Customer Testimonials

Read what they are saying about us. . . .

Ask folks what they are looking for when planning their vacation and most will tell you that they seek rest and relaxation above all else. With that thought in mind, we have committed ourselves to providing a retreat from the ordinary that is becoming so elusive . . . an opportunity to leave the land of concrete swimming pools behind and re-awaken your senses to the environment in which we live. Splash into the cleanest, deepest lake East of the Mississippi and see why divers call us the “Little Bahama’s . . . Grab your fishing rod and rock hop your way out to the tailwaters of rapids that would turn waterpark developers green with envy . . . or as one of our guests said recently, “Why do the imitation when you can do the real thing!” But don’t just take our word for it . . . read comments taken straight out of the guest books in our cabins of folks who stayed here last year.

"This is the most relaxing vacation I’ve ever had. The lake is breathtaking. Enjoyed renting the boat for the day and the Cabin is fantastic. So clean, and uniquely decorated. We can’t wait to come back, maybe even this winter. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as we have. Thank you staff & Steve & Donna for keeping such a clean & beautiful vacation get-a-way."
