“Great for Family Reunion”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

We stayed in cabin #5 at the Dutch Lake Resort for four nights Aug. 20-24. This cabin faced the lake but you could not access it from in front because of all the lily pads in that area of the lake. There were two warfs close by that you could jump off and swim to another floating dock on the lake. You could also rent a canoe or peddle boat for $10 an hour. This cabin was old and crooked, except for the kitchen looked like a newer addition to it. Although it was old it suited our needs just fine and was clean upon arrival. That being said, housekeeping was not part of the price, you clean yourself while you are there You could go to the office and exchange your towels as often as you like and get more toiletries but you must do your own dishes before leaving or they charge you. There are recycling bins outside each cabin to put your bottles in and a garbage can and they collect that daily each morning. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes. It had a separate bedroom with one double bed and one single bed. The separate living room had the kitchen table in it, and a sofa bed and T.V. There is a fire pit and BBQ outside of the cabin, and I think there was one for each cabin. There is not grass outside of the cabins, there was gravel and the type of dirt that sticks to your skin because it is so fine, and that type of dirt was throughout the area of the cabins which was really messy. There is a playground area that did have grass up near where the campground area is, that also had the washroom/showers. There is a laundry area too. Free wireless internet available and it looked like the office had a computer you could use. There is a restaurant called The Painted Turtle on site and you are given a free continental breakfast coupon for each day you stay in the cabins. We didn’t eat at it other than the breakfasts because it was very costly. We were there for a Family Reunion and it was a great area to be, however the cost of the place to not include housekeeping didn’t seem right.

We loved our stay in the trapper cabin. We were there for two nights and slept with our screen door open. Found the air conditioners not to be too effective but the cabin was so cute. We are booking a second weekend soon. Can't wait to get out in the lake.

My family and I stayed in TeePee 2 for one night. I can't wait to go back. The accomodations were not fancy but having a kitchenette was great. The A-frame was very clean and we enjoyed having the air conditioning. My son loved sleeping in the loft! Our bed was very comfortable.

We loved the quiet morning overlooking the lake and watching the loon family, duck family and the lilies open. A nice walk along the water's edge made for great picture taking. There is a nice swimming area for older children and boats for rent.

We can't wait to come back next year to take advantage of the boats and try the restaurant. We will stay in a larger cabin next time, as we will be staying for a longer time and would appreciate the extra room. The A-frame would be great for a short stay or for a small family.

This is a great place for a relaxing few days away from it all.

What a gem of a place. I had booked this online using their photos as a guide and I was not disappointed. We stayed in the Moose cabin right on the lake, with its own balcony and barbeques etc. There were less cabins that I had imagined and apparently Moose is the most popular and I can see why. It will comfortably sleep 8 and is well stocked. It si also disabled friendly with a wide ramp up to the balcony and the main entrance. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. We wer kept entertained by the local ducks, loons and other birdlife. The lake abounds with fish and is safe to swim in.
We soent a very rainy day just sitting on the balcony just lapping up the view of the lake with the mountains in the background.

Wells Gray National park is a 10 minute drive away but be warned you need very strong insect repellent the mozzies in the park are viscious. Had no trouble with them on site.

We did not use the on site restauarant which looked lovely and the menu sounded delicious as it was a bit above our budget level. We just made the most of the barbeques.

  • Liked — Very clean and well stocked.

We left our booking late so could only get an A-Frame and given how hot and sunny it was, a small and cramped corrugated tin A-Frame cabin with 1 fan was scorching inside. Lovely spot overlooking the lake but the decor had seen better days and with no air circulation, we decided we would get little sleep in the heat even though the owners said it would cool down later. Compared to other cabins we stayed in, this was disappointing although cheap at $90 + tax per night. we stayed at a nearby motel with AC and about the same price with lake views which suited us much better.

I am sorry you were not satisfied with your accommodations. The Aframes are the least expensive cabin on our property for this reason. We have since installed air conditioning in the Aframes and they have new beds. We try to improve each year. Thank you for your comment.
