Hello, We had an unusually hot week last week, but temperatures are now cooling down to between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day (cooler at night). We do have box fans in most of the rooms, or you can request fans from the front desk. You do not need beach chairs -- we have a supply of adirondack chairs on the lakefront beach, along with some benches; we also have lounge chairs around the pool.
