First of all, if your curiously interested in seeing for yourselves, a true believing, seeing as it is, National Lampoons quality of a dump, at least use a prepaid debit card - ONLY! to make the reseervation (for five minutes, if that) and tell them you will pay cash when you get there................ Now, here are three very short and simple, but, OUTSTANDING experiences I will never forget in memory. Although I have more dirt, I will rightfully share with you, just three, as a former victim of this "different" level of vacation and hospitality that they call, Lake Henshaw Resort.
1. Yes, they do have a NO REFUND POLICY if you decide to cancel inside of 72 hours to your reservation date. I point this out because of the flatout lies over the phone, (The quality, peaceful and natural beauty, the daily maid service and so on, you get it), by
what turned out to be the general store cashier.
2. These people don't give billybob about the wildlife, ecosystem and the preservation.within or around wwthat lake or any body of water they claim to proudly maintain and upkeep including that swimming pule. Oh geeze, lord have mercy, IT IS FOR REAL, you will catch something, if not a cold, had they dare you to wet your toes. All I could do is laugh my DUM bASS back to feelin better and right then, $300 starting to occupy my thoughts, all I wnted to do is call my mom, yes, my mother! This is something she will help me move on and to just worry about what's more important.........
3. Finally, the cabin me, my wife and kids was posted in was nasty, dusty with old moldy ceilings, worn out appliances on top of a plyboard patchwork of a kitchen countertop. The lone heating furnace is right by the front entry door, odd place, I think. The outside cosmetic of the cabins had fooled me. The inside was neglected to a point that made me think, once your in, your in, they got my money. We left after the 2nd of 4 days planned, my son literally cried himself to sleep on day two and that just, was too far too long for him, and I felt kinda selfishly wrong with anger that I put them through this hell, when it was supposed to be fun.
True life experience.
