but they have 8 log cabins that I counted, Yurts, Airstreams, tents and many other ways to stay on the site. They even have a small general store where you can purchase items from alcohol to food, drinks etc; it's open 9-5 daily. It was our first time staying here. I was very impressed with the place. You were required to wear masks on site. In addition to them having the lodge 50% occupancy. Let me tell you they have wine available. If it's after hours when the staff is gone, you just pick your wine and write down your name, what you took and your room#. How amazing is that. They had some great local wine available. Overall I was extremely impressed with this place. I want to stay here again, next time luck out and get a cabin and bring my entire family. The staff has to be the friendliest I've ever encountered. Keep up what you're doing. You're rocking it..…
Our log cabin was impeccably clean and comfortable. Everything was provided for a functional kitchen, and the bed was very comfortable. A cozy gas fireplace added to our experience. The location on the lakes was great. We would definitely stay here again.
We recently held our annual office retreat at Lakedale, taking advantage of the 7 yurts for our 7 employees and their families. The private lawn area was set up with tables for us to socially distance and meet safely as a group. The yurts are unbelievably cozy and wonderful - we didn't want to leave. Such a memorable stay for everyone. We're already planning next year's return.
Stayed for one night two years ago and again recently. Would absolutely stay again! Resort grounds has an old east coast private resort feel which we enjoyed, but in a log cabin. All types of sleeping accommodations for different budgets and preferences if multiple couples are staying, which is very unique!
