Windigo Lodge should be condemned. I went as part of a group of 30+ people this past weekend. Cabins were dirty, even dirty dishes in the cupboards. Cabins had random silverware, ours had 3 forks, 6 spoons. No smoke alarms. One cabin had a gas leak in the line to the stove. Pontoons didn't work. One of their staff fell... More

We went to Windigo for the second time this July. It's very affordable and is located on a great lake. We rented a pontoon and had a lovely morning on the lake. The owner went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Kacy brought us over a grill right away so we could get our dinner cooking. Last... More

The experience from check in to check out was fantastic. Kace walked us to our cabin we stayed in Cabin3. She walked us down to their water front and explained the canoes and kayaks were part of our rental. This was an added bonus for us. We ate the beer battered walleye and the steak sandwich both were GREAT!!! All... More

My sister, husband and I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon to check out the bar and have a drink. Walking in the front door we looked up a steep, long flight of stairs. My first impression was, that's odd and potentially dangerous. Stairs + alcohol= trouble, for some people. We went upstairs, the first thing you see is a... More

Reserved the cabin we wanted 364 days in advance, putting a 50% deposit down and were given a written receipt of deposit/reservation confirmation from the manager, plus later in the fall got a hand written guarantee from the owner that she received our deposit and that we...

After reading the very poor reviews, I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in cabin 3. It is not brand new and is in need of some repairs. Do not stay here if you are not ok with an older cabin. We liked it. Our deck faced Lake Poplar, and overlooked the small dock and playground. It is a very modestly... More

I have to give a high five for the support this bar gives to mush for the cure. We went by snowmobile and stopped in for a drink. The bar is older, but the staff was very nice. They were having an 80's night raising money for breast cancer. Everyone was in 80's clothes having a great time. Great party... More
