First I'll start off by saying we had a nice time as a family. Secondly I'm just going to be honest about a few things. Nobody is in the office 99% of the time. There's really no "check in" our key and map to the place was in a box. Owners just come and go as they please. Not as private as we would have liked and also thought it was a bigger place from the looks of the pictures but it wasn't. You might be by the lake but there is no access to it from the resort unless you rent a boat. We stayed in the ponderosa cabin yes we all survived and made do but I have to be honest. There was absolutely no room in the kitchen to prepare meals. No cabinets, no drawers, no paper towels and not even a supply of coffee!!! I can't believe they would make their guests drive to the store for coffee when we're paying $140 a night! All the dishes were on a shelf and all silverware was just sitting on the top of the fridge in a silverware dish that wasn't even clean. Bathroom was very awkward. It was downstairs away from the bedrooms. So you had to step down creaky stairs to get to it. Very small and no bar soap was supplied either. All in all we had a good time as we didn't spend it all at the resort. But can't say we'd come back maybe if we rented the bigger cabin? Liked the play area in front for the kids. And the fire pits.

Wow, I was totally impressed. Much nicer than I expected. Everything was supplied, all we needed to bring was our food. Chuck and crew were great. Fishing was excellent 2pound bass off the dock. Definitely going again.

We thought it was a great place to relax and have some family time a few hours from home. We really enjoyed our stay, the owner and manager were very nice and very helpful. We like fishing so did a lot of that from the dock and from the boat a few times. Also explored the local area, did some hiking. It’s not the fanciest place- we weren’t looking for that though. Everything worked, and we had what we needed, as well as a kitchen and grill for cooking. The kids enjoyed the loft a lot too.

When I opened the door to my (SPRUCE 1) place, I was okay with what I saw for the price I payed. I believe most of us stay at these places for a nights sleep more than a place to hang out like home. Chuck should offer me a few dollar refund after reading the rest of my comment but I will find out what kind of person he really is if he don't. There is no way in heck he or any of his family members would sleep on the so called bed I had. It was like sleeping in a bowl. My head and feet were a foot higher than my mid body. It was absolutely horrible. Chuck, people throw out mattress that are in better shape than what I slept on. I am seriously thinking about asking my credit card company to stop pmt and to haggle the price for four nights of no sleep because of a trash of a mattress. I hope people read this review before paying up front.

Let me start by saying the pictures they are showing on the listing are a little deceiving...the cabin we stayed in was very run down and it didn't smell very good inside. Went to store to by some candles and air freshers! It's a shame there is a a chain link fence that blocks the view of the lake! Bedroom was ok but felt a little spooky because of the weird mirror that was on the wall. We did think the gentleman that ran it was very nice and helpful!!! Would not go back for return visit !!
