LakeStar was well-reviewed before we stayed so we had a good idea of what to expect. Went for some Fall foliage hiking with our dog and we were happy with the Lodge. Our room was immaculate and the staff was friendly. Great rates, nice location and lovely view. It was quite small with no closet, dresser or anywhere to put...

Beautiful view, very friendly and helpful staff. It was nice to be able to travel with my Golden Doodles. Unfortunately, there are no side walks in the area for walking dogs. It also means you need reflective clothing to walk on the road in front of the lodge. But, there are several restaurants with only a 10 minute walk.

Beautiful rustic design, super clean room, well maintained grounds. Coffee, tea and breakfast snacks available round the clock. Handy fridge and micro in room. We took advantage of that to buy food (and wine!) at the deli down the road and enjoy a dinner picnic right outside our balcony, Friendly owner, helpful staff, who will even cheerfully make a fire...

The Room was very nice and clean. We took our dog and this is one place that would allow her to stay in our room. We made a reservation at the last minute and they were very accommodating.. One thing to watch. When we closed the back door we did not use the dead bolt lock. When we left the...

Most (maybe all?) of the rooms have a view of the lake and Wisp resort. You can actually choose your room from the website. We saw some fabulous sunsets from our balcony. The room was spacious, with microwave, mini-fridge and fireplace. There was no coffee in the room, but k-cups and a keurig machine are in the lobby area, as...

We stopped for the night as we were passing through. Our stay and the facility was super. Elaine was our initial contact via phone and held two rooms for our group. She was very helpful and professional.

We loved our cozy room with the covered balcony and the wonderful view. The room was exceptionally clean. The fireplace was a nice touch, especially since it was a real fireplace instead of a gas one. The staff was very welcoming and friendly also. There is a lot of nice fall decor outside and surrounding the lobby, which was a...
