My husband and I visited for the first time just before our wedding 2 years ago, and returned this year to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We stayed in the Cedar Point cottage (formerly cottage 6) and it is so private, you feel like you are out in the woods but still have all the conveniences you need to make it feel like home. It is such a great place to unplug (not much cell service up there, which is a good thing) and connect with nature (and each other). We cherish our time here and look forward to coming back again to make more memories. This year we went on the final weekend in October and although most of the leaves had already fallen, it was still beautiful with a great view of the sunset from our private dock.

Our family has been going to Hay Lake for the past 12 years! We have a wonderful time whether rain or shine. Erin and her staff are always there when you need them - makes us feel like family. Our cabin is always clean - lights on when we are arriving late. This is a trip the whole family looks forward to.

Oh thank you! It is such a treat and a privilege to watch your family go from tiny kids to university students- and still sharing the same cabin! Our lights will always be on for you :)

Our stay was absolutely perfect! From booking our reservation, to arrival, and checkout, Erin was helpful and welcoming. It was our first time visiting Hay Lake Lodge and we will definitely be back next year. The Cabin has a rustic feel but is nicely updated and cozy. The beds were comfortable, the linens were lovely, and the the kitchen was well equipped. The Cabin was SO CLEAN, you could have eaten off the floors. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. A perfect family weekend.

My husband and I booked cabin #2 for a two night stay. We arrived to a beautiful clean one room cabin with 3 piece bathroom, fridge, stove, microwave and all your kitchenware. Two lazy boys and a fireplace with nice private screened in porch( table and chairs) directly outside was a waterfront view with two chairs overlooking the water. In this cabin we had a touch of wi/fi due to being beside the main lodge which was a plus. Lodge is beautiful with a small bar/bakery snacks, games and books. If your looking for an out of city getaway this is great. They also include canoe/kayak use ! The only thing I would have liked to see if I had the kids were a small play area but I feel like it’s more geared to older people anyway! Thanks for the lovely stay!!

Oh my, I missed this! Thank you for you wonderful review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have families visit, especially in the summer and the children spend a lot of time in the swimming area, but it's true that many of our guests are past that stage :). Thanks again, and do come back when you can.
