My husband and I brought our 6 grandkids for a week of "Cousins' Camp" this past summer and we had such fun. There were so many things for us to do outside that we never needed to leave the grounds! We stayed in Cabin 7, which is a huge home, and couldn't have asked for nicer

Our stay was wonderful! The kids had a blast swimming in the pool, playing mini golf, and using the paddle boats! Great fishing. Friendly office staff, maintenance crew, and owners. We will definitely be back again!

We visited Bigfoot Resort for 4 nights. There is good and bad! Let's start with the good! Nice for the kids! Pool was kept open for us which we appreciated. Beach was a great area to play and the kids really preferred to play in the water and sand even tho it was chilly.

I have not been good at responding to reviews and keeping this forum updated, as I also should also be with our Facebook page. I plan to work on that. I appreciate constructive criticisms as this reviewer has offered. When the majority of your guests are back year after year, a person can tend to get complacent and not make changes that they probably should to the cabin or grounds. After reading this most recent review, my wife and I walked through the cabin noting what we thought should be changed, then we spent some time relaxing in the cabin and we saw even more. We have had the resort for 18 years, and for the first 10 or 12 years made huge changes to everything most every year, but have let some things linger in recent years that we probably should not have. We found a lot in this cabin that we are now working on and more yet to come. For starters we have installed knotty pine throughout the entry area and up the stairs. It’s a great first impression when you first walk in now…smells nice too. This cabin had the old bi-fold doors on the closets throughout the cabin. Those are all gone now and have just trimmed the frame of the door openings with knotty pine with no doors. Much brighter and cleaner looking. The ceiling in the lower level had lighting behind clear ceiling panels, and the light was not well distributed or bright, despite the size bulb placed behind. Those have all been replaced with recessed LED lights which protrude through the ceiling, which are very bright and distribute the light very well. The interior doors were oak with a fairly dark stain and trim. As of today, all lower level doors and all but the upstairs bath door have been replaced, and that bath door should be done next week. We are having to work between rentals. The new doors are 6 panel white solid core for sound suppression. All trim is knotty pine, and the combination brightens it up and obviously gives a nice updated look. The upstairs living area TV had problems when we sat to watch it…the intensity was not even from side to side. Even thought that TV was only 2 years old we replaced it with a 49” 4k UHD TV. The picture is phenomenal. All bedrooms have a TV as does the lower entryway. Some have built in DVD players. All lighting has been changed to LED, except the new floor lamp in the living area and the kitchen which are fluorescent. The large window in the living area will also be changed out this winter or spring with side sliding vent windows instead of the double hung style that is installed now. We noticed that vapor has gotten between the glass panes. This is an original window from when the cabin was built in the 80’s so it’s due to be replaced. All blinds in the living/dining area have been changed to curtains I hope these changes will help you consider coming to see us again!

We went for our first time as a family to a lake for a full week. We were not sure what to expect. We arrived and it was a very beautiful lake and scenery. We seen loons, seagulls, ducks and more. The cabin we rented is just the size we needed for our size family. It was very
