Unplug, Unwind, and enjoy an abundance of activities

You'll be tempted to leap off the porch and into the crystal clear, yet deep blue waters to swim to the large docks we have. Schedule a time to have one of our lodge staff assist you in fishing for trout at Half Moon Lake. If fishing isn't your thing, there are horseback riding adventures, or enjoy a wine and dine on a pontoon boat during the summer seasons, or go kayaking with your friends. Maybe even take one of our picnic baskets with you and a date and go search the lake for one of the many hidden beaches. We also have an abundance of wildlife, including golden eagles that can viewed from one of the hidden beaches or from the lake.

Come with the weight of the world and leave it here! Just take home the joyful memories that you have just made.


If you don't find yourself walking just a half a mile up the shoreline to the two secluded beaches, you may decide to walk through the lodge grounds. Enjoy the various cabins as you reach the horse pens that overlook the vast mountains, often full of white pines and deciduous trees turning new colors with every season.

When you're ready to take a break, you'll enjoy a whole new perspective of the lake from any of our cabins that all have porches and outdoor covered seating. Grab a beer, or some wine, maybe some candles and soak in the rich peaceful sounds of nature and wildlife all around you.
