I paid $270 to stay here fof the night. The room did look like it does on the website however it is extremely small. The TV is out dated and the bathroom is small. In the tiny shower there is a push hand soap dispenser that is labeled "Hair and body wash". I found that to be kinda of tacky... More

We stayed in B112, Lakeview. At first we were disappointed because we thought we were getting a room that opened right up to the beach, but we ended up liking the location because we had a lawn area, which was slightly more private from the public and the kids could play safely in sight. It was still at the beach,... More

Stinky dirty carpets, cobwebs, and old funky cheaply green plastic lawn chairs on the deck! This is a noisy mess! Two weddings in a row and the speeches and the music were blasting into our room until late at night. Not worth it! Staff is young and inexperienced, and along with your payment in advance with Expedia they take deposits... More

We stayed at the Beach Retreat and had a lakeview. We had a great experience and loved this hotel. As others have said, the rooms are small, actually very small, but that did not take away from our experience. We enjoyed the pier and the great views during sunset The hammocks were great to spend some time in. We spent... More

I have stayed at this hotel when it was the Timbercove Lodge. This was the first time I have stayed since it became the Beach Retreat. The staff at the front desk were pleasant and accommodating. I had a lake view room with a balcony and was not disappointed by the view. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed... More

Our family usually stays at a resort closer to the stateline, once we park the car we never get in it to go anywhere, we just walk, but our usual place was booked, so I found this place online and decided we might as well try it!! Great place, we had a fantastic view of the Lake and my family... More

This trip was for my husbands birthday, I booked it it 2 weeks prior and was very specific about where we wanted to stay on the complex: beachside, but not where all the July 4th revelers would not stake out their beachchairs and umbrellas right outside our patio door It was obtrusive and not at all private. Don't book a... More

I have always relied on Trip Advisor in researching new destinations and accommodations and for the first time I feel let down on this one. Giving this place 2 stars is generous. Check in was stressful. Arriving 12 minutes early, they told me my room was not ready and to return at 3pm. I did, they told me my room... More

Place, beach, amenities, are great. Restaurant isn't bad... it's AWFUL... and expensive. Don't even try any buffet. I don't like that "rental refrigerator", and it's a little and not good refrigerator.

My husband and I booked this hotel not knowing what to expect and came away very impressed with this resort! The rooms were spacious, clean, well kept, and had a great fireplace to add a touch of warmth and romance. The lake itself is literally moments away from the rooms depending on which building you're in and the beach is... More
