We just finished our second stay at Driftwood Resort and just as last year, we had a wonderful time! This resort is immaculately clean, well taken care of, packed with activities for the whole family, and is located close to shopping and dining. The cottages are beautiful and clean. You can tell the owners really care about their guests. Swimming... More

We rented a cabin for the weekend and could not have been happier. The cabins are very clean and comfortable and very well equipped. The owner couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I would recommend to anyone.

We brought my husbands family with us in September. We were there 4 days and had such an amazing time! The cabins are spotless and very comfortable. Everything you need is there and the view on the lake is beautiful. If you have a rainy day, there is so much to do! Darts, ping-pong, pool...you name it, they have it.... More

Just 2 nights at the Driftwood Resort and I'm filled with admiration and appreciation. A city-guy, all that I needed - and more - was inside the log cabin and right at my door, if requested. Clean, comfortable, beautifully priced and perfectly situated, this is a "come-back" destination for years to come. I may regret telling others about a place... More

This place offers allot of amenities from boating, game room and playground for the kids. Cabin was very clean and rustic. The view from the patio was so perfect and the swing added a nice touch. We will definitely go back. The owners are very nice and friendly.

The Driftwood Resort is the perfect place to relax, sit back, and make great memories with your family. Easily accessible, the log cabin cottages are so clean, and yet have that vintage feel.
