We went to Laurentian Lodge in July 2011. We found the town of Elliot Lake had everything we needed and the look out at the Fire Tower is a must.
We rented a cottage near the boating docks on the water, with a waterfall at the one side beside the bedroom window. Nice. Big deck with chairs and a picnic table. Full sun all day. Small beach and swimming area. Our cottage had 2 floors and could comfortably accommodate 6 with 2 bathrooms and equipped with handicap shower. The cottage itself was spotless and they came in every day to change the dish and bath towels and cleaned the sink and shower daily. The grounds were beautiful for walks and sitting areas really scenic and relaxing. At the bottom of the waterfall, there was a basin that was a natural whirlpool. Wonderful.
The staff were very helpful. The main lodge was spotless and everyone was friendly. We took our ATV there and were directed to some great trails by the resort owner, with spectacular views. We tried the trails in Elliot Lake and they were terrible. If you want a real challenge and enjoy the bumps, hills and twists, you may enjoy it but we found there was not much to see compared to the trails Laurentian Lodge hooked us up with.
All in all, we would highly recommend this lodge. Food, people, accommodation, and scenery...all of it was just great.
