“Best Place on the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

Last time we were able to join my brother and sister in law was after a beautiful wedding, what a wonderful time our family had before coming back to the cities. I'm always amazed at the beauty of the area, the eagles flying around and nesting, never go without a camera for the great shots of wildlife, birds and scenery. Jen and Gordon are warm and loving people ready to make their guest feel welcome. They have done a beautiful job of refurbishing the cabins, they are charming. clean and the fresh air is to be enjoyed. You will not want for a better meal in their restaurant! I really want to go back this fall.

Spent a long weekend at Sandy Point Lodge with our family. The kids loved the cabin we stayed in - Warm, roomy & cozy! Gordon & Jennifer have a great spot, excellent food, and a game room in the main lodge; beautiful views and great hikes! We could have stayed for weeks.

This was our 14h year staying at Sandy Point. That should be review enouch for a reason to visit for the first time. Set in legendary Voyergeurs National Park, there is so much beauty to enjoy. Gordon, Jen and family provide the most warm and relaxing accomodations. Cabins are well appointed, very clean and nostalgic, not to mention home-made quilts on the beds. Food in the lodge is superb. From fresh salads with locally grown veges, hot fresh soups, yummy sandwiches to great steaks. The Friday night ribs are unbeatable and the freshness of the Sandy Point Salad with original home-made dressing is so refreshing. The bar is smartly stocked, and the wine selection very surprising. Start the morning with Gordon's awesome coffee and a friendly game of cribbage. Watch out! He's a shark! Gordon and Jen are knowledgeable in the surrounding area and happy to share. Dock service is immediate and Rhace is so helpful. The whole staff at Sandy Point could not be more friendly. When you get there, just take a chill pill and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. You can hurry and get all stressed out when you get home. Sandy Point is a quality product. I only hope you make the trip to visit.

Sandy point is nice place to stay. The cabins and rooms are well cleaned and the food in the lodge is awesome. Got to try the specials that Jen makes! She is almost a gourmet chef. Wonderful deserts, great friends and don't forget to throw a stick, ball or piece of ice for Abby.The views from all the cabins are superb. Nice place to go with friends and make new ones.

We spent 4 nights in the lodge July 2012 to escape the midwest heat and visit Voyageurs National Park. Owners Gordon and Jennifer were very helpful with hiking recommendations. Sitting beside the lake at the end of a long day was even better after a delicious meal from the restaurant and great drink selection. Breakfasts were delicious and very affordable. Our lodge room was comfortable and had everything we needed. Pictures on the web site are accurate.

Room Tip: We didn't take advantage of swimming in the lake, and did not use the fitness equipment.

Sandy Point Lodge and Resort was always a childhood favorite of my sister and mine. While we would mostly come up in the summer time to relax on Lake Kabetogama, and hike various trails within and bordering Voyagerurs National Park, we loved playing on the sand beach, swimming around the docks and coming into the restaurant for good food and GREAT kiddie cocktails. As an adult, I still visit Sandy Point as often as I can. The charm has only improved with renovated cabins, a great sauna, and a resturant and bar that anyone would enjoy. The owners are friendly, and the staff are always happy to help. I would reccomend Sandy Point for a family on vacation, a romantic weekend or for a chance to get away with friends! I know I will continue coming to Sandy Point and can't wait for my next visit!

Room Tip: If you are in a smaller group, check into the lodge rooms. There are two queen beds in each room on...
