The Shadow Lake Lodge is a huge wooden structure at Shadow Lake reached by a tree-lined road that becomes a dark tunnel of leaves that are adjoined by a row of smaller wooden buildings that look like stores. It's like a hotel, but there aren't any rooms to sleep in.
One of the activity rooms in the lodge has a ballet barre. It also serves dinners and dances are held there. The dining room is enormous and the lodge also includes a ballroom, souvenir counter, a weights & workout room, and several activity rooms. The souvenirs sold at the counter are blue Shadow Lake baseball caps.
You can sign up for activities at the information desk. The employees at the lodge wear royal blue shirts with the words "Shadow Lake Lodge Staff" embroidered on the pocket in white. Most of the staff members are noted to be "very cute."
