Arrived early and was able to get a room with a patio facing the lake which was great since the weather was in the 70's. And also made it easy to walk down to the docks to go fishing. Now if you are more interested in organized activities like nature hikes, bird watching, outdoor cooking lessons to mention a few...

Pros: This is an amazing piece of property! This hotel sits right on Lake Rathbun and has tremendous views. We were there this weekend (2/18) and counted over 20 eagles, hundreds of seagulls and 2 pelicans. There are a lot of walking trails with wonderful views of the water and wildlife. The hotel restaurant has a nice outdoor seating area...

Stayed in 4 bedroom cottage and it was beautiful. Plenty of room for grandkids to play. View was beautiful. Seen eagle fly by very close to cottage was cool. Close enough to resort if it was summer we could have walked to waterpark. Waterpark could have used more seating.

I spent two nights there recently. It was a perfect get-away. Quiet. Beautiful lodge, and beautiful hikes with early winter vistas. The meals were usual American fare, hard as always to get good fresh veggies. The pirate pool was fun but not good if you wanted to swim laps (this is an older person writing, of course, but I did...

We try to go to Honey Creek once a year with our kids. It gives us a chance to hang out and catch up with them and with each other. The cabins are modern and fully stocked. All you take is yourself and food if you want to cook for yourself. A standard two bedroom cabin sleeps 6 easily. A...

Fall at Honey Creek is spectacular- especially this year with the warmer temperatures!! I am still bummed at the menu change at the grille so that is why there is not a 5 star... please bring the pizza back or add some vegan/vegetarian options....

My husband and 3 boys and I stayed the night here. We were here this summer and loved it and thought we would stay here when we had to come to the area for business.

We stayed 3 nights at Honey Creek Resort and thought it was great. The lodge is beautiful, the rooms nice, the food good and the view gorgeous, especially in the fall. I'd esp. recommend spending the extra $ on a lake-front room, esp. ground level which includes a mini-patio w/ a table and chairs. The lounge has 3 TVs and...

Honey Creek Resort Lodge is very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the lake, wonderful view. The cabins, unfortunately, have no view of the lake. If staying in cabins...it's almost feels like you are living in suburbia. (pretty much the same and living in a cul de sac) It would be great to have more hiking...
