Looking for information on Baumann's Brookside. I have plans to stay there soon and was wondering if anyone has any input on the resort. Thanks
Do you still need info. on Baumanns? I can help.
Yes, I would love to hear your comments on Baumann's.
Hi. Let's see - where to start. This Aug. will be my 13th year in a row!! My family has been coming even longer than that. A bunch of our family members come the first week in Aug. every year. There are quite a few of us. My kids could not imagine if we skipped a year. The food is really good - prepare to gain some weight.
With that being said the resort is very old. I don't think the furnishings in the room have been changed in 50 years (lol). We stay in Yankee Hall every year which is sort of a little house that contains 4 separate bedrooms. My family occupies this completely. I think its the best spot in the place (also not the most expensive) but I woulnd't want to share Yankee Hall with other people I didn't know as there is a shared porch (know what I mean?). Housekeeping is sort of spotty. We know that going in though.
The place is really good with kids. They have different activities for them. Egg hunts, a climbing wall, big pool, bingo, crafts, pony rides. etc. At night in the rec hall everyone gets a table. We all shop for snacks, drinks, etc. and hang out there every night. There is music. Place does get loud. Late night drinking does go on but I'm gone by that time.
I'm sure I'm leaving tons out so if you have specific questions I'd be happy to answer. Also, we were in their brochure a few years ago - that was funny.
Thanks so much for your info. We (just my hubby and I) are going mid week in Aug. The week before labor day.
I hope you have a good time!
