We are just back from a 8 night stay at Mt. Knoll. We've been going with our young family for a few years and this was the best stay we've had. A nice property with lake views and easy lake access via a good sized sandy beach. Our cabin was "up the hill" and was a 90 second walk to the water. Great for kids...because they always forget something or need to use the bathroom!
Our 8 year old son had a blast as usual...in and out of the water, but also made a nice group of friends while we were there. Our 2 year old daughter loved digging in the sand on the nice clean beach that was raked each morning. They alos loved running around the large lawn area, using the swings and trying to figure out how to play the throw-back shuffle board game:)
The log cabin we stayed in was great...met our needs and had a good amount of space. A large screened in porch was great for games with the kids and a relaxing spot for the parents after our kids hit the hay.
Our cabin, and all of them, are modest and a bit of a throw back. Yes they have AC and flat screen TVs, but the furnishings are a bit dated:) They are clean and provide a full kitchen and outdoor grills and picnic areas. Except for the rainy day you aren't going to spend much time sitting around the cabin.
Overall top ratings for the location, the view, the amenities, the owner (always there to help...from cleaning the grill to starting a fire on the beach...) and the people! It's a family place and the other guests have always been great. The property is big enough to do your own thing and then to gather with friends on the beach or for evening sparklers and smores with the other kids.
The different cabins are each a bit unique so I can't speak to each of them. If you are looking for the most modern furnishings, you won't find them here, but for a clean comfortbale place with good people and a great location it can't be beat!
