If you are seeking a beautifully designed & comfortably furnished lake-front lodge for your next get-together with family or friends, Otter Creek Lodge cannot be beat! Most guest rooms have their own bathroom, the house is very clean and the layout is phenomenal. I have stayed here approximately 10 times in the last decade with different families...most of whom have children. The lake and beach, game room and natural surroundings always keep the youngsters very entertained and most mark this location as their all-time favorite vacation. The huge, restaurant-style kitchen helps make cooking the meals fun . There are plenty of spaces...inside and out... to relax and catch up with friends...I have yet to find another spot that is as nice for larger gatherings. This is a remote and quiet setting...you cannot see any neighboring homes and rarely other people are on the lake as there are only 3 houses including Otter Creek on the lake. I have been to OC in the winter (30 below) and in the fall (85 & sunny!) and it does not matter the time of year it is always beautiful and there is always plenty to keep all ages entertained.
we arrived at the Otter Creek lodge on Sept 11th 2008. As we drove up the drive way we were so excited to see this beautiful vacation home that was being shared with our family. We created many lasting memories at this lodge, had many many laughs and had wonderful meals created in a very wonderful fully equipped kitchen with the best griddle ever. we picked native blueberries and made huge delicious pancakes on the oh so fabulous griddle. We had very competitive ping pong and pool tournaments. We played games ,cards and silly twister games. We swam in the private lake and had great campfires under a full moon. What a beautiful night it was. The men of the house loved the Huge Class A gas grill big enough to cook enough juicy ribbs you can imagine. Sharing dinners together was great. Having a dinning room table large enough to seat 23, what a pleasure no seperate kid table needed.If you "need" to do laundry well this house has the best laundry room, our daughter said it was the same amount of washers as her entire college .Do all your wash at once. 3 large loads all at the same time.
Well I could go on and on about this wonderful lodge. We will be back to take us away from the real world of all the natural stresses in life. If you want to make wonderful memories with family or you want a beautiful setting for a special occasion or even private time with a spouse this is the place. I hope you enjoy this specail place as much as we did.
