We rented a cabin at Maumee Bay State Park for a weekend (usually the cabins are only available for whole weeks) and had a wonderful time. The view of Lake Erie was marvelous and the grounds were very well-kept. The nature center had lots of activities for kids and the board walk was perfectly relaxing!
The cabins are very efficient, with a full kitchen, two porches, air conditioning, a fireplace, satellite TV, and beds to sleep seven. I did not notice alarm clocks. The extra bedrooms are lofted, so just be warned that if people stay up late, the guests sleeping in the lofted bedroom will hear you like you are in the room with them. The park provides ample towels, kitchen cookware/utensils/flatware, dish soap, and shampoo/conditioner/body wash. They even have recycling bins for your convenience. My only complaint is that there is only a shower - no tub. BUT, you're supposed to be "camping" at a state park, so having a cabin is kind of cheating anyway ;o)
The amenities of the park are fantastic. Cabin guests have access to the lodge amenities. There is an indoor and outdoor pool. The indoor pool has lots of water features for the kids to have fun and two hot tubs for adults. The lodge also has a huge playroom for younger kids, an arcade and raquette ball courts for older kids and adults. The hotel restaurant serves first-class food. Each of our lunches were fantastic (my in-laws travel a lot and are used to "finer things" and they were so surprised by the quality of the food (particularly the seafood bisque). Their indoor/outdoor ice cream stand is very reasonably priced and serves very yummy, hand-dipped ice cream.
My only complaint is that, in the summer, there is a lot going on. There were 3-4 events going on on the weekend we were there. However, while there were lots of other people around, you still were able to have your own space. The only time I noticed it was that the ice cream line was perpetually long.
There is a golf course, rental bikes, a beach, and nightly bonfires in which we did not participate due to time constraints, but they all looked really fund.
