“Fam vaca”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Loved the location, easy water access from our private dock and the resort beach. This is a small resort so not tons of people or noise. The owners were very nice and helpfull. Our cabin had everything we needed for our family but we would recommend bringing your own pillows. The kids LOVED the stand up paddle boards and small pontoon dock out in the cove to jump off. We all enjoyed taking an evening paddle around the quiet lake.

“Fantastic Vacation Destination”
Reviewed October 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you're looking for a perfect
place to spend a few days
or a week
Then a trip to Cresthill Resort
on Placid Lake is just what
you should seek
If it's quiet you wnat then
you will love reading a book
on the beach
Or sitting on the screen porch
viewing natures' wonders
for as far as your eyes
can reach
And if you are the active
type, you can take the kayak
or paddle board out for
a spin
Because whatever you want
is at your fingertips and
either way you'll win
At night, you'll hear th eloons
talking back and forth
Or you can listen to the
wolves howling softly and
know that you're really "Up
"North"
Our cabin came fuly equipped
so we didn't have much to
pack
So when we arrived at our
cabin, we could be very
"laid back"
Our host and hostess, Scott
and Kay really made us feel right
at home
And when we'd want to go
for a walk, or two, they'd
suggest just where to roam

*We really had a great time. We'd highly suggest Cresthill Resort as a fantastic vacation destination!

Thank you for the positive review and constructive comments Jennifer. We do have permission from the DNR for thinning the brush and small trees along the shore line this fall. We look forward to seeing you and your family again. Sincerely, Scott & Kay

Hello Jeffery and Sue,
We apologize that your vacation did not meet your expectations. Many of our guests arrive with the specific goal of relaxing and doing nothing. Evidently you had other ideas. That being said, as an active vacation community this area abounds with unlimited tourist possibilities. We were available during your stay to offer advice as to the possibilities if you had asked.
Right now fishing is great on our lakes. Everyone is catching Bass and Northerns with frequent Muskies being boated. Again we were available for advice. As a consolation we did refund the cost of your motor.
As far as the air in the cottage, we had some rain, the temps were in the upper 80s to low 90s with 80-90% humidity while you were here. That is stuffy in anyone's book.
The guests the preceded you return with their family every year and those that followed you immediately had the time of their lives. All of our reviews have been positive except yours. Once more, we are sorry that you did not enjoy your vacation.
Sincerely, Scott & Kay

“Fabulous”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a great time. The owners of the resort were exceptional and provided above and beyond customer service. The cabin was great and was exactly how it was described. The lake was beautiful.

We went into town and it was fantastic. Make sure you visit the Irish shop there and see if the owner will play some music from his Irish flute.
