We stayed in a cabin in for a week this summer. Super cute cabin with everything we needed inside including a coffee maker and large fridge. We had a blast! Also enjoyed the awesome new dock with a swimming dock added to it. The lake is gorgeous, the cabins have great AC, and provide a rest from a busy day... More

We've been heading down to hand cove resort for the last 6 or so years and couldn't be happier! The cabins are super clean and the kitchens are well equipped with everything you would need.
