This was a perfect place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The children were so busy playing and having fun, that they didn't miss their electronic devices. The activities on the lake, row boats, paddle board, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats, biking, swimming pool, tether ball, volleyball, shuffleboard, corn hole, ladder ball, and for indoor things to do, there was the...

Thank you for that fabulous review. It was fun to have you here and especially because you shared your 50th anniversary celebration with us. We had three within a week and a 50th Birthday. That must have been a very good year! We enjoyed meeting you in the planning stages as well as the execution of the family gathering from... More

Unfortunately, we only spent one night! This is a charming, comfortable and beautiful vacation destination! I Susan and Bob gave us an unexpected upgrade upon our arrival ( I had mentioned it was my friends 50th bday present, so I suspect they took that to heart!). I have nothing negative to say about Oak Cove Resort. I wish I had... More

Our family group got together at Oak Cove Resort for the 21st consecutive year. I look forward to this all year and had the best time. Bob and Susan are always warm, friendly and try to meet our every need. The temperature of the lake was perfect and the kids in our group had the best time in the pool... More

Thank you for once again taking the time to write about your experience. It makes me laugh to read that you love Grandma Ivy's Fruit Cocktail Pudding Cake enough to write about it. We have a pretty universal approval of that dessert once someone gets past the name of it and tries it ! It is an ancient recipe and... More

Bob and Susan were extremely hospitable, provided us with everything we needed, and the food was delicious! This was the second time I have stayed here and I want to make it there one more time later this summer. 5 star = facilities, food, staff, and overall experience!

That was a fun time. We especially loved that you were such Black Hawk fans and the way you arranged your evening for the event. We hope you DO come back this summer. We have a couple of slots open in August and the long weekend of Labor Day. Hope to see you then. More

Me and 14 friends stayed at the resort this weekend and are grateful for Bob and Susan's hospitality. It was our second reunion at the resort and Bob and Susan make us feel like family. They have created such a fun, family-friendly place and I'd recommend it to anyone. I'm looking forward to taking my family next time. Thanks Bob... More

Honestly one of the nicest, family friendliest places I've ever been. The staff if incredibly friendly and no matter what you do you would never assume you were making someone someone go out of their way. Everyone was happy and friendly and willing to deal with any issue we ever had. Stay here if traveling through the area and love... More

Family of four from Ireland looking for an out of the way american resort in late July 2014. This was it. No great frills or fuss and accomodation is best described as comfortable. Very homely atmosphere created by our hosts Bob & Susan who were very helpful to us throughout our short stay. Food was great - varied and filling.... More

We just loved getting that call from you from Ireland that you had found us "trolling on line" -(a phrase which we grew to love) and had chosen to come to the USA and found us. That was a great treat in itself. We all enjoyed visiting with you and thank you for writing about your visit. That is the... More

I can only repeat what most others have said about Oak Cove Resort. My family of 8 had a wonderful time. The thing I enjoyed most was...."no cooking". We stayed in Courtyard/Vineyard. We could have used another bathroom. But other than that it was very comfortable and extremely clean. One of the things that impressed me is that the pictures... More

Oak Cove was a wonderful place to stay. There was tons to do on the property and off. We found lots to do. Our favorite part was the food, wow! It was super delicious! My husband is still talking about the cinnamon rolls 3 months later. This is a fantastic place for families!
