Testimonials

Absolutely beautiful place, great people and very helpful, made our vacation wonderful everything is exactly like its pictured and they truly care about their guests highly recommend and would definitely come back here again!  Marcy and family, Cabin 3, June 2022

One of the best Airbnb experiences we’ve ever had. Susan was so kind, easy to communicate with, and always around on the campgrounds. They provided EVERYTHING you need. They even had a lot of water toys. The RV is brand new. It was so clean and comfortable. We had my two year old son and It was perfect for him. There’s even a little play set outside with swings and a slide. I could go on and on. We’ve stayed at countless airbnbs but the hospitality and things provided made this a 10/10 experienceKat and family, Camper 7,  June 2022

West Crooked Lake Resort and Susan will FOREVER hold a special place in my family’s hearts!  We fell in love with this place from the moment we stayed in a camper this summer… so much so we kept coming back all summer and fall and then decided to brave the winter and stay until May!!  Susan and her team are the nicest, warm hearted souls you can come across and truly makes you feel like family.  I cannot thank her enough for the level of peace she brought to our family this year.  I am a city girl who never saw myself living in the middle of the woods in a small town but somehow magically West Crooked Lake Resort feels like home and it always will.  We spent a lot of birthdays and holidays here this year and they were all incredibly special.  Susan even left Christmas books for my kiddos and a tree to decorate.  I love this place with all my heart and memories I’ve made here will live with us ALWAYS!  Angie, Joe and family, December 2021

Great place to stay!  Thank you for having such a nice clean cabin.  Must be well insulated too.  Sure is warm and cozy.  Passing through, working.  The lake is gorgeous with the trees changing colors.  And the squirrels are fun to watch.  So many different kinds!  Almost caught a fish.  Should’ve seen it.  It was huge.  Great place.  Had a blast.  Jason, Oct 2021

This was our 2nd year in cabin 5 and our 4th year at West Crooked! We love this place! The beach is perfect for our kids and we love the small and close feel of the place.  There isn’t all the crazy madness of the big resorts.  We will continue to come back year after year!  Jeff, Heidi, Avery and Parker, July 2021

I could not recommend this place more. The cabin itself was sparkling clean and far more modern than I had anticipated. Everyone truly enjoyed themselves from toddlers and preschoolers up to Grandma. This high-stress mama especially enjoyed an hour of solitude kayaking around pretty West Crooked Lake. Many memories were made and we look forward to coming back!  Nicole, June 2019

Great cabin – clean, comfortable and all I needed. I really appreciated the privacy and solitudeJulie, May 2019

Cabin #1 was perfect for my own personal get away from the stress of work and life. I felt so at home and the cabin had everything you’d need and more! The description of the cabin is spot on and such a lovely view of the lake. I arrived around 11:30pm on a Friday night and what a surprise to sit up in bed and have a clear view of west crooked lake. The managers were amazing also! Never had to ask for anything as they were already on top of it! You won’t be disappointed if you choose any of the cabins here! I can’t wait to come back, hopefully sooner than later!!  Katie, Oct 2018

We had great time at the lake! The cabin was great! The kitchen was great for our little family, the deck had enough room to relax, grill & have an amazing view. There was a play ground for our son, a box of toys for him to use on the beach, docks for us to fish off of & paddle boats/boards, kayaks & canoes for us to make use of (which we did!) It was just the right drive to put us outside of town, in a quiet, little relaxing cove. If you need a place to rest, relax & take a break – this is the place.  Gina, August 2018

The cabin was great. We especially liked the kitchen and the barbecue. There were a lot more utensils and appliances than we expected which was nice. There were canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards available to use free of charge which are a lot of fun. The location is excellent as it is close to some great bike/hiking trails. I would stay here again.  Skylar, May 2018

Nice quiet place on a beautiful lake. The cabin is covered by trees so you can hide from hot. Provided water equipment make you vacation active and interesting. Very friendly hostsSergey, May 2018

My family had a great time at the cabin. The cabin had air conditioning and wifi which was really nice and unexpected. The fishing was good on the lake and the resort provided paddle boards, a canoe, kayaks, a water trampoline and games and movies! Overall great experience and would definitely recommend 🙂  Janelle, May 2018

This is an excellent hidden location for those who want a quiet place along with some great fishing.  Steve, June 2018

My husband & I stayed here for a long weekend the end of September. The resort being back in the woods is beautiful, quiet& calming. The lake was very clear & clean. The cabins are very clean & stocked with everything that a person needs down to coffee creamer if you happen to forget yours! We met Susan , the owner & 3 of her sisters. All very sweet & welcoming! We will be back!!!  Tracey, October 2017

We had a very enjoyable stay at West Crooked Lake Resort. The cabin was ultra clean. The lake is clear and great for boating and fishing. We also liked the wooded setting away from the main road.  Pam G, October 2017

It was our second time staying here and we loved it just as much the second time around. They provided everything we needed and we will definitely be back.  Chris, October 2017

Our family has been staying at West Crooked Lake Resort since 2011 for our summer family vacation. We love the personalized, family-oriented atmosphere that Susan and her family provide from the beautiful landscaping and clean, well-appointed cabins (our family has stayed in cabins #3 and #5 in the past and now stay in #2) to the fun activities for every age group. During our stays, we have had children of all ages from babies up to teenagers as well as multi-generational adults, and cabin #2 has always accommodated our needs whether by including thoughtful amenities such as baby gates, a cot in the closet with extra sheets and pillows, or a washer and dryer or by providing enough space in the three-level cabin that one can find a quiet corner to read or relax in amid a large family group. There’s also the wonderful wrap-around deck and lower patio for enjoying as well. On the lake and outdoors, the older kids and adults love the paddleboat, the “Bongo” (water trampoline), kayaking and canoeing while the little ones enjoy paddling in the clear water near the shore, building endless sandcastles (with all the fun building tools provided), and playing on the playground. All of these activities are within view of each of the cabins. We really only leave the resort mid-week to head to Nevis or Park Rapids for additional provisions; otherwise, we are content to just enjoy the beautiful lake and our time together. We always look forward to hearing the first loon call and seeing the first bald eagle fly overhead. We’re so happy that we found West Crooked Lake Resort. It’s become a family tradition where we have made so many memories and look forward to making many more in the years to come.  Sasha, July 2017

If you are looking for a great place to get away and relax, Susan’s cabin will be a perfect place to go. The location is secluded and far enough from the city. The cabin itself is well maintained and up to date. The host, Susan, was nice and flexible. She was present throughout our whole stay and helped us when asked. Her brother’s family was up for the weekend too and they were great company as well. Overall, it was a great experience. My family and I will definitely come visit again.  Julia, July 2017

I have been coming back to West Crooked Lake Resort for at least 8 years. I’ve kind of lost count. Secluded in the forest, this resort is small and so lovely. The water is clean and clear. The grounds are beautiful.to do, great places to eat, and shopping to your hearts desire. I love West Crooked LakePat, July 2017

This was a wonderful find. We booked last minute as we decided to bring our dog with us for our weekend trip. Susan was a wonderful communicator and the whole experience was great. We will definitely stay there again when we are in town!  It was private, the perfect size for us and an absolutely adorable cabin in the woods.  Patty, September 2016

This is a fabulous little resort. Very quiet and has every thing you need. The one room cabin (Cabin 1)  has everything you need for a weekend stay. The kitchen is very well equipped to make a meal, whether you grill or have another meal. The deck on the one room cabin was small, but just the right size for two adults and a dog. Susan is a great hostess and will ensure you have what you need. Check it out!   Edie, September, 2016
