We are fortunate to have a facility as nice and accommodating as this so close to home! We will be repeat customers! Our cousins from Chicago can't wait until next time!

Lovely, quiet place, well kept & clean.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 night stay with our group of 22 , 11 of which were children. This is a child friendly place, and the pond was much used for swimming! There was lots of room in the kitchen and living room to accommodate us.

My whole family has been coming to this property for 6 years. It never disappoints.

  • 5 of 5

It feels like we're staying in our own 8 bedroom motel. It's located in a beautiful setting, wonderful accommodations and very clean. We'll be back again next year for sure.

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Lost Branch was an awesome place to stay! Enough room to accommodate all of the "Get- a-way with Grandma Bev" weekend! And even without tv, the kids were entertained by the "game room", and fishing and swimming in the "lake". The kitchen was well stocked with cooking housewares, and was glad for the extra refrigerator in the game room for soft drinks, etc. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom! We appreciated that when the weather was 98-101 degrees.

The grandkids think this is the greatest "get a way" place!

Thanks so much for sharing!

Hit the jackpot!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, fantastic, marvelous! We had a family reunion here and the people attending were 3 years old to 87 years old. Everyone can be spread out, enjoying different parts of the property or all together in the kitchen/living room area. The garage is a blessing for the little kids to play and run around in. Cleanliness and condition - A+! Owner & property manager - A+! (Could maybe use a few more outdoor and kitchen pieces of equipment, but that's very minor.)

It was a truly excellent facility that we all really enjoyed. Hope to come back for many years!

Peaceful, serene lodge in a beautiful setting that is great for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 generations of family from 4 states gather at Lost Branch Lodge in July 2017. We were all very pleased with the property and the amenities. The layout is great for large family/group gatherings, having plenty of indoor and outdoor entertaining space. The independent bedrooms and bathrooms work out well for having a variety of families come together, while still maintaining some personal space. The beach/pond were well received by all as the kids spent plenty of time down there swimming, fishing, and paddling around in the canoe (and we had plenty of catch-and-release opportunities as the fish were routinely biting).

A few notable family quotes:

Nephew running through the hallway - "This is the best vacation ever! It's like we rented out an entire hotel for ourselves!"

Parents - "This place is great! We should do this again next year."

Sibling - "I'm surprised that they supply so much stuff around the property. The kitchen is fully stocked, there are toys and games, and there are plenty of things to do inside and outside."

We will certainly be returning in years to come! Thanks!
