As other reviews mention, this is an older resort and no, it's not fancy with a bunch of amenities. Still I was impressed with the cleanliness and size of the rooms. We had a beautiful view of Lake Hamilton right in our backyard. This is a great place for families! I've been here in the summer and in the winter...

Okay - this place is old and dated. The walls in unit 6b were FILTHY. The master tub had duct tape on the outside, the curtains had water stains, the bedside lamp flickered on and off, and there was mold around sinks and tubs. The amenities were plentiful - the view was AMAZING. Tennis courts are unplayable but we were...

This place is dated. Let me go ahead and get that out there, but it doesn't take away from the resort. If anything it adds to the experience because you feel like you are back in time!! A simpler time! The views were beautiful!! The pool and hot tub were very nice too! We enjoyed the free amenities - putt...

Emerald Isle is right on inlet of Lake Hamilton. We had a two bedroom unit on the top floor of building 5. It provided a great view of the lake. The unit was spacious with a galley style kitchen. A seperate dining area with a big table and 6 chairs. The living room was large enough for 2 over stuffed...

Just off highway and yet very quiet. Small resort (40 units) but compact grounds well-utilized and attractive. Units are amazingly spacious! They are older and could use some repairs and updating, but the cleanliness, friendliness, and convenience compensates for shortcomings. Well-managed.

Emerald Isle looks like it has been cobbled together from a bunch of good ideas that have not all aged well. Thankfully we were there after Labor Day so there was not much noise. Our ground floor unit did not have much of a view. (They did clean the scummy canal the day we left.) The kitchen was very dated...

This is an older property and the pool and hot tub both need a major renovation. The condos themselves are nice enough and functional but could stand to be updated. All things said it is clean and good for a family with children. The location is handy to several good restaurants.

Emerald Isle was a nice place to stay. There were many activities that the resort offered, such as paddle boats, kayaking canoeing, and swimming. Put put, volleyball, tennis and basketball were part of our resort activities. All equipment was provided. It is a quiet place with all the comforts of home.

Had a two bedroom unit 3rd floor overlooking the lake, beautiful view. There are no elevators; however there are many units with handicap ramps, probably need to tell unit if you cannot do steps. They leave the office daily at 5pm so if you need anything better let them know before then. Many amenities at beach to use kayaks, canoes,...
