BED BUG CITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Stayed at The Pines Resort in July 2014. I am a local of the area and know several employees and house keepers that work there. Chalet #259 and #260 and also suite #15 ARE HEAVILY INFESTED WITH BED BUGS!!!! SO bad that the house keepers refuse to go into them! They throw the bedding away after each check out! The owners of The Pines Resort are well aware of the infestations and refuse to get treatment for them!

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding held at the Pines Resort and what a beautiful place for a wedding! The ceremony was held outdoors and the grounds were well kept and made for a perfect location. The reception was held indoors and the room was beautful and all the food (from onsite catering) was delicious. I would recommend this resort as a guest (our room was amazing also) or a beautiful place for a wedding.

We love Bass Lake and the Pines Lodge is just the perfect getaway for a couple or a family! The suite "Rudy's Retreat" is the best room of all. Great view of the lake and the emenities are extraordinary. Can't wait to take time out of our busy schedules to get back to The Pines.

I am sure there are several other rooms infested but, the owners will not even allow professionals to come in and inspect the units. DO NOT STAY AT THIS RESORT!!!!! DO NOT SUBJECT YOUR FAMILIES AND HOMES TO THIS POORLY MAINTAINED PLACE. I am promising to do what ever it takes to make the public known of this situation and force the owners Que and Sun to resolve this issue with professional treatment! BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE!!!!
