Scott's is perfect for a family vacation. I stayed last week and had a great time. Where else can you get an all-inclusive experience, with golf, water-skiing, swimming, canoeing, all day sporting events, huge game room, cookouts and three good meals at this price? But the real experience is the entertainment. The Scott's family are first and foremost entertainers. Every...

Old, dirty and disgusting. Holes in walls. Saggy beds. Moldy smelling rooms with no towels and cigarette ashes. It was so gross my wife refused to shower in the shower in our room. I was embarrassed to have put my family in that situation. We would have been better off pitching a tent or sleeping in our car. DO NOT...

The first sign of trouble was the lobby. It was like walking into somebody's great-grandmother's living room: 75 yr old furniture that should've bern replaced years ago - or at the very least CLEANED. Used & abused and smelly. After 10 minutes of the clerk looking for the keys (!) to our room, we headed upstairs. One foot inside the...

Dream vacation? Can't wait to go Back! Lovely Family Reunion? Are these people on crack? -no These quite simply are the Scott family writing their own glowing reviews to counter the real 1 star reviews. I think an earlier reviewer quote of "sniffing glue under a bridge is almost as depressing as staying at Scotts lake House. Once you check...

At first I was shocked at how old the place is. It took about hour to get adjusted. Then the beauty and charm came out. Its hay day was about 50+ years ago. Most everything about the place is 100 years old including the pool tables and the bowling alley. Amazing any of it even exists anymore. You can tell...
