"Beautiful place."

This is a splendid location right next to the water. The owners are friendly and helpful and make you feel more "guest" and less "customer". This is not a Big 4 park with the Big $ associated but still there is a pool and a playground and amenities are clean... We had a great stay and
definitely plan to be back.



"WOW the views the staff and the rooms what value for $$$."

For the price this is best place I've ever stayed. If you have never been to Talbingo its definitely worth a visit for much needed peace and quiet or plenty do if that's your thing...
Will be back soon.
