Resort has great view of Dixon Lake and is in a quiet area. The resort itself needs some TLC. Electrical outlets are old and don't work well, toilet had minor issue with running. Overall, probably would not recommend

Not impressed at all. Stairs to the water are dangerous. Shower was dirty. Bathroom smelled like urine. Mattresses need to be thrown out. You can feel the springs digging into your body. Could not even access the water. Never again!

Hidden Gem!
Really enjoyed our last minute 4th of July weekend stay at Dixon Lake. The room had a beautiful lake view with all the supplies needed for our stay. The small lake was perfect for paddle board and floating and a small row boat was available for use. Looking forward to a return visit.

The room was clean and the beds were comfy. The view of the lake is phenomenal. Quiet and peaceful property while located close to stores and restaurants. I’d book again if visiting Gaylord.
