What People Are Saying About Sugar Lake Lodge
“Our family just stayed here for the first time last week. The lake was absolutely gorgeous! So relaxing. The staff was so friendly and so helpful, it made us feel so welcomed! Kraig at the front desk was awesome and always helpful! Our villa was great! We played two rounds of golf, enjoyed the pontoon boat, did some fishing, enjoyed the pool, and loved the beautiful grounds! We are hoping to make it a point to come back here every year! As a family who doesn’t get away very often at all because of work and business, it was uplifting and made us feel so relaxed! Thanks again!”
“We have a group of 8–15 guys that have played in an annual golf event here for the past 22 years. The resort and lake are beautiful, the golf course is unique and challenging, and the accommodations and food are excellent. However, what sets this place apart from others is customer service. Fred Bobich and his staff are tremendous and go above and beyond to make our stay so amazing! On behalf of the whole Guts & Glory Golfers, thank you so much!!!”
“SLL is our favorite annual vacation. We think we’ve been coming here for 19 years. We’ve lost track it’s been so long! From kid’s camp to smores with Casey by the fire, kayaking, SUP, yoga by the lake, pickleball, tennis, basketball, volleyball, ping pong, the pool, the beautiful golf course, coffee cruise, and the best customer service! The list goes on and on. We are staying later than normal this year over Labor Day, so we’re enjoying free golf and free breakfast, which is amazing! Most beautiful lake around and those sunsets! Thank you, SLL, for making this our favorite vacation spot. (We drive six hours just to get here and it’s well worth it!)”
“The staff went above and beyond to make sure I had what I needed! They even upgraded my room simply because it was available! It’s a beautiful place to stay! Helpful concierge. Thoughtful amenities. Quiet rooms. Spacious rooms. Family friendly. Romantic atmosphere. Great hotel bar. Good room service.”

“I led a retreat here in late October 2017, and the service, hospitality, friendliness, and enthusiasm of the staff were all delightful. A lovely resort in a lovely setting! We enjoyed some memorable meals too. We were very well cared for. And my suite was homey, comfortable, and a nice little oasis during a blustery early season snowstorm. Kudos to Sugar Lake Lodge! And thank you!”
