“Absolutely fabulous!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

What a find this place was and how glad we'd decided to spend 2 nights. The weather was perfect for enjoying the lake; kayaking, swimming, and lazing in the sun. Upgrading to a lake view was a great decision. the staff were so welcoming, making us feel like friends who had come to stay.
Thanks to Jackie for making those 2 nights on our 5 year anniversary trip so memorable.

Room Tip: Booka lake view if there's one available

My fiance, our children and my parents stayed at The Lodge at Blue Lakes for one night for a last minute birthday trip, no two night minimum is a plus as we only were able to get away for a Saturday night. The Lodge is well maintained, and on a beautiful little lake. We had a wonderful time making memories with the family and are considering having our wedding there, as we liked it so much and they seem to have reasonable all inclusive type packages. The owners were so nice, they gave our kids a big Toblerone (sp?) chocolate bar to share with the rest of us and made us feel very welcome without being overly intrusive. Very fun to go out on the lake with a complimentary kayak for an hour and they have electric boats that you can rent as well. We will be going back for sure, if not for our wedding just to enjoy the beautiful lake and the hospitality.

The Lodge at Blue Lakes was fantastic. The rooms were super clean, the grounds were amazing and the staff, FANTASTIC! Jackie, thank you for our birthday celebration and the hospitality you showed us! You put a lot of love in The Lodge at Blue Lakes. The kayaking on Blue Lake was so awesome. Saw several people coming back from fishing with lots of trout, so for you fishermen, it's a winner! We shall return soon! Daria

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at The Lodge! The staff was friendly and attentive (thanks, Jackie!), and the property is beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable, and it was quiet, too. Breakfast was delicious, and it was nice sitting outside on the deck, enjoying the meal, looking over the lake. We also took advantage of the one-hour of free kayaking, and I think that was my favorite part of the whole experience. We will be coming back!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money, and get a room overlooking the lake.

I stayed at this beautiful lodge during my stay in Lake County for a spring break trip. The facility provided was a perfect location. There was space for team building and conversing, and a comfortable and clean room for the much needed rest after our long days of service. The staff created a great and welcoming atmosphere which will never be forgotten. They will be a part of our memories forever!

I cannot say enough about the staff. Thank you for showing us an immense amount of kindness, hospitality and care. My team and I had such an incredible stay. We feel that the words "thank you" are not strong enough to express our appreciation. From the hot, fresh breakfasts in the mornings to the immense amount of accommodations and bending over backwards for our team, there truly are no words to describe our satisfaction and appreciation. They accommodated our crazy schedule and eating times and provided us with unforgettable and magical kayak rides even though we only had availability at six in the morning. The team at The Lodge at Blue Lakes made everything exceptional. Because of your excellence, we had the BEST experience possible!

We will definitely be staying here again! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND this resort!

Room Tip: I had a couples room all to myself and it was beautiful! All rooms are right off the lake so you can...

My wife and I have been coming to the Blue Lakes Lodge for over 40 years and have always had a great time in the area but particular we enjoy the fishing at the resort and on the lake. In the early years there was a massive turnover of management and the lodge deteriorated as little effort was made to upgrade the rooms. We missed about four years for that reason but about four or five years ago we decided to take another trip to Blue Lakes and booked another room.
Wow, were we surprised! The new owners, Peter and Maryann, had completed updated the lodge with a complete makeover and every room was renovated from the floor to the ceiling and the cleanliness of the rooms is impeccable. This has continued each year under their ownership and upgrades to the premises continue with additions of catering to whatever type of party books an event to the addition of electric water boats for cruising Blue Lake. Barbeque areas complete with gas grills picnic tables and onsite restroom facilities for day users, the Schmidts have made the Blue Lakes Lodge a wonderful place to stay. The swimming pool is always a great place to congregate and restaurants are within a few miles for those that decide to dine out. The Blue Wings restaurant in old town Upper Lake (about 5 miles) is an excellent dining experience and there are two Indian casinos within a ten minute drive from the lodge.
Overall, we will keep coming back to the Blue Lakes Lodge. They are friendly, attend to our needs, and work to accommodate our schedule. I would highly recommend anyone staying in the Blue Lake area to give the Blue Lakes Lodge a try. I am sure you will keep coming back!

Room Tip: Stay in the rooms with kitchenettes. They are away from most foot traffic and thus quieter.

I have been here 4 times now in less than 3 years. We love this place! Pool, lakes, 4 bbq's to choose from, free breakfast. Clean beautiful water & view. It a good 6 hour drive for us, but we keep coming back. No fast crazy boats all over the lake. You can rent kayaks, or slow electric yacht boats. You can swim almost anywhere and there are rope swigs along the sides of this lake.

Room Tip: If your staying a few night, get the kitchenette.
