Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge has been a family owned resort since 1898. Our tradition of treating every guest like family rests firmly on four things: service as our #1 priority, our attitude toward our guests and our fellow employees, consistency in our high service standards, and teamwork – making each other look good.
