Egyptian Hills Resort
Reviewed 3 July 2011

My Mom and Dad met me at the resort as a half way point because they live in Iowa and I live in Ohio. We stayed in one of the cabins for a long weekend, and got to enjoy boating on the lake and the pizza from the store. I have to admit I still dream about that pizza! It was a great vacation spot for my family and I, and we have decided to make it an annual trip because the cabins are so nice and there is so much to do!

Reviewed 30 June 2011

We came to Egyptian Hills Resort for a family reunion. We stayed in 3 cabins (one was the double cabin). They had lofts (which the kids LOVED), flat screen T.V's , powerful A/C and super comfortable beds. Our bed was king size and I wanted to steal the pillow :o We mosly ate outside on the giant deck on the picnic tables and enjoyed the view of the lake. Each morning we started out the day riding the paddle boats. Then we used a pontoon boat and explored the lake. We had 9 children with us. We spent hours and hours jumping off the boat and swimming in fun little coves with tiny private beaches. We ate at the restaurant and had the homeade pizza that was sooo good but, not out done by the ice cream that tastes more like custard. The windows in the restarant are really fun because it is so close to the water it feels like you eating in a cruise ship cause all you can see from inside is the water. At night the children ran around catching fireflies while the adults watched from the deck. Sorry to go on and on but our trip was so wonderful! We live in San Antonio and it was worth the drive. We will be staying at the Egyptian Hills Resort again. Thanks for the amazing memories!

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE, This resort is a waste of money and precious family time. The cabins are very small and cramped. This was a horrible place to take a family for a vacation, very expensive and one member of the staff was a total jerk!!!! The boats for rent a very old and my family had to be towed back to the dock. The owner is a jerk, stay away, dont waste your hard earned money on this joke of a resort. BEWARE

In response to Outdoorman111, we are a family resort and have zero tolerance for those who abuse alcohol, especially around their children. This person has never stayed at our resort and has never been in one of our cabins. They did rent one of our boats which they enjoyed most of the day then brought it back broken, and we still gave them a full cash refund. And when they became belligerent we asked them to leave the property. These people have not spent one dime of their hard earned money at our resort.
