Stayed here for 2 nights on a weekend getaway with my husband. The renovated rooms are very nice. Very spacious and tastefully done. Had the weather been warmer we could have enjoyed some time sitting outside for some lake views. We braved the chilly air (45 degrees) both mornings and had an awesome breakfast on the deck of the restaurant...

This is a tough one to review! Under new ownership for two years and gradually being renovated. Unfortunately we were put in a "non-renovated' unit which was utterly unacceptable; the worst we`ve been in since Ida`s Motel on the Alaska Hwy in the `90`s. It was tiny, carpet was filthy, bathroom was in disrepair. We had friends in a renovated...

Bocadoug, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. Yes, Blue Water changed hands in the fall off 2013 and has come a long way in the renovation process. With 26 rooms renovated, the restaurant Tavern on the Lake completely renovated and as you say in your review "very popular at night"...

I've been coming to the Blue Water Manor for thirty years and I've seen some years where the place looked terrible. BWM has never looked better. It has always been a Family Resort making sure the guest had a great family experience. It seems that the guest are secondary and the restaurant customers are more important. There is no more...

Stayed at the Lodges based on reviews and so glad that we did. Everything was super clean; staff were very polite and very accommodating. As other reviewers have stated they are currently undergoing renovations. This in no way disturbed our stay. We did stay in a recently refurbished room. While on the smaller side, it fit our needs. There are...
