My husband and I spent 1 night 2 days at Spectacle Lake Lodge for the first time this week. We booked a lodge room which was really comfortable and offered anything you would need for a comfortable stay. There was sitting spaces, chairs and table plus a chesterfield. The room was fantastic, the Madawaska Spectacle Lake Coffee provided in restaurant and room is the best coffee I have tasted in years. The bed in our room was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was well stocked, the shower had great water pressure, the towels and linens were much more luxurious than one normally finds in a near-north Ontario lodge. We had a kettle to make tea, a fridge and coffee pot with the delicious coffee provided at no charge. The room provided lots of space, was clean and offered many extras, like extra pillows, extra blanket, extra soap, towels and more. We enjoyed a dinner and a lunch in the restaurant, both were delicious. The servers were both efficient, safe and friendly. We will be returning for another tiny getaway later this month because it was so lovely and relaxing. Thank you!!

Spectacle Lake Lodge is an informal, relaxing place to spend a few days during the fall season. We took a cabin without a kitchen. It was comfortable and had everything one needs. Sitting on the front porch, we faced the lake. The dining room served a feast of foods - we enjoyed the ribs and breaded fish platters. The staff were attentive and we had a picturesque view down the lake. Our main activity was hiking. A short walk from the resort is the entry to Spectacle Ridge Trail. Climbing up to the lookout provided a variety of terrain. The view from the top was stunning. From there many more trails would provide days of hiking. This is a delightful little spot in the upper Madawaskas.

We’ve been here previously. This year dining service was average. But covid Surely has contributed. Being asked constantly (every. single. meal) if we have a reservation is so annoying. We were staying at a lodge with one dining room. Obviously we need to eat. I can’t separate the ratings - the lodge is great. The dining is a problem.

We were there with a group of 4 couples to do some trail riding on the side by sides. It was the perfect base for the weekend. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was fantastic. The rooms were clean and and so so quiet. Will definitely make a return trip to stay in one of the cabins. Great weekend

I stayed here and it was a lovely spot. I had room 1A which is by the water. You can park very close to your room. The beach has a little playground and chairs to relax in. The rooms are clean with a fridge coffee maker, tv, fireplace and clean towels. The food from the restaurant was incredible.
