We read about this resort in the Kansas City Star a few months ago and decided to book a weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday and the last weekend before school started. We stayed in Cabin 2 and were pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and came with everything we needed for the weekend. The outdoor living was great as well. We enjoyed the fire pit and it was nice to have a table with chairs on the patio. We will definitely returning!! Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Room Tip: Cabins 3,4 and 5 overlook the water. Cabins 1 and 2 are a quick walk to the water.

Oh my! Originally we were looking for anywhere to stay that was near I-70 and within 2 hours of Beatrice, NE where we were going to view the total eclipse. And when we saw this "cabin in the woods" online we booked it immediately. Prior to our arrival, the staff contacted us to see if we had any special requests, etc. which was wonderful! When we arrived, we fell in love with everything. The resort is perfect! Organized, clean, well thought out and on the largest lake in Kansas! The cabin was a dream come true. Surrounded by trees it gave us the feeling that we were out here on our own piece of heaven. The interior is awesome, was equipped with everything we needed and our 25 year old son could stand up in the loft which was something we did not expect! The Cove Restaurant provided excellent service, great food and a terrific view of the lake. After dinner we gathered around a campfire outside our cabin to talk about how wonderful this place is! This truly was a great experience and we look forward to returning. Next time we'll take advantage of the lake! Thank you for everything Acorns Resort!

Room Tip: Several cabins have lake views!

Had a great time taking 4 boys from 8 years old to 17 years old canoeing and kayaking. The staff is friendly, informative and made it easy to swap out a canoe for available kayaks. We snacked at one of their picnic table areas and then swimming at their beach. Looking forward to staying in one of the cabins or at the lodge soon! Very well run and clean resort. They seem to have it all!

Another amazing year at Acorns. Cabin was ready to go when we arrived - clean and cool. Cabin 5 is my favorite, right on the beach and close enough to walk to the marina and restaurant. This time of year I'd recommend a citronella candle and bug spray.

Loved meeting other families on the beach. Everyone was kind and generous, our children played together and shared water toys.

We had 3 adults and 2 children in our cabin (ages 4 and 2). Tight fit, but definitely doable. Could have squeezed one more in if needed and slept 2 on the futon.

Can't wait to come back next year!
