Love the peaceful surroundings in late autumn. The entire facility is clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the private theater, the restaurant (the Stinky Boot), and the hot tubs.
We were very disappointed overall. Check in staff was cordial but not friendly. Forgot to give us needed information and card for parking and catching shuttle. Room was rather dated, but lacked any sound proofing ( running water from other rooms woke us up several times a night as did noise from hallway). Room was not dusted very well.We checked out early even though room was already paid for so we could get a good nights sleep.
The Stinky Boot restaurant/bar was very good.
