Reviews of The Village at Izatys
What a great place and a great location. Fun for the entire family! So much to do at the resort and nearby. It is a quiet and peaceful area. We will be back!
We really enjoyed our stay in an F unit from 7-31 to 8-6-11. It was a 2 bedroom lockoff on the 2nd floor. Very spacious villa with all the amenities and a nice view of the golf course and lake from the balcony. Many activities available with fishing, boating, tennis and huge casino about 10 miles away. My wife and I enjoyed biking around the area on the complimentary bikes provided. Many people were catching fish from the dock in the inlet between the main lake and the marina area. You can bring your own boat and dock it in the marina for a small fee. The swimming pool area with a bar, restaurant, and beach volley ball court was festive with music played over the speaker system. Overall this was a very enjoyable experience.
The F-units are the best deal all around and have everything you need. Just bring food!
They had the latest model Jet Skis and pontoon boats up to 24 feet long and luxurious.
Hunting and fishing galore during the warm season, and tons of winter activities including professionally groomed snowmobile trails and entire ice fishing villages on the huge lake.
Very nice resort with several great amenities. The 2BR, 2BA is very spacious with full size kitchen, living room (with fireplace), dining room (table seats 8), washer /dryer, and 3/4 bath on first floor. Second floor has the 2 bedrooms. Master BR has full size jacuzzi, shower and king size bed. Second BR has its own bathroom and tub/shower. The entire unit is very nicely decorated and comfortable. Each unit has its own grill out the back door, great for summer barbecue.
Short walk to the resort's pools (one indoor and one outdoor), clubhouse, arcade, marina and 2 very nice golf courses. Great deal on Monday for golfers - for $69 you can play both courses (Sanctuary and Black Brook). Fee includes carts and a buffet lunch between your rounds! You can rent boats and jet skis (or launch your own) at the marina.
The only downside we found was the lack of activities for younger children on the resort and in the general area for a full week vacation. There's only so much hiking and swimming you can expect from kids under 10.
About 15 minutes away is a very nice casino, the Grand Casino Mille Lacs. They have a great children's area (KidsQuest), which is an excellent way to get a few hours at the tables while the kids are playing in an adult- supervised environment.
Overall, we had a great time and recommend it to local vacationers, especially if you have your own boat or jet skis or you want to get in a few rounds of golf on very nice courses.
Absolutely beautiful condos. The best I have ever been in for timeshares. Two nice golf courses. Great fishing. Pool is ok. Food and service was very good in the restaurant.
