Located on Friends Lake, rooms boast Adirondack-style décor. The outdoor fireplace on the screened porch is a popular retreat on cool evenings. The owner's dogs share public areas with the guests. In a secluded forested area, this upscale property offers exceptional water views. Adirondack-style décor adorns each luxurious guest room, creating an inviting, relaxed atmosphere. There's no better place to unwind each evening and get to know fellow guests than gathered around the outdoor fireplace located on the screened porch. The innkeepers have done an excellent job of offering plenty of activities to keep guests occupied, including opportunity to kayak, bicycle, paddle board, shoot pool and watch movies in the posh home theater; there's even a boat dock, should you wish to bring your own boat. The property encourages guests to mingle. In fact, they offer evening hors d'oeuvres, that during the warmer seasons, are served on an early evening boat ride (times vary).

Pros: I am a Genious client from Booking.com and a member of the most important Hotel clubs in the world (Leading Hotels, Small Luxury Hotels of the world, Marriott Rewards, Conde Naste Gold and so on).
I think it’s the first time I give the maximum classification to a Resort/Hotel. Fern Lodge is a High Luxury place with Top Facilities and great views from the rooms. I want to reinforce the great lake facilities, with possibilities of cayaking, canoeing, bathing in the lake, with all the best conditions. I would like too to reinforce the warmth, friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts Sharon and Susan. Thanks for all.
Pros: Fern lodge was beautiful!! Very Clean! Bed was super comfy . The room was perfect with a jacuzzi tub and fireplace! Loved it!! Staff was so nice and accommodating! Breakfast was delicious! Definitely going back!!
Cons: Going home 😔
Cons: Nature's beauty on display!
family with older children
Pros: Everything! The lodge is flat out gorgeous, the breakfast is outstanding, stunning location on a lake, outdoor hot tub, screening room, etc, etc, etc
Cons: The recreation options need updating/ repairing. Canoe needs good seats; need newer model kayaks that are more comfortable for tall people; need new ping pong net! If these suggestions were implemented, we'd raise our grade for FL from an A to an A+.
