    Nice view
    Loved the view and balcony. Bathroom cramped, jets in bathtub didn't work. A mouse very quietly nibbled on a wrapped muffin we had on the desk, we discovered the crumbs the next morning. Half price apps in the restaurant Tuesday and Thursday. HPWC for Teslas and regular EV charging station available for guests.

    Log cabins and lodges in the forest.
    Nice location for the wedding we attended.

    Very underwhelming and overpriced.
    When we booked the bungalow room, it stated the room was recently renovated and the pictures show a nice clean room. When we arrived at our room, this couldn't be further from the truth. Our room had spider webs all over the place, the floor was not swept or vacuumed, there was food stuck to the floor, the mini fridge couldn't even keep milk cool enough to stay fresh, and everything in the room was old except the TV. This was supposed to be a spa room, which was across the street from their spa. Now, the hotel did offer to come and clean the room when I talked to the manager, but by that point, I had my wife and two boys settled in the room already. I asked them not to send anyone since they were napping and they still sent people to the room, waking my one year old who is not a happy camper when woken suddenly by loud knocking on the door. They advertised kids activities, one of which was a camp fire with marshmallows. When we arrived, there was only one person conducting the fire, which would have been fine except there were over 50 people there trying to roast marshmallows with only the 2 skewers that they provided. We had to wait over 30 minutes just to roast one marshmallow and then the story time started so late we ended up missing it. All in all, not worth the money you pay. If you stay here for a cabin in the woods experience, then you will not be disappointed, but if you are looking for something cleaner and more resort like, then this is not the place.

    Very relaxing stay
    This has been one of the nicest hotels that I've stayed in. The bed was soooo comfortable. The rooms were very clean and the atmosphere was outstanding.
