We stayed at this resort with our daughter and her husband and our little 3 year old grand daughter August 2012. It was the perfect choice for us. Our grand daughter played for hours upon hours in the huge safe yard on all the children's ride toys, swing set, and play house. There was a big deck with comfortable furniture so we could relax and look over the lake and yard at the same time. The cottages were very cozy. And the proprietors very friendly and helpful. Our only regret was we could only stay one night. We definitely will stay there again.
