Went to The Lodge for a retreat with graduate students and was completely disappointed! Quick list - messed up our reservation, double-booked the conference room so we had to meet in the breakfast room (which was your run-of-the-mill little room with little tables and no technology), kicked our other group out at 5:00pm even though we told them we needed the space until 10pm. Even worse was the "lasagna dinner" which we were required to have catered. The entire dinner consisted of bland lasagna on a cheap, flimsy paper plate with no salad, no drink, no appetizer, and bread that was really not part of the deal but we were given some since there was a pan of it sitting around! Caterer then tried to make it better by making a run to Publix for box brownies and Publix brand ice-cream. Manager basically said sorry but all that was in the contract??????!!!! Yes...never going back. Oh - not much of a scenic location either and the name should be Highway Lodge rather than focusing on the tiny bit of land between the lodge and the lake. Very disappointed - will post again if manager offers more than an apology.
