Don’t stay in the main building
Old smelly room. Needed to open windows and turned on the heater at night to sleep. The food was awful.

The property itself is OK. Our room was very old. We found blood on one pillow that was replaced and we needed to leave all our windows open at 30 degrees due to a gas smell in the room.

The location and setting make this lodge. We stayed just out of season (end of October), but the pool and hot tub were already drained (I had really been looking forward to using the hot tub under the stars) There was little to no soundproofing in the lodge (the building by the lake), it was like having a herd of gazelles in the room upstairs. The food, while included in the price, is limited, and edible, but not particularly good.
