At Ludlow's Island Resort our three children had the best time of their lives. Every day there is a children's/family activity such as sand building contest, sail boat making and racing, fishing derby, scavenger hunts to name a few of our children's favorites. This year our son won the fishing derby and he received a trophy which he has proudly displayed in his room. My son's picture with his trophy was on the front page of the island daily news paper the next morning that gets delivered to every cabin. He has been bragging to everyone that will listen. We also appreciated S'mores on the beach and hot dog roasts. Our children participated in movie night every night. Ludlow's also has a couple of unique playground areas, one is a treehouse with swings and basketball court and the other is an old Chris Craft Cruiser Playhouse. My children also enjoyed a riding in the Ludlow's Amphibious Car that drove into the water and around the Island. Ludlow's Island Resort has a beatiful sandy beach for swimming, an 8 foot iceberg to climb onto and a water slide. Our family also enjoyed the kayaks and water bikes that you can navigate around the island.
This is our third year going to Ludlow's Island Resort and our children want to make it a permanent tradition to visit every summer, this is their highlight of the year. The staff at Ludlow's is wonderful and very accomodating to ensure everybody has a great stay. This year we stayed in the four story Dream Catcher cabin and it has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, we would recommend it.
I just wanted to share part of our experience at Ludlow's Island Resort and recommend to anybody looking for an up north experience at a cabin.
