This "resort" has nothing going for it besides the location. Our cabin we rented smelled like mold, mildew and moth balls. The shower didn't stop leaking, the bathroom floor was... More

The owners are rude and self serving. If you bring children --- having fun is not part of their package. They have rules and the rooms are not that nice. They could sure use a good cleaning and updating!!!

Stayed here many times and staff is great, rooms are extremely clean great place! I would recommend to anyone! There is also a restaurant in the main lodge with great affordable food. The view of the sunset are breath taking and they are located on the lake very boater friendly. Just and all around great place.
