The two decks are great, you are right on top of the water. The beach looks great but the weather was too cold to swim. Thumbs up on this one!

Plenty of room for everyone to sit around and spend some good relaxing time together. We even enjoyed the beach much more this year, with the lake being filled back up and all. Kids had a blast playing in the water, and of course jumping off the pier. We look forward to returning year after year, as Pine Bay Lodge has taken such good care of us once again!
