Every time I come here, I have an awesome time. I have been staying at the Naswa for a few years now as I attend the Nascar race. My first initial stay was didn't get off on the right foot but, the stay and owner took care of me immediately. Since that date, I have seen continued improvements of the... More

The resort is neat and clean. The staff throughout was very friendly. I was caught off guard that we had to pay in full on check in. I've never had to do that anywhere else I've stayed. Always on checking out. The resort is an older one and while efforts to update it have been made it needs more. Our... More

Thank you for your review and input of your recent stay at the NASWA. It is unfortunate that you did not bring your concerns to our attention while staying with us as we would have gladly fixed any of your maintenance concerns. Not to be argumentative, but all food at the NazBar is freshly prepared with the exception of the... More

The location right on the water was great and the food in the restaurant was quite good. The staff had a real customer service focus. Cottages need to be upgraded but were certainly good enough. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Overall, our stay at the NASWA was wonderful. The staff was fantastic. The cottages were small, but clean and comfortable. We only have one recommendation for the cottages ... some shelving would be so helpful. Such a easy fix to allow more organization in the tight space with very little cabinet space for food. We had a friend bring us... More

Thanks for your critique of our Resort. We welcome constructive criticism and learn from our guest's input.

Glad to hear your stay was wonderful. Hope you will... More

Stayed one night to attend a James Taylor concert at Meadowbrook. We had a very basic room (terrace off parking lot) but well appointed and super clean. Quiet and great ac. The beach area is a great bonus. We had a picnic on the beach before the concert and the friendly people at the desk set us up with a... More

WOW! You certainly were able to squeeze a lot of fun into one night in the Lakes Region!!! Our convenient location to Meadowbrook makes a taxi ride to the venue easy and carefree especially if you intend to have a cocktail at the concert. Our desserts are "Hopemade" by the matriarch of our family, my mom, Hope Makris. It was... More

We'd both been to the NASWA before but in beautiful weather, this time the forecast was iffy, we had one beautiful day and one entire day of rain. Despite the rain, we had a great afternoon! The staff ran out and bought ten or so pop-up tents to provide extra covered seating at the beach bar, so we spent the... More

We wish we could guarantee the weather because it is always nicer for our guests when the sun is shining! This being said, the fun must continue rain or shine. Glad you did not allow the rain to dampen your stay! See you again! Cynthia Makris President NASWA Resort More

Our dog friendly room wasn't elaborate but it was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant was good. Unfortunately, there is no convenient place to walk the dogs. Rocks and grassy hills really made it precarious for us to take our dogs out to "go." We would have also liked to have been permitted to... More

The NASWA is a pet friendly hotel and pets have always been welcomed. Unfortunately, given our location, in the heart of the Lakes Region and Weirs Beach, there is not a lot of wooded areas to walk your dogs. This being said there are a couple of areas behind the resort but as stated in your review it is not... More

I was pleasantly surprised as to the cleanliness of my room...didn't expect that from an older hotel. Not overly impressed with the food choices down on the beach. Boats are loud early in the morning (7am) coming and going from dock....especially the big cigarette boats. No sleeping in! Coffee in the room is kind of weak and flavorless...hotel should try...

The NASWA Resort celebrated its 79th year and while the Resort is known for its "olde" lakeside charm our housekeepers and groundsmen do their very best to keep the place neat and clean.

My first time at Naswa our room was great over looking the lake, million dollar view for fire works and the boats passing by. We enjoyed sitting on the beach, food/drinks outside on the beach were great, waitress Amber was the best attentive did not rush took the time to ask how we were enjoying our stay.
