We checked in around 7pm. The reseptionist was not friendly or welcoming. Our room was an up hill distance from the parking area. The room was ok. The bathroom had missing tile. Not something you would expect when paying $300 a night. The spa tub was outside on a deck that had no view of any kind because it was... More

The only bad thing was honestly the shower head in our room! Not good water pressure, super dated and had black mold and mildew covering it! Gross! The food and drinks were great. Loved the pool area except the bottom of the pool definitely needs to be redone.

I have stayed here multiple times and everytime has been wonderful. The beds are comfortable, the staff is helpful. The in-room hot tubs are great. This is a great place to getaway for a night or a weekend!

My husband and I just stayed 2 nights at the resort for our 15th wedding anniversary. The room was basic, but comfortable, nothing fancy, but had a nice size balcony with the hot tub. The hot tub was very relaxing and the water magically relaxed and rejuvenated us. My only complaint is the strong sulfur smell from the water. I... More

Our "girlfriend weekend" stay was very relaxing. The bike ride on the Bob Jones Trail was breathtaking, the hike up the mountain behind Sycamore Springs was exhilarating, and best of all, the massage was exquisite!!! Oh, yes, and the spa tub soaking was most relaxing. Thank you for acquiring all the amenities one needs to leave well rested.

I was offered a newly renovated room during booking for about $50 more a night. I passed because I was assured the rooms were still very nice. Upon checking in, I could see why renovations were necessary. The following items were things I immediately noticed: the air conditioner didn't work, the vents were closed, when I opened them, dust went... More

We loved the room it was was a excellent stay but when we got to the room the ice bucket was dirty it had some kind of stems inside it and obviously wasn't checked by house keeping and there was only one roll of tp. We called up front and both issues were taking care of promptly.

I made a last minute booking for 2 nights. The staff accommodated my request and made sure I had 2 beds prior to arriving despite having booked from a third party with a non-guaranteed bed type. Everyone was helpful at the desk. The bell attendants can smile a bit more though - I wanted to ask them a question but... More

We purchased the King Suite at an auction for a charity. We had never heard of this resort and this was a great excuse to go away for a wine tasting weekend. We were very impressed with the king suite in the nature preserve. It was secluded and quiet. The separate living room with fireplace, high ceilings, wine refrigerator, etc.... More

Terrible customer service, poor communication skills, and very misleading. My father in law booked a room for myself and my husband to stay during our wedding weekend. This was his gift to us. He purchased the room online , paid with his credit card , printed a receipt for me and one for himself. Upon checking in I was asked... More
