The room is pretty small but worked ok for our family of 4. Breaker tripped off when we used hood fan, microwave and shower fan together. but staff was quick to reset and everything worked well the rest of the stay. Quiet place to spend time with family. Water was a bit colder than the beach area- walking distance away where my kids were in the water till 730p. We drove around the lake, went to China Cove- beautiful area for swim and family fun. Overall - beautiful, relaxing time by the lake.

The location and lake views are incredible. The rooms are low key, no frills. Looks like their planning a lot of upcoming renovations. One bummer, the sofa bed was wickedly uncomfortable.

Very nice lake front property. Good room size but the layout should be arranged differently. Kitchen supplies are not available for some items. Stove top is a bit too small, 4 heads stove top is ideal. BBQ area is very nice. Will return again.

Right on the lake, can't beat it! The lake and the waterfront is what your there for. The property is somewhat dates and didn't bother us. But if your expecting high end new it's not that. Cozy, vintage cabin vibe.
