Great place to stay. Cabins are clean and well equipped. The cove had good food and great service. The only thing that would be better is if they had a boat ramp and a fish cleaning station. We will definitely be back next year to stay again. Well worth extra $.

Thank you for your great review. We are always glad to hear that our guest had a great time at Acorns Resort and we strive each day to make each stay the best it can possibly be. Unfortunately, because Acorns is so close to the Farnum Creek boat ramp, the Corp of Engineers will not approve Acorns to have its...

Our appetizers were burnt -- we sent them back and they came out burnt a second time, my husband ordered the walleye dinner and his fish was bunt as well -- maybe the oil was bad -- I ordered the firecracker shrimp, my shrimp was cold. We told our waitress about our frustration and we offered to tell the manager,...

My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days for a mini vacation. The resort staff was friendly, everything was as expected and went without a hitch. The cabin was clean, well stocked and cool on a very hot day. The grounds are very well maintained and the hiking trail within the property was just the right length....

The place is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. A great place for a week or a couple of days! The food at the lodge is extremely good. Had one of the best cheese burgers I have ever had! The fishing was really great! My wife caught a 30.5 lb blue catfish. A really fun trip!

We stayed for 3 days in the middle of the week. I would recommend this if you can because there really were no crowds and few boats on the lake. I hear it's a mad house on the weekends. Our cabin was average, clean with all the basics covered. The beds were on the hard side. The big issue we...
