Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely place for our family gathering we loved the water trampoline and other water crafts. The hot tub was really nice as we had some chilly weather during our week. Swimming across the lake was also very fun.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for several days after a family wedding. It was so great to be able to all stay together. The Lodge was fantastic--beautifully decorated and spotless. All amenities were included, there are even shampoo, conditioner and shower gel dispensers in each bathroom.

It was peaceful and quiet and the lake is gorgeous.

Misty and Bonnie were great to work with. It was so easy to book, all the paperwork was handled quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this incredible Lodge to everyone.

Amazing cabin, amazing view, tons of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at the Lakeside Lodge Cabin on Big Hills Lake during our bachelor party 9/09 thru 9/11 and it was amazing! The house itself is gorgeous and had PLENTY of room for everyone - we had 16 adults altogether. The view of the water was beautiful, and having all of the kayaks, canoe, and paddle boat available for use was so much fun! The lake was surprisingly fairly clear, and quite warm still, even as the outside temps only reached about 65 during our stay. The fire pit set-up was perfect and the lounge chairs were awesome. Loved having the hot tub as well. The downstairs game room was put to good use, and it was stocked with cards and board games as well! Having a fully-stocked kitchen (plates, bowls, utensils) came in handy and the center island was huge! Perfect for entertaining and preparing meals to grill on the deck, which we did. The great room with the exposed rafters, stone fireplace, and two-story vaulted veiling with the loft overlooking was beautiful! I can't say enough great things about our stay, we would definitely recommend this place for anyone that needs a house big enough for large families/parties. Nearest local grocery store was only about 7 minutes away, and larger stores/restaurants were about a 20 minute drive to Wautoma - so location was not too bad either! Hope to be back next year!

Amazing lakehouse with everything you could possibly need on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best lakehouse I've ever stayed at. Bonnie and Misty were wonderful hosts that have all bases covered for their lakehouse: Amazing views of the lake, a hot tub, updated kitchen, ping pong table, kayaks, canoe, paddleboat, towels, firepit, games, literally EVERYTHING. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Had such a great time there. Also the sky at midnight is so full of stars it is incredible. Thank you Bonnie and Misty!

Perfect weekend getaway for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We came with a group of 16 friends and had an amazing time at this cabin! There was plenty of room for all of us, and the amenities were fantastic. We spent most of our time enjoying the water trampoline, kayak, canoes, fire pit, and jacuzzi. We barbecued for all of our meals and enjoyed the deck and outdoor areas. I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing weekend getaway.

Thank You!!!

  • 5 of 5

I NEVER write reviews but I feel I have to share how wonderful our stay was because of the place and the excellent service we received!!! The place was clean the the kitchen is very well stocked. We had a freak accident our first night, a light fixture fell and smashed in one of the bedrooms. Bonnie came over at 10:30 at night to clean it up. She was so sweet. We mentioned that we may need a little more toilet paper. Bonnie came the next morning with the toilet paper and fresh baked cookies! We can't wait to come back in summer when we can enjoy the lake and hot tub!
