Great property for large group or reunion!
Very nice property for a large group. Everyone has their own space with the cabins, but there is plenty of common space for group gatherings. The cabins are nicely remodeled, the beach is great with all the toys you want and it's generally a great place to gather with those you love. The only downside is the 9 am checkout time. We didn't have kids in our group, but getting kids up, fed and dressed while preparing the property for departure by 9 am would be tough. Overall this is an amazing property that we would definitely book again.
Thanks so much for your review! Yes, we do understand the difficulty with the early checkout time, but with it taking us 5 hours to clean the property for the next group, the timing gets difficult..... we may need to go with a later checkout and later check-in to make it all work!!! So glad that you enjoyed our property!
What a fantastic property! The bungalows are perfect with plenty of space. Very sandy beach and great swimming area. Each bungalow has its own character and uniqueness, words cannot describe how blown away our group was at the beauty of this property. Landscaping and yard were gorgeous and well kept, kitchens and bathrooms were spotless, and our group of 30 slept very comfortably. This weekend at the Bungalows made our Summer!!!
Great Family Get-together
Our extended family spent a few days here at Latoka Lodge and everything about it was fantastic. The bungalows are wonderful and beautifully decorated. The biggest decision was who got to stay in each bungalow. Everything we needed was right there. The outdoor space was beautiful, flowers were fantastic. The little kids really enjoyed the playground area. The beach was clean and sandy, and stayed shallow quite a ways which also was nice for the little ones. The bigger kids and adults had fun using all the paddle boards, paddle boat and kayaks. The patio and outdoor seating areas were great and had enough seating for all, 31 of us stayed. We had family pictures taken and the resort was a perfect back drop. Every single one of us had a wonderful time. The perfect resort for a family get together.
The perfect family!
Latoka Lodge is an absolutely beautiful resort getaway. There were 20 of us for two weeks and we had an awesome time. The bungalows are beautiful and SO well equipped. It was wonderful that each family could have their own house. We were lacking for nothing!!! The outdoor space was incredible with a gorgeous view of the water. The kids spent their days in the water and the lake was so clear and close that we could relax knowing they were always within eyesight. The owners were quick to answer questions or solve any problems we had. It was perfect for our family and we highly recommend it to everyone. We will be back in 2016!!! Thank you for this beautiful place to gather and spend time together.
Perfect Reunion Location!
Our family of about 22 assorted cousins and siblings found this to be an ideal gathering place. Each family had a private retreat with the 5 cabins, and the lodge area provided a gathering spot to share meals, play games and trade memories and photos. The lakeside patio was refreshing (and there were hardly any mosquitos!) Our hosts, Judy and Lee, have done an outstanding job of providing far more than basic supplies: the lodge kitchen has plenty of dishes, flatware, mugs, wine glasses, cookware, and of course, a 40-cup coffee pot. All the extras such as beverage coolers on the patio, hooks for beach towels outside, plenty of refrigerator space, a fish-cleaning table and freezer, paddle boards and kayaks, etc. made this a fantastic vacation spot. Thank you, Judy, for creating such a welcoming spot for us!
Gorgeous Bungalows/Super Lake-Cation!!
The pictures do not do this property justice! It was absolutely perfect for our family reunion, areas for the big group and separate quarters for privacy! The beach was sandy and water clear! Definitely coming back!
