Reviewed 18 October 2016

We went up for the Canadian Thanksgiving and the resort was hopping! A full calendar of activities and cool, but perfect Fall weather. The outdoor, heated pool was perfect, as was the indoor pool and hot tubs. Kayaks were available, as were fishing lines. We stayed in a jacuzzi room and enjoyed reading on the lakeside porch.

The atmosphere at this time of year is fun and exciting and the fall-themed activities and look and feel of the resort make it a wonderful experience...
