We enjoyed our week stay in a lodge suite. The staff was great (although we didn't ask for much) but the owners need to spend a few dollars to add a few more amenities (kleenex, better T.P., better room lighting - that kind of thing.)

We highly recommend Elbow Lake Lodge for many reasons:
*When the tiny onsite store with minimal amenities was out of mayo, they had a worker who was coming in later that day bring some for us from town.
*At the time of our stay, kayaks were included in the price of our suite rental. They kindly allowed the kids in other cabins to use them to their hearts’ content, despite their true two-hour limit. When there was fear we wouldn’t get to use the kayaks, they held the paddles for us when the kids came in from their next round out.
*We expected generic food from their abbreviated menu posted at the small bar. However, we ordered onion rings and spinach artichoke dip and were pleasantly surprised when both were delicious. (We ordered a pizza to our room later on that night and that also was better than expected too.)
*We sat on a couch just behind the bar stools to watch some of the Vikings game while we ate our apps. It ended up being a nice intimate atmosphere, where other guests gathered around the bar watching the game too. One of us remarked that it felt like we were watching the game at a friend’s house. There was a little toddler running around laughing, kids playing ping-pong at a table far behind us, and the staff bantering with the guests while they graciously tended to everyone’s needs.
*We played the very unique and challenging 18-hole mini golf course and the maintenance guy joshed us as he skirted by in his golf course.
*On top of all of this, they honored a Groupon price, upgraded our room on top of it and offered us a deal on a boat rental.

The suite we stayed in, Woodside, was nice, but nothing over the top. It was comfortable and had everything we needed and nothing more or less. Don’t expect fancy rooms or linens. This is still a small northwoods resort. However, there’s plenty to do.

With just three people taking care of 24 cabins, a lodge, and actually some of people’s personal cabins surrounding the lake, you can’t say they’re not hardworking. But on top of that work ethic is wonderful hospitality. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: great hospitality, plenty to keep you busy, calm and peaceful

We just enjoyed our 27th year at Elbow Lake Lodge...the best resort in Minnesota! Lee and staff are absolutely the hardest working people we know - and who make every effort to ensure that our stays are always the best they can be. Period! We love the wilderness feel of Elbow Lake Lodge, the hospitality, tranquility, wildlife, fishing, our yearly cabin, and of course the fabulous beach. Thank you everyone, for another wonderful summer vacay!

We have been going to Elbow Lake Lodge since 1980 with our entire family. The cabins have everything you need except A/C which is not needed. The beach is great for kids, the restaurant has great food and the staff is the best you are ever going to find! The fishing is so great. Have a large family fish fry every year. You cannot go wrong spending a week at Elbow Lake Lodge! Everyone is so sad when we have to come back home!

The only resort on the lake makes for a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. The staff are very friendly, helpful and make their guests top priority. The cabins are clean and comfortable. Beautiful lake!
