We found cabin 4 to be ideally located to avoid excessive noise. It is true that plenty needs to be done, but let's face it, they are rustic cabins and the bedding was clean. We found every employee to be very friendly and didn't have heavy expectations to begin with; beyond getting away from the valley for a break that is. It really was a great getaway, and the respite we needed for a re-boot of our hectic lives. I wish I had brought my fishiing gear, as I saw some very nice trout near the bank. The owner thought I might have seen grass carp, but being an avid sportsman, I'm certain they were trout. It was nice to be able to have sauna; although small, there was a bottle of water there to at least feign the Finnish tradition of having löyly. Having previously owned and operated Lakeshore Cabins in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula, I know the value of peace and quiet; we found it at this gem of a resort!
What can I say negative? Nothing. The cabins are clean, the staff is friendly and professional. There is plenty to do away from the resort. Even if you stay in a cabin near the main road, one really does not hear the cars going by as they are masked by the trees. Staying here again in the fall. Can't wait.
My family and I have been to Lake of the Woods several times. Every visit has been nothing but a pleasure.
The owners were as nice in person as they were on the phone.
The cabins are spacious, clean and very homey. We stay in a different cabin each time because we want to experience them all. So far we can't pick a favorite because we love them all.
Let's start by saying that the $330 per night is a complete rip off. Had we known what we were in for - I never would have stayed at this resort. Not even for free. The lake is disgusting and is more a pond than lake. You could not sit on the dock as the chairs were covered in bird droppings. The yard was covered in cigarette butts and garbage. The deck was dirty and the grill was unusable (all rusted). The kitchen - ugh! Gross - even the kitchen knobs had mold growing inside them. The electrical in all the bathrooms did not work. There were dead (and live - lucky us) bugs everywhere. You could not sit downstairs because the furniture was covered (and I do mean covered) in pet hair. The mattresses all need replacing as well. Barely enough plates for the ten of us - let alone the 20 it is supposed to sleep. The bathroom door in one of the rooms desperatly needs replacing. Pet hair was also all over the carpets. Not nearly enough towels for us to use. The sauna/hot tub - don't even bother - I would be scared to try based on the condition of the cabin. The rec room was just as bad. A wall of electrical games that don't work. A crappy pool table and ping pong table - both which need to be replace. We can handle 'old', but not 'filthy'. Unfortunately we got both. What a nightmare...
The location of LOtW cottages is gorgeous and has such great potential for these new owners. The kitchen was outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, utensils -- and the plethora of those things which we had brought were just duplicates. :)
Peggy was very friendly and accommodating and was in frequent contact with us prior to this get-away from the desert to the mountains that had a dual purpose. It had suddenly turned unexpectedly very cold about the time of our arrival with wind and eventually snow. Winter is NOT the time to plan a few days in a rustic cottage such as the one we were in. But, more favorable weather without high winds should greatly enhance this experience.
We found that our cottage needs updating or repair in several areas to still maintain the rustic appeal: 1) the bathroom flooring and new vanity assembly needs to be redone by a professional. It does not give good ambience in the hospitality industry; 2) the windows in the larger BR need weather stripping or a re-fitting since the wind blows through at night-time to an extent which blows the curtains, and provide a rattle for a light sleeper; 3) the step-down from the kitchen into the LR is quite dark on dark carpet, and needs bright stripping or a fixed light for us old people with vision and mobility challenges; 4) The back kitchen door needs weather stripping badly, and the lack of heat in that area of the house was not conducive to cooking.
Best wishes to Peggy and the staff for the future of this place. It is visually appealing and refreshing.
