We had one day of quiet this year and we decided to getaway to Elkwater and it was amazing!! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was perfect. This was by far the most relaxing Christmas we have ever had and we will be recommending this place for any of our friends looking for a close get...

A little glitch when we arrived regarding our rooms but was resolved. Room was very nice but lighting over the kitchen sink was nonexistent so very dark there while making coffee. Room was very nice otherwise. Would definitely return. Also a nice touch on Christmas morning we received a nice container of truffles from the Lodge.

Stayed at the Lodge from Nov 14-17. Very clean room and quiet. We were here hunting and were up at 5:30 am and to bed early and could move about and never heard noise from the other rooms or out front from the vehicles. Front desk was always friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay. Would definitely stay here again...

There are plenty of great things to say about Elkwater. There is ample room for lake activities in the summer motorized or even just beach bumming. They have a cute little mini golf. However, I recommend the hiking trails the most it's a different perspective of the prairies. Make sure you pack water with you cause it can get warm...

Glad to hear you enjoyed your summer stay. It's a great getaway in the winter too! Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, a child-friendly luge, a skating rink through the forest, and the Hidden Valley Ski Hill nearby. Not to mention some great ice-fishing! We hope to see you again soon, and thank you for the nice review. Gail - Public Relations.

First, please call the Lodge direct for proper information on what rooms are available and for what price they can offer you. When we made our booking, from the Lodge website, we were not aware that we had been directed to a third party booking site. Somehow, we were able to book into a cabin that was for seasonal use...

I didn't have high expections for this very out of the way resort. We came into Elkwater early for a wedding and had lots of time on our hands. The staff were very friendly and accommodating with an early check in. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. We had three adults and a baby and we felt like our...

We arrived with no reservations and were warmly greeted. The fall special was a nice surprise as was receiving a $20 rebate for eating at the attached restaurant. The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed both the attached deck and the patio off the main reception area. There are a wide range of room styles from rustic cabins...

We highly recommend this quiet, clean and friendly accommodation. The attached restaurant serves tasty food at a reasonable price. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room on the second floor had a balcony with 2 chairs. There was also a large central balcony area on a lower level with chairs and tables with umbrellas. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Spent 4 nights in a rustic cabin. Area is gorgeous. Staff are very nice. Unfortunately, cabin was not terribly clean. Floors need a good scrubbing. 1 firepit for 3 cabins so if someone else is using it, too bad. On Wednesday we discovered BBQ was broken, told maintenance on Thursday. He said they would replace it that evening. When we...
