We took my husband here for a Father's Day weekend getaway. We had a great time. Horseshoes, tetherball and lots of fishing. We rented a paddleboat and toured Rainbow Lake. Our cabin was clean and had new appliances. It was like camping (but not sleeping on an airbed)! We had a small gas heater which we didn't need, a kitchenette, 2 bedrooms and one bath. It was equipped with everything we needed. It was a short walk down to the lake via the resort trail, kind of like just walking out the door! We could fish off of 2 docks, the shore, or rent paddleboats, metal boats or water trikes. The manager was really nice and interacted with all of us; even gave us some fishing tips! The kids had a blast and it was a great Father's Day. Will definitely visit again.
