About SPVR

Clean & Welcoming

In the evening, you can retire to your modern cabin overlooking scenic Crane Lake for a quiet night of reading and relaxation—or join your friends at the fire pit for marshmallows and fishing stories amid the crackle of a warm fire.

We personally guarantee that the bill you receive at the end of your stay will not have any hidden or surprise charges. Need a bag of charcoal? No problem, it's free. How about some ice? That's free too. Seldom do extra charges ever appear on a bill, and if they do, you'll be made aware of them before they happen. For example, gasoline for your boat would be extra. Just about everything else is included!
