I can't believe this place is only 1 1/2 hours to drive to from our house and we never knew it existed! We were pleasantly surprised! It was truly wonderful! The resort is newly renovated and really nice. The lake and all the activities (paddle boards, kayaks, floating "bikes", pontoon and duffy boats, etc....) were great! So peaceful! The pools...

This resort is fairly small to be called a "resort", but the style is creative and they have a nice lake front property. You can kayak, paddle board, rent a boat, etc on the lake with the hotel. We received a 1 hour free rental coupon for each day at the hotel. The kayak we rented was great. The only...

The room is ok. The place gives you a special and restful feeling. The bathroom is spacious. Generally, their customer service is good. Come prepared with at least bottled water. Things get pricey there. Best to book a room when the price is really low.

Nice well-groomed grounds and very clean! For he property in and of itself, I would give 5-stars. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of securing the rooms for a wedding party with my debit card, being assured the card could be changed upon checkin and the guests would be responsible for their own charges. I personally made sure everyone did this...

This place is great. We upgraded to the lake view and that was well worth the price. The staff are friendly and helpful. They even gave a s'mores kit as a welcome gift. They have 2 fire pits to make your s'mores. One is by the pool and the other one between a unit. They also have 2 good size...

Amazing!!! Me, my husband and our 4year old came here for a long easter weekend. This was the perfect staycation hands down.

Happy to have found this hotel. We visited the San Diego Safari Park in Escondido and instead of driving back to Carlsbad decided to stay more local! Happy we did. Staff was very friendly, polite and efficient. The rooms are nice and very clean. The property is right by the lake, it was fun to be able to just walk...

Staff is super friendly, and the rooms are beautiful. My family and I walked along the lake, which was really nice. Toward the evening we hung out in the pool and after we made smores beside the firepit. Our overall stay was a 10. I can't wait to stay again.
