The good: Staff was very friendly at checkin. They had chips & salsa in the common area around 5:00. The woman at the front said they did this on weekdays. Plenty of breakfast options. Waffles, eggs with cheese & ham mixed in, fresh fruit, real oatmeal w/all the fixings...
We had a poolside room. It's definitely a bit noisy, but really not too bad. It was perfectly quiet after 10:00 & we didn't hear anything again until 8: am. The bed is firm, but comfortable. (See pillows under the bad section below)

The not so good: Room is reasonably clean, but looks very run down. It has peeling wallpaper, the carpet is old & stained, lots of damage that has bare minimum repairs done.

The bad: I'm pretty sure they put an elephant in the room above ours. The pillows are thin & really uncomfortable. The pool & hot tub area are not very clean. Mold on the tile & cloudy water. The "waterfall" is an overflow from the hot tub.

Stayed: August 2016, traveled with family

This was a last minute choice, and I usually stay at two other places when in the area. This was an excellent choice. The price was right, they keep the property top notch clean, and the service was friendly, made you feel so welcome. They go out of their way to accommodate you any way they can. THe breakfast was great. There was something for everyone, and plenty of it. I cannot say enough good things about the place! My trip was not for pleasure but several days of medical visits, they made me feel so much better by being so down home friendly. Being from the midwest this is not only appreciated but expected for us to re visit hand pass the word on. They have my business in the near future. Do yourself a favor check this out, you will be pleasantly surprised!

This was the first time we had stayed here and were well pleased. The front desk attendants were very friendly and very helpful. Our room had the North woods décor including four boat paddles on our wall. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. We used the hot tub and pool. The temperature of the pool was perfect. When we checked in we received a ticket for a free drink in the evening. They had beer, wine and soft drinks. They also had some snacks during the evening. The breakfast buffet had scrambled eggs cooked right in front of us, biscuits and gravy, cooked oatmeal, pastries, fruit, toast, etc. We will be staying there again when we travel that way. Excellent overnight stay. We had a microwave and refrigerator in our room.

Beautiful lodge with a northwest woods feel to enjoy an outstanding breakfast. Front desk superb, helpful in every respect. Rave reviews for the rooms. Location close to interstates yet set in an almost woodsy area. Highly recommend.
