Just arrived home after an awesome two night stay at this gem of a small resort. The setting is lovely. The view from the room's lanai is a pretty pond with about 20 dolphin statues, palm trees in the background. The rooms were much better than I expected, with a compact kitchen and a roomy lanai. The furniture was comfortable...

Love this place. Every year I am here with my family/friends. Staff is excellent-very charming and helpful. Grounds are well kept, love the 'tree area with the gazebo on the water. A 'Have too' check out place. Fire pit/ gazebo / near kayaking/ nature walks.

I stayed in Rock Lake For the first time it was Magical. We stayed in the Lakeside cabins which are so charming and quaint with the outdoor patio being right on the lake with Wonderful dolphin fountains everywhere. The cabin was extremely clean with brand-new bathroom fixtures and an adorable little kitchenette. They had decorated the entire woods area with...

I was fortunate enough to find this hotel on line and rooms available during Christmas week. Clean rooms, great property and friendly staff. Hiking trail, kayaking from the dock, heated pool. I stayed in one of the duplex cabins on the 1 acre lake. I'd go back again!

First thing you need to understand, if you do not get a room on the lake, find anywhere else to stay. Period. The website is deliberately misleading. So much so, the office clerk admitted that many people are angry upon checking in and finding that the 'court-side comfort' is actually across the street from the road from ALL of the...

Definitely nostalgic & comfortable. Maria in the office was so friendly and helpful. We did some fishing and grilling. The grounds were well maintained and clean. This gem exceeded my expectations. We would stay there again.

The nostalgic feel is unique. Afternoon respite on our own lakefront porch could last forever! The comfort level of the cottage makes the chain digs boring and bourgeois! Our Front Office Greeter knew that authenticity is the key to memerable lodging hospitity. Thank You!!

I spent there with my girlfriend one night, we were passing through Fort Myers. We were excited to spend the night in the house on the lake. However, it soon turned out that this place is not close to the standards that is required in the 21st century. We are a non-smoker persons. Late in the evening in a house...

We stayed here and found that it was a great value the mother of you had made it sound a little bit less attractive but it was very clean and the view of the water and the surrounding area is very charming

"Charming" is a great word for Rock Lake, thank you! Speaking of the water, did you get a chance to take the canoe out on the river while you were here? Come back and see us!
