“A Hidden Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

What a great time! My friend and I and our four kids, 8-12 years, rented a chalet for the week. It had a master bedroom on the main floor, and two loft bedrooms, slept six of us. Fully stocked kitchen, dishes, cups, pans, ect., one bathroom, huge wrap around deck and charcoal grill. We had a lake view. Micah, the owner was fantastic. Very laid back place, very relaxing and adventurous all at the same time. The resort is beautiful. Lots of swimming, boating, wave runners, fishing, ice cream and just plain fun. Lake Egypt is fabulous. A short distance from Garden of the Gods, Cave in the Rock State Park and a must do, Shawnee Bluff Canopy tours zip lining. We can't wait to go back!

we went down before official opening May 10th - May 17th, the owners are very friendly and accommodating, the cabins are really comfortable and modern, I almost felt like we were in a adult tree house even though cabin is on the ground, it had 1 bed room but an upstairs loft with two separate areas that would sleep two people on each side. kids would love it, you really can't stand as an adult but to sleep would be fine, My wife and had a great time fishing hiking and went out on a boat once, very relaxing, it was off season so not many people , but we like it that way, Micah is one of the owners and very nice guy, we felt like we were old friends, really great guy as well as other people we met, they are doing allot of work there and they will soon have facility's ready for weddings and receptions right on the property, if you love the outdoors but want to stay in a comfortable friendly place with great people and attractions I highly recommend Egyptian Hills Resort, tell Micah I said Hi

Room Tip: we were not right on the water but we had a great view of a beautiful man made water fall(small that...

This property is in an excellent location on the north side of the Lake of Egypt. It offers easy access to both ends of the lake and shore line is great for just sitting and relaxing or throwing in a line and hoping for some bass action.

The group of eight I stayed with found the double chalet to be perfect in terms of size and amenities. The kitchen included all the basics and the appliance all were functional. The sleeping arrangement was great, especially the spacious loft in one of the buildings. We thought there would be no way to comfortably fit eight people in the buildings, however that was not the case at all! The only complaint I have would be the small size of the bathroom and shower in the larger building, however teh other building had a large/tall shower that worked great.

Overall, the resort provided a relaxing atmosphere and the manager was great at making sure we had everything we needed. The entertainment at the marina in the evenings was also a plus!

Our family stayed at the resort for a long weekend. We stayed in the double chalet which was perfect for our family of 5 and could have easily accomodated a few more. The kitchen was fully equipped and the cabin also had a gas AND charcoal grill with a large deck. Everything was very clean and comfortable and had a nice view of the lake. The owner helped set up activities for us (i.e. rock climbing) and he was very accomodating all around. We would definitely stay there again. The was surprised at how populated the area was, but overall a great experience!

Stayed at the resort with lifelong best friends. We jetskied, boated, bbqed, laughed, joked, etc. The pizza and icecream are the best I've had in a long time. Could have more tv channels, but i guess we weren't really there to watch tv. Will come back again.

Stayed in the cabins. Couldn't get enough of the ice cream and pizzas. The jet ski rentals and staff were great! Micah the owner went out of his way several times to make sure we were taken care of.
Thanks!

The chalets are very clean, and only 6 years old. We rented a speed boat and jet ski from the resort and my kids loved the experience. A band plays at the restaurant on the weekends while we enjoyed the lake view as the sun set. We went horseback riding at a location they suggested, and had an excellent ride. Most of all, we appreciated the how well we were treated by Micah, Jude and their team. They truly go out of their way to make you feel welcomed, and continue to engage you through your stay. We are not big into fishing, but people I know say it is a great lake for fishing. If you chose Egyptian hills, you will be very happy with your choice.
