The wifi was excellent, consistent and good signal. Great for anyone needing to do some business while away. The room had a few dealbreakers for us, so that colours how we felt about the place. Most importantly, we leave the city for fresh air, and we all sleep with windows open throughout the year. The room windows have no screens... More

Great resort for families and retirees situated on a long, private sandy beach. Lake water is warm with no steep drop offs. Excellent for children. Close to an ice cream store and walking distance to town. Outstanding number of golf courses nearby and many more vineyards for tasting and buying wine. Oliver has many biking trails and bikes are available... More

Pros The suite was spotless and well-equipped in the kitchen Relaxing and quiet even though there were families with kids. No loud music. Everyone at the resort seems to respect the resort policy. Quiet times from 11pm to 7am. This allows for a restful night sleep as all guests adhered to the policy. Suite faces the lake...the private beach is... More

Nicely hidden within city limits. Tucked away on shore of a tiny lake. Units are dated yet tidy,clean and comfortable. Pleasure to stand on balcony listening to variety of birds during early morning. Looks like a great spot for family vacations.

Words cannot explain the natural beauty found here. And it is so close to amenities as well. The kids loved the nearby Eastside grocery which offers ice cream and other great kid friendly treats. The lake is great and the owners make sure you are treated like a king. Try it folks, i assure u that you will be back.... More

What a gem. Stayed in a cabana. Exactly what I expected and paid for. People that run this place are amazing and friendly. Lots of camping or RV ing spots. Just damn pretty cool. I'll be back next year and year after. Thanks! Negatives: damn birds so loud.

Oh not not noisy birds!!! So glad to hear you enjoyed your time in our cabanas. They're certainly a unique way to stay that appeal to many people that don't want a full-on room but also don't want to camp! More

Sally and Dawn, as always, our two weeks with you were amazing. Our entire Irwin crew loved every second of it, even the crazy weather storms.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Lakeside and have really enjoyed our time there...the washrooms and showers were clean... The water access is close and overall everyone was respectful of each other's campsite...there is no real store or easy access to coffee or snacks if needing something unless you head back into town

Thank you for taking the time to review our resort! As I mentioned in the preceding reply, our store has shrunk over the years based on demand. People seem quite happy to go to town for most things so we mostly just keep junk food now!! Sorry if you were inconvenienced! More

Thanks for your great review! We used to have a store that sold more things that campers require however over the years we've found less and less demand. We are only a mile from town where there is everything you need so our store specializes in all the yummy stuff: candy, chocolate, ice cream etc. More
