We stayed in the flag ship building. We really liked it. It could use a little updating but was comfortable and spacious. We had a cozy fire place and a huge tub for 2 in our room! Bring the wine lol. Seemed clean, a nice weekend getaway. Flagship buildings are rite on the water with a sliding glass door and... More

I recently stayed at the resort for four days. The room was immaculate, the food excellent, and the staff more than accommodating. I especially enjoyed Reillys Lounge , which featured a sports bar with numerous televisions. The wait staff handled the crowds with utter efficiency. I will return and would highly recommend this place for others.

Even-though we spoke to several people over the phone prior to booking nobody informed us that the majority if not all activities would not be available. The chalet was full of cobwebs and grubby, whilst there is a microwave and fridge no crockery or cutlery.... The lake view was magnificent, and the bathroom and shower clean and tidy. The lake...

My husband & I stayed here due to no other available places because of the "Wine Tour" going on. We stayed in the Flag Ship hotel room on the third floor. First of all besides the outside of the building being dirty, we had to carry everything up three flights of stairs that were slick & hazardous. Inside, the room... More

My stay at this hotel has been my worst experience as I have traveled all over the world. We were greeted by a young woman at the desk who clearly was not trained well. She did not explain the hotels policy regarding signing a document that commits you to stay the full time of the reservation with no option to... More

There are peddle boats and pontoons to rent. We went our on a peddle boat. It was something fun and different to do. They also have what looks like a giant yellow bicycle to peddle on the lake. Don't stop here. I highly recommend you go into Wayne Fitzgerald state park to walk the trails and see the nature part... More

This was our third stay on Rend Lake for fishing. We have seen a remarkable drop in the upkeep and service at the resort. Walls are covered with dead insect smears and webs, our desk drawer was in disrepair, our friends had a broken coffee maker, soap bars are flimsy and when you unwrap one it is broken in pieces,...

The cabins are extremely outdated, says they sleep 5. Seriously?! The reason I rate this the lowest is because we slept terrible: A VERY hard, full size bed and a lumpy, you can feel the springs through the mattress, pull out. You can hear every thing through the paper thin walls. No utensils at all in cabin. Cobwebs and bugs... More

It was a beautiful location but the rooms could have been better - could have been cleaned better. The rooms had an updated tv and bedding was ok but bugs/spiderwebs in the room and lack of cleanup in the conference part was a detractor. Restaurant had very good food, good service and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back to the... More

We rented a cabin here. There was 11 of us and we split 2 cabins side by side.Theres a door between the two rooms that connects the 2 rooms. The room wasn't too bad. The grounds outside our cabin were littered with garbage and clothes, presumably left by previous guests. The kitchen and bathroom need updated tho. Especially the lighting... More
