I know reviews are hard to read and you just never know what to believe, but read this one, its the facts, and just the facts!!
Just stayed last week 8/6/-8/10 with my wife and son. We booked late in the season, and took a chance on staying here not knowing anything but what the reviews online tell you about the past, and current ownership. I will say this, this place is a joy to stay at. This is your typical lake "resort" that you would find up on the lake, not in the Caribbean.
The good: location, the beach, the pool, the close proximity to downtown, the on site rental of rowboats, paddleboats, the bar and grill on site for a quick bite and drink, the staff, the grills to cook if you wish, lots of furniture to use on the beach and pool and of course the awesome views.
The decent: the rooms need a little tlc (but lets be honest, its to put your head down for the night, so I am not really concerned overall) the beds were fine to sleep on, new TV's and plenty of storage for your items, the walls are thin as you will see in other reviews, but hey, most places are like this although it can be annoying and disruptive.
The bathroom was our biggest issue. The shower worked fine, had great pressure and water supply, but they no longer have sliding glass doors, no prob, but at least remove the old tracks from the old doors from the wall and tub, stepping over them with a 3 year old is a little rough, and it looks bad and frankly is a bit dangerous. The toilet seat was cracked, should of been replaced prior to check in. The AC worked fine, just needed to be cleaned, nice to have a fridge, but they are small so keep that in mind, but suits your needs for a few days stay. I would suggest they add a little help to the grill, one person to take orders, cook, make change and deliver food led to a long backup and people standing around waiting for a hotdog.
The bad: Wifi was spotty and tough to hold the signal (such a new generation problem, I know)
Final feelings---if you are going to LG for a getaway, you need to stay here. This is a work in progress and in my mind will only continue to get better. We have already decided to go back in a month or so for the fall season, and will certainly look to come back, and continue to year after year.
Thanks for a great getaway Scotty's!!
