We just spent 5 of the best days snowmobiling I've ever had in my life using Elk Lake as our home base. Every single meal we had was amazing, the cabins were clean and comfortable and the staff were super helpful and friendly, plus the sled trails were in mint condition. It's already been confirmed amongst our group that we...

The staff was very accommodating to my party's needs and were always friendly...

We recently stayed at the Eco Centre for a wedding. After looking at the website and reading the reviews I was fairly excited for a great weekend. I was disappointed with the actual accommodations. The lodges are on the small side, the bedrooms are very tight, most have double beds, and the rooms could have been cleaner. We could barely...

Thank you for your candid and detailed response. Your valuable feedback helps us to serve others and hopefully you better in the future. Do apologize for your breakfasts... they usually do include meat and potatoes! To which you should have received your share. I would welcome the opportunity to make this right for you. Shawn

We had lunch. We all had fish and chips. It was tasty, fries were homemade. The next table had burgers. I liked the size of the burgers.(big enough) The server was well trained. She had everything on time. Nice atmosphere. Quiet and nice. Free wifi. Decor is amazing. Fish and chips is 11$.

My husband and I had the pleasure of having the most delicious meal here during our visit to Elk Lake in March for the ice fishing derby! The homemade buffet meal was scrumptious! We recently had the pleasure of walking the fabulous grounds and would love to book one of the peaceful cabins in the woods in the near future!...

“All the rooms are basically the same. They offer 6 guest cabins, all with 6 rooms each, with one only having 5 , designated for wheelchair accesibility. Best bet is to try and get a cabin facing the river.”
