“Loved it but for the cleaning”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This is a wonderful and interesting place to stay. The lodge is gorgeous. The lack of cleaning may have been a one-off thing but the garbage in bathroom hadn't been changed, the jacuzzi tub shot out a clump of hair and one bed seemed to have been remade without the bedding being changed. The staff was very apologetic about this and said they would bring it up with housekeeping.

Wondrous views! Such calm & peacefulness. I love this place!!! I recommend going in the off-season because I can't imagine it full with lots of energetic kids. Completely different vacation. As it was for me, we shared the lake with a few ducks. The landscape reflecting in the water was spectacular. The deck was...I'm speechless just thinking about the experience. Love, love, loved it! Stayed in the lodge. May try a cabin next time. Or, a tent! Everyone was so friendly. Joyful to be there!

Room Tip: Lodge can be noisy with boisterous lodgers.

Fell in love with the resort as soon as we arrived. The lodge is beautiful, warm, cozy, friendly and the staff is very trusting. Breakfast was wonderful and filling. Beautiful scenery and very private. Other guests were also extremely friendly. It's definitely a great place to go for a weekend to clear your mind and just relax.

This resort has a huge number of options for lodging - rooms in the main building, cabins, camping, and even an Air Stream trailer! We chose it because of it being pet friendly and having two separate bedrooms in the cabin. The cabin was great for four adults and a large dog. It is large with a common living space, one bedroom on the main floor, one loft bedroom, both with their own bathrooms. We were provided delicious breakfast-makings that fed us for three mornings. Even our dog was provided with a nice large dog bed, two bowls and treats. We've been twice in the winter months and felt comfortable and relaxed. I imagine it's a hopping place in the summer with all the amenities the resort offers. I highly recommend the cabins at Lakedale Resort for families and the resort overall for a relaxing getaway. There's a hot tub. No restaurant but breakfast is provided in the lobby each morning if you're not in the cabins.

This is the second visit my wife and I have made to the Lakedale Resort, and it was just as great as the first. And it won't be our last. We love this place...even in winter months, when it's not packed full, the staff is super friendly and very helpful. The included breakfast each day is very good with some healthy choices. The main lobby is beautiful and comfortable with a wonderful rock fireplace. Each of the guest rooms have beautiful private balconies and fireplaces of their own. This stay was over the New Year holiday, and it was the absolute most tranquil New Years we have eve celebrated. Highly recommended!

The only downside for us was that there is no Verizon cell phone coverage, and wireless internet in the lodge was spotty. For us, that was a little bit frustrating, but that might be a big plus for some.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any of the rooms facing the lake!

We just discovered Lakedale Resort and absolutely loved it. With a gorgeous setting on three lakes, cozy and clean cabins, great walking, a lodge with fabulous fireplace and an incredibly helpful staff. It was one of the most relaxing weekend getaways we've had. Loved by the parents, kids and dogs. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for a great weekend!
