I booked the Lakehouse for the night before my wedding and the night of. My wedding was not at the Lakehouse, but at a local venue near by. My husband and I researched it, read reviews and toured it and were blown away with everything it had to offer. However, my stay was sadly not what I expected. We booked...

I stayed in two different rooms becalms the first one had noisy neighbors and the staff honored to help me switch rooms. The lake view was amazing. The bar outside had very friendly staff it was by far the best getaway spot.

Every single team member-- from the front desk to housekeeping was friendly and courteous. My room was gorgeous and beyond spotless! That's important to me because I'm OCD about germs and dirt. I carefully examine every corner of a hotel room, and I can honestly say, I have NEVER stayed in a hotel this clean! I was in the San...

We were there 7 nights, 8 days. The staff was fantastic - immediately addressed a loud group at 2am (completely shut down and I didn't hear a peep afterward) and always accommodating guests' requests. The pools, hot tubs and grounds were well maintained. We were also pleasantly surprised with the food at the attached restaurant, which also had a popular...

alambTX, It was so great having you for such a long stay and I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful time. It is unfortunate that the recent rain storm brought the lake so much debris. It is a long clean up process since it was record amounts of rain in such a small amount of time. I am confident...

We had a lot of rain on our stay here - which isn't too common. The roads were flooded so we were happy to have a restaurant that was very good on the property The room was comfortable but small, with a deck outside overlooking the pool which when it wasn't raining we enjoyed The room was clean and fine

Stayed here with the wedding party and other friends and was very satisfied by the charm and how this property was presented. Checked in late (11 pm) and was prompted to our room (#5201) in no time! Our luggage were dropped off by someone in a golf cart since there was no elevator in the building that we were staying....

Us and moat of our guests stayed here for our wedding in Feb. From the beginning of booking the rooms for our wedding block to the end of our stay, everything was a great experience. The staff was friendly and attentive. They made our honeymoon suite perfect! All of guests commented on how much they enjoyed their stay as well....

“I stayed in room #3012. My room has a door that connected to room 3010. Unfortunately whoever was occupying the room had set there alarm for 5 AM sunday morning. Only problem was they let the alarm chirp for 20 minutes. Then it was quiet for 9 minutes & then the alarm chirped again for another 20 minutes. This continued several times. I finally called to front desk at 5.50AM to see if possibly the room was unoccupied & someone had inadvertently left the alarm clock on. Front desk clerk told me the room was occupied & possibly the guest needed to be up early. Very understandable but I really didn't need awake til 8:30 AM or so. After all my family had rented many rooms as well as the Boat house for my nephews wedding the previous night. I certainly could have used as much sleep as possible do to the late night we had just had. Nonetheless I totally understand the resort can not be held accountable for their guest's lack of common courtesy when it comes to alarm clocks. ”
