Literally everything was great, but what stands out most is the way we were treated by Bob and Susan and their entire staff. I went with my Dad and 4 kids (ages 8-13) and they consistently greeted us by name, including when I first walked in the office as Bob was expecting me. You feel personally cared for and they...

Well, Eddie, that was lovely. Thank you so much for saying all those nice things and the fact is, we really enjoyed you, your wonderful, fun Irish dad and your beautiful kids. You are the kind of guests we love to have. Thanks for finding us and we hope you will come back.

This August was our third summer vacation spent at Oak Cove. The kids absolutely love the trip and I love having our own little cottage, lots to keep the kids occupied and wonderful meals that I haven't had to prepare! We take several afternoon trips to the amazing west coast beaches, only minutes away. Visiting the little downtowns and enjoying...

We recently visited Oak Cove (my wife, myself and son who is almost 2) and had a great time. We were able to stay for eight days in the Beach House. I feel like I am just going to reiterate what all these other reviews have already said, but they do sum it up well. The staff is extremely friendly...

We loved seeing you play with Nolan when we went back and forth on our golf carts. An especially favorite moment was when you were holding him up so he could hit the tether ball! There's nothing more profound for a child than having two loving parents giving him their undivided attention. And you are right, we were sincerely happy...

Based on the reviews from tripadvisor, our family planned a 5 day visit to Oak Cove. I was looking for some R&R along with enough activity to keep my 3 teenagers happy. We weren't dissapointed. We were kept busy with boating and water activities along with outdoor games, campfires and pinball. The food was good old fashioned homemade fair and...

Well, thanks for writing. It is always encouraging to know that even the young people (who are our very best customers) can get away from the hectic pace of life at home and enjoy themselves doing a little bit of nothing but having fun. Everyone needs to kick back and have a blast as you so aptly put it. Thanks...

We found Oak Cove on Trip Advisor, when we were looking for a place to stay near Sagatauk. Oak Cove Resort offers old-fashioned fun for the family, with every activity you can imagine, just as their website describes. The clean accommodations, homemade breakfasts, and dinner buffets aren't fancy; they fit the type of resort it is. When the dinner bell...

A very nice review. I really love reading those! Was it you who told me you found us on Tripadvisor? One of our latest guests said that. I think it's really better for potential customers to take your word for it rather than ours so we appreciate everyone who writes as we know it takes forethought and effort. Thank you...

We joined other family members at Oak Cove in August 2013. The resort is charming, and the accommodations are very clean and well maintained. One gets the impression that as soon as something requires attention, Bob, Sue and their well-staffed team address it immediately. That attention to detail, along with the friendly hospitality, delicious meals, and pretty setting make Oak...
