I liked the view and amenities. I didn't like that some things were not handicap accessible

The location is very beautiful, right on the water. We were late checking in due the resort being short staffed. Apparently, no one wants to work anymore. We have seen this same problem at several restaurants as well. The rooms are comfortable, but are dated. We like the lodge and park, but the rooms need to be updated.

The view was beautiful and everything felt so peaceful not to mention the amazing view

The check in was easy and the stay was mostly pleasant. We visited the last part of March and there was no cool air. The room air only blew hot air and it had an odd odor. I was told that they hadn’t changed from heat yet. My husband had to go buy a fan at a store down the road. The WiFi also wasn’t working and we had little to no cell service.

The room was too hot. The air conditioning had been cut off for the season. It was warm outside. I have asthma and couldn't breathe well in the room. I called the front desk and there was nothing that they could do. I suggest fans in the rooms for these occasios. This room was not cheap!

Beautiful setting and nice staff. Cottage is dated and in subpar condition. First unit A/C was "frozen".; They immediately were able to switch S2 the cottage next door. However, this was an extremely damp cottage with two separate dehumidifiers although both were not running because they were full. The iron in the unit didn't work and the microwave was broken and had to be replaced while we were there. Very nice place with need for attention.

We love staying here! It is so relaxing! The restaurant has an amazing buffet and the staff is there to serve! Excellent place to stay and have a place to eat without having to drive all over the place! The marina is close also with a neat place to eat out on the water! We will be back to Barkley Lodge!!!

Very comfortable place to relax with a friendly staff. Good food service.

The staff was super friendly as always. The views of the lake from the lodge rooms are super. Kayaked around the lodge and surrounding area and was an awesome day. Marina staff was also excellent.

Broken pool Driftvwood all over broken paths. Playground un safe, over grown, tripping hazard for kids

Rooms are rustic and loved the smell of the rooms.

enjoyed our stay and fellowship with friends. Lota of good food.

While restaurant staffs were friendly breakfast, especially oatmeal was awfull, lumpy and sticky in a rather large bowl. Room smelled musty and screen door to the porch was dirty as the building was made of all woods. Perhaps people may call it rustic it was not for us.

Small rooms but the balcony and the view was everything!!

Great location for visiting family, but the rooms are not comfortable. The carpet was gross and the room smelled musty. The beds and bathroom were clean. Overall the grounds were old. The playground is in need of updating. If you are traveling with an elderly person, make sure you get a room at street level. If you have a room down stairs, the stairs are steep and there are NO elevators to that level.

It was so nice to have such a peaceful place to stay after busy days of sightseeing. The drive was nice and pleasant getting there. It was nice to see wildlife and nature on our drives in and out.
