My wife and I stayed at Elmhirst on the couch potato package. We really enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the surroundings were just the place to rejuvenate ourselves. The staff were some of the most genuinely friendly and helpful I have come across in years. Would

I spent a very brief stay at this resort last week while on a business trip and I was completely overwhelmed by what it has to offer. The cottages which are really comfortable and homely sit on the most stunning lake and my first impression was that I wish my family could have

We went there as a substitute for our cancelled visit in San Diego, but it turned out that this visit helped to achieve the same goal of doing some soul searching and cleansing. Here's what has worked: being by the waterfront with our own dockyard, living in a 3 bedroom cottage

I was only recently informed of the review written on August 3, 2016, regarding our last trip to Elmhirst’s Resort. I will start by saying that the review is the opinion of one individual in a large group and does not represent the opinions of the entire group. Our cabins were

Hi Chris, Thanks very much for taking the time to share your feedback about your vacation at Elmhirst's Resort. I believe there is always a bit of teamwork between an innkeeper and the guest to make great stays happen. Sometimes a little extra work is needed from the innkeeper and a little extra trust and understanding from the guest. The result is a long lasting relationship like the one we have with you. We appreciate your trust and understanding and we truly value the relationship. Constructive feedback is also always welcome at the resort. New experience development, renovations, and staff training/communication efforts usually have guest feedback and anticipation of guest needs at their core. Without the feedback this process would never work. Thanks again for your support and we hope to see you again soon! Best wishes until then....

Do any of the cottages have air conditioning?
Hello and thanks for your inquiry. Our cottages have ceiling fans and are all on the lake shore which keeps them very comfortable for the vast majority of the time. It also keeps the traditional cottage feel of the Resort alive and keeps the atmosphere around the cottages more peaceful. I hope this helps and we see you at Elmhirst's Resort soon.....

Hello and thanks very much for your inquiry. We have daily rates from Monday to Thursday and 2 day weekend rates (Friday and Saturday). May is still our lowest rate period of the year and there are no specials per se. Rates are based on the number of people. There are a wide variety of indoor and outdoor recreation activities although it can depend on the weather (May presents us with a bit of a range). Can I suggest you call us at 800-461-1940? We could give you more details right away. Better not wait though; May is already quite busy. Hope this helps and that we will hear from you soon....

"Cottages on the south side are more kids friendly as closer to "sandy" beach which is 5 feet long."
"They all face the lake so just depends on how many in your party."
"Cottage # 52 has very comfortable king size beds!"
"Stay away form cottages 1-5 they are close to boat launch and recreation area."
"cottages are all lakefront...but some are closer to main building restaurant if you do not want to walk...none are that far away though"
