We rented a condo at the resort and it did not disappoint. There was plenty of room of the 9 of us and we weren't on top of each other. The kids were able to run around and play without getting in the way of cooking or such. There was toys, games and movies available in the condo which was great. Each family had their own bathroom which was nice. We used the shuttle on the resort multiple times and the driver was very helpful and nice. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. The kids loved seeing the deer running around. It was very accessible to put the boat into the water and to pick up our rental. It was a wonderful trip and cannot wait to return.

Rented a double decker pontoon boat with a slide for the family. It was a newer boat, was given great equipment orientation from their staff, and all staff was friendly and helpful. Received a discount since the resort was having their 35th anniversary, which made it an especially good deal. Can't honestly think of a single negative thing--everything was just right! We will definitely be returning!
