We were so glad that other places were booked and we stumbled onto this, getting the 2nd to last room for the night. In a beautiful setting, Chelka Lodge offers clean, comfortable lodging, friendly owners, and 2 friendly black labs that will come greet you....More

We stayed three nights, extending our original two night stay as long as we could once we were there. All rooms, except two, have a sitting area right outside the room with a spectacular view of the lake. The two that don't have a sitting...More

Thank you for such a positive review. We're glad that you enjoyed our "flotilla" of boats! Chelka Lodge was built in the early 1960's so the structure itself is dated. However, all the rooms have been updated in terms of furniture, bedding, painting and new...More

This was a highlight of our recent road trip. The rooms are good -- comfortable, nicely furnished, small refrigerator, A.C., the bathtub and vanity seemed updated, good TV and wifi. But that's not what you are here for. The setting is gorgeous. Beautiful lake view....More

Chelka Lodge had just the right mix of comfortable, clean rooms, amazing views, peace & quiet, and lake-front options to make this an interesting and relaxing destination for singles, couples or families.
