I like that the resort is far from people, cars, highways. Is situated in the middle of nothing with lots of trees/forest all around, not a lot of facility, in the pool, outside and inside. Is very peaceful, deer are coming close to be seen. The buildings are not in very good condition, but every time we are there, I can see that the rooms are painted, new carpets, new tiles in the bathrooms, on the wall and on the floor, comfortable beds with nice clean sheets, even TVs are much better then before. I would wish for a refrigerator in the room without request it and much cleaner pool outside but overall we had a good, peaceful, relaxing time at comfortable price.
