We stayed here in November of 2016 as our cabin is under renovation. Very nice, clean room, bed was comfortable, everything worked in the room as it should. The manager Peter was very nice and accomodating. All in all a good option in a town with very few.

I have got to tell you, this place blows away some Hilton Brands I have stayed at. First off....this place HAS IT ALL! Location- right on Lake pleasant with beautiful lake and mountain view . Campfires at night on a beautiful Fireplace overlooking the lake next to a very cool Gazebo. Rooms are SPOTLESS, beds are comfortable, and your host...

We stayed last week for one night on our way to visit our daughter in Rochester. The place was pretty empty. I would imagine that during peak season this place is bustling. It is right on the lake. The room was a good size, clean, and comfortable. The smell of cleaning solution was strong, though, so I'm guessing it was...

Only a small place with no eating facilities, but comfortable rooms. There is some noise from adjoining rooms, but no more than most hotels if the neighbours choose to be noisy. But to sit down at the fire pit and watch the sun set over Lake Pleasant is a fantastic experience. Very well worth the drive to Speculator just to...

A great stay on Lake Pleasant. Rooms were clean. The owners took great care of us. Fire pit each night was a great time to visit with other guests, roast marshmallows, and star gaze. Canoes are available and there are numerous walking paths to take in the scenery.

Lovely Motel on the lake - and in the evening we came back to find the fire-pit was a blaze - so we sat and watched the sunset over the lake and drank a few beers - perfect! The room was nice enough. A bit small - but fine for the night. The town of Speculator is a lovely little...

Clean, comfortable rooms but walls are thin(can hear people in the next room clearly), beautiful lakeside setting with cool fire pit and gazebo. The campfire in the evening was really nice to watch the sunset on the water by. Friendly staff. I would stay here again

We sure enjoyed our one night stay at the Lake Pleasant Lodge in Speculator. Very clean room, which is key for us. Quiet as well. The location is perfect for a morning walk or jog into the local park north of the lodge. Would have been even better on a warm day so we could have enjoyed the lake.

Those carpets really killed the whole place for me. The grounds were lovely, with a view of water and nice plants. Location and scenery were top notch. But the carpets! Also, there were slim pickings for dinner choices when we visited at the end of September so plan accordingly

“The grand lodge suite has a great big picture window looking out over the beach and lake. The desk clerk showed it to us when we left. It has a huge living room with 2 couches, a separate bedroom with 2 queen beds, and a huge bathroom with a whirlpool tub. We fell in love with it and reserved it for a week this fall.”
