My family and I have been coming to this resort for years. The rooms are super quaint with the utmost beautiful views. The location is one of my very favorites on the entire lake. The staff is always very friendly and there to accommodate your needs.

This is a family friendly resort with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The people are all very kind and do whatever they can to make sure that you enjoy your stay. I recommend staying in one of the waterfront cabins. We really enjoyed our stay.

This has to be one of the worst managed, most poorly maintained resorts that I have ever visited in my life.... Although the trip with friends is always stellar - because of the company - Buchanan Resort is disgraceful! Not even sure where to start - from drains that look like they have never been cleaned out (nothing drains due...

We stay at this resort with multiple family members every other year. I was pleased to see over the past few years that they updated their pool, some of the cabins and the Annabel Center. However, more updates are needed such as fixing the sliding doors in the cabin and properly stocking the kitchens in both the cabins and Annabel...

We stayed at Buchanan Resort with our family in July 2016. Our cabin was perfect for an extended family of 6. The cabin was clean and had a great view with private beach. Growing up on a lake, please only expect a lake entrance, but its yours. Screen doors are hard to open but while there our handy man was...

We have stayed at Buchanan Resort for the past several years in a standard cabin. Each year we find that their condition continues to decline. Buchanan's could be a wonderful resort with a great location on the lake. However, it has become obviously apparent that the management does not care about keeping up the property, nor do they give a...

The negative comments you'll read are accurate. But, you have to understand this is in a rural country lake area....it's not a 'resort' at all, that's just a part of the name, not reality. If you are coming here expect average or below as described. It's sad but they do not do anything anymore to keep it clean or maintained...

Staff was friendly as long as you didn't need to ask for something like clean towels or extra toilet paper. The suite/house was not what we expected at all. They were dirty and smelled bad. For the amount of $$ they charge you'd expect a nice clean room. The restaurant was ridiculously expensive they charged separate for everything a cheeseburger...

This was once a great place . I think the management has gotten lazy because the grass hasn't been mowed all summer and the bath houses are nasty . Spiders in the toilet and sinks . The beach area was grown up and had gullies washed in it . The manager is obsessed over the gate being locked and is...

I stay here several times every year. I organize a fishing trip with several friends and this is the place we choose to stay. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable and the rooms or cabins are usually comfortable. They have a decent restaurant on site as well as a marina.
