We stopped in for a quick lunch on the way home and it was a quiet, nice stop for a bite to eat. The have gluten free buns for their burgers and some options which is nice for an out of the way place. They have a great sun room and view of the lake. We had burgers and fries... More

Basic but well kept accommodation, friendly and helpful staff and a wonderful location. I wish we'd stayed longer and come at a better time of year, but it's still pretty great to watch the sun come up over the lake with a lone wolf howling in the distance. Only downside, found food in the restaurant wasn't great and I felt... More

We were recommended to eat here and glad we did as it was a really good meal. It's on the lakeside and has beautiful views. The food was very good and service was friendly and quick. I was told to get here by 6.30pm for an evening meal as it gets busy but we didn't book and still managed to... More

At the waters edge--this was a spectacular venue for my daughters wedding. The staff totally outdid themselves and served one of the best meals I've had in a long time. Fortunately the weather cooperated for an outdoor wedding. Kudos to Sharon

On May 14th I had the opportunity to benefit from the fantastic hosts at the Spectacle Lake Lodge when my group attended their buffet dinner. The food as fantastic ie Lemon Chicken, Pasta, breaded fish and a great dessert display. You have to try their rice pudding!!
