Always enjoy our time at the Lodge in Detroit Lakes. The Lodge in Detroit Lakes is a comfortable, quite, peaceful experience. We use the Lodge as a couples retreat but have also included our whole family. We referred to it as our lake home in Minnesota. We will back soon. Thank you to the staff at the Lodge.

My work group stayed overnight. the place was comfortable, clean, and welcoming. I'd consider staying with my family and planning to staying again for work. Smores in the evening were a nice touch. Also, beautiful views.

The rooms are very well appointed, clean and useful. The staff is always professional and friendly. The breakfast leaves a little to be desired, but overall this is the only place I would stay while visiting Detroit Lakes.
