The location is great but the property lets itself down. Dinner was low quality no better than a fast food chain. Smokers in nearby rooms spoiled our time even though the hotel is supposed to be smoke free. Water pressure was very low.

It was soooo quiet here! At first, I was surprised at how it felt like we were camping even though we were in a lodge. The room seemed a little outdated but I think it was more perfect for the setting. If you like being in the woods, in a very quiet place this is for you! I was pleasantly surprised at how updated the fitness building was. The pool was excellent there! Again, there seemed to be very few others here, even though it's spring break. Makes me wonder if it ever is busy.

The site was lovely and had many walking paths. We did have dinner on Friday night and it was good, hot, and pleasing after a long day of travel. The room smelled musty yet the bathroom looked to be updated recently and was very nice. Wood paneling needs to be cleaned at least once a year to eliminate the musty smell. We have a cottage in WI and I have the walls washed every spring which prevents the smell. An organic cleaner with essential oils in it will do the trick.

We were upgraded to a cabin and it was awesome. We had a small issue with fireplace and they fixed it immediately. It was quiet and so relaxing as it was a slow time at the resort. Will come back again in high season so we can do the beach, etc.
