We were lucky enough to stay in the Robin Room. This was supposed to be a 2 bedroom with a living room and kitchen and able to sleep 6. There was one bedroom and a kitchen and a bathroom. The carpets had stains that looked like feces and the air conditioner was so moldy I was surprised it even worked.... More

There was stool all over the toilet, stains on the toilet paper, toilet paper smeared in the shower, holes in the walls of the cabin, door didn't shut, overall disgusting! Would not recommend!! The canoes are all patched up, and missing cross bars.

They said 2 bedrooms, it was 1 bedroom. The mattresses were covered in pea stains without sheets. The room smelled of chemical and urine. The robin room should be called robbing you room. I am very upset. Puppies without leashes, keys didn't work. Spiderwebs everywhere. It wasn't just filthy it should be condemned. I don't understand why a health inspector... More

Not cleaning meaning (mattresses stacked 10 high in one bedroom, broken mini blinds on nasty couches, dead bugs all over kitchen counter, light cover laying on mattress,hot tub nice and green and...

Dirty, no A/c (when told about it they said WE could leave WITHOUT our $1700), food was old and cold. The float was great the bus driver was great! Service and staff was rude and not accommodating for the amount of money spent for our fun weekend away.

The picture looked great and they offered a breakfast and dinner. The cabin was so dirty. Spider webs everywhere. The refrigerator did not work well so our stuff was not cold. The air condition did not work. The light in the main room went out Sat. night when nobody was there. Outside the cabin it had never been swept of... More

We rented the "Brown Cottage" for a 2 night stay. The pictures they had emailed looked very nice, and the picture they sent of the river view taken from the deck was just beautiful, and was what sold us on it being a great place for a weekend getaway. As it turned out, that awesome river view was not so... More

Went to spend the weekend with a large group that uses the site annually. I am not a camper so we booked a cabin (B1) for the weekend.The porch was covered with leftover food crumbs and grease. The cabin did have a flushing toilet and working window air conditioner but the carpet was filthy, stained and damp and the baseboard... More

Let me be clear, this is not a resort and spa. Not a honeymoon location, and not a place for a nice romantic weekend - it is camping - roughing it. We went on a family float trip with some staying in cabins and some camping. This is an old resort, built in the 1920's. The Roost appears to be... More

First, let me point out that I don't expect a 5-star room when I rent a cabin, but I do expect the bare essentials to at least be met. My wife and I stayed in The Roost for our anniversary, and judging by the pictures on their website, it looked incredible. However, upon arriving to our cabin it was anything... More
