They found it with a concerted effort by the entire staff. Beautiful facility with lots of family friendly things to do. The pizza was good and it was fun eating at the outside food trucks.
We enjoyed our time at the lake with the paddle boards and water tricycle. We will go back for sure! The location was great near the lake and not far from other attractions. Clean updated rooms and decent beds. Liked that you took the towels to the laundry and they gave fresh ones back it gives a sense of privacy in the room with no one going in for them. The free water sports was a nice bonus and a nice change from just swimming. Parking Pools Cost. Being on lake. All the amenities at the lake were great! Too costly to dine. Food trucks too expensive.
And staff at pizza world were not friendly. Also serienity pool for adults had too many kids in it no good! Location to lake. Everyone was friendly and kind. The room was not the one I expected when I booked it online. It was their hotel and not a resort room. Too expensive for a cramped room with no kitchenette. It was more like camping than a resort. We missed the towel times and had to do without towels because we got back later than 4.
The office did let us pick up some after hours the next day. One thing I wish they would have is pool towels. The beds were comfortable and the kids enjoyed the swimming pools and hot tub. Couch in condo. Oasis pool. We went fishing, enjoyed the pool and went Branson show. Having to wear a wristband. More options for breakfast. All the fun activities for kids. The pool and the shuttle. A lot of fun and plenty for the family to do. Great staff very nice facilities. Food prices were high in the food trucks. Cozy quiet place.
The staff was wonderful and the marina employees were fantastic. Room was clean and was great having a washer and dryer in the room.

Hannah's family's situation is described at the beginning, but we never hear anything about their problems again - I would have liked to see, at least in the end, whether anything changed for them. I'm split on what to say about the plot. I liked how mysterious and creepy it is, and that's what kept me turning the pages.
The resolution, though, I didn't like at all. It's hard to talk about this without spoiling it for anyone, but I think a lot of the clues don't make sense with that ending, and the ending is just very weird and unrealistic. What does the town not being on a map have to do with Colin going crazy? And what was the whole thing with the house looking like some has been living there supposed to mean? Was that supposed to be because Colin's family came there for one year longer than Colin remembered? That just doesn't make any sense. The creepiness at Colin's house before they leave doesn't make sense either with this ending.
What's happening with Colin is just really, really weird. I knew it was going to have something to do with Jack - how it was mentioned in the first chapter that Colin has a dead brother and then never referred to again made it pretty obvious. I think the explanations are a little too simple, and I didn't like how the characters handle the secret they find out about it. I would have liked to see some kind of confrontation, to read about some lasting effect that this trip and revelation had on Colin's family and Hannah.
If you're looking for a creepy atmospere and thrilling story, you should give Still Waters a try. If you're looking for more than that, though - good writing and characters, a solution to the mystery that actually works with the clues the author gives readers, and a deeper look at what the secrets the characters find out about really mean, I don't particularly recommend Still Waters. Asides from the creepy atmosphere, I couldn't really enjoy this book.
Don't want to put them through torture. Just charming. I have never read a book and wasn't able to finish it. Thats saying something. The things that bugged me. Her decitions are completly irrational and if that was the authors intention, I am sorry to say that they have failed. I could not distingwish the difference beetween the crappy heroin and one with issues. It didnt just cut it for me. Not caring that she upset so many people--her mom, Daniel her br Charming.
Not caring that she upset so many people--her mom, Daniel her brother , her best friend, Colin her boyfriend --she continued to lie shamelessly and was relieved that it was easier the more she did it. Not to mention that she was dissapointed when she got to Pine House. I read three pages and had to go back and reread them cause I was like, " Wha? I rely on the words and phrases to give me immages to know whats happening. It was also very rushed on the good parts such as her brother. It was very, VERY long on the parts that wanted to make me quit.
She was attatched. She saw a picture of the house and was like, "Oh, Colin, we have to go there. It's a very pretty house! This could be our last chance to spend time together before you leave to New York!

Isn't it a great idea!? I didn't like that place and I barely remember it. But nooooo, Hannah goes behind everyones back, she doesnt even tell Colin where they are going untill they get there. She even packed his bag!!!! Automatic dump. Oh, and tell your dad her boss that I am on vacation and can't come to work? Although, in this book or to the part that I have read he doesnt do anything violent or threatnening towards Hannah, even apologizes for being mad, she is still irrationally afraid of him when he is mad.
Alarms, anyone? Forever grateful for your death too bad that statement applies only to me. View all 5 comments. Nov 22, Raven rated it did not like it Shelves: books-i-loathe. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I was very disappointed after reading this book. Some have said it reminds them of the "Shinning" which in some elements holds true, but actually all they share in common is an isolated house and something happens to the lead male character.
