Relaxed and spacious
We had a great time at Northern Bay. The temperatures were cold, but the condo was very comfortable and the clubhouse menu was great. All the staff was friendly and the relaxed atmosphere allowed us to recharge our batteries over the extended weekend. This place was a great find.
Beautiful property with lots of space. We rented a pontoon on the resort and had a ton of fun. The resort hot tub was closed though so that sucked. Was kind of hard to find the condo though.
Nice. Worked well for our family of 6.
My boyfriend and our four kids stayed here for a short three day trip. The condo was nice and clean. The only issue we had was getting into the condo with the garage keypad. The code we were given did not work. We don’t know if it was the batteries or something else. We luckily were able to get into the main doors of the condo when another family was going in and the living room door keypad worked. The owners were pretty hard to get a hold of. I called and texted several times. When she did respond she simply said “Weird. That’s the same code the last renters used.” And I never heard anything else. We just left the back door unlocked after that. Not the most convenient thing when you’re in an unfamiliar place but we didn’t have any valuables so we just made do. I realize it was not her fault but she could have checked to make sure we were able to get in and out. Other then that, everything was great and we had a great time. We kayaked at Point Bluff, rented a pontoon at castle rock water sports and hit some good fishing spots. It was a great trip! Not sure we would stay here again as the resort was in need of some updates and they advertised boat, bike and jet ski rentals and had none of that.
Enjoyed our stay
Kids enjoyed swimming the most. Weather was good except for Sunday. Lots of rain. Played card games with kids. Learned how to play “garbage”. Enjoyed our stay. Condo was really nice & clean. Thanks
Another enjoyable trip and stay at northern bay. Second time in the condo unit and was great!
Clean and plenty of room for our group of ten(4 adults / 6 teens). Hope the unit will be available on all future annual vacations at the resort!
Thank you for returning to our lakefront condo! Glad you enjoyed another visit and look forward to hosting you for future vacations.
2nd time visitors!
This is our 2nd time on this property. We love the location. You can get to the lake off the back patio (go down one flight of stairs). You can walk out of the front of the condo unit to the swimming pool, sand volleyball, play ground, basketball hoop and tennis court. It's a long walk to the tiki hut, but doable. What we were disappointed in this time as the master bath tub has a HUGE rust stain from the faucet and the towel bar was broke. The refrigerator wouldn't get cold the first night but we Google it. We unplugged it for 5 minutes and it left the temp settings alone and it worked thereafter.
It's hard to find 4 separate bedrooms and we need that to accommodate our family. The beds are fine, but the 4th bedroom is a full-sized futon. The living room furniture are all futons so you could get others in this space if needed. The linens are fine - but the fitted sheet kept coming off during the night.
The "negatives" listed were minor. We will still rent this unit again! Castle Rock Lake is beautiful! We rented a pontoon from the golf shop and picked it up at the tiki bar. We loved going out to "Alcatraz" island where you have less than 4 feet of water to walk around in and climb the hill to the top of the island. We stopped at Dirty Turtle again this trip. It was during the week so it wasn't lively or as much fun as our first time there which was on the weekend.
If you're looking to get away and don't expect a 'perfect' condo, this is your spot. I'd recommend bring extra toilet paper and napkins/paper towels as we ran out (we checked in on a Sat and out on Wed at 10AM. There were 6 adults and 3 kids age 5 and under). There are 8 8" plates to use so we used the dishwasher twice a day at least. If you don't want that hassle, bring paper plates and disposable cups.
So happy to hear that you were repeat renters. We love it when guests return and enjoy the location of the condo, right on the lake but steps away from the pool, tennis courts, volleyball court, basketball court and playground.
We appreciate your feedback and look forward to another return visit. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
