Lost Creek Resort
Reviewed September 18, 2012

My wife and I having been going to Waskesiu in the Fall for 10 years now and have stayed at the Lost Creek Resort for the past six years. It is great. We have everything we need there as the cabin and kitchen are fully equipped - all appliances, BBQ, satellite TV and wireless and also 2 hot tubs adjacent to the cabin we always get. We come to relax, play golf at one of the wonderful courses and to just completely alter our schedule. The cabin is always clean and well prepared and we always look forward to this as our primary holiday of the year.

My family and I have been staying at Lost Creek Resort every year since they opened and have never had any issues - ever - we absolutely love it there. The owner Gord keeps everything running smoothly. The cabins are always very clean and kept up to date. The cabins come with everything you could possibly need there from wine glasses, bread and steak knives, salt and pepper, dish soap, plenty of towels, propane barbeque on the deck with all the necessary tools, bedding is always very clean, never worn out. The decorating inside each cabin is very quaint and homey - extra little touches that you won['t find at other cabins alot of times. The cabins are air conditioned and have fireplaces as well, DVD player, satellite tv, deck on every cabin. There are two hot tubs at the resort and a social fire pit with lots of chairs and forks for marshmellows/hotdogs, loungers which we have used during the day to lay out in the sun, tables, etc.

The elk are always present at the resort. If we have every had an issue, it is taken care of quickly - we never have had to wait. The resort is a short walk into town so we love the location. You can walk to the beach as well (about 15 minutes or a bit longer), but we tend to have too much stuff to drag along! There are tons of walking trails right close to Lost Creek from easy to hard depending on what you want. Waskesiu has been our favorite summer spot for the last 25 years and we will still be going for the next coming years.

The prices are high for some people, but in comparison to alot of other cabins we have stayed at through out Saskatchewan - they are comparible.

Where do I start! This place is not customer friendly. I called and made a reservation early in the week wanting to get away from it all. I called to clarify whether or not whether pets were permited, they told me no. When we pulled up at the office to check in, a big black dog walked into the office, and later on during our stay we noted other small dogs wandering around the resort. Obviously, they are not reinforcing this policy.

As for the cleanliness of the cabins I confere with the other reviews. Bug carcasses and guts on windows and walls. The beds were uncomfortable and squeeky. We pulled out the hide-a-bed and there was a matress cover on it that was covered in body fluids. We had to make the bed prior to use, after I removed the mattress cover. They never turned on the air conditioning prior to arrival so it was very hot when we arrived. There are not enough curtains to cover the windows to keep the heat out and ensure privacy. No black out blinds or bedside lamps in the bedrooms. The kitchen countertops was pulling away from the wall and not secured properly The fire extinguisher was stored under the sink in the very back, not accessible at all, the cupbaord was not labelled indicating the location of the fire extinguisher. I am not even sure if the fire extinguishers are inspected annually and recharged as per recommendations. The hot tubs that are on site appear to be for residential and not commercial use. I did not go it them because I had no idea how often the water is changed or how often the chemical levels are monitored. I would not risk the chance of getting an infection from submerging myself in this water after seeing the uncleanliness of the cabin. There was operation of a bobcat near one of the hottubs. The operator of the bobcat was not wearing any PPE and the work area was not marked off for customer and children's safety.

Very overpriced for over $300+/ night. There was broken glass outside of the cabin we stayed at, not good if you have kids. The grass was not cut around the cabin.

We had to check out early and I notified the office immediately that day at noon, The lady at the front desk was unfamiliar with the resorts early checkout policy so she told me that her boss would call me. He did that evening, 10 hours later to inform me that I would be charged for the additional night that I was not staying. There was no early check out or cancellation policies in the cabins to reference, the owner/ operator said that the policy is clearly outlined on the website and in the brochures that were not in the cabin either! He was buligerant and condescending when I pointed this out to him. He said that if he was able to rebook the night that we were not staying he would refund the extra night. For all the customers, how do we know that they are not charging twice for the same nights accomodations. This is what they call customer service?

We left early in the morning and went to the office to checkout and no one was there. So we left the keys in the cabin.

Save yourself the stress and stay somewhere else!

Room Tip: Be aware of that the cancellation policy corresponds is the early checkout policy. Stay somewhere el...

Alas, Lost Creek is not meeting expectations for the high prices. Yep, bug and fly swatted guts on walls and windows....and we arrived to find over a hundred dead bug carcasses on window sills-yuck! Ottoman broken, dishwasher does not clean dishes adn mattresses squeak like they're twenty years old. Picnic table moved by a exhaust spewing tractor gagging us as we are trying to enjoy the outdoor grass. Maybe good for a hunting camp rental but not worth the high rent.

If I had posted a review several years ago when I first started staying at Lost Creek, I would have given at least four stars. Our most recent visit was seriously sub par for what I would expect when shelling out over $300 per night at the lake.

It seems as though a few years of poor maintenance have taken a toll on what used to be lovely new cabins. There are bug guts all over the walls and ceilings, dead bugs on the floor and windowsills and layers of yuck in the bathroom. The carpets are filthy and the furniture and kitchenwares are dingy. I know this is supposed to be lake living, but for the prices they charge, I would expect much much more. There is also little to no bedroom storage, so no place to unpack and get some clutter out of the way. Brutal with small children!

We will not be returning to Lost Creek. Besides having a poor experience, the location isn't great for children since it is a long walk or a car ride to the beach and playground. There are so many other lovely places to stay at Waskesiu, I recommend you do the same!

Room Tip: If you do book at Lost Creek, try to get a cabin that doesn't have sun streaming through the lar...

Stayed at lost creek in September for a bike race. Cabins are newer looking, very clean and comfortable. Sat tv in every one. There are 2 outdoor hot tubs on the property and each cabin as a deck and gas BBQ. Enjoyed my stay very much.
