Enjoying a quiet Sunday afternoon with a cooling breeze and perfect view. The sand is perfect for castles and the water is a perfect temprature. If only I had more time to stay and enjoy this perfect of places.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. 40 years ago we bought White Oak. We still love looking at the lake and get so excited when the loons swim by. The lake as pretty much stayed the same with very little building and much of the same families. More

There were no more rooms left, so the owner rented us a suite. It was great, clean, fully equipped kitchen... More

Thank you Jason. It has been so great watching your Mom grow up and now the 3 of you. We always miss you when you leave. Since this is our 40th year, I suspect that we were here for your Mom's first year. We loved her Grandparents and Mom. Have fun for the rest of the summer. Carol More

Carol and her family were wonderful! Her communication during the booking process was wonderful. Her attention to detail and keeping our group together was awesome. The cabins are rustic, and serve the purpose nicely. The briquette grills outside the cabins are very convenient. Although our refrigerator quit on us, the problem was resolved within 30 minutes! That was amazing!! The... More

We stayed in one of the larger motel rooms and were pleasantly surprised by the very comfortable beds. The rest of the room had the basic amenities - tv, a/c, heater, coffeemaker, but it was everything we needed. We loved being able to open the windows for a nice breeze. The water pressure was excellent and the water stayed hot... More

We spent a warm Columbus Day weekend here. Although the motel was not full there was no hot water in the shower at 9 a.m. There also is no heat in the bathroom. This means that if you like to keep a light on in the bath room your choice is to (a) keep the door closed so that the... More
