We stayed here as a large group with kids aged 2-8 years. We had a fireplace room near the main lodge, which was convenient to many of the activities.

However, figuring out the activities took some work as it wasn't always clear what was happening when and no one seemed eager to discuss options with us. Front desk staff were polite, but curt.

The reservation process was more difficult. We called to make reservations a month in advance and never received a confirmation number. When we called to confirm things ourselves the week of our trip, our reservation had been "lost". Luckily, they were still able to accommodate us, but getting a reservation was stressful. Make sure you get a confirmation number!

There are a few eating options on site, but almost have the same menu. We went to town most evenings for some variety.

Our main fundraiser for our scholarship fund is a fishing tournament. From the first phone conversation to the last detail of our event, working with the staff at Cragun's was outstanding. Every employee we came in contact with were courteous, cheerful and eager to help. We were treated with respect and never heard the words no or can't. We have found a home with Cragun's and look forward to next year.

Back for our two night three day girls weekend. It didn't rain for two days straight this year so we had a much better outdoor experience! We arrived sun night and were able to get signed up for two pontoon rides. They were perfect! Just a nice 25 min loop around the lake that was amazing. Our second driver, Mark, let each of the three kids take a turn driving. My 6 yr old thought she died and went to heaven! Driving a boat???!!!! No way! Sun night reception and dinner was even better than last year. Seemed like the food was better. Dutch Cragun, the founder, was even walking around talking to guests, we loved that there were so many more activities offered over our three day stay, some free, like the boat rides, and some for a nominal fee. My daughter did camp Craguns for kids for three hours Mon morning which allowed my mom and I to go get a massage at the spa. We had lunch at the restraint by the pool. I had a delicious and huge salmon Caesar salad that was put of this world! It was the special of the day and had a huge perfectly cooked piece of salmon on top. Perfect to enjoy out on the deck on a sunny day! We had the same exact room as last year which fit our needs perfectly. Only complaint was that there were people above us this time and we could hear every creak and groan of the floors above us each time they moved. Oh well, could happen anywhere. Could say more, but just know we loved it and plan to go back for a third yr in a row next summer!

Room Tip: Rooms in the hotel wings can be far away from the lobby/food/pool. Request a room close to the main lodge if you need to be close to it. They've always honored our requests as soon as I've emailed the,.

Quality of golf on Legacy Courses was outstanding. Service both on the course and the resort was great, no matter where our group went the staff were expecting us, made things easy, and made us feel extremely welcome.

Room Tip: Plenty of options to choose from, review the site for great detail. Reservationists can help you choose the room that best suits your needs

Every year I organize a group of 16 guys to go play golf at different venues throughout the years. We started coming to Craguns resort 3 years ago. Even though mother nature was not the kindest to us for one of the days, we still had an amazing time. The service at the resort is absolutely incredible, and everyone from the wait staff, to the cart girls and pro shop employees. We truly feel like they "roll out the red carpet". The golf courses were impeccable and out accommodations were perfect for our needs.

We look forward to coming back, year after year.
