Our 4 th year at this lodge. We couldn’t fault the cleanliness for our stay. In these difficult times we were grateful to get our break away and as always everything was first class.

This was our second stay at this property. Excellent location on the site-short walk to the lake with views of the lake from the large deck. Property well equipped with large bedrooms. Comfortably furnished.

Thank you for your kind review. Grandpa's Lodge is a great place to stay in the Lakes. As you rightly point out, an excellent location and an excellent lodge! We are so pleased to hear you had another enjoyable stay and it will be a pleasure to welcome you for another very soon. Thank you.
