We came for a fishing getaway. The fishing wasn't great in July, but we enjoyed our stay. There were many families with kids enjoying the beach, playgrounds, etc. Our cabin was clean and comfortable. We had one issue, but the resort owners took action right away to fix it.

The cabin was not very clean. With Covid 19 going around I would have expected to see the cabin very clean and this was not. Dust was thick on ceiling fans, carpet had not been vacuumed. There was dirt on the wood frame around the mattress. Also there was a pair of dirty underwear under one of the bunk beds. The lake area was beautiful , the dock was no viewable from cabin. The parking was not great, very limited.

Response from Kerry Davis, Owner at White Iron Beach Resort

Dear Michelle, Thanks you for your review and we are sorry you had some issues. I know you did tell Sandy about some of your problems at check out. It is unfortunate that you did not let us know as soon as you discovered the problems as we would have immediately rectified any situations you discovered. We have a large number of cabins to take care of and unfortunately a thing or two are missed periodically. Be assured that all surfaces in the cabin were disinfected prior to your check in. Again we would have addressed your concerns if we had known. Please try us again. Sincerely, Kerry and Sandy Davis

The room and accommodations were average. The beds were terribly uncomfortable. Grill supplies were dirty as was the grill. Water pressure and bathroom was above average. Management did help with requests in an adequate amount of time.

Great resort. Great people. Perfect for a family vacation. The fishing is fantastic. The play area and beach make it really fun for the kids to play. Kerry and Sandy are fantastic hosts and would recommend WIBR to anyone 10/10.
