Stayed for 2 nights for a family event. Received nice room and free one day golf passes under birdie package. Reasonable for a weeknight, but Friday expensive, but I expect comparable with lake resorts in the area. Very nice golf course. Excellent food in the restaurant. Setting is very nice and we always see a nice wedding there. Waterpark still... More

After winning a gift certificate we booked a room at the Thumper Pond Resort for the three of us girls for a mother daughter weekend. We planned an hour and a half drive to get to the resort but it took a little longer than we anticipated because of the location. The roads to the resort were a bit confusing... More

Smelled musty. Room was cold. Very clean room. The front desk staff were rude. The coffee in the event center was cold. It is a nice conference center but could use a little training with staff to make the environment more comfortable for everyone.

I usually come here four days a year for a professional conference. The hotel is located in a beautiful area. The rooms are spacious and comparable to a nice mid priced hotel. There is what to me a non golfer looks like a beautiful golf course here. However if you don't golf there is not much to do. They are... More

Only one major problem, NO BREAKFAST!!!! We found out that night after being checked in and not from front desk that on the first of the first... More

Was her for a business meeting. This place is in the boonies but they carved out a very nice resort. Rooms very comfortable, people very friendly and overall a very relaxed atmosphere. There are no places "in town" to go eat (pop ~400) but that isn't an issue since the bar/restaurant on site is just fine. Service was a bit... More

My husband and I stayed at Thumper Pond when he was in Minnesota for business. A lot of amenities were closed because of damage they'd had from a storm. It looked like they were working hard to get everything up and going again though. I just wished their website had said those things wouldn't be available. The staff at the... More

This golfing event was planned months in advance, well before the unfortunate water park collapsed. With that said, the hotel would not offer any discount or refund despite our intention to make full use of this aspect for the kids. The hotels stance was it was a "complimentary pass" and it was never included in the price. Sure... Room was... More

Stayed for a weekend for a wedding, clean rooms, comfortable beds- liked the suites as the space was so great. The wedding reception was at the resort, was disappointed in the that the salads were served, then took 45 minutes for the main course to be served and my fish was lukewarm, grooms dad had to find a server to...

My wife and I selected this "resort" to be the venue of our wedding. It was more like a full service hotel with a golf course than a "resort." One of the leading factors in our decision to select this location was the water park. We have 2 young boys and we knew there would be lots of other children... More
