Our family truly enjoyed our stay here. The lodge and surrounding lake and grounds are MORE than advertised. We really appreciated the private lake and use of the boats that the owners provided. We spent a lot of time on Parker Lake fishing and boating. Our 4 year old and 2 year old grandchildren had a fantastic time trying all the boats with us, and the rest of us enjoyed the privacy and relaxation that the lodge provided. All the reviews here I have read are accurate and describe the larger points so I want to point out other things that we appreciated: the great sleep we had on the quality mattresses on the bed; the well equipped kitchen with everything we needed to prepare meals; the space at the entrance to leave muddy shoes and wet towels; the grill and picnic area; the campfire spot; shade everywhere in the hot weather. My daugther-in-law said it was like staying with good friends, not just a vacation rental. We hope to be back as many times as possible.
