The pool and lazy river are AWESOME! The kids and adults loved the slide! The house is AMAZING, No doubt, but it does NOT really sleep 45. The dungeon room is not even wide enough to fit a twin bed by itself (even though it claims 2 twin beds) it really has 2 sleeping bags on the floor and nothing else. The Jumanji Theater is very cool but its 6 recliners cannot, in reality, be considered 6 sleeping locations, 3 of the chairs do not recline all the way back. The entire family enjoyed the Karaoke room. This is a great house but in all fairness I think it should be advertised as a little differently. Renters ask lots of questions.
What an amazing time! We stayed for a single night with 5 other families. That's right... 5 other families! At last count, we had 13 adults and 22 kids... and the house didn't feel crowded. We absolutely loved the pool and the slide. We also loved taking the kids out on the beautiful lake with the canoes and kayaks. It was an amazing home and we loved our time!
My family and I stayed at the Great Escape Lakeside Retreat and it was a week filled with love, laughter and happiness. Andrew, Belinda and Ginger went above and beyond to assure that we had a memorable experience. They truly were on call for anything. The home had enough space for our family of 40 and had plenty to offer for all of us from ages 5 – 90! Everything is right there for you. The games were amazing and the pool a delight! I would highly recommend The Great Escape Lakeside Retreat for any family gathering. ***** Five Stars *****
I don't even know where to start! From initial correspondence to arrival everything was seamless. The pool is even larger in person than it looks in pictures. The kids nor us adults were ever bored, we never even left the house other than to run to the grocery store. Our group ranged in age from 85 yo to the youngest was 2. Our teenagers claimed the theater as their bedroom and never slept in their beds. I think the best part was just relaxing outside in the evenings, it's so quiet and peaceful. Thank you Andrew and staff for sharing this amazing place with our family!
This was the most amazing vacation for my family and I with over 20 people. We had our family reunion here and there was never a dull moment. The home was clean, creative and accommodating. We also received stellar customer service from the owner and his staff. There was not one question I had that they could not answer. There was so much to do for both kids and adults.
The Escape Room was a big hit. Although we did not find all the clues, it was truly a great family activity.
My family's goal is to now visit all 3 vacation locations by this owner. He is definitely one who knows how to make it all inclusive. We never had to leave the property for anything.
We will be back to visit the other locations next year.
My daughter's 50th Birthday, at The Great Escape, was the best place for a "memorable event." My grandchildren... ages 8-14... were busy all the time/never bored! Even though the weather was 40 to 50's, children and adults enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub. The game rooms were full of fun and guests participated in Karaoke, Family Feud, Air Hockey, Billiards, Clue, Theater, etc. The lay-out is well-thought out and everyone had plenty of space. The catering service was excellent, food terrific. Large Kitchen area was filled with pots, pans, glasses, dishes, flatware, large refrig,, large pantry. I've never seen or experienced such a perfect place for ANY event. It is a Happy Place where my family and friends had a truly incredible experience. :)
Fun way to spend a weekend! The house was clean and so much to do for my kids! We flew
From Texas and would definitely go back. There was never a dull moment and the owner went out of his way to make sure the accommodations were perfect.
