delayed ththus review to give Joan ample time to follow through with the refund promised but like the other reviews it never happened. We arrived at the fate to a rude and less than friendly guard who was frustrated that we had 8 in our camper , a camper that sleeps 10. When I explained that when I made my... More

Worst trip my family has ever been on, and we have been on many together! This place is like a prison. Customer service is non-existent. The owners and staff treat you like an inmate. Very rude people at the front desk. We were harassed and forced to leave after one night. Website states pets welcome, staff stated otherwise. Amenities on... More

This is the worst hotel/resort in North America! We are about to start a class action lawsuit against them for withholding money and security deposits from multiple guests. Joan Gerallsky is apparently a manager but is impossible to get a hold of and she is the only person "authorized" to discuss anything with anyone. Their phone system is awful, the... More

We checked into a 3 bedroom cottage for a 7 day stay with family. When checking in and out we had absolutely no problems. We drove up to the cottage and I have to say after reading some of the reviews on here I really had no idea what to expect. I took cleaning supplies and blankets just in case!... More

Stay away from this hill-billy haven! We just went for the 4th of July weekend. Checking in on Thursday and out on Sunday. We arrived about 6pm, held up at the guard shack because we brought our dog. I had reserved a cottage that was "pet friendly" but we were not put there. Our teenagers had to stay at the... More

Three of us came here for a girls weekend. We arrived around 10pm and was checked in by the security guard. He advised that the hotel was a mile straight ahead, and no one was at the front desk. At the time we didn't think anything of that statement since it was so late. Little did we know that this... More

When we got there they did not have our reservation for a cottage but since we booked online through a third party we are not sure whose fault that was. They put us in a beautiful suite so we had 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The place was quiet, relaxing, and we had a wonderful time. We pretty much... More

Cost was high, location was okay but the service was none. We arrived at 9pm and all staff was gone. We found out this was their normal. The security guard a mile a way was our contact who got us a room key but no services available.

We stayed in a quad for over a month. Water was bad, unit was loud and we had to shovel our own walks. We still have not received our deposit (it has been more than three months). The staff that handles deposits never tells the truth and they have even hung up on us. Do not trust these people.
