We just stayed at the Lilly bear cabin 6 for a couple nights. Overall, we would not stay here again. The word "resort" is used but I would call it a row of old cabins. The kid area is a couple old outdoor toys and there's nothing else right there. If you don't plan on spending any time here except...

We stayed in a condo off site of Grey Squirrel in Pelican Pines. We had plenty of space for our family of four. It was a 2 level unit with one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs. There were a total of 4 beds. The rooms and bathrooms were sufficiently clean. The beds are hard. The kitchen needs to be updated...

The booking experience was easy over the phone and was really convenient being that it was last minute during a busy weekend. We booked through Grey Squirrel and stayed at Creek Runner's lodge which is one of the hand full of properties that they manage.

I am the review queen! I look at multiple sites before I book anywhere. I was very hesitant to book from some of the review complaints I saw. However, I was pleasantly surprised! We stayed in the "Raccoon cabin" with our dog. A nice 1 bedroom down stairs, and a loft with 2 queen beds upstairs. The cabin was clean...

Blown away ! We have been staying with the Grey Squirrel for several years now. Cabin #20 " Squirrels Nest " was beyond perfect. This was our first time staying since the new ownership. The last time we stayed the upstairs master was huge ! with 4 queen beds in the room. Its now been split up into a large...

This resort is under new ownership/management & they're trying really hard & making great improvements. We've stayed here for many years & at first were skeptical, but they've won us over. Our usual cabin (Chipmunk) was as welcoming & cozy as always with several updates (new furniture, faucets, flooring, stove etc.) & very clean. New bedding with plentiful puffy pillows....very...

My sister rented the Squirrels Nest #20 for our family Christmas party. What a beautiful home! A large living room and family room combined with a vaulted ceiling made an excellent place for 40 of us to play and eat. Several bedrooms provided plenty of sleeping space, up to 14 she said. The fireplace and pool table were put to...

Great staff - very friendly. always available. Super helpful. Awesome cabin - good size, nicely equipped kitchen. Plenty of hot water. Quick tip: Buy the wood from the front desk. But bring your own fire starters.
