I didn't want to leave the premises. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The resort had plenty of activities to keep us busy, from the family game room,bowling alley to the swimming pool. The complimentary breakfast was delicious.

A truly wonderful and relaxing experience. The facilities and surrounding landscape are beautiful. The amenities are truly unique (a private ice rink, indoor/outdoor pool and hot tubs, game room/bowling alley etc.) The staff is courteous and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Could not recommend strongly enough.

This has become an annual event for my husband and I and assorted members of our family. This year.....we got to actually see them bring in and decorate the 28' Christmas tree in the main dinning room. It is so large the branches are strong enough to hold real ice skates! I cannot even guess how many THOUSANDS of lights... More

The pool is always one of the most memorable parts of guests stays in the winter with the hot tubs flowing over into the 90 degree pool water outdoors. We look forward to your next visit and wish you many more Happy Anniversaries! Warm regards More
