Ann Arbor, Michigan
Reviewed 16 September 2015

It can be peaceful with the lake and trees, or you can let your kids splash and scream in the pool (or other on-site activities - mostly water). Food is delicious, but breakfast and dinner only. You'll probably want to head out some of the days and visit the local scenes - flea market, Lake Michigan, etc.

Say, I am so glad you mentioned that we don't do lunch- just breakfasts and dinners. We actually did all three meals for 28 years, but found our guests were golfing, fishing, going to Lake Michigan (the other great lake), antiquing, biking, etc and couldn't get back for lunch. So that was when we put the small kitchens in the...

This is our 7th year going to Oak Cove Resort. I would definitely recommend Oak Cove. Bob and Sue are fantastic hosts. The lake is beautiful, the pool is warm, the people are very friendly and the food is excellent. We already made our reservations for next year and can't wait to be back to our "happy place"!

Booked a short visit last minute when extended family plans fell though - ended up staying an extra day and would have liked to stay longer. We lucked out that it was near end-of-season, it's usually book well in advance. Absolutely ideal for our 12 year old son and 8 year old daughter to enjoy some independence roaming the grounds,...

We took our kids ages 3, 5, and 7 to Oak Cove this weekend. We played on the beach - swimming, paddleboating, paddle boarding, and fishing most of the time. There are so many amenities in the beach and we had plenty of space to run around. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and so convenient with little ones. Once they...