What this book suffered from the most was believability. Let me explain, for those of you who don't want spoilers I'll still try to respect that but just in case That Hannah really liked photography. This did I was very disappointed after reading this book. This didn't seem like an important element to the story; it should have been with all the time spent on it, but it wasn't. That Hannah actually thought she was going to get away with her lie. She obviously wasn't going to bring home tons of cash like she promised. She supposed to be a loving, caring daughter.
I understand that she wanted to get away from it all with her boyfriend, but that lie was horrible and there was no way that she wasn't going to have to tell the truth later. That after Colin found out where they were going and he really didn't want to that he still went and after seeing his discomfort supposed loving girlfriend Hannah still pushed him to go there and not somewhere else. There was still running water in the house.
That they would eat expired food and not get sick.

Why didn't they bring their own food? All that stuff about Jack. That Jack was real now that would have made for a cool plot twist. That Hannah didn't try running away but wait you say, she did. Yeah and didn't realize whose vehicle she was getting into? Is Hannah supposed to be dumb?
The Ending. The whole abrupt thing, didn't believe, didn't buy it, didn't like it. Now you might think some of the things I didn't believe about the book were stupid. Obviously it's a fiction book, but if you start to question on thing,then it all snowballs from there. What also bothered me was the timeline. They left on Friday and were going to be back on Sunday right?
Unless I misread something, they were gone for too many days or maybe based on the fact that the main characters spent so much time sleeping, I got confused. The whole last part of the book was rushed; I'm not sure if more pages would have helped this book, but by the time Colin goes into "Johnny mode" the book was over. And then that ending, ugh the ending!! When I was done I seriously couldn't figure out why I wasted my time reading it.
This book wasn't creepy, just disappointing. Jan 22, Claire rated it it was ok Shelves: short-books , mystery , horror , young-adult. I can't believe this book has actually been published as it is. I've read books before with disappointing endings, or books that use cliff hangers instead of resolving all the plot points, but this book just I'm not even sure what happened to the main plot?? It starts off promisingly creepy and suspensful, I had so many theories in my head of what was going to happen.

A young couple run off for the weekend without telling anyone exactly where they're going, which turns out to be an almost deserted old town which doesn't show up on any maps. Then when they finally get to the abandoned lake house, it seems to have been left in a hurry. There's no electric, barely any phone signal, the main character's boyfriend begins acting strangely after going for a swim in the lake I thought maybe there was going to be something supernatural about the lake, I thought the few inhabitants of the nearby town were going to be in on some sinister plot, I even started thinking about ghosts, time travel, ANY kind of exciting twist, but unfortunately not.
That is basically how the plot resolves itself. The main character somehow gets her boyfriend to a hospital that they hadn't spotted before, and I'm thinking "they're going to hospitalise HER, she's the one who has gone crazy, or they're all out to get her, THIS is the plot twist!! I hope you don't want that to ever be solved and drive her home, where she has a grilled cheese sandwich with her family, goes to bed, gets up the next day and tells her boyfriend she loves him, The End. Really, that's it. It's frustrating because the set up had SO much potential, it could have gone so many great ways, and this is the way it stopped?
I'm so confused. Jan 11, Alexandra rated it really liked it. How about, oh, I don't know, resolving things?! You can't just drop a random insane bomb on me like that and then a few pages later, go ahead and end the book. You just can't. That wasn't an ending. It took you that long to actually have something happen and then you just moved along like it was nothing, and tied things up with a pretty bow and ended it. Were you behind schedule on you Wait Were you behind schedule on your deadline? Was your publisher threatening to drop you? This book, I tell you.
No complaints here, that's just how I like it. I mean there was a time in the book when NOTHING was happening but it was still okay just because the author did a really amazing job of prolonging things and making you think about all the possibilities of what could potentially occur in an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere. I absolutely loved the scenery and the descriptions of all the little odds and ends that came together to make Pine House and the surrounding area terrifying.
Chapter 15 gave me a nightmare. No really. It scared me more than anything I can ever remember reading. It was so vivid in my mind, that later when I went to bed, I had a dream very similar to what happened in the chapter. There are a lot of complaints I can make about Still Waters but Emma Carlson Berne really knows how to conjure up very real, terrifying images. Her writing is very good.
