“Rustic Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2011

We stayed in the 4-bedroom/2-bath home on Golf Road overlooking the golf course. It fit the needs of our family perfectly (three kids- ages 8,7, and 4). Oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, full kitchen with dishwasher and a large family room with fireplace- great to read stories near the crackling fire at night. We NEVER watched the TV and the kids didn't ask. Nothing fancy, everything straight out of the 1950's- decor and even the smell of the rooms reminded me of my grandparents' house.

Little Sister has old-school, rustic, woodsy charm. At first, we weren't sure if we made the right decision because there was no pool and we were worried that there wasn't going to be enough to do. However, after a few minutes on the beach, we realized it was better to not have a pool. The kids were captivated with jumping off of the pier, swimming in the lake and trying to swim "far out" with life jackets on, and making sandcastles on the kids beach. The resort allows you to take out boats and bikes for free.

Finally, can't stress enough the convenience of the FANTASTIC free morning breakfasts. Our kids were able to gorge and we were able to last until dinner with a light lunch/snacks on our own.

In a nutshell, Little Sister Resort was exactly what we were looking for. It is not cheap, but they do not nickel and dime you. I like being on vacation and not having to carry my wallet all around the resort. Love the experience, loved the surroundings, and enjoyed the guests. Family oriented, good folk all around.

Room Tip: Can't go wrong. Cabins and Chalets are adorable. Golf Road house for larger parties.

LSR has always been the one place where both of us can truly unwind. Friendly staff... it is nice being welcomed back year after year by name. Most of the time we have had Cottage 23 with screen porch and stone woodburning fireplace. The cottage is clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are great. The food at LSR's Fred & Fuzzy's Waterfront Grill is very good, They used to serve dinners 5 nights a week, but changing times.... Great hiking in nearby state parks.

We stayed here for a week and loved it! We stayed in one of the chalets and enjoyed having the comforts of two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and cable TV with a DVD player. However, it was quiet and secluded enough that we felt as if we had still "left it all behind." Our daughter loved the children's beach and the playground located on the property, and we all loved being able to take out one of the resort's pedal boats onto the lake.

I've been to this resort 5 out of the last 6 years and it just amazes me at how it seems like home away from home. The service is wonderful; the staff friendly; and the rooms are so comfortable and cozy with their fireplaces and recliners. Also, I don't believe I've ever slept better on the road!
The resort itself is nestled in some of the most scenic and beautiful country I've ever seen. The sunsets are awesome, and Fred and Fuzzy's is a terrific place to unwind with a few drinks and/or have dinner while watching the sun go down. If you happen to still be there once it's dark, you'll witness a sky filled with stars (saw 7 shooting stars last trip!)

My Mom & I are among many regular visitors to Little Sister Resort. We stay every fall around mid-October. We always reserve the same cabin for the following year when we leave. The staff is very accomodating and always greets us by name. We have also stayed in the chalet a few times as well. The entire property is always clean, quiet & welcoming. Firewood is provided for the cabins with fireplaces, which adds even more charm to an autumn getaway! Prices stayed consistent for the 10 years we have been going & are very reasonable.
