Jackson's Lodge is a popular summertime place for all ages. Constructed from norway pine logs in the spring of 1935, the Lodge is one of the few remaining large log structures from that era. Our fireplace attracts guests in the evening, while kids play a variety of games. We also operate a small bar where adults can meet fellow guests and swap tales over a friendly drink.


The most popular feature at Jackson�s is our waterfront. The clear water of West Bay is a great place for a swim as we do not get summer algae blooms like many lakes get. The lake bottom is sandy and slopes gently making it ideal for children. A lawn area adjacent to the lake provides a terrific place to just relax.
