We really like the Resort and have stayed several years in a row. Our family loves the quiet location and amenities (pools, lake, restaurant etc.) The only down side to this stay would be the condition of the property we stayed in. Nothing bad, it was clean, but seemed to be overdue for some minor maintenance.
