Elizabeth Lake Lodge History
Elizabeth Lake Lodge was built on the location of the Ponderosa Motel. It has been our endeavor to re-orientate the lodge towards the bird sanctuary. We now have all our rooms looking out, over this 250 acre wetland.
The following is a timeline since George and Rachel have taken over.
Phase 3 was completed in the summer of 2016 with landscaping continuing throughout the year.
