This was our first time visiting the Broken Bow area, and first stay at Lakeview Lodge. We heard of the Lodge via a Groupon Deal. We paid $55 per night, which was a pleasant discount from the off-season rates of $85. The 2nd floor room accommodations consisted of 2 queen beds which accomodated my wife and I, and our teenage son. There was plenty of space for the 3 of us, though the bathroom can be quite "cozy" for two. Let's just say that you're going to take an elbow to the face if your wife is blow-drying her hair. Our balcony view of the lake was beautiful, and was even more exciting as a dozen deer were grazing "begging" from the grass below our room. We stayed a Thursday and Friday evening. Thursday was wonderfully quiet, as there were very few guests. Friday night was very busy as the Lodge filled up quickly, and the extra sounds of busy people, loud tv's, and heavy footsteps from the 3rd floor above us could easily be heard through the thin walls. I think we had a chain smoker above us, as we kept hearing the balcony sliding door opening and slamming shut. With that said, I will not be booking a stay during weekends or their busy season.
The continental breakfast was very basic, as described in other posts. We ate lunch and dinner in town. Stephen's Gap Restaurant (Informal Mom and Pop atmosphere) which is located about 5 minutes from the Lodge is adequate for an evening meal. I had the catfish (very good), my wife had a marinated steak salad (so...so), and my son had the chicken strips. Their pie is very good. As Grandma used to say..."Tastes like more". You must get some of the peanut brittle to go...yummy! The service was excellent! Note: THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH. They do have an ATM machine right inside the door. We ate lunches at Papa Poblanos and Pizza Hut in Broken Bow, about 15 minute drive from the Lodge. Food was fine and service was quick.
