My family has now had 4 generations visiting fin & feather since at least the 1980's. I recently took my 2 year old for her first visit. It's been at least 10 years since I've been there & I swear the place has not changed at all, except for the closing of the verandah grill & opening of soda steve's. I think that is good & bad. I love the family environment, the location, the family amenities. But I swear the mattresses, bedspreads, carpets, tvs, & appliances are all the same from the 80's.
We stayed in a room with 4 beds, 1bath, & a kitchen. We noticed walking around barefoot in the carpet turned the bottoms of our feet black. Some of the blinds were broken, & the pictures on the walls were cheap motel pics (wish they were pics of the place from years past or even the beautiful lake down the road!). They did provide towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, a hairdryer (we couldn't get ours to work but had brought one), dish soap, basic dishes & utensils, and one ice tray. School had just started when we were there & they were DEAD, so the gameroom was closed durung the weekday. we never got a chance to try the dinner buffet (I remember these fondly- great food & so popular). But we did have the breakfast buffet on sunday. It was good. But I wish we could have done their dinner or even brunch. We will be back, but I hope they update a few things in the coming years. And not sure if I would recommend this place to a friend- they would definitely have to have low expectations of the rooms or we may no longer be friends afterward! But the overall facilities are so relaxing, self-contained, safe, & family - oriented that it will always be in consideration for a trip to the lake.
Pros: buffets are delish! Lots to do on property. Soda steve's is yummy! Very safe environment. Gameroom was fave for my 2 year old & they checkout games/ fish poles/ etc. Wonderful big gift shop. Great memories.
Cons: rooms feel old, small & old beds, old appliances, small tvs, dirty carpets, gameroom would disappoint older kids, tennis court looking rough, roofs may be going on some cabins too
