The Resort & Guest Rooms
My family stayed in a large family suite complete with two rooms. It was more than large enough for our family of five. It offered two TVs, a king sized bed in one room with a twin bed and trundle bed, a pull out couch and a pull out chair in the adjoining room. There was a door that closed in between the two rooms which gave us privacy and allowed my husband and I to continue watching TV after the boys had fallen asleep.
Our room also had a dresser, night stands, desk, refrigerator and coffee maker. My only disappointment was that the room didn’t have a ton of plugs for our “electronically advanced” family. We made due though, so it wasn’t too big of a problem. We were there to unwind after all, right?
Our King-sized bed and pillows were comfortable and both my husband and I were able to get a good night’s sleep. My boys LOVED their room and that there were so many bedding options. I think they tried them all.
Our room was on the first floor of the Huron Lodge and very close to the door to the outdoor pool. In fact, we were really close to the indoor pool too. This is perfect if you are bringing your kids along. I found that the Huron building is centrally located and I’d definitely request this area when we stay again.
Fun and Food at Sawmill Creek Resort
While staying at Sawmill Creek Resort, we enjoyed as many activities as we could fit in. Of course a dip in the pool was a must for my boys and Sawmill Creek Resort offers two to choose from. I did notice that the indoor hot tub wasn’t hot at all but my kiddos didn’t seem to mind. What I loved the most about the pools is how big and perfectly clean they were!
After swimming, we took a hike at the Nature Preserve and grabbed bikes to ride around the property. We checked out the observation deck located right on the shores of Lake Erie and got a complimentary ride to the beach (this is open for everyone).
We had worked up an appetite so we grabbed a bite to eat at the laid back Mulligan’s Pub which is located inside Sawmill Creek Golf Clubhouse. You can choose the cozy dining room but the weather was perfect to sit outside on the patio. We enjoyed the views which munching on some juicy burgers and appetizers. If you’d rather relax in your room, carry out is available too.
