The property was beautiful. Flowers in full bloom. The lake and walking path was great. I wish I could give this place five stars, but I cannot. The most I can give it is three. They have a staff shortage which is unfortunate, but for the price of our stay I would’ve thought they could hire more. The restaurant could not accommodate more than a few tables at a time. Reservation times were booked solid for any normal dinner times, between six and eight. The food was nothing special at all.My salmon was unfavorable and not done in the middle, the others at the table agreed, It all needed to be seasoned. With that being said the employees seem to be overwhelmed at times but still were cheerful. We stayed at the Inn, which is for adults only. I was under the impression that it would be away from the lodge and by itself. It is not. It is connected to the lodge and just has its own entrance. It was a bit confusing the way the front desk told us to walk in but we finally figured it out. The room was OK, but if you were to have breakfast in that room you would’ve had to of eaten it in bed because there is no table and chairs.The bed was hard. They need to put on either mattress pads or get new sets. We didn’t sleep at all. They give you a bottle of wine,cheese and crackers, which was nice.In their little lobby area was coffee and a little refrigerator with ice cream and pop in it. I booked the room for a special occasion, would I do it again, no.
