Wonderful, peaceful getaway!

This was our second time as a family (10adults/10 kids ages newborn-13) and we all enjoyed ourselves so much once again. The lodge is spacious, simple, yet has everything we need. We made our own meals and kitchen was stocked well with pans, utensils and dishes. The kids loved the beach and water! When a few storms rolled through the brought them inside, the played games in the spacious living room and rec room. We tell all our friends how wonderful it is and to keep it in mind for a family trip! It’s like you own private hotel in a beautifully secluded area with everything you need to enjoy time with family or friends! Kirksville has all anything you might have forgotten and we enjoyed finding treasures as the hitching post-an amish run discount grocery. We cannot say enough about how much we enjoy lost branch! We hope to make it back sometime when the blueberry farm across the road is open!

As a side note, the owner was gracious enough to accommodate us last minute when the vrbo we planned to stay at had bad flooding and we had to cancel. The owner had planned to work at the lodge over the days we wanted to come last minute and he changed his plans to allow us! Thank you!

The property is excellent for a large family or group!

My family has been coming to the lodge for 7 years now. I just made a reservation for 2019 too. This property has everything we could need on our family weekend. It’s private, very clean and spacious both inside and out. It works so well for my family because we come in from 4 different states and the location is pretty centralized for all of us. When i first found the property online the pics looked too good to be true. It is as lovely as the pictures indicate. We will continue to come for a weekend every summer as long as we all are able.

Very relaxing get-away place

We've had our reunion here two years in a row now. Since we're all traveling, it's nice to find a furnished place with dishes, bedding, etc.

A nice and quiet, relaxing place that is close to golf in la plata and town of you need something. The pond/lake is very clean, and the kids live swimming in it and fishing.

Great lodge for creating family memories!

We have stayed at this lodge for a few years now and love how the space accommodates our extended family. We love that each family gets their own bedroom & private bathroom and the large space to gather 19 people in the kitchen/living room area. This lodge is only a short drive from town, but it's in a very peaceful & secluded location.
Each summer we enjoy relaxing at the lodge by swimming in the pond, fishing, or spending time together on the wrap around porch. Gerald, the lodge owner, has been easy to contact and we enjoyed the property improvements like the trail and big picnic area.

We've used Lost Branch Lodge for our Leadership Retreat for about 5 years. It was nice to see how they've "freshened up" the decor. They replaced the living room furniture and added additional seating, which we really appreciated. Everything we need is there for a day retreat. I hope to get to use it for a family gathering one of these days. There are certainly enough bedrooms to accommodate a large reunion, and it would be especially fun in the summer with the pond and firepit available.
