Jack and Arlene Rawls along with their son Jim purchased the resort in September 2010 formerly known as the Homestead Resort for the past 50 years. We renamed the resort and have begun to remodel and update all services and facilities here for our guests added comfort. Our ideal is to give the very best service at affordable prices with satisfied customers who come back for years of fun and relaxation.
We have remodeled cabins 1-4, giving them a much needed facelift for our customers comfort. For our guests comfort we are remodeling cabins 5, 6, & 7 this winter 2011/12 and shall have them opened March 1 in time for our fishing contest. We have expanded the flower gardens and will continue to do so until they are completed ending up with a waterfall and a private sitting area to enjoy. We have a children's area we are in the final stages of putting together for the young ones to come and slide or play on the swing set.
