Twelve of us longtime girl friends from Wichita, Manhattan and Lawrence came for a weekend to relax, play Bunko, exercise and just have fun together. We stayed in cabin #9 on April 25 and 26 and couldn't have been more pleased. Our cabin had 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a full kitchen with everything that we needed in it. It also had a couple of very large couches which were very comfortable for sleeping and relaxing.
The staff were very pleasant and easy to work with. I look forward to having my entire family rent a cabin in the near future.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with friends

Sylvia, we are so glad that you and your girlfriends had a great time at the resort. We love to have groups such as yours come and enjoy the spacious cabins and have fun just being together. We hope that each of you went home with that special feeling of being renewed and relaxed and with a commitment to staying close as friends in the future and we hope Acorns Resort can be a part of that experience.

My family and I also stayed in cabin #2, one of the small ones. Great interior with a dish washer, clean, grounds very clean also. Built a fire in the provided fire pit and watched the stars. Received permission to fish from the boat dock and even though the fishing was slow, had a great time while little kids played at the beach right next to the dock. Our only complaint, was that the beds were pretty hard and we are used to a softer mattress. Other than that, I don't think anyone would have anything to complain about. On waiting list for a larger cabin later this summer so the kids can swim and rent a canoe. Can't wait to return!

We stayed in the biggest cabin with several other families during spring break. We really enjoyed the space, including a big basement for the kids. They really enjoyed playing on all of the hiking trails, skipping rocks in the lake, and sitting around a bonfire. Watching the bald eagles in the morning was beautiful. It was an easy-get away from our Topeka home. Hope to make it back in summertime!

I loved staying in the cabins and during the winter was nice too. It was very quiet and peaceful. I saw tons of bald eagles on the frozen lake and a great horned owl on my hike, which was amazing. The stars were bright at night and that was a nice bonus, I got to build a small fire and drink a beer under the stars! My only recommendation is to update the TV, it was still picture tube, even though I was not there to watch TV and did not watch much, a newer TV should be in order. The trail was nice, and it was a great weekend getaway! I have recommended to others!

Not only was the view and the resort amazing, but Carrie was able to answer all of our questions and was fantastic when we checked in. Couldn't of asked for a better get away for our family. THX Carrie for making us feel welcomed when we came in, while traveling its nice to have a friendly face around.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Acorns Resort. Mother-Daughter times are so special and we are glad that you made the resort part of it. We hope all our guests, especially those who visit in winter, will take time to sit back and enjoy the beauty of the resorts wildlife, gorgeous sunsets and breathtaking views of Milford Lake. The best way to enjoy the resort is by hiking the trail that meanders through the entire resort. We hope you will come back many times to experience this special time together. We appreciate your review and your business.
