My sister planned this whole trip for our family of 20 so I didn’t know much about it. Way beyond what I thought it could be. Awesome accommodations – we had a huge cabin that slept 16 of us. Great food when we ate there. Corn hole games, outdoor pool, trails to hike, hot tub…… awesome. The people were so personable – awesome customer service.Read more →

Due to us booking late and limited availability, we stayed in a lakeside cabin for 12 people on Friday, then had to check out and into the Lodge on Saturday. This turned out great because we would never have booked a cabin for 12 people when it was only 4 of us! Now we KNOW that we LOVE the cabin and we will be back next year with more friends and rent the cabin!Read more →
