What Are People Saying?

Very nice small ma & pa resort! Great owners and the accommodations are excellent. 6th year here for our annual family reunion, with our family taking all 7 cabins. We'll be back again next year! Thank You!

– Jon V.

We were a little leary because the prices seemed lower than other places in the area but it turned out to be a great little place. I'm still surprised the place wasn't completely booked.  A very quiet resort on a lake with EXCELLENT fishing. We will definitely be back.
