Stayed in one of the cabins for a wedding and it was beautiful. You can't beat the view! The cabin was cozy and the resort has a calm vibe. Kitchen was decently stocked if you plan on cooking (no storage for leftovers though so bring your own Tupperware or whatever). We had 3 vehicles (2 were trucks) and parking was just fine. Beds were comfy. The rooms don't have ac but even in August, it wasn't a problem. Open your window in the evening and close everything up in the morning. The cabin stayed cool. Even my husband who is always hot, was comfortable.
The restaurant on site is good. Decently priced. You can have a $12 burger or a $36 steak. Service is a bit slow so don't plan on popping in "really quick" for lunch. The staff were all extremely nice and gave us recommendations for hikes and activities. We did Fern lake one morning. Great hike if you want a little challenge! The town isn't far from the resort. All in all, I'd stay here again.
*If you're interested in this as a wedding venue, I highly recommend! Everything from the ceremony site to cocktail hour and reception area was gorgeous! My friend said Erika, the wedding coordinator was a dream to work with. All of the staff were helpful while I was setting up our decorations. Couldn't have asked for better. Pictures are going to be amazing!
We've stayed here in the past and it is one of our favorite locations; but this time it looked a little rundown, not well taken care of. For the price, rooms seemed a little shabby, housekeeping was minimal; you have to go to the bar or the spa to get ice for rooms. staff was not unfriendly but not real friendly either. However, we love the area, and if you don't want to camp, this is a great option/location.
