In town for a wedding. Two adults and two children. Room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was continental, but the kids loved the cinnamon rolls. Staff was available and friendly. Great weekend.

We have never been to this area before and didn't quite know what to expect. This place was so great! We loved our room and the balcony. We took a short walk to the waterfront park next door where they had a band playing. So fun! Boats were pulled up to join the crowd. The common areas of the hotel... More

Very up to date rooms, decorated in a rustic theme. Our room was sparkling clean. Check in was very friendly and efficient. Their "light breakfast" is very healthy, dry cereal and oatmeal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit cut up, as well as apples, oranges and bananas. Scenic location. Would definitely stay there again.

If you want a new place thats clean and quiet, this is it. it's probably a little pricey (for the area), but you don't have to "put up" with anything. The breakfast consists of rolls juice, coffee, etc, but at least its something in your stomach as you head out the door. Not a fishing resort, but we did bring... More

The Lodge at Manitowish Waters is an exceptional value. An idyllic Northwoods retreat. Clean, like new rooms - many with private balconies overlooking a beautiful lawn and woods, an exceptional staff & tasty light continental breakfast. The location is ideal - close to an excellent grocery store, ice cream stand, hardware store, antique store, and a wide variety of dining... More

My wife & I spent two nights at The Lodge in Manitowish Waters and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the room was bright, nicely furnished, and immaculately clean. We had a second floor room with a balcony overlooking the woods, very private.

I have been coming to the Manitowish Waters area for over 50 years. Usually staying in seasonal cottages. For this years trip we decided to stay at the Lodge because family members who stayed there had great things to say. We were a bit apprehensive to give up the "Up North" environment of a lake side cottage but we are... More

This was a nice hotel right in the center of town. It was within walking distance to all of the shops, the grocery store, the Discovery Center, Koller Park (Rest Lake) and even the playground/tennis courts by the small airport. The continental breakfast was small, but fine. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean.

If you are going up north to the Manitowish Waters area, I would highly recommend The Lodge. Our stay was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. We had a balcony room on the 2nd floor that overlooked a lush yard and beautiful wooded area. I could have spent the whole day just sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee (Keurig... More

I have been writing for trip advisor and reading reviews to select hotels and restaurants for some time now and did so when choosing the Lodge.
