The configuration of the Suite feels like a little home. TWO fireplaces are a huge PLUS and there is ample space to move about in and relax.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with group
Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The good: This is a beautiful property. It is gorgeously landscaped and the lodge decor and pool/infinity hot tub are lovely. The nightly fire pits burning real wood, were cozy and lovely and the complimentary s’mores kits were a fun perk. The so-so: rooms are fairly bland and feel slightly cold/sterile. There is a 1990s vibe to the decor. The two different 1BR suites we stayed in were both newly renovated but still felt dated, sadly. The disappointing: the guest-to-staff ratio seemed extremely low for the star-level and price of this property. There were times when we made requests for simple things (plates and silverware, hand towels, etc) and had to wait so long for the requests to be fulfilled that we checked back 30-40 minutes after the first request to inquire about when the requested items would be delivered. Several times, we would call the front desk and it would ring repeatedly and not ever be answered - on two occasions, it was necessary for me to walk 10 minutes to the Lodge in order to get assistance. Cleanliness of property: Abandoned towels and empty plastic glasses left lying on the chairs and ground around the pool and not picked up at any point during our visit to the hot tub. With the overall lack of cleanliness it just felt as if there either wasn’t enough staff or maybe the hotel didn’t place a high priority on it. Staff: The all seemed young and inexperienced which is prob the biggest problem with this visit.
