Cabins are clean, well kept, and sport wonderful views of Garden Lake. The owners are close by and were always helpful to make... More

We have stayed at Gardent Lake resort for the past fifteen years with our family. We enjoy the location, small quiet atmosphere, clean cabins, and the personal touch of the owners. Owners are very accomodating to every need. They are constantly updating the cabins. Resort is located on a four lake chain with an excellent variety of fishing .
