Very friendly and efficient staff. The cabin was pretty bare boned and dated. The shower head only produced a trickle of water. Everything was clean.

Cabin was clean and staff were very attentive. Included breakfast and dinner were very good and we made use of the small fridge in the cabin for our own snacks and drinks. Cozy peaceful setting. Swimming was great on Gull lake. We made use of the canoes. Hoping to return next year.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Old lodge so it’s a bit rustic, but clean rooms. Has good food included with the room rate. Nice staff. The beaches were nice too. The only thing is that there’s a bit of confusion regarding the kayaks/canoes/paddle boards and lack of clear signage of what belongs to the resort and what belongs to private owners.
