We stayed at a cottage with our friends- 13 people total (7 children) and had a wonderful time ice fishing, tubing, hanging out during a very cold weekend. We have only been in this area during the summer so was a nice surprise. The lodge had lots to do and the place was very clean. Nice job to the owner/manager.

There is a lot to do here so no one was ever bored: swimming (pools and beach), tennis, basketball, volleyball, game room, fishing, sandy beach activities, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, etc,...

We spent a week here in a large 4 bedroom cottage. It was plenty of room for our family (parents, grandparents, and 4 grandkids). The beach was a fun place to go everyday, programming for the kids was optional (but fit in on days we could pick and choose). There is plenty to do in the area - boating, swimming... More

I've been coming here for a summer week every year for the past 6 years. I travel with 2 other families, total of 6 adults and 4 kids. We rent one of the larger, nicer cabins (a misnomer as they are much nicer than what 'cabin' implies). I really like the place, the owner is responsive and we've had some... More
