Located steps from the Lodge, Echo Lake is a 19+ acre, spring-fed, private lake surrounded by woods and stocked with rainbow trout, small mouth bass, perch and minnows. No fishing license is required. Our policy is "catch and release" unless you're going to eat it that day. Its clear water is perfect for swimming, canoeing, fishing, row-boating around or just relaxing and enjoying the view. There is a swim raft floating in the lake about 25 yards in front of the lake-deck. An outdoor table and chairs on the deck is a perfect place for a quiet lunch or noisy game with the kids.
The large sandy beach next to the lake-deck is about 50 feet from the Lodge's screened porch and a great place for the kids to use their sand toys; so be sure to bring them. The fire-pit, located at the top of the beach is a safe place for a night-time bonfire and sing-along; adding roasted marshmallows to graham crackers and chocolate (s'mores) isn't a bad idea either. Just behind the beach is a large open area where we have set up a net for volley ball or badminton; we have provided the equipment for your enjoyment.
