Testimonials

My Family and I have been coming to Bay View Lodge for years and we really can’t say enough good things about it.  We have found it is the perfect vacation spot for getting away for a bit from our busy lives. There are plenty of activities to keep the kids happy, and they are always exhausted at the end of the day.  All year long they are asking to go to “the cabin”.  In my opinion this is the best indicator we have found a unique vacation spot at Bay View Lodge.

As for us adults, we love all the activity options available right at the resort, along with having the option of just relaxing on the deck and watching the beautiful lake.  It seems like there is always a “Good Vibe” in the air with all the guests having fun.  The Bergs have always been great and do a fine job ensuring our vacation is a wonderful.  We would highly recommend anyone considering a vacation spot give Bay View Lodge Resort serious consideration, you’ll be very happy.  Hey, maybe we’ll see you there!

My family has been vacationing at Bay View Lodge for almost 15 years.  The well kept cabins and attentive staff set Bay View apart from other resorts, and the Berg’s treat their guests as family.  Our daughter looks forward to our week at Bay View Lodge every year.  Campfires, volleyball games, kickball, ping pong battles, kayaking, and the beautiful water are just a few of our favorite things.  One of the things we appreciate is the Bergs always striving to help make our vacation as enjoyable as possible.  For example last year, they added a water trampoline, which was a “HUGE” hit for the kids and adults alike :).  Thank you Bay View!!

“I started coming to this resort when I was 8 years old. Most people don’t know the original resort name was Bon Repoz and the cabins were pepto bismol pink. You could see them from across the lake. My parents, siblings, and cousins have taken over the resort the last week in July for years. This year will be our 48th year coming to this little piece of heaven.

My son grew up coming to this resort. Once a year he had a safe environment that he could run free and play all day and collapse in bed after sitting around the fire. He’s now 24. He talks about bring his family here one day

When Jim and Mary took over and changed the name, the resort was rejuvinated, updated. They made the place even more comfortable. Everyone I’ve brought with us through the years has loved it here.

Mary & Jim, thanks for the memories. We’ll see you again in 10 days. Can’t wait.”

“Hi MaryAnn,
Just wanted to let you know that we got the electric knife, that we accidently left at the cabin, in the mail on Friday. “The Check is in the Mail” for the postage. We had a wonderful year again this year! Thank You so much for your hospitality. The new refrigerator with the huge freezer was soooo appreciated! I hope and pray that the rest of 2012 is wonderful for you!”

“Our friends and family have been meeting at Bay View Lodge for a week every summer for a number of years. I was surprised to see that no one has posted on the guestbook for quite some time– It’s a place so special to me that I’ll take the time.

The resort is small, well located, family friendly and promotes a safe environment. The cabins are modern, well maintained and comfortable There are plenty of activities for everyone–a white sandy beach for swimming, boating (all kinds), fishing, volleyball, a playground for the kids, and even campfires at night. All day long the kids make their way to Lodge to get movies, buy soda and candy, or just “hang.”

Bay View is a relaxed, homey atmosphere. A place memories are made each and every time you go.”

“My daughter, my friends and I have been coming to Bayview Lodge since my daughter was 3 years old. Next month, she turns 18! And we aren’t even close to some of the longevity of our cabin neighbors….Bayview is a great place to vacation.

I wanted so badly to have a family tradition with my daughter and this was the perfect one. My daughter would be crushed even now if we couldn’t go that one week a year. Mary Ann and Jim do such a nice job on the cabins and the grounds – it’s truly beautiful. Mary ann’s green thumb could have her own cable TV show!

Thanks Mary ann and Jim for memories my daughter will carry with her for life. It means the world to me!”
