This resort and its guests have been lovingly nurtured by Owner/Operators Susan and Bob for 40 years. I came here as a child and had the privilege to bring my kids here to experience it. The food, setting, and company are top notch!

Thank you for writing, Tom. One of our greatest pleasures in doing what we do has been seeing our little customers grow up to become wonderful caring parents like you who want to share their vacationing experiences with their children. How many jobs can offer that? We are blessed.

We had a great (and too short) stay at Oak Cove this past weekend! It's not often you can have a completely care-free and fun family get-together for 25 people, but Oak Cove exceeded all expectations. It felt like you were taking a step back in time (like the resort in Dirty Dancing - without the dancing),but in the best...

Liz, Thank you so very much for the wonderful review. I especially loved the part about the picky eaters being satisfied. Very funny and true, I guess. We do want to please even the youngest guests. I loved reading all the things you did on the property. We don't always see that as we don't keep track of you and...

My son loved to go to Oak Cove when he was a young boy. This summer when he came to visit us from AZ he requested that we go to Oak Cove so that his two young sons could enjoy the "Oak Cove Experience" as well. All of us enjoyed the beach on Lake Cora, the crystal clear pool, yard...

Thank you, Linda, for those kind words. We loved that Tom remembered so well his experiences that he wanted the boys to share them. They are so darling. I hope they remember their experiences, too. We look forward to seeing all of your grandchildren with you next summer.

We stayed at Oak Cove for a family reunion in June 2013. Oak Cove is such a wonderful place that I want to come back! We have three kids and they loved it as well. They kept very busy at the pool, playing in the lake (paddle boats and playing on the sandy beach) and the fun house. They even...

This is a resort that has been in business 100 years, and it did feel like it was stepping back into time, in the best of ways. The lake is a perfect size, and was warm July 1 even though the weather wasn't. There is also a pool, there is shuffleboard, a game room and good wifi. It's a family...
