“Peaceful, friendly, good food, entertaining”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place is very peaceful. I love the woods. They have plenty of places to relax with a book. The pool is wonderful, the lake is so warm and sandy beach is very pleasant.Fun house has old pinball machines and other arcade machines. There are lots of outdoor and indoor games available. Cottages are very nice and clean, beds are super comfortable. The food is amazing and you will likely overeat. But not to worry! Rowboats and paddle boats are right there to help you burn of some calories! Kids never want to leave, and stuff is so friendly.

Thank you for writing, Olga. It was nice meeting your husband and see the whole family together. . It was the most fun for us to hear you and another family communicate in your native tongue. That was an amazing coincidence. See you next year.

My brother's family and us went up there together. We had 5 kids total ranging from age 7 to age 1. Everyone had a great time there. The staff was excellent and accomodating and it was fun to fall into a daily routine or completely change it on the fly. Getting to know the other guests was an unexpected pleasure and we've already kept in touch and shared some photos with them. Highly recommended!!

My family and friends love this resort. We go ever year to spend time in the water (pool and lake) and eat great food. We love Susan and Bob and the rest of the staff. And we always make new friends, some whom we then see year after year!

Oh, Trina, you are so sweet. I love the pictures of you and Jenny in your Oak Cove Aprons. That was so special when the boys surprised you with those for Christmas one year. We really enjoy your week. No unmet expectations. You know what we offer and you like it. It's comfortable. Thanks for writing.

Just arrived home from our second family reunion at Oak Cove. We had a group of 25 people ranging in age from 3 to 86 and everyone had a great time. Susan and Bob are wonderful hosts and their staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a terrific place for a big group--lots of open space, delicious food, activities, and lovely places to sit and talk. This is a warm and welcoming resort, not posh, but very comfortable. Many thanks to Bob and Susan for all their help making this a memorable vacation. Anne & Angel

We go every year. Its great! My parents, my wife and kids, my sisters and their families all go on a big family vacation there every year. My kids are taking what they learn in swim lessons to a whole new level at OC.

Oak Cove is like a home away from home for us. We have gone to the resort eight years and we absolutely love it. We talk about going back throughout the year and all the things we will do once we get there. My kids love all there is to do there...swimming in the pool and the lake, kayaking, boating, kick ball, shuffle board, golf, pool and games in the funhouse, etc. etc. We have gotten to know Bob and Susan well and they are like family. The food is absolutely fantastic and we love how Bob personally serves you. I can't think of a better family resort and would highly highly highly recommend this for any family! We can't wait until next year!!!

Well, thank you for your very kind words, Darrin. We always look forward to your extended family's visit and the funny things you do; especially loved your "mustache" photo op this year. You will have to think of another great movie for next year. I am still laughing at "Caddy Shack". Appreciate your great review.
