Great vacation spot! Located halfway between Chicago and Detroit, and only about one hour from good-sized cities such as Grand Rapids and South Bend. Lots to do, well-equipped with lots of boats, bicycles, horseshoes, volleyballs, etc. (personally, I like to kayak) free of additional charge! Allowed one 18-hole round of golf per day at a nearby course, there's a lakeside... More

What an excellent destination for our family reunion! This location fit the bill for nearly everything on our checklist. Enjoyed the food, the wait staff, s'mores at the fire pit, the clean and well-decorated cabins, the lake, the kayaks and paddle boats, the pool, putting puzzles together in the fun house, and the pontoon we rented. Bob's uncanny ability at... More

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the scenic view of Lake Cora and the wide range of amenities at the resort. The owners, Susan and Bob, were very welcoming. Bob amazed us... More

This is my favorite vacation that I have been on. Between water sports, swimming, catching frogs, games, the food, and staff I love it all! I have always found myself wanting to come back every year. Water sports are what we do most probably with knee boarding, tubing, and skiing. I love this vacation so much!

This place is great for getting families together. We had ages from 1 to 75. Kids can roam safely, the lake and pool are great for kids of all ages (up to 75).

The dinner bell is always a hit with the kids. Where else can you line up twenty kids who patiently wait their turn to do something they will never forget? Maybe Disney? We're not that, but ask the kiddos what they remember. Catching minnows, using paddle boats, being free to roam here and there. Thank you so much for choosing... More

We are so glad you had a nice time with us. True, we are not the Holiday Inn, but our web site shows and tells everything so there should be so surprises. Of course, we promise a few surprises, but hopefully good ones like peace and quiet. We are glad you found some nice things to do with your family... More
