Went down with my sisters and brothers. Had a BALL! Great owners and staff. They were really friendly and helpful. House was pretty much as advertised. The house actually felt bigger than the pictures. They do need to upgrade furniture and TV's maybe add wifi. But I would definitely go back. I think I may plan a summer visit.

Great Family Reunion
Great Family Reunion
We stayed here for a weekend with 4 families and had a total blast. The weather was perfect, we got to see the national water ski team perform and spent the entire day Saturday canoeing, rowing, kayaking and laying out on the relaxation station. There is a bonfire pit, grills, and one night we stayed up late playing golden tee and pool. We are definitely coming back next year.
