“We love that old fashioned lake experience – swimming only in the lake, preparing our own food, and without the large crowds.”
“This coming July will be the 5th year I have taken my three children and their families (a total of 13) to River Point Resort for 3 to 4 days of reconnecting one with the other. We have children ranging from 2 to 13 years in our group. We have always reserved all three of the Villas and one of the close-by cabins. It works beautifully for sharing meals and board games while still having privacy and quiet time for each family.
Because we have the Villas to ourselves, we are able to have two long picnic tables outside where we gather at lunch, and sometimes dinner. The grills make it easy. We can also share dinners at the cabin, each family responsible for one. Following we gather around the campfire by the water, sometimes with a face painting station, lots of running about with flashlights, maybe a skit, and always s’mores. The sunsets are spectacular, as are the calls of the loon.
Of course, during the day enormous energy is expended jumping off of the aqua-jump swim raft and climbing back on while the little ones build elaborate structures in the sand. The kayaking is great, a little hiking path close by to discover blueberries and other mysterious growing things, and islands to explore when we have the pontoon or boat.
A one day excursion into town usually finds us at the Wolf Center or, if it coincides, the Blueberry Festival. We have also found it is nice to enjoy a meal at one of several family friendly restaurants.
Jane, Steve, and James run a superbly well organized and friendly resort. Everything inside and out is meticulously cared for, clean, and attractive. The resort is small enough that at times we feel we are the only people there. We love that old fashioned lake experience – swimming only in the lake, preparing our own food, and without the lare crowds. I might mention that an afternoon side trip was taken last year by 4 of the adults, led by one of the staff, to see petroglyphs. They loved it.
I guess I’m trying to say I think it is a fabulous place to go, whatever your purpose. You will be impressed. However, I must also say I am a bit reluctant to encourage more people to discover this treasure of a place, since it might become difficult to schedule our trips!!!”
