RV sites, cabins Furnished apartments

We have a variety of spacious cabins available for our guests.  We have  2 Tiny Home cabins that sleep 4 people, and 1 Tiny Home that is a family-oriented to sleep Six Persons.  We have 2 smaller cabins set in the woods.   And we have 2 furnished apartments open year round.

The 3 of our cabins are Tiny Home Park Model RV’s!  Ideal for couples or a small family looking to enjoy the outdoors and get back to nature while retaining the luxurious conveniences of Heat,  Air Conditioning and full baths. Each cabin is complete with queen bed and bunks, thick towels and bedding with down comforters, refrigerator, micro wave, real dishes, coffee pot, toaster, Satellite “Dish” TV, gas grill, fire ring and picnic table. The decor is darling and we have tried to think of every convenience, even microwave popcorn and an iron!  These three cabins are over looking the lake from the front porch, and are near the docks.

In 2014 we added two smaller economy cabins in the wooded area. They are back to back, sharing a middle wall, with private entrances so might be enjoyed by  two families. These have private bathrooms, queen futon with twin bunk, Satellite “Dish” TV, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, coffee pot, small table and chairs. Picnic table and fire ring at all cabins are part of the relaxing experience.

We have Wi Fi Hotspots available at the Spa Common Building and the Grain Bin Office.  Being a rural setting, we have limited bandwidth, so video streaming and gaming or zoom meetings do not work at our facility.  If you have special needs please contact us.

For the ultimate couples retreat, call Buena Vista Resort about our Romantic Getaway Package for these cabins.  Relax and enjoy privacy and the quiet of the evening with a camp fire, stocked refrigerator and a bottle of wine included in the package.

For longer term stays we offer two completely furnished private apartments available for traveling nurses and construction families working in our area.  One interesting apartment is in upstairs of the Grain Bin. It has a queen bed, linen and blankets, bathroom  with shower, a complete kitchen with  gas stove and oven, dishwasher, and all the dishes and cooking utensils that you will need. Wi Fi, Satellite “Dish”TV, and all utilities are included. Laundry facilities are located on the first floor. A gas grill and picnic table are part of the gorgeous setting overlooking the lake with a pair of Mute Swan.

A second, totally furnished apartment in the upstairs of the Lodge is also available.  It is very spacious with private bath and shower, electric range, furnished kitchen, walk in closet, queen bed, Dish TV, Wi Fi, and all the amenities of home.  There is a great sitting porch with the lake wrapping around three sides of the Lodge and the big oak trees in the yard.  This is great for a traveling professional couple or single.

Our spaces are 60 feet between neighbors (an unusual amount of green space), and long enough for big rigs with tow vehicles, some are 90 feet long.  Our park is quiet and well manicured.  We have 65 pads, all full hook-ups (sewer, city water, 50 amp, 30 amp and 20 amp 110 v).

You can choose your setting over looking the woods or the lake!  We have 3 spots designated as “buddy sites” where your doorways face each other with a fire ring in the middle.  Fishing is great with 2 mature lakes well stocked with Large Mouth Bass, Catfish, Bluegill and Crappie.  Trails are maintained through the woods for hiking. Volleyball, dodge ball, basketball, horse shoe courts and a large toy (ship and castle) are all activities for the family to enjoy.  We loan various lawn games and have plenty of green space for all to enjoy.  We love to host family reunions in our cabins and RV spots.


Any site may can be leased for the season, from April 1 through October 31,  beginning at $2000.00. Prices vary based on the amenities such as concrete patio, pull through or lake views.   We strive for a cohesive community atmosphere for those who want to leave the driving behind and have a get away home with spectacular views and easy living.
