Room was fine although very small with small bathroom, but I was just one person so it was fine. I was staying in one of their hotel type rooms in the main lodge, they do offer larger options at higher price points. Having a good bar/restaurant downstairs was awesome since this place is rather remote without many nearby options.

Hi Cheryl, thank you for staying with us. The Lodge Rooms are more of a bed & breakfast style room and are based off of the old Kare Phree Pines lodge and layout. We hope to see you back soon, and check out the history of the resort, it is really a pretty cool feature.

Staff is very helpful and friendly. We had a small room with 2 twin beds. I was small with its own small bathroom and a closet. It was very clean. The common areas were very clean. They had just cut back services at the end of September--end of the summer season so there was no coffee, breakfast or lunch at the restaurant. The grounds are beautiful. Lovely beach, dock, deck. Great location on Big Sandy, folks were bringing in lots of fish. The restaurant/bar opened about 4 I think. Great food, friendly staff. Nice outdoor space. The place was hoppin' both nights we went. I would definitely go again, earlier in the season and a bigger roo.

Three couples stayed in villa 36 over a family wedding weekend. Website pictures don't do it justice. Furniture and furnishings were very nice and very comfortable. Also, a good value compared with the cost to stay in a motel. A fantastic place to stay! Just wish we'd had time to enjoy the amenities of the resort.

We just went for a friend's wedding and stayed in villa 18.Pictures on their website do not do this place justice.It was way nicer than I thought it would be.The place looked brand new.My only suggestion would be to cover the little decorative window in the master because it's hard to sleep past sunrise.The entire property was great.I can't wait to come back with the family.
