"It has always been a joy to come to Lake Beresford for me. A place that quickly gets me to my “kid side”. To have this beautiful place to stay this time was an extra special treat…and refuge…and vacation for us. Even though it has been only two days, we are renewed!

The care you have taken with all the details for comfort and appearance are a delight. This has been a blessing!! One problem…makes home feel like roughing it!!!
