My husband and I stayed for almost 2 weeks and we loved the cottage, it is a beautiful lake and great people!
Our stay at the resort was very enjoyable. The cottage is very nice with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. The lake is beautiful and the views spectacular. Blake and Jim are very friendly and extremely accomodating and work very hard to insure the comfort of the guests. I would recommend this property to family and friends.
Brought a group of 18. Everyone had a great time. The accomodations were very nice and the staff was friendly and great to be around.
Our family vacation was among the best vacations ever. Our entire family stayed for 3 weeks this summer, and we certainly shall be back!! Everyone had lots of fun here. The activities range from swimming to fishing (including bow fishing), boating, jet skiing, shopping, museum visits, eating out at lots of different restaurants and visiting plantations. Every age group has something to do. This is such a fantastic place for families, including your dogs! And the package comes complete with ducks and ducklings that you could feed and the dogs that family who run this place. If you chose the company of the family's dogs they can provide that too for you, they have three lovely, sweet dogs that will come around only if you invite them. So, if you chose not to have their company they understand, but they are very willing to provide you their company if you so chose. We loved having their company every day. They were funny and it completed the whole package and made it perfect. Oh yeah, and there is a playground and sand to play with right there by the beach in front of the cottage, so even the really little ones will have loads of fun. And let us not forget the goats on the island across from the cottage, you can swim across and take a canoe or kayak across to the island and visit these goats. There are loads of kayaks and canoes that you can use at your leisure, so for the adventurous ones out there - go have a blast. Our daughter made lots of friends there, and the kids would go out on the canoes or kayaks and have fun all by themselves. We would just sit back on the front porch and enjoy a glass of wine and watch the kids have a great time. The family who run the place is awesome, they are family orientated, knowledgeable and they will provide any and all information that will make your stay memorable and unforgettable. The family will also put you in touch with the right people to make your stay perfect. Yes, we would certainly advise every family to go and stay , no doubt.
I will start by saying the cottage photo is a little (very) deceiving. It fails to mention that the cottage is connected to numerous other units all sharing a common porch. Don't expect to have coffee or drinks on the porch with any privacy. The unit was as described but needed addtional cleaning and it had an odor of sewerage. We went out and purchased bleach for the drains along with disinfectant spray and wipes. On the third day they admitted to a ventilation issue in our unit and moved us to an adjoining unit, which was very nice. We again had to re-clean it. They then rented our first unit out to a couple, unknown repairs, unsure how they dealt with it. The boat photos presented in their advertisement are also very deceiving and are not indicative of the boat you will get. Prior to booking our reservation I spoke with Blake and confirmed, reconfirmed, and reconfirmed again the boat reservation. I was told the boat in the picture was the boat I was getting and at the set price agreed upon. I even had it in writting, too bad. They showed us a boat that was repulsive, and the sparing began. I was then advised the boat in the picture was an additional amount of money. When I agreed, the story changed to "Its not our boat, I will see if the owner would be willing to rent it out." After an eternity of bs and my wife being brought to tears we had no choice but to take the deplorable boat. Once out on the lake in the boat we discovered our rental boat motor leaked oil and gas extensively and it did not have a gas cap. While beached at the sandbar we were asked to leave because of the oil slick the boat was causing. We were unable to swim anywhere in the vicinity of the boat. When brought to the management's attention they stated the motor housing was saturated with oil from repair work and that it would eventually stop. It never did. On our last day they did supply a gas cap. We witnessed no less than five of their other rental boats come in or be towed in for repair. Another renter advised us they pulled the same deal on their boat rental, and we witnessed a family arguing over their boat rental. They eventually left, no boat. Management's demeanor was friendly especially when collecting monies, but wenned once we had complaints. Over all I would rate it as a bad experience, and a ruined vacation. I would not recommend it to others. I am sure they will have their own spin, just be warned. P.S. The yellow lab needs his nails trimmed so he can walk.
We have stayed with Lakeside Marina several times over the last year or so and every time weve been there the only bad thing is that we cant seem to make it last. Both Jim and Blake are always a pleasure to be around. They go out of their way to make sure that we have every thing that we need. Thank you for everything.
