I really wanted to leave a 5-star rating, especially since the property managers were polite and responsive, but with so many other options out there, and after each night spent at this place, I was forced to start subtracting stars because of little inconveniences adding up to a whole lot of legit annoyances to our entire group. The first of which was the resort's definition of "linens provided." Imagine waking up the first morning wanting to shower and realizing oh, there aren't any bath mats. Or any hand towels. Or for that matter, any hand soap. (Or any dish soap, as we discovered while checking out, since they require you to scrub any pots or pans you've used.) This required a buzzkill hour long shopping roundtrip to Target back in Bemidji soon after arriving. Maybe all of these items were available in the office to purchase for an extra cost, not sure, but that would have been even more aggravating. The final insult was the laundry machines costing extra as well, since one couple had to bring a ton of baby clothes for their 1 year old, but didn't anticipate also needing to bring a roll of quarters like it was college laundromat days again. Actually, the final insult was the shoddy and dangerously sharp ladder at the end of the main beach dock. Everyone made the most out of the trip, including several pontoon boat rides out on the lake (a tank of gas was extra on top of rental fee for entire 4 day trip, even though you have to stop using it at 7 pm the night before your departure) and we had a great deal of fun (partly because we created a running joke about everything imaginable costing extra like the pillows probably) but will definitely be booking a more guest-friendly place next year. It's like this resort secretly hates its customers or something. Or just wants to extract every dollar of profit from them, which puts a stressful damper on a relaxing weekend everyone's been waiting for since the same time last year. At least they provided free fire-wood so they get 3 out of 5 stars. Actually, no, on second thought they only get 2 stars because recycling all our cans, bottles and cardboard wasn't an option despite living in a green state and visiting a part of it where conservation and preservation of the environment is usually a priority. Some people reading this may think we're just spoiled city-folk, but when you have to work really hard all year to afford a vacation at a resort, you kind of just want everything to be hassle-free.
