“Another Great Stay at Three Oaks Resort”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed in the one bedroom cabin number 2 to be exact and I have to say it was amazing for my husband and I. We had a beautiful view of the lake and really enjoyed ourselves. Don and his wife go above and beyond to make your stay fun and comfortable! We will be going back again this weekend and as I said before will be using them everytime we go to the lake. GREAT SERVICE all the way around A+

Room Tip: Cabin 2 for the view and cabin 7 if you have a big group

This is a great place! NEW OWNERS so give them a try! Don was super nice and made our stay very comfortable! The cabins are very cute and well taken care of. There is a lot for your children to do when you are not on the lake. The pool is very clean and well maintained as well as the mini golf and game room. We travel to Gamaliel all the time and have friends who have a cabin there so we are not new to the area. I will say that this place has A+ service! They have a great dock for swimming and late night fishing. We will be returning soon and cont to use this resort.

The website is very misleading! This is not a family friendly "resort"! The old man that runs the place is very, very cranky. He does not like children and he will reprimand your kids for nothing. He does not want them in the pool, or playing golf, or basically doing anything. I agree with the other reviewer that he is also very hot headed! The pool is ok, the miniature golf is area is tiny. Everything at this resort is old, old, old. The cabins aren't clean. Also, the play area is not good. It is really just a swing set and a couple of those old plastic doll houses. They put shredded wood under the swing set which cut my kids feet. The lake was great, but we really regretted our choice of resort! I think some of the reviews that are on here, have to be fake because there is no way people liked this place that much!

As the newest owner (May 2012) I don't know for sure what prompted this review, but I can assure you that we are neither hot headed or cranky, old maybe, in some eyes. The resort has been here since the 1950's and as such the original cottages are old, no doubt about it. They are however updated and clean and command the best views of Lake Norfork available. Our resort is very family friendly, just no pets please, and we try to have something available for all age groups and interests. Our Mini Golf is designed for our guests use, it does not have to be a large commercial operation to be a family fun spot. Three Oaks is above all else a "Lake" resort. If you are looking for the best playground, go to a park. If you need fountains and neon lights at your mini-golf, there is one of those in town. Come enjoy the beauty of the surroundings, the great water sports of Lake Norfork, and become one of the multitude of families that return year after year!

My husband and I, along with our two small children, stayed at Three Oaks Resort the first week of August. We had a very relaxing time and were very pleased with the owners and property! Everything was clean, and the cabin had everything that we needed...even dish soap and SOS pads for washing dishes! When we first checked in, we asked to change cabins to a larger unit, and the owners gladly made the switch for us so we would be more comfortable!

My only disappointment was with myself in that I did not make our reservation early enought and was not able to get a cabin with a screened porch that overlooked the lake. Our cabin had a pation, and we could see the lake, just with a smaller view. My children loved the pool, playground, and the rec center. It was wonderful to use the trolley to get down to the lake with two children. Three Oaks is just 5-10 minutes from town, and it is an easy drive back to town, if you need to pick up something. When you visit Three Oaks, you want to feel away from town so you can relax on the lake. We will definitely return and stay at Three Oaks! Thank you to the owners for providing a relaxing vacation for my family!

We stayed at the cabins over July 4th weekend. The cabins were nice but since it was so hot outside, the A/C unit did have a hard time cooling all the room during the day. But it was fine at night. The porch had screens so it kept the bugs out. The owners were very accomodating and gave us anything we needed. The view off the lake was breathtaking and we sat every evening and enjoyed the sun set. The pool was clean and lots of fun. Overall a fun place to stay. They do have a boat dock if you want to rent a boat or bring your own. We did not use it though.

Accommodations where average, price average, female owner pleasant, unfortunately male owner a hothead, abusive, threatening, used fowl language and was extremely rude while also in the presence of children. He also stated "I am like GOD to you" scary! Their rule not allowing non guest to use property means you can't have a visitor for the day!

We are the new owners of the resort since May of 2012, so please disregard any comments related to the ownership. I am not saying that this is the party, but there have been issues in the past where one friend of a large group stayed in a cabin while the remainder of the group chose to camp in RV's or tents at one of the neighboring campgrounds and then come here to use the pool and access the lake at our dock. As such, we do maintain a "no guests without approval" policy. It is there for the protection and fairness to our paying/overnight guests so that they do not have to compete with others for the use of our facilities such as the dock, the pool, the mini golf, the rec room, etc. If you want to have friends that live in the area come to dinner or lunch at your cabin, no problem, just let us know.

We stayed as this resort for a short vacation (three days and two nights) and were very happy with everything. The cabins were comfortable, clean, and had many conveniences. Our nine-year-old daughter gets a little OCD about the cleanliness of places we stay at, but we heard no complaints from her during the entire stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Wish we had more time to stay with them. - Kevin Groenhagen
