  • "Love our mini vacation @ Hope Lake Lodge!!!"

    Lovely place. Went for a 2 night stay from groupon. Our family of 4 stayed in the north woods suite, which was clean and nicely decorated. Our stay included in the price, 4 waterpark passes and 4 adventure park passes. We loved the mountain coaster!!! The waterpark was clean with very attentive lifeguards. While we were there we enrolled our kids in the ski school for 2 half day lessons. Our girls LOVED it! Their teacher was wonderful. They can’t wait until next year to go again. It was their 4th ever lesson (1st @ Greek peak) and by the 2nd 2 hour lesson they were riding the chairlift to the top of the mountain and skiing a green run. It was a great way to end our ski season! The restaurant was nice. Friendly waitress. We ordered 3 different soups and a burger, all of which were very good. (Bread could be better :-) ) Across the street @greek peak (2nd floor) is a nice pub with great food as well. Great waitress there as well, she so busy, yet quick and attentive. Thanks for a fun mini vacation. We will return!

  • "Wedding in October"

    During the weekend, the staff was the most professional, courteous, helpful and friendly staff that I have encountered in many years! From the room service personnel, to the front desk staff, to Nicole behind the bar, to the guy in the pick up truck delivering a load of late night bonfire wood, and all the others.

    And Shelby! She is a gem!! She was extraordinary during the entire wedding planning process, from beginning to end. She made a special point to accommodate our wedding party members with food allergies, and remembered to set aside a “private” stash of unsweetened ice tea for me during the reception. Every product and service she described during the planning process was delivered as promised, and the wait and bar staff during the reception were fabulous. Of course, the actual meal was delicious, and many of my guests told me personally how much they enjoyed the meal and setting. She truly delivers exceptional quality customer service!

  • "'Fall' in love with Hope Lake Lodge"

    I loved the feeling you get when you arrive at the grand entrance to the lodge and the casual yet upscale environment of the large open area in the main hotel. We enjoyed drinks by the fireplace, lounged in the couches and took walks around the lake to view all of the fall colors changing throughout the week! The entire staff was amazing and all of the amenities were easily accessible and so much fun. The indoor waterpark has a great environment, and the Spa is beautiful and provides a completely different experience. Each day had its own feel, ending the week with an exciting Zip Line ride through the Fall trees on Greek Peak Mountain. Although the kitchen in the room was very convenient, we enjoyed the restaurant experience every day, with friendly, personal service and exceptional food. This is a place I would love to visit in all 4 seasons!

  • "Perfect family weekend escape"

    Hope Lake was absolutely perfect for a long weekend getaway for our family. With two children ages 8 and 4, the amenities at Hope Lake truly met every need we could possibly have when it comes to traveling with children. The facilities were lovely and immaculate; the decor was warm, rustic and friendly. The customer service at every level was top notch. The Waterpark was a major highlight, and the Arcade was a nice touch for the kids. There were activities and entertainment galore. Being a mom, though, what gave me the biggest thrill was our room. The decor was themed, the fireplace was a big hit, and the full kitchen made the entire weekend so much easier. We didn’t have to run out for every little meal or snacks. It really makes a big difference. We did enjoy dinner at the Acorn Grill. The lobster mac n cheese especially gets a big thumbs up. We left talking about how we will definitely plan a return trip at some point to do some snow tubing. If we had this good a time on a dreary early November weekend, the winter must be simply magnificent!
    Stayed Nov 2013.


  • "What a Great Time!"

    We booked this resort for a 2-night stay for its proximity to a race my husband was running, but were so pleasantly surprised by everything this resort had to offer, that we will surely return just for a family getaway! The room was lovely and spacious – we had a full kitchen, fireplace, balcony with gorgeous mountain views. The waterpark with a 6 year old was HUGE hit!

    The water park was crystal clean and the lifeguard staff was amazingly attentive and friendly. The outside pool and hot tub were great and I’m already looking forward to sitting out there in the winter time! We did not use the spa or do any real outside activities, such as the Adventure Center, as we were there for a different purpose, but we would definitely take advantage of those things next time…

    …We will most definitely come back for a weekend trip in the winter…Loved our stay here!
