Dear 1941CC, We're honored and thankful that you chose to bring your guests to The Boat Club. Sunsets (and craft beers) from the deck are unbelievable, so we're sure your guests took a memory back with them. We hope to see you again very soon!...More

We stayed at this lodge for a full week and had daily breakfasts and 3 dinners here. All were well prepared and well presented. Very good range of selections. The chef even prepared scallops differently than the menu offering to meet our requests.

Average food. We tried the beef tenderloin bruschetta and split the Cobb salad. The bruschetta came on cold, soft bread, rather than toasted bread. So the tenderloin seeped into the bread and made it soggy. My suggestion is to just take the mushrooms and tenderloin...More
