One word entered our vocabulary during our stay here... 'Janky'.
This place could be amazing. The location is very nice, overlooking a beautiful lake. The problem is, there's junk laying all over the place. When you go in the 'game room', junk. When you go in the laundry room, junk. There just seems to be stuff laying around everywhere. The outside of the cabins need a serious coat of paint and some repair. The pool was not circulating water, swimming in it would be asking for a nice case of meningitis.
The cabins on the inside are exactly what they should be, simple. All cookware is provided and a grill and fire pit. We really had no problems with the cabin itself, other than the beds being worn and of low quality, there is no way we could have spent another night there.
I really wish for this place to be great, it needs an infusion of money and elbow grease to bring it up to par with the nightly rate currently being charged.
