We took advantage of some last minute vacancy rates and stayed at Ruttger's Bay Lake Lodge two nights. The property is beautiful. All of the grounds and buildings are carefully maintained. The outdoor pool is small so our kids preferred swimming in the lake. There is an indoor pool as well. During our visit, the lake water was very high, so there was only a small strip of beach available. I would like to return during a time when more beach was available.
My only complaint was that the hum of the room refrigerator woke me up during the night. I am a light sleeper though, as it didn't disturb anyone else in the family.
