There is not enough words to describe how amazing this place is. Wendy was very helpful and friendly. She upgraded our room so we stayed at Birch. Every little detail in that room was done very tastefully. Will definitely stay again.

If I could give 50 stars i would. I had read the previous raving reviews and confirm...noone was exaggerating. This is a family run lodge with all the personal touches that only families can give. The pictures on the website don't do it justice because its the FEEL of the place and people working there that make this lodging experience so special. What u don't see on the site are small yet significant touches and I will name a few. The rooms are airy and calming. There are 5 rooms (i believe) with individual names. Me and my husband stayed in the cedar room. U can see that someone put their heart and sole into its decor, with high vaulted ceilings, small wood carved trinkets, a large screened in porch with fire pit, a fridge stocked with plastic water bottles, a huge steam shower and jacuzzi, bad sheets that were so comfortable that I actually went online and purchased a set for myself. I don't remember sleeping so soundly. The lodge sits on a pristine lake with kayaks and paddle boards provided. Everywhere u turn, there's another sitting area that faces the lake. Breakfast...amazing, prepared for according to your preferences. And downstairs, a game room with a bar for ordering drinks and even a large movie theatre with lazyboys. They even provide a microwave and popcorn bags...I could go on and on but simply said, I am so glad that I found this place. Hats off to the owners, innkeeper, cook and staff that gave us such a memorable summer holiday. Thank u fern lodge

A special place
This place feels like a home, only 5 rooms in a private lake. Our room was huge and even had a fireplace. It is nestled in a beautiful forest, so plenty of places for hiking.

Cedar room
May e replace the hair dryer in the cedar room. It’s pretty beat. Though the room was amazing like all the rest it was a bit annoying to hear everyone downstairs due to the French door in the room.
