Most of our guests are housed in one of our three lodges each sleeping 20. There are no telephones in rooms, no cell service, and no TV so your relaxation is assured. Our chef will carefully prepare buffet meals from which you will make your selections. The buffet is served in our paneled dining room with splendid views of Sagamore Lake. Everyone is called to meals by the bell. One of the highlights of our dining experience is our excellent water. Please do not bring bottled water with you. You may purchase beer and wine to accompany your meal. The dining hall seats 84. During free time many of our guests enjoy our 20 miles of hiking trails, playing giant lawn games, and canoeing. Sagamore also recommends its history-based DVDs. Porch-sitting is also highly recommended.
