With kind words like your own, we hope to keep this going for years to come. We realize we have a niche here that is old fashioned and many people going back in time to a simpler day. Just like you did as a child. Thanks for the boost.

Our group gathered in Lawrence Michigan at Oak Cove resort for the 23rd year! My family stays in Mom's Meadow Muffin cottage, facing East looking over Lake Cora where I watched the sun rise on the mornings that I was awake. We love Susan and Bob's hospitality. They make us feel like part of their family and we feel that they are a part of ours. The breakfasts and dinners are plentiful and delicious. I particularly love the peanut butter pie for dessert as well as the cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Lake Cora is clean and beautiful and they have a nice sand beach with 2 swim rafts. We bring a motorboat and jet ski which we tie up on their piers that we also fish off of, though they have quite a fleet of row boats, canoes, paddle boats, kayaks and standing paddle boards.

The staff is helpful and friendly, helping us with our needs or any quick repairs, and the waitstaff are mostly local high school students, learning beautifully about hospitality from Susan and Bob.

We had another wonderful week at Oak Cove and begin counting the days until we return next year.

I brought my sales team to the Oak Cove Resort for a regional meeting. Bob and Susan were fabulous hosts and made all of us feel like family. The property is on a beautiful lake and the outdoor activities were just what I wanted for our group. Bob and Susan were very accommodating in helping us with meeting space and all other requests that we had. A number of our group plan on bringing their families to this place for vacation and reunions. Awesome time was had by all!

You all were fun guests to have here. I said to you: "Did you bring my tape?" and you said: "You are never more than ten feet away from one of our 80,000 products!" Really? I had no idea! We learned a lot from you.
What a great company and you take good care of your employees. BTW, thanks for the safety glasses with the power lights. We have had an occasion to use them already. We do hope your colleagues come back with their families or that you have another meeting here. Thanks for the review and five stars!

We had a wonderful family vacation. The food was amazing as was our lodging. Everone, from Grandma to grandkids and adults were very satisfied. The kayaks, paddle boats, paddle board, and pontoon boat helped us to enjoy the beautiful beach and resort.

The title says it all.....Top Notch Service and Absolute Dedication to Customers Who Are Genuinely Treated Like "Family.". We took a four day getaway with our twin 10 year old granddaughters and could not have mafe a better choice. Bob And Sue and the ENTIRE staff were so accommodating and caring....a lost art in today's hectic world. Swimming, fishing, boating, fabulous EATING, visiting the Kalamazoo Air Zoo (a secret gem of a musuem) and of course the Oak Cove"Fun House."

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Beach House" which worked fine for the four of us. Next time we would like to try one of the other cabins. And there will be a next time

Well, thank you for your very kind words. Don't we have the best job ever? Waiting on great folks like you and then reading this. Yes, the Air Zoo is a hidden gem like Oak Cove is. Sometimes you don't appreciate what is in your own neighborhood. So glad you found us!
