I can see why you mentioned some of the rooms have a lot of empty space - feels like they could have more furniture, doesn't it? Still - I'd take it.

Marina hours?

Hi, there. Does anyone know the summer operating hours for the watercraft rental at the GF Marina? Does it really close at 5pm? That's so early when it's light until 10!

I had planned to rent a pontoon or Montauk on the afternoon we arrive to tool around the lake before a 7:50 ADR at 1900PF. But if the marina closes at 5, I guess I will have to make other plans. I don't want to be stuck with almost 3 hours of time to kill at the GF (not with an almost 4 yr old, anyway!)

We are staying at the CBR, so maybe an afternoon of swimming and head over to GF around 6:30.

iheartthemouse - thanks! When I get time, I'll see if I can move things around so I can post some of yours with the other suite photos. I'm only allowed 25 images per post - sounds like a lot until you start trying to organize.

Welcome! The photos of the marina on the first page were taken in March 2011, so the summer hours are possibly longer. However, I asked DD if it is usually closed by 5 p.m., as we've had numerous occasions when some of our party have tried to rent and weren't able to for various reasons - she says 5 or so is pretty close to the year 'round closing. You will not be able to rent if there is lightning detected, either; we've tried at 2 in the afternoon and not gotten to rent due to weather.

Perhaps someone who is at the resort now can take a look at the current hours and report back!

Good morning and Happy Fathers day to all you Dad's out there.

Just wanted to drop in and say hello to the wonderful GF junkies. We have 8 more days to go. Still a bit sad that we won't be at the GF but can't wait to visit.

Still haven't packed yet. Now my DS keeps asking me when are we going to pack and I am like soon.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads on the forums.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

David 1980 - Oooh, so close! Safe travels and I hope the weather cooperates. Have a Grand vacation!

CoachBagFanatic - I'm so impressed with your willpower, way to go! LOL about your son's confusion, I'm sure he's wondering what's up with Mom?!
