This was a nice mini vacation for the husband and I. All balcony’s were closed due to structural damage. So don’t expect to have a balcony anytime soon. Carpet in room was dirt and the carpet in the back elevator to the pool smelt horrendous. I think the lodge should get rid of all the carpet in all the area and the lodge would have a cleaner look. We enjoyed the pond area with the pedal boats, lounging in the hot tub/ pool and Carvers steak house( which is only opened Friday to Sundays. I wish there was more food option offered in the evening. We found our selves ordering from Trax about every evening.
