“Wonderful Anniversary Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

My husband and I have been to a few different resorts for the last 4 years on our Anniversary and this one was one of the nicest. We rented the 2 bedroom condo unit room 1123 with some friends of ours and the pictures do not lie. The room was exactly how we expected it. The cost of the room was great for the size and luxury of this condo. There are some spots in the ceiling here and there that need new painting due to water damage but overall it was very clean and nice.

There were just a few negatives but they were manageable. Be aware the couch is very low because it was a sofa sleeper and there is no mattress underneath. Also you will want to bring a foam mattress topper with you because the mattress was a little hard. I thought of this ahead of time because of past experiences with other resorts. The only other negative that I saw was that the condo did not have very good parking. Although we were able to park right near the condo most nights there were not many spaces so when it got full we had to park over at another building next to us the last night there. It was just overall a tight squeeze but other cabins may be better, I am not sure.

For some having to provide your own towels may be a hassle but be assured this resort had everything else you could need so bringing some towels was no big deal. One of the neat things was the close proximity to the water. You look down from the deck and there it is you could literally fish right off your deck. That was neat and such a beautiful view which made it very relaxing.

We had BBQ thanks to their close BBQ pits and relaxed out on the deck by candle light. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub which was in walking distance from our condo, which was also very nice. It was just a perfect 3 day vacation and we plan to go back. Thank you Lakeview for a wonderful trip. The Scotts

My family and I had a wonderful time at Lakeview Resort. My siblings and I brought our father down for his 60th birthday. My dad enjoyed the fishing from the docks and from his boat he brought down. Because our family is so big we stayed at 2 3bedroom units that were right next to eachother. This was perfect! With 3 little ones under 2 we were close enough to see the lake but not so close to worry with the little ones. The older kids enjoyed fishing off the dock and all the kids enjoyed the indoor pool and park. We visited in september and everything was beautiful! The staff are amazing too! They were so friendly and helpful. I think we have found a new tradition coming back here. Sincerely very pleased!!

Room Tip: 3 bedroom uinits are perfect for a slightly larger family. We weren't on top of each other the e...

Laura,

Thank you so much for your review. I'm thrilled to hear you and your family had a wonderful stay. As a three-generation family business, the best part of my job is sharing my family's tradition with other families over the years. I hope you make us your new tradition, and I look forward to your next visit.

Warm regards,

We are veterans of the Lake; although never had to stay at a resort before. We chose Lakeview resort because it is close by the area we wanted to be. It was friendly at check in all the way to check out. Even the squirrels ate breakfast with us on our deck! Clean, relaxing, quiet and an enjoyable stay. Planning a return next summer, hopefully it for more than 2 days.

I only rated cleanlyness very good because of the airfreshners was an overload. It would be great if there were more comfy chairs to sit in. The 2 kitchen chairs were not. I understand size of room plays a role, but I think a smaller table with 2 club chairs could work. Decorating is adorable though, and we're coming back!

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and the surroundings. We just had a discussion in regards to moving the fireplace in Sparrows Nest cottage to allow for the addition of an occasional (comfy) chair. It will be implemented within the next few months. We will adjust the air fresher setting on the unit, also, as it is a very small cottage. We look forward to serving you again in the future. Sincerely, Jake Drake.

We enjoyed our family reunion at the Lakeview Resort. We enjoyed the privacy of our cabin, the beautiful view from our back deck, and the "homey" feel of the resort. Plenty of activities for the kids to enjoy, and the lake "view" was excellent from all over the resort! The kids particularly enjoyed the fishing from our dock...as soon as they'd put their hook/worm in, a number of fish would start nibbling and up they would pull a fish. Alot of fun for them!

We are so glad that your family reunion went well. We anticipate making some new improvements on the fishing dock, so tell the kids to pack up those fishing rods and come on back! Thanks again for choosing Lakeview for your reunion. Best regards - Jake Drake

My Son and his Family came to town from IN and he wanted to show his Wife and Children where he went as a child so we went to Lakeview Resort. What a wonderful vacation for all ages. My 83 year old Mother, my Brother, my 3 grown Children, Daughter-in-law and 3 of my 4 Grandchildren all stayed in the same cabin # 302 we didn't have lake view but we wanted to be away from the lake because of the small children they range from 1 to 4. We couldn't have asked for more. Lots to do for the kids the playgrounds are kept up very well, the pool was great the grown kids loved the sand volleyball the rocky beach during the week is so much fun but it is a little rough during the weekend because of the big boats on the lake no fault of the resort that is what lake life is all about. Very reasonable priced and a great time for all. I hope to return next summer if not sooner.

Room Tip: All cabins are nice it just depends what your needs are you can go rustic like we did or stay in a c...

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear of families getting together encompassing so many generations. We're glad that cottage 302 met your needs. We hope that you are able to keep those family reunions on-going with grandma, even if you can't make it to Lakeview Resort. God bless - Jake Drake

We stayed recently @ Lakeview Resort. Any direction you look you see the beautiful lake. It was so peaceful there. We stayed in a studio unit. It was plenty of room for us and it was clean and loved that it had a full kitchen so we didn't have to eat out.
My son LOVED feeding the ducks on the pebble beach which was right outside our unit.

We will be back to visit again soon:)

We found our stay to be very fun. We were there with our children and grandchildren. Lots to do at the resort. We all enjoyed the pools, tennis and shuffleboard. Also, the swim docks were as the grandkids said "awsome"! Our condo was roomy and clean. It was so nice to be so close to where we rented our boat. I also want to thank your office people who were very helpful and pleasant. We plan to come back again soon!
