Delicious dining amongst family and new friends at Shady Rest Lodge.


At Shady Rest Lodge the meals are always a highlight of your stay. Breakfast and evening dinner are served in our dinning room overlooking MansonLake. So that there is no worry about getting a table, every guest will have their own during their stay, and our staff will ensure that each guest is served with the utmost respect and concern for their satisfaction. 

Our breakfasts start with a bowl of hot or cold cereal and baked goods such as cinnamon rolls, strawberry bread, or blueberry muffins followed by a traditional home-cooked meal such as eggs (cooked just the way you like them) and bacon; buttermilk pancakes and french toast with sausage. We have a brunch on Wednesday mornings with an amazing fruit bar filled with strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, watermelon, and pineapple, and a hot bar featuring meatballs, ham and cheese crepes, hash browns, breakfast quiche, scrambled eggs, sliced ham, bacon, and escalloped apples. The desert table has the highly requested fruit kringles as well as another sweet confection. We also serve great coffee, a variety of juices, and milks to go along with your breakfast. 

Your dinners will begin with a basket of freshly baked homemade bread with varieties such as oatmeal, wheat, anadama,white, or poppy seed, and at your leisure you can frequent the salad bar which offers homemade salad items and all your favorite traditional salad extras. With dinner such steak, pork chops, fish and barbecue ribs & fish, mexican and italian night, a cook out night, and the ever popular Thanksgiving night, we trust you will have your fill of wonderful home-cooked meals. But your meal would not be complete without a cup of coffee and indulging in one of the many tried and true SRL desserts: homemade crumb top apple pie with icecream, brownie sundaes, carrot cake, double chocolate cream cheese cake, and a variety of variuos cheesecakes.
