Our trip was amazing! The lodge is warm and inviting! Stocked with all you need for a great time! Lots of space to relax and unwind. The lake is great! Wildlife galore! Fishing was a perfect treat for our boys. We had a great father's day weekend reconnecting with our kids and grandfather. THANK YOU DAVE FOR BEING A TOP KNOTCH HOST! Trip couldn't have been better!

What an awesome home away from home. The lodge was PERFECT for our family reunion. Dave (owner) is also the nicest person ever and checked in with us occasionally to see if we needed anything. The cabin was actually built by him and has an amazing history. There were plenty of rooms and beds for everyone to sleep comfortably and the great room & kitchen area are very open. There is also a beautiful covered patio with porch swings and a firepit down the hill that we sat around each night. We will definitely be back for the next family gathering! Almost forgot...plenty of room to park your truck& boat! Thanks again Dave!!

Lakefront property. You have access to a boat dock and life is good.

We do have a volleyball court, horse shoe pits, washer pits and tether ball pole for other things to do on the property. There is also a castle playscape for the kids.

We are also open for longer term rental for snow birds in the winter. This is the perfect place for snow birds to get out of northern part of the country and enjoy warmer temperatures and the highland lakes area. Call for special rates for long term rental.
