The Lounge upstairs had convenient access via the elevator. Fishing will probably be great in another month. Traveled around the surrounding 30 miles and enjoyed the views

Liked the waterfront view. Disliked not having fan/AC. Think it would be too hot in the summer.

I am not sure it's a lodge more like a motel. The view from the room was beautiful and the room amenities got the job done. The bed left something to be desired as it was rock-hard and not very comfortable.
