Very luxurious experience. There was everything we required at Goldfinch Lakeside Manor. We also had cows and sheep come by the house and that was very nice. The kids adored the swimming pool and even though it was a little pricy, it was worth every penny. 

Jordan F.

Luxurious, elegant, and classy! I will come back I recommend everyone to go.

George M.

We went to Goldfinch for a birthday and it was fantastic. We were a group of 22 and there was lots of space and entertainment for all. Would go back.
