Detroit Lakes Hotel Amenities

Beautiful, family friendly lake resort! My family stayed in the family suite for three nights. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom was large, and there was a door between the living room area and the bedroom, which is great when your kids go to bed hours before you do. The property was well tended. The small beach was kept very clean. I had a great massage at the spa. The included breakfast offered a lot of choices.

Prior to the Lodge being built, my husband and I owned and operated the Castaway Motel & Resort, our first Detroit Lakes hotel, which was torn down along the space where the Lodge now is. We dreamed about this for 15 years before opening in 2006. It’s located along 550 feet of lake shore on the East Shore of Big Detroit Lake, and each room faces the lake. One of our mottoes is,  “Come for the sunsets, stay for the experience.”
