Our meals were fair. Wanted our steak rare but it came out more well done. Waited a long time for our food. It was very loud, more like a cafeteria. Bar service was good and good hot wings.

Great community with a lot of amenities and things to do. We always stay at 475 Oakwood. A cute cozy clean comfortable chalet style home that is priced affordabily. Check this rental out if you are planning to stay in the Hideout.

Maybe people dont want to live in a gated community with all the amenities and activities. some people just want their house on a lake with no social life. To each their own.
