Very hospitable and attentive lodge keepers and owners. Caroline was very attentive to any questions we had and her husband Tracy keeps everything well maintained and also makes a classic WI Brandy old fashion! We rented the new pontoon boat which was VERY easy to use even for novice boaters and worked perfectly for our fishing and family relaxation needs. Glorious lake for fishing, but we did hire highly recommend local fishing guide John Maier at True North Guides. Four first time Muskie catches for our family of 8. Privacy and quiet with lodge steps away, which was also very quiet. Dogs welcome for those who have canine family:)

Experiencing "COVID-19 fatigue", we decided on an out of town trip and had the best time at Ghost Lake Lodge.Hubby caught a huge 30-inch walleye and we caught sight of a large snapping turtle we called Old Snappy Turtle. We love the place. Carolyn and Tracy were superb and provided great service, making us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay. Cabin amenities are perfect...we look forward to our next visit :)

Our family of five had the best time at ghost lake lodge! Carolyn and Tracy were so kind, warm and welcoming. The place is nestled in a national forest. Its just what we needed during these uncertain times. Our kids enjoyed being kids. They did a lot of fishing, swimming, and hiking. The lodge itself is really neat. They have a bar, pizzas, game room for the kids. If you need a break check this place out. It’s truly a hidden gem!

We were late getting in and worried about checking in. But the new owners were right there to greet us at 11pm when we drove in. There owners and staff were really friendly and helpful. The cabin was very clean and the amenities were nice. They provided lots of entertainment and things to do.

We were not quite sure what to expect when booking Ghost Lake Lodge in early August for a Labor Day weekend retreat to celebrate a birthday and get together as friends. We chose this lodge due to price point and centralized locations (people from both Madison and Minneapolis area). We found the resort atmosphere to be right on-point with what we were looking for. A quiet place to relax and catch up with old college pals. The cabin was roomy (for 6) and clean, great proximity to the fishing dock where the boats were. We were roughly 30 feet from the lodge. The fishing was sub-par which put a damper on the weekend, but the hospitality of the lodge made up for the poor outings. The lodge was ran by an older couple who was extremely helpful and friendly with checking in and out as well as running the full service bar from 12pm-9pm (we took full advantage). We spent almost every night socializing and having a few cocktails before we took the party back to the campfire (free wood). The lodge was a great place to use the wifi, and to catch the scores of the football games. We spent a day relaxing and utilizing the resort amenities such as rental boats, kayaks, free pool table, and heated pool. The record player and large record selection is a great addition to the lodge, we used this space to hangout and held our fantasy draft here. I would highly recommend this lodge if you are seeking a relaxing weekend!
