Covewood is not a place for people expecting a typical resort experience. So if you are looking for the Hilton, Club Med, or Sandels, you best not reserve time. However, if you are looking for a peaceful, rustic (they are called CABINS after all) family experience, where you don't have to blow dry your hair, put on your make up and all that then Covewood is the place for you. It is a place where people sit and chat or read books and talk to each other on any of the floating docks over looking Big Moose Lake, no caring if you are a manager at a fast food restaurant or the CEO of a furtune 500 company. Where the kids can spend time relaxing with you or away from you while taking part in one of the many activities offered in the childrens program. Where the people who are renting other cabins become your friends, that you look forward to seeing, your "summer family". Then Covewood is your place. I have seen some negative reviews, and some of those things may be true, but the charm of the place is the simple and rustic nature of it all. The owners have recent years have done much to update the property and amenities, without changing the charm that the place has held since it was built so many years ago. My family has been going to Covewood for the better part of the last 30 years, my children have forgone trips to Disney so that they could experience the simple beauty that is the ADK, and that is Covewood. It is NOT for everyone, granted, but if you are looking for a little rustic simplicity, and beautiful NATURAL surrondings, the staff will open up the place to you as if you are a guest in their home.....and actually, that is what you are. If you want to be treated like a customer, at a big swanky hotel, this is not the place for you, but if you want to walk around bare foot, eat Ben and Jerry;s straight from the pint or just enjoy great company, beautiful surroundings, and slow down, reconnect with your family and recharge your 'batteries' then this is the place.
