Testimonials

Most wonderful. Great food. Excellent staff. All together great family fun.

It is my five-year-old's idea of heaven. Kiddie splash park, outside toys to play with while Mom and Dad eat, outdoor summer concerts, the amazing outdoor floating bounce house in the summer, SUP rentals, and paved bike trails.

The place was absolutely beautiful. Very accommodating and welcoming. Staff were kind and helpful. Rooms were just right.

Spent couple days here last month for family reunion. Played 9 holes golf (first time ever golfing) had a great time - facility was great - lots to do here. lawn games, beach area, golf, indoor games & waterpark.
