Spent a couple of days, rooms are small; no king beds available. Nice little beach, clean and neat; however need renovation. More than a little dated. Nice water side bar and eatery great setting but they need to invest in updates.

The clerk wasn't overly friendly... More

My wife and I stayed at The Margate in the first week of August and had another wonderful week's vacation. We have been coming to The Margate for about 10 years and have never been dissatisfied. The Resort keeps making improvements each year, with the most obvious this year being the new roof over the Beach Bar. The food at... More

I just stayed here with my family for a wedding. Our room was located in the Inn Building across the street from the actual "resort". The hotel room was not the quality one would expect when you pay over $300 a night. There was mold everywhere from the lamp shades to the bathroom tub. We were not able to take... More

This place is very dated. Good location on the lake. A few public slips for docking a boat, which is what we needed. The outdoor bar is good, food is overpriced and average. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good. Served it's purpose for the night
