With 19 rental units spread over 28 acres of lawn, sandy beach, forest and marshland, Ampersand Bay Resort offers our guests the opportunity to get away or get together.

Each townhome, cabin, cottage and suite offers a full kitchen, outdoor grill, porch, and two or three spacious bedrooms.

Our visitors are invited to enjoy our complimentary canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle board and pedal-boat to explore the miles of wild shoreline. Our guests are welcome to bring their own boats as well, or to rent a pontoon or fishing boat from us for full access to the glistening lake dotted with dozens of islands.
