What Our Guests

Are Saying

A Wonderful Stay

“My wife and I needed a quiet getaway and this short stay was available so we booked it. We have been guests here many times several years ago and were thrilled to be in a position to finally return. The beautiful, friendly, and quiet resort cabin was excellent and did not disappoint. We will be back soon!”

So Relaxing!

“We visited during the shoulder season and were surprised at how many services were available. We stayed in a four-bedroom, three-bath unit. It was amazing. So spacious, so comfortable and such a beautiful setting. We WILL be back! We highly recommend this place.”

Fantastic

“We have stayed at the RV campground at Fontana Dam many times, but this year, we stayed at the Lodge for a semi-annual dance event. It was clean & comfortable. The service was great too!”
