Awesome Up North Getaway!
We had a great time at the Carlin Lodge! We had 18 people up north to have a family reunion and pay our respects to my dad who passed away last summer. We used the whole lodge and two hotel rooms. That made it really easy and flexible to book because the hotel is just steps away from the house - it felt seamless! The house is amazing. It's solid wood and feels like a movie set! The logs are picturesque! The kitchen is quaint and worked great. It had everything we needed from saran wrap to cookie sheets! We brought paper plates, but you don't need to - there are a ton of plates and silverware and the dishwasher works well!
We lucked out with just beautiful weather! The lake was warm and clear and we swam all day! There is a great pier with steps to enter the water with kayaks and a paddle board. Kept us all busy all day! You can easily kayak the whole lake. I even swam across the lake (with a boat guide) it was so clear and inviting! The fishing was great, too! The kids caught a lot of bass and bluegill. We had loads of bullfrogs, two loons and lots of stars at night! It's just beautiful there.
You do need to embrace the north woods there though. It isn't super close to Boulder Junction but is to Presque Isle. That wasn't a big deal for us since we knew all of that from spending so much time up there. We just planned our dinners and brought all our groceries for the most part. Definitely used designated drivers :) . If you did have bad weather you'd be fine because there were games and puzzles, a huge fire place, and great tv with cable! You'd be all set! I hate to talk it up because I'd love to keep it for myself! The only thing I'd recommend is a washer and more importantly a clothes dryer. With a lot of swimming and the weather up there, having a way to dry towels would be helpful, but that's it! It is a great house and Jim and Betsy made booking a breeze!
Short stay for a wedding funtion. Also used boats for fishing. Had good luck.
perfect northwoods experience
The lodge is a perfect northwoods experience. We had 6 guys on a sledding weekend and the lodge was just right. plenty of beds and the fireplace room is amazing! The owner JIm is very responsive and accomodating. I highly recommend Carlin Lake Lodge.
Beautiful turn of the century log cabin
Beautiful / historic cabin on Lake Carlin.
It was a pleasure having your group stay at The Carlin Club Lodge...After a "Cold Day" in the woods hunting, I am sure the big fireplace played a roll in warming up again. I wish you would have had more luck in "Harvesting" a few bucks, but I am sure part of the"Hunt" is the camaraderie experienced by all!!
Thanks again For choosing the Carlin club Lodge.
Perfect setting for an up north get away
Our family loved our stay at the Carlin Lodge. The owners are super kind. Carlin Lake was amazingly clear and peaceful. We enjoyed fishing, pontooning, kayaking, paddleboarding and smores by the bonfire. A perfect get away from the city. We hope to return someday.
Thank you for your great review of the Carlin Club Lodge. We try to enhance our guests stay here by providing access to the items you describe in your review. It is such a pleasure to see our guests have the opportunity to escape to the Northwoods and get to step back to some of the more simple things in life!!!
Thank you again for choosing the Carlin Club Lodge!!!
Great location for our family vacation. Owners were very friendly and helpful
The lake is private and a great place to get away. Plenty of fish to catch and good swimming. The house was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would return for another vacation. Thanks Jim
Thank you so much for the great review. The Carlin Club Lodge and Carlin Lake are real "Treasures" and I am very pleased that our facility met all your expectations. The Historic Lodge and the "Gin Clear" water of Carlin Lake provides an opportunity to experience life out of the fast lane and allows groups like yours to have a memory that will bring a smile every time you look back at your time here!!...Once again, Thank you for choosing the Carlin Club Lodge!!
Jim and Betsy
