Absolutely beautiful location! VERY kid friendly. Basketball court, volleyball court, tire swing, regular swings, merry-go-round, all nestled in the wooded area. Horses on site, very friendly handlers, nice stable location for horses. Message therapy on site for $39 for an hour! Loved that! Nice big clean pool area. Beautiful putting greens (looks like a mini gold course to me). Beautifully landscaped. Elegant & fun restaurant w/ pool tables, dance floor and bar area. Cabins are a bit close, however it's VERY quiet and private. You can move tables/chairs around however you like. Fire pit and charcoal grills available. We stayed in cabin 11 (deluxe cabin) and we were very pleased. Cabins are 50 years old, decorations are out of date, furniture is old. However, if we wanted the ""Hilton"" then that's where we would have stayed. We stayed at Echo for the beautiful location, BIG cabin w. amenities, family friendly, pool, golf, horse back riding, etc. So just keep that in mind if you choose to stay here. It's like camping ""upscale"". The deluxe cabin does have a full service kitchen, 2 bathrooms, enough space to comfortably sleep 15 people, and the coolest little cubby hole behind the stair case, PERFECT for toys and for kids to play! Overall, we are pleased and would consider going back for another family vacation!
