Peaceful, serene lodge in a beautiful setting that is great for family gatherings!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 generations of family from 4 states gather at Lost Branch Lodge in July 2017. We were all very pleased with the property and the amenities. The layout is great for large family/group gatherings, having plenty of indoor and outdoor entertaining space. The independent bedrooms and bathrooms work out well for having a variety of families come together, while still maintaining some personal space. The beach/pond were well received by all as the kids spent plenty of time down there swimming, fishing, and paddling around in the canoe (and we had plenty of catch-and-release opportunities as the fish were routinely biting).

A few notable family quotes:

Nephew running through the hallway - "This is the best vacation ever! It's like we rented out an entire hotel for ourselves!"

Parents - "This place is great! We should do this again next year."

Sibling - "I'm surprised that they supply so much stuff around the property. The kitchen is fully stocked, there are toys and games, and there are plenty of things to do inside and outside."

We will certainly be returning in years to come! Thanks!

Very nice for large family group

  • 5 of 5

Very nice lodge. Set up was great for large family gathering. Separate bedrooms each with its own bathroom was wonderful. Clean, spacious, relaxing setting. Kitchen fully stocked so we had no issues cooking for a large group. Kids had fun with fishing in the pond or playing in the garage "rec area". Only 10 minute drive to grocery store. Will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My basketball team and I stayed at the lodge for a nearby basketball camp and came was amazed by the accommodations that were provided. It was a wonderful, peaceful area and the lodge was clean, comfortable and left plenty for all of our kids to do. We were able to grill outside, cook, gef out on the pond and just hang out. There wasn't a complain from a single player or coach on our team. Hands down one of the best places we've stayed and we intend to do it again!

Family Time at Lost Branch Lodge

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year for our all-family time at Lost Branch Lodge. It is the perfect place for us providing plenty of space with bathrooms with each bedroom, well equipped kitchen, table space for the whole family to eat together, a lake that the grandkids can play in all day, a canoe to row and fish from, fire pits to use to make smores, etc. etc. We had a wonderful time!

The fishing was great for an activity, nice and private, liked that it was clean around the pond.

It was great that each room has it's own bathroom.

We like to hear of all the improvements that you want to do.

Keep up the good work.

Perfect For Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

We booked this venue for a small family reunion. We had 11 people from 4 states converging for a graduation. This property was perfect for us in every way. Clean, 5.5 miles from town, plenty of stuff to do such as pool table, beanbag toss, etc. We just bought groceries in town and let everyone fend for themselves. Would use it again for a family function in a heartbeat!
