We stayed in cabin #5 at the Dutch Lake Resort for four nights Aug. 20-24. This cabin faced the lake but you could not access it from in front because of all the lily pads in that area of the lake. There were two warfs close by that you could jump off and swim to another floating dock on the lake. You could also rent a canoe or peddle boat for $10 an hour. This cabin was old and crooked, except for the kitchen looked like a newer addition to it. Although it was old it suited our needs just fine and was clean upon arrival. That being said, housekeeping was not part of the price, you clean yourself while you are there You could go to the office and exchange your towels as often as you like and get more toiletries but you must do your own dishes before leaving or they charge you. There are recycling bins outside each cabin to put your bottles in and a garbage can and they collect that daily each morning. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes. It had a separate bedroom with one double bed and one single bed. The separate living room had the kitchen table in it, and a sofa bed and T.V. There is a fire pit and BBQ outside of the cabin, and I think there was one for each cabin. There is not grass outside of the cabins, there was gravel and the type of dirt that sticks to your skin because it is so fine, and that type of dirt was throughout the area of the cabins which was really messy. There is a playground area that did have grass up near where the campground area is, that also had the washroom/showers. There is a laundry area too. Free wireless internet available and it looked like the office had a computer you could use. There is a restaurant called The Painted Turtle on site and you are given a free continental breakfast coupon for each day you stay in the cabins. We didn’t eat at it other than the breakfasts because it was very costly. We were there for a Family Reunion and it was a great area to be, however the cost of the place to not include housekeeping didn’t seem right.
