The main lodge is complimented by several other properties nearby. While there in the late Fall, post leaf color and pre-winter activity in an amazingly scenic and out-of-doors driven tourist region, the center for the wedding attended was ultra-convenient. There is a knotty-pine theme, pleasant public areas, without dining facilities in the building. The continental breakfast was ok, but fresh...

I took advantage of a recent Groupon offer. There was a slight mixup about overbooking, but the Lodge certainly tried their best to make it all ok for us. I would definitely like to visit again. The Continental breakfast was substantial. and the trees were beautiful.

Room was very nice, spacious, comfortable, reasonably priced. Check-in experience was terrible. Front desk agent was no where to be found. Finally, answered page after about 10 minutes. When she showed up, told me I had 2 rooms in my name - a mistake. Couldn't tell me that I wouldn't be charged for two rooms (later resolved) and forgot to...

we were here for a wedding and had the queen suite it was very roomy . The lodge is a bit outdated but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast didn't have much but I knew that from other reviews. If there is a wedding and you are on the ground floor you will definitely hear the music...

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are working on different items each year to update and upgrade our lodge. Some of those updates include new TVs in the rooms as well as new breakfast items – hot and cold. We hope to have some of those in place over the next few months.

This was our second but more prolonged midweek stay at Whitefish Lodge. We really enjoy the decor, quick breakfast, large pool area, and arcade. Proximity to food, shops, etc is great even walkable. Couple suggestions for improvement would be not promoting smoking at entrances... even staff smoking at entrance is very uninviting and at one point lobby smelled like smoke....

We were lucky to get a room at the last minute as accommodations in the area were tight. The hotel is extremely clean and adorably decorated in an "up north" theme. We were not told there was a wedding in the hotel until we arrived and since we were on the first floor, we heard booming bass from the DJ...

We are so sorry to hear of the noise you experienced during your stay – We currently host a wedding every weekend until Christmas this year. Some are quieter than others and we do try to monitor them the best we can. We are happy you are willing to return and stay with us again.

We love Whitefish! We have stayed a few times now and also had our wedding there. The rooms are incredibly charming and the staff are fantastic to work with. We would recommend it for your next big event or vacation up in Crosslake.

Very clean room. Nice staff. Breakfast was perfect, it had something for everyone. Eggs, muffins,oatmeal, assortment of breads and so much more. Thank you for helping our family out while we had no power and no water. Our kids had so much fun at the pool.

Thank you for your review. We are happy we could accommodate you and your family after the horrible storm that came through our area – it is nice to hear you kids had so much fun in the pool. We hope you didn’t have too much damage to you home.
