My girlfriend and I booked two nights (Fri & Sat) in Mid July and had an excellent getaway! We stayed in cabin 22. One thing to keep in mind is that this cabin was labeled as a lakeshore cabin, however it is set back from the shore approximately 30 yards with a trail that runs from your door down to the water. With summer vegetation this distance tends to lose the lakeshore feel and view from inside your cabin. They do however have several deck-like platforms just feet from the shoreline with 2 loungers on each spread out for relaxing in. This was perfect for a couple who wants a quiet glass of wine while watching the sunset! We rented a fishing boat on Saturday and the staff was very friendly in getting us all set up. We didn't have much luck fishing, but it was still great to be out on the water on such a quiet lake. There are several activities for couples and families, but we wanted to get away as much as we could and didn't partake in any. There are grills to use, however one grill is shared by two cabins. Thankfully our neighbors never grilled or this could have caused some timing issues. They do have a restaurant in the lodge for those who don't want to cook! Overall the cabin was what we expected. No air conditioning, but we never felt uncomfortable at night. Some of the cabin could use some updating, but again, we were just glad to get away from the city life so it didn't matter much to us. Perhaps my rating will reflect more the peaceful nature of our trip and the personal time we were able to share rather than the quality of the lodging.
