Making Memories that Last a Lifetime

For 70 years, Lost Lake Lodge has been offering guests exceptional dining and quiet serenity amidst 80 acres of woods, water, and wildlife. In 1946 Ray and Fran Schwartz began construction of Lost Lake Lodge and opened the restaurant. A year later they opened the first two cabins on the resort. Over the course of the next 12 years they built 10 additional cabins, and by 1970 they had doubled the size of the dining room, added a recreation room, enlarged the beach, and added new docks

Ownership from 1970 to the PRESENT:

When Bill and Ethelmae Carter bought the resort in 1970, they followed the same formula for success, welcoming old and new friends to the expanding lake resort. In 1987, when Tim and Cindy Moore took over, their commitment to preserving the natural setting drew more friends to the relaxed retreat. Doug and Pat Lewis brought their own touch, enhancing restaurant fare and adding dining that overlooks the Gull Lake Narrows. Rebound Hospitality took over after the Lewis' and brought their own charm to the resort. The Steffens family stepped in 2016 and is excited to be apart of the resort's history and your family vacations! 


We are committed to preserving, maintaining, and enhancing all that makes this place truly unique. The natural setting, perfect location, and dedication to exceptional service still drive our vision in every area, and we are still happily turning guests into friends and family.
