What a wonderful time we had here! The rooms were clean and the kitchens compact and stocked with everything we needed. The staff are great any time of day. Great tips on restaurants and activities from the front desk. The beachfront setup was wonderful, very kid friendly. Great pier with a spectacular view. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: There are rooms on both sides of the road, so ask for one on the lakeside for the best views.

We stayed in an economy room (#17). The room was clean and smelled nice. The room offered a kitchenette, complete with microwave, coffee maker, stove, oven and refrigerator. Plus a basic supply of kitchen utensils, pots and pans. They also have gas bbqs for you to use (you must bring your own bbq untensils though). The room had an LCD tv and DVD player. They also offered free DVD "rentals" at the reception desk. They also provided towels for the heated pool. Even though we were near the highway we couldnt hear it from inside the room. Although, the walls are thin and you can sometimes hear your neighbors. Over all we loved it. Being close to the lake was wonderful. The private beach has lounge chairs, picnic tables and a grass area with volley ball nets. Great for a family trip. We cant wait to stay again!

Bad customer service the staff were rude .the room stunk so bad ,the windows were so dirty you couldn't see outside.even though I paid $155 a night to stay there we couldn't take the smell and we left . We told the staff but they didn't care just said sorry we have no other rooms.
Don't waste your money this place is not worth it at all even though it is right on the lake or private beach as they said . The beach was really dirty . I was really disappointed because I did read other reviews and most of them were good but my experience was a nightmare..

This place was a nightmare...
We took off and left this place after one hour we couldn't take the smell anymore .the customer service was terrible too!we told them the bed sheets have stains and we saw pubic hair in the blanket.she just said She couldn't bring us fresh sheets because she was by herself..
They also told us this place was renovated , but it was still very old and stunk like someone died in that cabin.

The staff are the best, the rooms are cozy and comfy, the location on the lake and private beach are wonderful and lots of great stuff to do nearby. We come every year.
