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.

This is an interesting resort hidden away yet not far from the city of Port Clinton. The website is lacking with information. I have made calls to the office staff for information but they have not returned my calls. The Sales staff is selling timeshares but there are not many timeshare buildings on the property. It seems that any remodeling... More

I made a mistake of not reading the reviews on Trip Advisor before booking a cabin. Yes the water stunk as others indicated, wanted to through up brushing my teeth. Yes, we also were not given the unit we booked but another lessor unit at the same price. No, Joan was no where to be found when something needed repaired,... More
