Nothing good to say.

I have nothing good to say about this place. Their website is outdated. And it was very disappointing upon my arrival. In fact I left the lodge. I didn't feel safe. There's nothing else I can say about this place. Except a big disappointment TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

I wouldn’t stay here again even if it was free!!! You will be severely disappointed and disgusted!!! The first thing we see is a shirtless man with tattoos everywhere and a knife hanging from his belt hanging around the empty forsaken pool which is surrounded by dead grass. The the room smelled on contact and had an oven where the paint was scratched off in some places and the vent was through a cut in the screen, the bathroom floor was squishy and the bathtub was rusty and looked dirty. I slept on the covers as I was afraid the sheets haven’t been washed in a while. Do yourself a favor and avoid at all costs. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

It was less than ok

I would not recommend this place. At first it seemed nice the gentlemen had the heat on for us, but advised we didn't turn it off. The room appeared clean at a quick first glance, but after we settled in...the floor was lumpy and carpet was thin and dirty...the carpet had a shard of glass right next to the bed. The lights were flickering on and off. The water in the kitchen flooded the room. When we returned from snowboarding all day my mom informed me the dishes in the dishwasher were filthy so she wanted to hand wash them, this was when the water flooded. The gentlemen pulled out the dishwasher and temp fixed something which left the room smelling like vomit. She said she had to scrap the microwave clean in order to heat up the little ones food.The counter I wiped off and it was black. The bathtub didn't drain well and there were rat hotels and sticky mouse traps. I have literally paid $40 a night and stayed in cleaner places. It was hard to find someone in the office after we checked in so we never did get the breakfast either. I asked the gentlemen when I finally reached someone about making it right or something and he stated "What would you like me to do burn the place down." I was told I would not be receiving any type of refund. This is bad business. Glad I took pictures TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Clean room at a fair price

Our stay was nothing spectacular, but it was just fine. The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was very good. We enjoyed our time near the lake, and will likely stay here again. I recommend this as a quick stop off point. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

It was ok

Jul 29th, 2018

This was pretty much just a place to sleep overnight. The room was mostly clean though we did find someone else’s bra in the closet area. The bathroom is teeny tiny and one of the knobs on our sink was broken so there was not hot water. The walls are thin and there is a lot of noise in the early evening. It appears that there may be long term residents. What was good for us was the location since we planned to be up at the Emerald Bay Park and Pope Beach. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
