“Wonderful Place for a Family Vacation!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2008

My entire extended family (40 people of all ages) just returned from a week at the Outrigger. We all had a wonderful time. The cabin are a bit rustic, but the nice pool, the friendly owners, the large open grass area, the play ground for the kids, and the location more than made up for it. The cabins were clean. The only thing missing was laundry facilities on the premises (the owners said they were looking in to this). All the cabins are very close and the outdoor space with tables and chairs were great for picnic meals and campfires. This in not a fancy place, but that is part of the charm. We have already booked again for next year!

Reviewed 18 August 2007

Pros: Owners are wonderful, offering their homegrown fruit and veggies, Lake view very nice, outdoor area with firepit, picnic table,multiple chairs,patio table and grill very nice, cabin living room/kithen/bedrooms very roomy, location excellent, pontoon and jet ski rentals on premises
Cons: Cabins need updating and were filled with cobwebs and not cleaned well, bathrooms were awful with mold, rust and foul smelling water. We brushed our teeth in kitchen sink. It was hot when we were there and old and noisey a/c-thermostat did not work, beware of how many can sleep in each cabin-advertised "hide-a-beds" deceiving&uncomfortable-units have cheap futons which can only sleep one adult or 2 kids, outdoor fencing by dropoff to lake not to code-used unattractive wire fencing,would not let young children nearby.
We do not expect much with cabins but would not return to that bathroom and shower.
