We brought my husbands family with us in September. We were there 4 days and had such an amazing time! The cabins are spotless and very comfortable. Everything you need is there and the view on the lake is beautiful. If you have a rainy day, there is so much to do! Darts, ping-pong, pool...you name it, they have it.... More

Just 2 nights at the Driftwood Resort and I'm filled with admiration and appreciation. A city-guy, all that I needed - and more - was inside the log cabin and right at my door, if requested. Clean, comfortable, beautifully priced and perfectly situated, this is a "come-back" destination for years to come. I may regret telling others about a place... More

This place offers allot of amenities from boating, game room and playground for the kids. Cabin was very clean and rustic. The view from the patio was so perfect and the swing added a nice touch. We will definitely go back. The owners are very nice and friendly.

The Driftwood Resort is the perfect place to relax, sit back, and make great memories with your family. Easily accessible, the log cabin cottages are so clean, and yet have that vintage feel. The sunsets we witnessed every night were beautiful, after sitting around the campfire for hours nobody wanted to go to bed. Little sleep to be had, because... More

Stayed there for a week in August and loved it! The management is great and really friendly! Cabins are wonderfully rustic yet very clean! Grounds are impeccable and the new aces' perch is a great hangout game area when its raining (or when its not!). You can't get much better sleep then listening to teh waves crash all night after...

We decided to get away for some xc skiing and booked reservations here. The new owners are very nice. These cabins were built in the 1930's. It is the real deal. If you love rustic and clean this is the place. We were a little cold at first, but it was comfy at night. This has been a really cold... More

My sister, 3 children, and I stayed here last February while cross-country skiing. It was very clean, comfortable, and the owners were very helpful. When we needed assistance, someone came immediately. We couldn't ask for more. For what it's worth, for a somewhat dated cabin (we actually liked that), the bathroom was WONDERFUL...that part was not dated (and that was... More
