If vacation is about leaving all the stresses of everyday life behind, then YPL is an exemplar. The guests tend to be older as the minimum age is 15 and only once have I seen anyone below drinking age staying at the lodge. It's quiet, beautiful inside and out, with plenty of activities from cribbage to kayaking. The main room is more of a quiet area with the downstair designated at more of a play room, with a ping pong table and darts. There is a hot tub that seats about six and a small dry sauna as well. You won't go away hungry. Three delicious meals, plus coffee and treats late morning and an afternoon and evening tea. The wash houses for the basic cabins are nice, but when the weather is good, nothing beats the treehouse shower. The staff is first rate. Forget baseball fields in Iowa. This is heaven.
While there, don't miss out on the Crow & Gate Tavern, a few minutes down the road.More
