My rating is based on the 4th floor suite (10 person) my familly and I stayed in at Chestnut on 21 Aug 15. For the money we paid for our suite, the room was such a disappointment. The pull out beds are so old and flimsy, not even two little boys could sleep on them let alone an adult. The... More

My wife and I just spent one night and we really had a good time. We spent a weeknight so the price was good for what we available to us. We spent time in the sauna, the hot tub and the pool (all of which were very well maintained). There is a main Restuarant that serves very good food but... More

I cannot say enough about how enjoyable the entire staff was in helping us make our daughters wedding the best it could possible be. Not to mention the views made for some amazing pictures. One room had the AC broken but it was fixed in a matter of just a few hours. Nice big rooms. Awesome destination wedding venue. We... More

What a pleasurable experience we had at Chestnut Mountain Resort this July. We brought 110 of our friends to the resort for a fundraiser and we plan to secure the entire resort next year. There was much to do and the staff was outstanding. I've worked with many facilities before but this one was attentive and did everything they could... More

We stayed here one night a week ago. The front desk staff was great. The room was not. It was outdated. TV was the box type and it had a green hue to the picture along with static. I understand that most do not spend time in their room while visiting a ski resort however we had a long day... More

We stayed here last weekend for a friends wedding. The resort is located off of Highway 20 on Blackjack Road. Blackjack Rd. is a 8ish mile winding road the leads up past a lot of farms, houses, and a cow pasture where the cows walked in the road- definitely not a road you would want to take at night. Its...

Just completed a mid-week get-a-way package and we were extremely pleased with the stay. After reading some reviews we were a little leery of the resort, but those fears were totally unfounded. ALL of the staff were courteous, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The television was a 36" HD model. Both restaurants were excellent in quality and quantity of... More

My wife stayed at Chestnut during the 'off season' and we were pleasantly surprised with almost everything about this resort. The place has an amazing view of the Mississippi, much better food than either of us would have expected, and ALL of the staff was extremely nice and attentive. That's hard to find these days. There are things to do... More

Stayed there for a night for my husband's race. It is old scool ski resort but gorgeous in the summer. The scenery from the hotel room and the restaurant is gorgeous. Looking at the Mississippi River in the spring with the trees is so relaxing. The pool we perfect. Just enough. Will stay there again for sure! !

We attended a wedding at this location and the best thing that happened this weekend was that they did end up married. That's it. That was the highlight. Upon check in we discovered that not only did we not have any cellular service at this resort (AT&T) but there also was no reliable wifi. There were small moments that if... More
