Fantastic retreat in the North Country

  • 5 of 5

We just had a delightful week in the North Country using the Lodge as our base. What a wonderful place to stay. Everything as advertised, and perhaps better. We had a large family group and used just about everything. Relaxing in the hot tub watching the sun go down was a great way to end a day. The game room was a treat, we settled who the best pool player in the family is (at least temporarily); and introduced a new generation to shuffleboard. One under-appreciated feature is a dinner table big enough to seat everyone all at once, so that we could have breakfast and dinner all together. Lots to do in the area, we had some great outings on some of the trails nearby (Higley Flow State Park is close by, and a treasure). We’re already planning our next visit up there.

Another wonderful getaway at the lodge

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the lodge and we'll certainly be going back in the years to come. While the weather didn't cooperate this time, the property is still so serene and peaceful. We had plenty to do, exploring the woods, making the snow run to the hot tub, stoking late night fires, hanging out in the game room, or just sitting back relaxing and watching nature. The furniture cushions could use some replacing/repair; while comfortable they are quite saggy. The lodge is the perfect getaway from the wear and tear of everyday life. Thanks for the lasting memories!

A wonderful private getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a seamless trip. The location, the privacy and the accommodations were fantastic. The property was gorgeous with access to the water it felt as if you were in your own little private country. The only negative was the amount of goose droppings across the property which just required us to find some tools to try and remove it from the heavily walked paths. Otherwise an amazing experience. Would go again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your enthusiastic words of appreciation. Yes, the geese were a problem this year....we have since discovered that spraying fox urine repels geese, I am just sorry that we discovered this trick after your stay! Donna
