We just returned from our 4 day vacation at Kossow Lodge. All 18 adults and 2 children had a wonderful time!! What a beautiful, cozy lodge the Eatons have created. The place is huge and accomodated our group quite well with room to spare. Everyone loved the fireplace, the pool table and ping pong and of course for some peaceful, quiet time the huge porch was a favorite. The master bedroom was very cozy and what a beautiful view. So much to do in the winter. We even had an engagement happen at the lodge...what a surprise!! Thank you Nancy & Deke for making our stay at your lodge so memorable!

This is the second year we have enjoyed this amazing lodge! What a place to spend time with family and friends! Being the mother of a toddler, I can not say enough about how Nancy and Deke made my life easier by placing a crib, three pack n'plays, and several high chairs in the lodge! It was very appreciated; thank you so much!! We are looking forward to seeing you again next year!

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful visit that had to end way to soon. Would love to come again and see it in the summer and fall. Maybe we can work out a trade with you for our home in Pinetop, AZ.

02/15/04 Our stay at the lodge was spectacular.My whole family couldn't believe how nice it was.The adults enjoyed the beautiful outdoor views, walks on the frozen lake, the warmth in front of the fire and the overall feeling of family that is so present at the lodge. The children were so entertained with ping pong, the playroom, the sledding and skating. The lodge is so roomy, we had at one point 14 adults and 6 children there. At no point did anyone feel too close for comfort. It was certainly a wonderful vacation and we can't wait to go back next year. Thankyou!

We had a fantastic time at Kossow Lodge!! The house is very large...17 of us stayed there and we were able to spread out and actually had to look for each other. There is a very huge porch on the back of the house overlooking the lake that we enjoyed tremendously! Our children were on the lake swimming, boating, fishing, etc. until dark and then it was ping pong and pool in the basement. We traveled 600 miles from Virginia and it was well worth it! The lake is beautiful and the home is very well kept. The owners are wonderful people and very hospitable.

Our family had a great time at Kossow Lodge. On first entering, the excitement level was high. What a beautiful place. Everyone was very comfortable and we had tons of fun. When I asked everyone their favorite part of our vacation I got many different responses. From jumping off the dock or swimming with the ducks to playing cards in the "game nook" or sitting on the back porch and watching the lake to trying to beat Uncle Rick in ping-pong. We also had some great basketball and volleyball games. The lodge has plenty of room so everyone could get together and watch the Sox or everyone could find their own special space. We had a blast!!

Thanx Deke and Nancy.

We had a wonderful time at the lodge. Our lobster bake was a hit and the beauty of the lake was breathtaking. The kids and adults are already asking to go back next year. We were very pleased with the Eaton's hospitality and the lodge had literally everything we needed to make our stay a memorable one. Thanks again Nancy & Deke

Kossow Lodge is a truly remarkable place. The Eatons are incredibly sweet and helpful; the lodge is impeccably clean and unbelievably well-appointed - anything you could possibly want is there. The location is quiet, the sunrise breathtaking, and the fireplace tremendous. We had a large group come for the weekend, and the only negative comment I heard was that the time was too short. Hopefully we'll be able to come back again next year - thanks Nancy and Deke for a fantastic weekend!
