We went with 3 other families and had a terrific time. The place offered a great value and had all the amenities for a great family friendly time in the country. We fished, spent time in the pool & BBQ'ed. Strongly recommend!

We just returned from a great weekend with friends. Our group had 4 adults and 6 kids. We found the resort to be cozy and quaint with beautiful views of the lake.

There are good and bad thing about this place. The good include the friendly staff, price, the location, and just the overall feel of the resort. I thought our room (6) could use a little updating. Overall it had everything one would need but we did find some mouse droppings in one of the drawers. This was immediately taken care...

The owners, Ryan and Kiera, as well as the entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant. The resort was well kept and in the perfect location!

One of the best experiences I've had on a weekend getaway. the cottage was nice and clean, with everything needed. The staff team were very prompt with answers/assistance. A stones throw from Indiana Beach, yet secluded enough to avoid the hustle and bustle of the park. Our patio ( cottage 3) had a great view of the lake, and it...

We stayed at Pirates cove on June 19th and June 20th the Management team was the best. What ever we needed they were there to help us. The room was clean and the main reason I stay there is because the team at Pirates cove makes our family feel welcomed.
