"Lake front view" was blocked by trees. Our room was not connected to the main property, which was not clear upon booking. The main property only had a pub - there was no nice dinner option (except on Saturdays?) We were expecting (for the price) a luxury lake property with resort amenities like dining. What we got was a "Great Wolf Lodge" feel and a room in the basement of a very detached apartment building "villa" driving distance from the main lodge.

We stayed in one of the cabins overlooking the lake. It was very quiet and secluded and could accommodate 8 if using the convertible sofa in the great room. Large deck with picnic table and gas grill as well as a fully equipped kitchen.

I had no idea this was where the Ozarks was filmed, but that just made the property even better. The rooms were wonderful and the view was unbeatable! We were not happy with the dining options, but loved the beach and water park areas. We only stayed one day, but it may have been more enjoyable if we had been able to stay longer. Too much to do for only one day.

Ok hotel. Location - excellent. On property services - water, buffet, bar, vending machines - very costly, so would advise people to take water and alcohol with them.

Being handicap, there was a lack of assistance from staff to accommodate and lack of consideration for needs. There was a conference starting in the time frame of our stay and the staff seem to have been concerned with catering to their needs. Was out by the pool 2 diff afternoons and we weren't offered any service for drinks or food, even though there were staff constantly walking by and delivering to others. The friendliest people of the whole lodge were actually working the pool towel station, very courteous and gracious Rented golf cart for entire stay, only to find our that I couldnt even drive it to the handicap parking for the beach area. We werent told of this either until we turned to go into the parking lot and the cart immediately cut off, because gps registered it as off property, which we were not. Then we were stuck on a very steep embankment with vehicles behind us. This was very hazardous and scary being handicapped and unable to get off and try and remove from roadway. This lodge is not affiliated with the Margaritaville part of Lanier islands. Lodge was fairly clean, I found a nasty moldy towel under our towel rack under the sink that appeared to have been there for awhile,grounds were immaculately kept. Nice paths for walking, vending didnt work properly on several floors. Food menu and choices were very sub-par.