Except for this line: "Colin chewed manfully for a few moments. I just kind of feel gipped. Berne led me on and teased me and got me all amped up and then left me hanging. Much like how Hannah did to Colin throughout most of this book, ohhhhhh. I mean, a house in the middle of nowhere.. View all 3 comments. Apr 20, Alex Bennett added it. I knew when I first read the description of Still Waters that I wanted to read it. Those few paragraphs on the back of the book let me know that Still Waters would be one creepy book, and wow was I right. Still Waters takes a while to actually get scary, and for the majority of the book is a descriptive story of two teenagers on a getaway to a cryptic old cabin.
But eventually, the pace of Still Waters crescendos and is from there on out un-put-down-able. The characters featured in Still Waters were definitely my least favorite part of the book. Colin I just flat-out disliked. Of course, Hannah and Colin being the way that they are made Still Waters what it is, and it definitely would not be the same book with a stronger heroine and a more charming love interest.
Still Waters was a thrilling, creepy book that was enjoyable and might even be giving me nightmares. Feb 29, Karen rated it liked it. So…Still Waters. I had some issues with this one, beginning with Hannah herself. Maybe my parents were just more easygoing than I thought? While it was nice to see some actual parenting in a Y So…Still Waters. While it was nice to see some actual parenting in a YA book, this one just seemed to go crazy far in the opposite direction. And Hanna herself was kind of fussy. So meh, I already was struggling before the book really picked up.
In terms of the action in the book, I did find it to be tense. Not scary, but tense at times. I found the situation with Colin to be kind of convoluted and I would have liked more answers about what, exactly, happened — both in the present and in the past. It was explained, but not to a degree that I would have liked. And at only pages, I felt like the book could have easily been a bit longer and cleared up a few things. I never found a connection to any of the characters and that kind of kept me at arms length, too detached to really care about the characters.
Jul 24, Annmarie Ager rated it it was ok. I have wanted to read this book for a while so I was super pleased to get a copy from my friend at Christmas. This book was only small so I knew it would not take me to long to read so I started the book as soon as I got it. The story starts with you really getting to know Hannah. Hannah is normally a good and honest girl that spends her time helping her mum look after her little brother and being with her boyfriend Colin. Colin is a smart guy that you could see picking any girl he wants but he I have wanted to read this book for a while so I was super pleased to get a copy from my friend at Christmas.
Colin is a smart guy that you could see picking any girl he wants but he sees something in Hannah that makes them a brilliant match. I did find I had points that I struggled for starters there was times I felt that parts of the story are dead there is no real interested. I spent a lot of time wondering when the good stuff would happen It was over half way through when thing really picked up and a series of strange events lead to the books climax and while I really enjoyed this really well thought out last bit of the book there was just too many points over the book that I felt like giving up.
I am glad that I read the book and Hannah was a great character that surprises you at the end but for me I felt more was needed in the book. This book was really not my kind of read but my review is based on me just because I did not like it does not mean you well be the same. Nov 22, Jessica at Book Sake rated it liked it Shelves: young-adult. I love YA thrillers specifically because you know there is always some romance mixed in there. This was no exception to the rule. Hannah and her boyfriend are both pretty starry eyed and they can both ooze with romance at different times. However, Hannah, blinded as she might be, seems not to take notice of this for far too long and goes on to say that everything started on the weird track much later than it actually did.
All the while I sat there and told her she should run…just run…get away…but once she thought about listening to little old me it was of course too late. So more thrills ensue. The ending was along the lines of what I expected but with more depth and reasoning behind it than I had imagined. Berne does have a knack for the thriller and I hope to read more by her soon!
Reviewed by Jessica for Book Sake. Mar 29, Miranda Merrill rated it it was ok. Let me start off by saying that this book to me seem like a poor rip-off of the The Shining. Still Waters is about Hannah who is planning a romantic weekend getaway with her boyfriend Colin in an old family cabin. Once they get there things start to not feel right and Colin begins to become m Let me start off by saying that this book to me seem like a poor rip-off of the The Shining. Once they get there things start to not feel right and Colin begins to become more and more unstable the longer they are there.
Hannah soon discovers things are not as perfect as they seem. The ideas behind it have been done before and have been done much better. The book is a relatively short quick read which was a plus. This story had the potential to be a good book and maybe if it was a bit longer and things were explored a little bit more it could have been a great read. I disliked Hannah instantly. The idea of having a romantic getaway with your boyfriend before he leaves for college is good, but the idea of taking him to a cabin in the middle of no where that he has expressed his hatred for?
Dumb idea. But I kept reading anyway because it was interesting enough and I wanted to see where it went. It was creepy and eerie and just plain weird at some points. I see a lot of people complaining about the ending, but I didn't find any fault in that. My issue is this should have been longer. It's a scant pages and that just doesn't feel like enough for good character developement and definitely not enough for that specific plot.
