We stayed at Forest Lane resort at the end of June, in the studio cabin. This unit was perfect for two people, and our dog! The resort owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The resort was in a convenient location for us. I would recommend this resort!

This is the first time we stayed at this resort. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They will go out of their way to make you comfortable. The cabins are well kept and very clean. We also rented their fishing boat which was very convenient. I also caught a 52 inch world class musky off of their pier! They...

Have stayed here several times over the years and have had a wonderful experience each time! One year I saw a moose on the way up, another year, a bear. The fishing has been great, the beach and playground wonderful for the kids, but most of all the cabins have been spotless. And I'm picky! I wouldn't hesitate on this...

Thanks Pat and Dave for a wonderful stay. I would advise anyone to stay here clean comfy cabins. Boat rentals. Place for kids to play on a swing set with slide very nice. And don't forget that Thursday is cookie day. Pat made some out of this world chocolate chip cookies.

We loved our stay here. Cabin 5 was perfect for me, my husband and our lab and had everything we needed. The rates can't be beat! The owners, Dave and Pat were great, the ground was really soggy and Pat brought me a pair of rubber boots as soon as we got there. If it had been warmer, we would...

Dave and Pat were very accommodating and always took time to talk to us. The cabins are older and small but had everything we needed and are kept clean. There is a lot for folks to do there and nearby. We would defiantly like to come back again. Thanks, Genz Party

Stayed at Forest Lane resort multiple times. We loved our stay. Beautiful grounds, great view of the lake and great amenities. Cabins are clean and cozy! Great for fishing or for just a relaxing getaway. Great place for families: beach and playground for kids. Family that owns the resort are friendly and great people. Definitely recommend staying at this place.
