In mid June 2013, forty-four members of the Mandeville clan descended on Oak Cove Lodge for a four-day reunion. Bob and Susan greeted us and before long were calling each of us by our first name. The stay at Oak Cove was very enjoyable. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The meals were exceptional. Breakfast and dinner were served each... More

I have been coming to Oak Cove since my early childhood. Now I'm vacationing there with my family. There's so much to do (swim, fish,outdoor games, paddle boats, kayaks, fun house that has all the old things I used to play as a kid) that my kids never get bored. Delicious breakfast and dinner served everyday with an amazing salad... More

Just returned from my 32nd year at Oak Cove Resort. What a special place. So special, I asked my wife to marry me there. Great place for a family reunion...close to 40 of us go every year.

We had a great (and too short) stay at Oak Cove this past weekend!
