What our guests are saying

"I spent time at Heath's every summer during most of my childhood, so it is near and dear to my heart. I had the privilege of staying there last week with my husband and extended family - it was such a great time. The resort has had many updates and things added to it yet kept the same family fun feel. The beach is a rare treasure in size and toy offerings (both for kids at heart and the wee ones), the cabins are extremely well-kept, the view is breathtaking and the towns to explore nearby fill up the week fast! I would go back in a heartbeat. I hope you can experience the love of Heath's too." - Marie Schuler
