We stayed one night during Easter Weekend. Our room was great - we enjoyed the pools, waterslide and whirlpools as well as the indoor mini golf and arcade. We had Easter Brunch at the Lodge and the food was delicious - so many choices and so plentiful. We'll be back!

My Husband and I used to bring our sons up here every year for the Easter weekend. I now take my granddaughters. They have a blast, the water slides are so much fun that they run up the steps so they can go down again. The staff is extremely polite and very helpful. They always have smiles on their faces....
