    My husband and I along with our then teen-aged son stayed at Darnell's in the summer of 2006. We loved every minute and having a room leading right to the grounds, beach and pool was an added bonus. We would like to return next summer (2016) and thought about renting the Penthouse. In 2006, our room along with the rooms of our friends were in pretty bad shape at that time. The full-size bed in the bedroom was extremely uncomfortable and the sofabed in the living was even worse which is where our son slept. The living room itself was very dark, carpet worn, walls needed paint, cobwebs and it had a heavy musty smell. The only real plus was having a small kitchen to prepare meals and snacks. So, have these rooms had any type of an upgrade? Reading recent reviews, I love hearing the raves about the pool and hot tub, even in 2006 it was absolutely the cleaniest and well-maintained pool and hot-tub I had ever used at a vacation resort. Love hearing that the grounds are still manicured and the the beach area remains pristine. We would love to have a 4 generation family reunion, my parents are in their early 80's so family time together is precious. Darnell's location is prefect and my parents would absolutely love the pool, hot tub and lounging by the lake. Teenagers would love everything. I need an honest response as to the condition of the Penthouse. At $450 per night and that's probably before taxes, I really want our family to truly enjoy the Penthouse as well. We would plan to spend 4 nights. Thank you for your time and candid response.
