I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to leave a review. We counted this year and realized it was our 9th visit. Chelka Lodge is a very special place. A hidden gem among beautiful private homes on a gorgeous cove. The children are safe to swim off a Sandy beach with a gradual depth. Kayaks and paddle boards are provided and their are plenty to share among the other visitors. That’s the other plus, the other guests are friendly and respectful. We’ve developed wonderful friendships with people we see each summer. Dave and Judy are there to help but will leave you to enjoy a book or two on the grassy lawn. There are several different accommodations to choose from. There’s no doubt how much work Dave, Judy and their family put in to keep Chelka Lodge a special place. My children count down all winter until we return to our home away from home. To Dave and Judy, thank you for providing a place for my family to make beautiful memories.
