When you arrive at our boat landing Karl will be there to call for the shuttle boat to our island for you as well as to assist you with your luggage. While you wait for the boat, Karl will happily entertain you with local history and amusing anecdotes of the area. He stays 24/7 in the little cabin we have provided him which helps insure the safety of your auto and he is as content in that cabin as most folk are in a luxury condo!

Your attention to every detail was evident from the start, our cabin was luxurious and the food is outstanding. Our kids can't wait for us to take them back next summer."

Attean Lake Lodge isn't for everyone, but for people who want to enjoy unspoiled nature without the hassles of camping, it's paradise. - read more
