 Why Choose the Decoy Lodge?
Simply put, because we care about your stay and we want to see you come back.   
The Decoy Lodge is more than just a rental property to us, its our second home.  As you can see, we've put a lot of work into the lodge and we continue to make improvements.  We guarantee you will have an elevated experience each time you visit, we're continually upgrading and enhancing the lodge. 
The Decoy Lodge owners both work in the Meetings and Hospitality industry.  Dan spent 17 years with Hyatt Hotels in the U.S. and Canada, before transitioning to luxury hotel sales.  Lisa has been planning trade association events at some of the country's top hotels and resorts for years.  Guess how we met!?
When the Lodges of Bluewater were originally developed, every cabin had identical in furnishing and amenities.  When the units became privately owned in 2016, some owners chose to leave their cabins as standard rentals and others have customized their units to give them a true "Northwoods" feel.  The Decoy Lodge is one of those cabins that has been fully customized and continues to get better month after month.  Below is a list of upgrades and additions you'll find in The Decoy Lodge.  While all the cabins look the same on the outside, each is very different on the inside.
