  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Upon check-in we realized we were in the motel section, not a private cabin. We were initially disappointed. However, after seeing the view from the motel, we were happy with where we were staying. The view of the lake from our window was very nice. In the evenings, we sat at the picnic table outside our room and enjoyed the beautiful and relaxing setting. We had a very nice stay! The staff were all very nice. I recommend it. If you want frills this is not your place. If you want a relaxing environment, you will be happy.

“Resort” seems to be a loosely defined term for a number of properties in the area, and this property falls within those loosely defined terms. Our two bedroom cabin was simple, dated, and rather tired looking; however, it was clean, and it effectively met all of our need with two exceptions — the hot water was more in the luke warm temperature range, and there wasn’t a full length mirror in the entire cabin. . He staff was friendly and helpful, but the office is not open 24 hours. Emergency numbers are posted, and it would seem that the staff readily responds to such emergencies because an issue with water quality emerged (which seemed to be an issue with the city water rather than something that was the fault of the resort) and it must have been reported by another guest because we awakened to a gallon of drinking water that was left at our door. Use of paddle boats is complimentary for guests. I hope to return to the area within the next five years, and there is about a 50% chance that I will stay at this place again. It is centrally located to most of the South Dakota attractions I wish to revisit, and the spaciousness of the cabins lends itself well for family accommodations.

Nice stay

The cabin I stayed in was very cozy, clean, and comfortable. It had all of the amenities I needed. The staff was very friendly and kind and helped me whenever I needed it. The decor was a bit dated but I loved it, it felt very nostalgic to me. I Would definitely stay here again.
