Loved the lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering to see our daughter's graduation and the lodge was the perfect house for us. There was room for everyone and all the essentials. It was super cold outside but Brett plowed the road for us and checked on us to make sure we were okay. The fireplace was great, we loved the game room and used the sled boards. The cats and the chickens were a hit too. We enjoyed the jacuzzi but our only suggestion would be a vent for the chlorine fumes. We certainly will come back, hopefully when it's warmer, so we can enjoy the outdoor activities. Thanks for everything!

Memorable week

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at this beautiful location. Right on the lake, with lots of fish to catch. The house was a perfect size for our group of 22. The owners were very helpful in making sure the house had all the amenities that the listing said we would have. We highly recommend this location.

Mold , bugs, musty, overpriced

  • 2 of 5

Showers had mold in them. 2 of the three bathrooms were old and needed updating. No ventilation in bathrooms or hot tub room making them musty. Improper chemicals in hot tub and the children ended up with folliculitis. Mattresses in the lower bedroom were like box springs and very uncomfortable. Water softener was out of salt and hard water deposits were apparent on dishes. Bugs came out of the carpet onto the tile in the lower bathroom at night. Couches were broken and uncomfortable. The price listed on many websites were much cheaper than what they charged us.

Positives were updated carpet on family room. Ample dining space. Caretaker was friendly and helpful. Private lake dock. Beautiful view of lake.

Beware of this property.

Beautiful house on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Our family gathered here for a family reunion and we were so pleased. The owner was SO accommodating to all our questions and needs. We really enjoyed our own dock, being able to have tents and campers up, and the pool table area.

Ton of extras!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family. We had so much fun with all of the extra activities that were offered at Wakeside Lake. My kids rented SUP boards there and used them the whole week. They even went wake boarding at the Cable Factory Cable Park. We fished, sat by the fire, and enjoyed the indoor hot tub! I would recommend this place for anyone.
