We stayed in the newly constructed or renovated lodge suite (#53). This suite has a small kitchenette, living room and a bedroom and bathroom. We also had the bedroom/bathroom adjacent (#53A) and communicating...

Thank you for your recent stay at Sun Castle Resort. We offer both single story villas built in the 1960-1970's that provide a more rustic feel in a cabin like setting. We also offer two-story townhouses built after 2000 that offer the feeling of your modern home on the lake. The townhouses have full kitchens including stove, microwave and dishwasher....

Just finished up staying in one of the townhouses with a pretty big group. The views of the lake from the balcony were beautiful. The place was clean and modern.

Stayed here for two night and the place was perfect. The interior was a little dated but our townhouse had two very large bathrooms and bedrooms, perfect for two couples. The master had its on deck with a fabulous view of the lake. Would definitely stay here again.

Most website pics are of the new townhomes. It's easy to be misled. The villa's kitchens and bathrooms are extremely outdated. There is no pretty landscaping. The central air was broken, so the windows were crowded with units. A third of the crank window handles were missing. Half the vertical blinds in the living room were missing/broken. There were no...
