Most everything about the place is 100 years old including the pool tables and the bowling alley. Amazing any of it even exists anymore. You can tell... More

Scott's is a nice place for a large family gathering and offers lots of activities in a gorgeous location for all ages. Our group of over 70 family members had a really fun time together and the Scott family was very gracious and helpful. The resort has definitely seen better days and it would be a great thing if it... More

The rooms had mildew and water damage. The bathroom door didn't close all the way. Instead of fixing the door, someone had placed a large rock in the bathroom for guests to use in order to keep the door shut. It's obvious that the owners have a hard time keeping up with the area. A few of the buildings have... More
