The actual room was tolerable, almost decent. The reason for the visit(and the manager knew this) was to celebrate our 1-year Anniversary.The outside was atrocious. There were weeds waist high in the tiny back yard. Tiny river in back with stagnant water. Trailer park across the road. Several propane tanks (5 gal type) lined up near the common area and grills with over grown grass(see photos). No soap or shampoo in bathroom. They will not give you keys until you have paid for your full reservation. If you decide to check out because of the condition of the environment, they will not let you get a refund for the nights you did not stay.

In their defense, it is a decent place to stay if the purpose of your trip is fishing all day and drinking at the local bars at night. Absolutely not a romantic getaway with your wife on your anniversary, unless she and you are fishing buffs; we are not.

We stayed at Mountain Lake over Labor Day weekend this year. Overall, I have to say that we liked it. It allows dogs, which is awesome. Not only do they allow dogs, the cabins all have little fenced yards, so you don't have to constantly keep your pet on a leash. Affordable places that are truly pet friendly are hard to find, so we really enjoyed that. The cabin was very clean. The owners were super nice. Our heater didn't kick on and they came right over and got it lit, no problem. The view out of our back porch was gorgeous and the location was great. It was nice to have a full kitchen and, since there were several "important" football games that weekend, the satelite TV was also appreciated.

A few downsides: These cabins are not really meant for full size people. I am pretty small and thought it was great and cozy. But my 6'3 husband...well, I don't see how he fit into that shower. Also, the couch was a futon bed and could have been a little sturdier. He isn't very fat or anything, but the creaking when he sat on it made us both a little nervous! Also, the pipes are really loud. The first time we heard them banging we thought it was the guy next door doing heavy construction or something. It only seemed to be the shower, though, and not the toilet, so it wasn't a late night issue and didn't bother us too much.

Overall I would recommend staying here if you travel with your dog, because it is very affordable and it is actually really pet friendly, as opposed to places that just tolerate pets. BUT, if you are very fat or very big in general (not being mean, but that shower was SMALL), I would look elsewhere.

I made my reservation months in advance, paid a deposit and when I arrived I was told they had double booked us, and we were out of luck. We had to MAKEe them call around to find another place for us, they didn't offer to help at all, even though it was their fault, which the woman admitted. The man was rude the whole time, even though I was very polite. The only place left in town was a dump. They didn't offer to help us out in any way, not even to let us use the phone to contact the other members of our party to let them know of the change in plans!

There are plenty of other place to stay in the Grand Lake area, if you book in advance. I'd stay away from this one.

Dave and Karen have made so many improvements to Mountain Lakes Lodge. It is a wonderful, fun place to stay. Clean rooms and great people. Dave can help with your fishing needs. We have been going to this lodge for several years, and are planning a trip back right now. Summers are cool and refreshing, and the fall is beautiful. Fishing is better in the fall. The Mawhorter's are the greatest. The view from your deck is awesome.
