Summer help must be hard to find because the faces primarily seen are the Scott's. They work hard as they cook , clean , repair , entertain , give boat rides, drive the tour buses , operate the front desk, and do the bookkeeping. My wife had a dream that old man Scott came in the room and tucked her in before going to sleep. I started kidding that we were in the Twilight Zone and old man Scott was behind every face.
The good -
There is a wide variety of activities on the premises that kept all members of the family engaged in doing something. The lake is clean and beautiful. The boat rides were pleasant. Generally each meal had much to offer but there were some duds. Thankfully , we found the Scott family to be quite wonderful .
If you did not sit at a center table you may have a very long delay before even being greeted for your food order. Scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes seemed like boxed mixtures. The water supply at the table was non-existent once you downed your first glass. Not until you were done with the meal did anyone come to give a refill.
The rooms, the cottages, the main building, and the entertainment hall . . . . while all are functional. They look and feel like they have done all they can to keep them up to simply a level of functionality and that's all .
Had not Mom underwritten 50% of the costs for each of the family members, I would have choked at the total charges we incurred. Even so , we really had a wonderful time which is what made this a 5 star event at a 2 star facility.
