The Rend Lake resort is a really pretty location, right on the water with a marina and wonderful forest-like tree setting. The bad news is the resort has been in need of major renovations for some time now. This was my third stay here for a working conference and the resort is in desperate need of major renovations. The rooms (never stayed at a cabin) look like they were last overhauled in the 1980s. Old worn carpet, dated nicked-up mismatched furniture, and old fixtures in the bathroom. I walked down to the marina and there is a sign saying the gasoline pump is broken, and, the pontoon boats for rent had torn-up seats and mold growing everywhere. This has the potential for be a great vacation site, but it has a long way to go in its current condition. Sad.
