I was there for a business meeting. Marina was closed for rentals on 80+ degree days, so why go to a lake? Power supply for meeting rooms did not exist. Only the food in the most expensive restaurant, WindRose, was good. WindRose decor has a distinct Steak and Ale feel. I did enjoy watching the myriad of ways that they... More

This a great place if you have kids. A ton of stuff to do on site. Arcade was fun bowling was cool and the pools are amazing. My one big problem is its not handicap friendly at all. You may have to park aways from your room. Overall it is a solid place to stay.

Very overrated. Needs updating and remodeling desperately. Staff is very nice considering they aren't treated the greatest by employer (this is factual, as I know many people who have worked there). Waterpark is nice. Restaurants decent. I wouldn't go back though.

For Christmas, I love to take the grandkids to Tan-Tar-A. There is so much to do even in December. Better than just handing them money in an envelope and they love it too. They have a large indoor waterpark, restaurants, swimming pool, spa, bowling alley etc.

Our visit included visiting family in the area and vacation time for us. The golfing at Oaks was superb. The course was in excellent shape, except for a little mushy from recent rains, not busy on a Wednesday afternoon. Great views from room and on the course. Nice bar for the evening nightcap. Breakfast in at the Bear Lodge had... More

We have been coming here for 3 or 4 years now and it's just so much fun! We do an extended 4th of July getaway with several couples and children of every age. It's kind of like a spring break for moms & dads because the kids run all over the resort while the adults hang by the pool. My... More

Not worth $104/night. Very nice hotel, I will admit, but that for an off-season rate is ridiculous. No breakfast included, and resort fees you have to pay separate. My friend and I left and she ended up being charged another unknown $50. Room was nice, lake view through the trees. Otherwise, my friend and I will stay somewhere else next... More

Very nice resort, this was the second time I've stayed here in 2 months. The staff was overly accommodating, the bar was open late and Ace does a great job of taking care of you, calling you by name, and making you feel welcome. The rooms have been remodeled and are still just average rooms. The beds and the pillows... More

We spent two nights at the resort having a high school class reunion. The lobby and and entrance has been totally updated and is very attractive with lots of seating.
