I have been coming to Cedar Lodge for the past seven years – usually twice a year. When I walk into the main area I start to feel my tension drain away. This is a very low key serene place. The staff are wonderful caring people who always take the time to chat and make you feel at home. The meals are absolutely fabulous!! I have been on numerous cruises and the meals here are comparable to the ones on the cruise ships. You can tell that they are cooked with love. I truly appreciate the fact that there are no TV’s or phones in the rooms – that adds to the relaxing calming atmosphere. This is definitely one of my favourite places to visit!! S.

Cedar Lodge provides the perfect environment for creating meaningful successful ‘people experiences’ which explains why I and so many other organizations, groups rebook again and again. It’s what happens here … the experience itself that makes Cedar Lodge so unique. REST RESTORE RENEW … It provides the perfect setting to step away from life’s hurried pace to rest, restore and renew, and when people are relaxed, well nourished and nurtured, everything seems to improve – thinking, communication, how you relate to each other, willingness to share / collaborate … the list is endless. That’s what make it the perfect setting for the annual weekend retreats I host and why it’s my first choice for venue. You can almost watch people unwinding, slowing down, relaxing. The Cedar Lodge team’s TLC is evident in so many ways, the food is fabulous and cooked with love, the presentation is amazing and the table settings are always nicely arranged. The retreaters consistently comment on feeling so comfortable and nurtured here. Cedar Lodge’s future plans include work on the lodging rooms themselves which are clean and frills free, which sometimes may surprise those accustomed to having all amenities in their room. We found we spent very little time in our actual rooms.We and other lodgers seem to migrate to the beautiful great room where the coffee/tea water is always on, and there are plenty of comfy couches to relax in,visit or chillax and look out at the lake. Very tranquil. For those who are looking for a place to provide a time out to rest, restore and renew, Cedar Lodge is it. It is my first choice for the Weekend Women’s Retreats I host annually ! S.

I have been to Cedar Lodge twice with the Kipling Kloggers and I want to say that I loved it there. I hope to be there with the cloggers again this spring. Best wishes for your continued wonderful work. L.Brickley
I was at Cedar Lodge during a school field trip for 2 nights. February 2013. The food has a huge delicious variety – the place was great for us kids to explore. The bedrooms were small but cozy. The grand dining hall is quite the place with its wheelbarrow lighting and the stage. The view is very impressive and amazing. I highly recommend this resort. Michelle Sinclair
Thank You. Just want to say we had a wonderful Board and Staff Planning Weekend at your facility in January of 2013. We needed to make some changes in the meeting room scenarios and your staff just made things happen! I totally appreciate your flexibility and we look forward to a long term commitment at your facility. Everything was wonderful – food was amazing !! …and I think that our staff should connect sometime with your staff, as we would love to just come out and learn from your food decorators how to carve “lemon mice” and “love birds” from apples some day. I appreciate all that you do! We already re-booked for next year! Thank-you from the DSI Staff! Executive Director/Dance Saskatchewan Inc
From the moment I stepped through the door I was made to feel so welcome. Keith bringing me coffee while Linda instantly helped me to feel at home and so comfortable while we talked about the possibilities for our event. Then to arrive and have Doris and Joe be so helpful in set up and hauling stuff and Sandra checking in to see if we needed anything else. Then the kitchen comfort team ministered to us through beautiful Sonia and delicious food prepared lovingly: Janet & Linda/butter tarts! Yum! It is no wonder amazing things happened! I thank you for your quiet service in caring for our group, me and all those who are fortunate enough to pass through your doors. Blessed by you all! Shelley
We had a wonderful time at Cedar Lodge. The evaluation forms mention the excellent food, scenic setting and accommodating staff. I was amazed by all the beautiful touches that went beyond what anyone would expect, such as the table settings and decorative food display. I think everyone enjoyed the experience. We are planning to be back next year from Sept. 17-22 and will happily give a deposit. Once again we will have to give it in installments – October, March and July. We would, however, like confirmation on the 2011 cost of facility use, meals and rooms, as we need this for our budgeting and planning in the coming year. There will likely be a similar number of students. We are prepared to book the same week every September for the next 10 or more years. Once again, thank you and the staff for all your kindness.

I am very pleased to write a testimonial about Cedar Lodge, where together with the other members of the Board of Directors of the Saskatchewan Soccer Association, I spent this past weekend, September 24-26, 2007, engaged in a very successful and pleasant strategic planning retreat. I don’t think there is any other retreat locale (and I have been to a number of them) quite like this one. Cedar Lodge is a wonderfully rustic complex that overlooks scenic Blackstrap Lake and its beautiful surrounding woodlands. The rooms are well appointed and very clean; all of the normal amenities are provided. What is really striking about the place, however, are the staff and the menu. There is an ease and natural friendliness in the manner of the staff, who make every effort to meet one’s needs, including providing specially requested meals, meals at odd times of the day, and snacks (home-made cookies or muffins, for example) at mid-morning and mid-afternoon. The food tastes as if it were cooked by your mother (or father!) and there is much variety in the meals (and snacks) served from day to day. It is no exaggeration for me to say that I haven’t had Yorkshire pudding (the real thing!) like that in years! (more…)
On behalf of the Committee organizing our retreat, I want to express my appreciation to you and your staff for your assistance in planning and hosting our event. The food was fabulous, your staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Great Room was a wonderful place to have it. Everyone who attended was very happy and we feel this is one of the best retreats we have ever had. Thank you again!

These are the most loving and caring people I have ever met. God Bless. Reg and Geeta Regunath, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
