Here we go.... The staff here are amazingly patient and are willing to keep you happy by any means!
The small lake that is resort use only is pretty cool and does feel lost as theres only 2-5 people on it at any given time....
Cons....Upkeep of this place needs lot of attention....appliances not working....machines not working.....and the very shotty patchwork is noticable everywhere you look.
The food.....now my palette is pretty weak and am a redneck by birth but after seeing the pictures of the food here .... I was like wowwwww that looks extremely classy.....however.....breakfast is part of the all inclusive package and its basically eating mediocore perkins food...the lunch is not part of the all inclusive and tasted an looked like teenager summerjob cooks put it together ....soooo badddddd... Finally the dinner...you know the real chef only works at night with a 4 course meal and its pretty good appearance and taste wise..besides the minimum of an hour and half it takes to get all your food ...p.s. Go buy lunch and bring it back to the resort or just have leftovers for your lunch itll save you minimum for 2 people close to hundred bucks a lunch. A 15% service charge is tacked on to each meal bill so 100dollar meal bill which is cheap there your paying an additional 15 bucks per meal
All in all i would suggest this place just for the kind guests and the location.. I had talked to some veteran goers of this place and they said it had recently changed hands to someone that already owns many properties and all the charm and upkeep is gone now ... I would hire someone just to nitpick this place and for professionls to fix..agsin though staff is very accomadating and thy just need a strong owner to lead the way...
First tripadvisor review but have traveled the world
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Minnesota's smallest all-inclusive resort, Lost Lake Lodge offers lodging in 14 lakeside cabins, with breakfast and dinner in their award-winning restaurant included in the daily rate. Resting between a private, spring-fed lake and the Upper Gull Lake Narrows, the 80 acres of forest and trails are surrounded by water on all sides. The resort mixes 1940's retro-charm and vintage knotty pine with luxurious appointments and modern conveniences, allowing guests to experience the kind of "up-north" lake vacation they remember from childhood, but with all the comforts of home. A stay at Lost Lake Lodge will not only include the chance to catch bass off the dock or paddle a kayak out to see the loons' nest, it will also ensure that each evening culminates in a gourmet four-course dinner overlooking Gull Lake. There are no crowds here: the cabins, restaurant, lakes, and activities are all within easy walking distance, yet the property is large enough that guests can enjoy private time around the grounds any time of day. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, taking time to get to know their guests and providing outstanding personalized service. Winner of Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence, the restaurant's extensive wine list features international value wines and highly-rated California selections, and offers both wine pairing and wine flight options. Ever-changing entree choices range from pan-fried walleye to grilled wild boar tenderloin and locally-grown, house-smoked duck breast. All table breads are made from scratch in the kitchen each day, and the chef sources much of his produce from local farms. Children's menus are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. ... more less
