We when to the lodge to celebrate our 53 anniversary January 25. Upon arrival we were told the power was out in the hole county, they were told it would be back on around 5, our room was on the second floor very nice room. The manager came to tell us it was going to be later so they thought...

We stayed at a condo here just after Christmas with our young family. The amenities were amazing, the staff was helpful and the food was so great!! There were a few other families staying at this time so our kids had a blast in the pool. Buglers Restaurant had amazing food and a decent wine selection. Our condo had a...

Stayed here for a couple of nights to meet a family member for some skiing at the local hill. As it was a small hill and the dead of winter I expected a little. But we found a great and cozy room, in a beautiful town with a surprising amount to see and do. At the resort, Swithin and his...

I had my reservations about booking three nights at the Lodge. I read some pretty terrible reviews about the rooms and service. However, I had a great experience. I didn't book online or by phone, I was given the guest services email and interacted primarily with Wanda. She was very helpful and gave some good advice. We arrived early for...

We had one day of quiet this year and we decided to getaway to Elkwater and it was amazing!! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was perfect.

A little glitch when we arrived regarding our rooms but was resolved. Room was very nice but lighting over the kitchen sink was nonexistent so very dark there while making coffee. Room was very nice otherwise. Would definitely return. Also a nice touch on Christmas morning we received a nice container of truffles from the Lodge.

Stayed at the Lodge from Nov 14-17. Very clean room and quiet. We were here hunting and were up at 5:30 am and to bed early and could move about and never heard noise from the other rooms or out front from the vehicles. Front desk was always friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay. Would definitely stay here again...

There are plenty of great things to say about Elkwater. There is ample room for lake activities in the summer motorized or even just beach bumming. They have a cute little mini golf. However, I recommend the hiking trails the most it's a different perspective of the prairies. Make sure you pack water with you cause it can get warm...

Glad to hear you enjoyed your summer stay. It's a great getaway in the winter too! Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, a child-friendly luge, a skating rink through the forest, and the Hidden Valley Ski Hill nearby. Not to mention some great ice-fishing! We hope to see you again soon, and thank you for the nice review. Gail - Public Relations.

First, please call the Lodge direct for proper information on what rooms are available and for what price they can offer you. When we made our booking, from the Lodge website, we were not aware that we had been directed to a third party booking site. Somehow, we were able to book into a cabin that was for seasonal use...

I didn't have high expections for this very out of the way resort. We came into Elkwater early for a wedding and had lots of time on our hands.
