The way we were treated was unacceptable. We ended up being overcharged for everything; extra for our dog, another $150 bc we had an extra person (who didn't get an extra bed anyway or even the blanket & pillow that was promised), we paid an obscure amount for a tin boat & then were told we had to pay even more for them to supply gas, they told us only one person (the eldest male who wasn’t even licensed) was allowed to drive the boat of our group bc the three people who had boaters licenses were all females, etc. We quickly realized that the man, Dieter, who runs the so called “resort” was extremely racist, sexist, & ageist – he even told us he had no problem calling first nations people “ind*ans” & people of colour “n*ggers” (some of our group being part of these minorities). They were extremely rude & suspicious of the young adults of the group right away also.
The location is prime on the lake but the cottage itself was in poor condition. There were terrible bug problems from the time we arrived, most pertinent were the ants in the kitchen & there were always spiders & moths in every room. It was difficult sleeping in a room where moths flew into you at night & there was even a spider on my face one night. The beds are a mix of box springs or a thin mattress & they are uncomfortable; the walls are too thin; they lack basic essentials as far as appliances & kitchenware goes; the stove was barely functional; the bathroom door & other doors do not shut properly; the owners were supposed to supply toilet paper but they didn’t & it wasn’t ever refilled when asked. Despite having a sign stating that they would do anything to make us comfortable, their best efforts did not suffice in the least.
Ads online are very misleading - They make their “resort” sound a lot better than it is. Most disappointing of all was their so called “world famous fire”. We had not been allowed to have a fire during the beginning of the week so we had high hopes which ended up being short lived. We were exposed to the man, Dieter, that owns the grounds freaking out at one of his employees & throwing a hot grill while swearing despite the presence of children. Six buckets of water were then thrown on the fire even though guests were still enjoying it. The next night when we attempted to make our own fire we were told that there is a fire ban & we couldn’t. We called the fire department & found that there wasn’t so we proceeded. A little while later the woman, Monika, who owns the grounds came & dumped water on our fire & splashed us with it in the process. When we asked why, we were told to ask Dieter & she would not give us an answer. We were in awe with how rudely we were treated & confused why our fire was put out when there were others happening on the grounds. We called the number we were given to call if we had any concerns & terrible service continued and escalated.
On the phone we were told that they “don’t care that other campers were having fires” & that we, as guests, “don’t make the rules”. We simply asked for a reason as to why our camp in particular wasn’t allowed to have a fire & they refused to answer & said we aren’t capable of understanding much. Soon enough, Dieter came over to our cottage on a golf cart & began screaming outside the cottage that housed small children who were sleeping as it was close to 11pm. He yelled some more about how he makes the rules, refused to answer why others were allowed fires & we weren’t, destroyed a lawn chair by running it over with his golf cart, & left us feeling unsafe & confused about the entire situation. Why did our dog have to be leashed at all times while others never were, why was our fire was put out while other fires continued on & why does any ever bothers to return to this joke of a “resort”. We won’t be returning to this horrible “vacation” spot where guests are treated poorly & the owners are racist, discriminating, & unwelcoming. Do not waste your money or vacation time at this joke of a place. We are sorry we did.
