Enjoyed a fantastic stay at Todd's place on the lake. He was a great host who was very knowledgable about the area. What to see and do and how to avoid some of the traveling problems of the area. We not only enjoyed his great Lodge/home we got to see many area that are dear to him and Peg. Paradise outside of Christmas was our favorite destination. We enjoyed alittle wine and campfire on our last night at Paradise. Back at the lodge for a very late fire in the fireplace was the exclamation point. Great stay, great accomodations and very good host. Can't say more about the the area and how great of a time we had. Sydney's Restaurant offered very good food at darn near poverity prices. Don't know how they do it. Great prices locally except for gas. I would recommend Powell Shores Lodge to just about anyone. We were there for snowmobiling however the lake looked great too.
