I have stayed here on multiple occasions both when it was brand new and more recently. There are so many positive reasons to stay here from the super creative up north themed rooms to the pool and hot tub, excellent up keep and convenient location. It's been an excellent addition to the lodging options in Crosslake but it needs just...

Came up for Clover Dash, very excited to make it a day and family event. Check-in was great, room very cute and clean, pool area perfect for families. Breakfast was okay, waitress was very helpful. The part that ruined it for us was customer service the next morning. 1.) We had asked at check-in if parking would be an issue...

The best amenity of the lodge is the pool and hot-tub. However the hotel needs a bit more attention to the rooms. The lighting in the rooms is inadequate for getting dressed (common since hotel is used for family and matrimonial functions) and there is no full-length mirror. The sofa bed mattresses have holes in them with metal poking through...

The main lodge is complimented by several other properties nearby. While there in the late Fall, post leaf color and pre-winter activity in an amazingly scenic and out-of-doors driven tourist region, the center for the wedding attended was ultra-convenient. There is a knotty-pine theme, pleasant public areas, without dining facilities in the building. The continental breakfast was ok, but fresh...

I took advantage of a recent Groupon offer. There was a slight mixup about overbooking, but the Lodge certainly tried their best to make it all ok for us. I would definitely like to visit again. The Continental breakfast was substantial. and the trees were beautiful.

Room was very nice, spacious, comfortable, reasonably priced. Check-in experience was terrible. Front desk agent was no where to be found. Finally, answered page after about 10 minutes. When she showed up, told me I had 2 rooms in my name - a mistake. Couldn't tell me that I wouldn't be charged for two rooms (later resolved) and forgot to...

we were here for a wedding and had the queen suite it was very roomy . The lodge is a bit outdated but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast didn't have much but I knew that from other reviews. If there is a wedding and you are on the ground floor you will definitely hear the music...

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are working on different items each year to update and upgrade our lodge. Some of those updates include new TVs in the rooms as well as new breakfast items – hot and cold. We hope to have some of those in place over the next few months.

This was our second but more prolonged midweek stay at Whitefish Lodge. We really enjoy the decor, quick breakfast, large pool area, and arcade. Proximity to food, shops, etc is great even walkable. Couple suggestions for improvement would be not promoting smoking at entrances... even staff smoking at entrance is very uninviting and at one point lobby smelled like smoke....

We were lucky to get a room at the last minute as accommodations in the area were tight. The hotel is extremely clean and adorably decorated in an "up north" theme. We were not told there was a wedding in the hotel until we arrived and since we were on the first floor, we heard booming bass from the DJ...
