My family has stayed at Dixon Lake resort multiple times over the last 3 or 4 summers. Great location and great customer service (owner remembers our kids names each trip!) and an amazing experience each time. We really enjoy the July 4th celebrations that we have attended.

The room was super clean, I had the best experience there! Grills and bonfire pit out back, along with our own dock and boats! Janet was a delight and I loved their dog, Remy! I cannot wait to go back! They are privately owned, so it was nice not having a specific check-out time

This message is for trip advisor representives only. I do not think it is fair that this person can write a review on my property because they never stayed here and they were never told they can bring multipul large dogs to a kitchenette motel room for two people only. Simply said this not a ture story and I do not have a fle problem here I really do not want that published. I would appreciate if you would not allow this review because it is untrue on three accounts. Thank You

Thank You for taking the time to write such a nice review on Dixon Lake Resort Motel. Reading your response makes me feel my hard work cleaning is worth it. I try to keep the lake front experience a wholesome as possible with campfire, dock with a bench seat right on the lake, fishing boat, canoe, picnic tables and grills that face the lake and a shuffleboard set. And yes, there is TV's with cable too. Thanks again. Janet
