“Wonderful Accommodations”

Thank you so very much for the wonderful accommodations. The area was absolutely beautiful. Just to name a few of the exciting elements experienced during our stay were the boating, fishing, basketball, tennis, campfires, floating water trampoline, swimming pool, outdoor hot tub in gazebo, beautiful view to the Cove and Bay area, beach area with swings and play station for the kids, sandcastle making area, fishing guides, water sports activities and complimented magnificently with friendly staff. The walking aisles/paths and stairs for the entire resort were very well maintained and grounds were well kept. Our cottage was very comfortable, neat and tidy. The wildlife of birds, squirrels and chipmunks were abundant and the peacefully serene ambiance captured in the memories for me and my young sons…. will be forever cherished.

Most sincerely and respectfully from myself and sons,
