I was here for one week with my grandsons (age 8 and 10) this August. This is a perfect resort for kids. Beautiful clear and sandy inland lake, with lots of boats for them to use. My boys enjoyed going out on the stand up paddle boards, the kayaks, the row boats, and the peddle boats. They swam every day...

There's just enough to keep everyone busy (pool, lake, paddle boats, paddle boards, fishing, golf, etc.), but not so much that you'll feel pressured to run around and do everything! This was our second time at the resort, and I'm sure we'll...

Great vacation spot! Located halfway between Chicago and Detroit, and only about one hour from good-sized cities such as Grand Rapids and South Bend. Lots to do, well-equipped with lots of boats, bicycles, horseshoes, volleyballs, etc. (personally, I like to kayak) free of additional charge! Allowed one 18-hole round of golf per day at a nearby course, there's a lakeside...
