A beautiful hotel with all the extras. Our balcony bedroom was beautiful decorated and very comfortable. Everything you would expect in a five star hotel. There are many activities available and would be a great spot for a wedding, etc. The restaurant's are pricey for the quality food. I ordered a Ceasaer's Salad and it was basically rolled up romaine... More

This review is for the restaurant only. Easter buffet was truly amazing. A feast for the eyes as well as the pallet. Selections varied, generous, and well stocked. Berries, brie, and salads fresh. Sauces flavorful and to the point. The usual meat carving stations (plural) that included lamb. Eggs, pancakes, waffles to order. Vegetables grilled to die for. Parsnips my... More

Beautiful property, especially if one appreciates sailing and golf. Staff is friendly and helpful. We went for a work event. Our 2 queen bed room was well decorated, but no bigger than an average hotel room. There was a nice balcony with views of a bamboo stand and the water. It would have been more enjoyable if in addition to... More

I can see you had a good time and I appreciate the feedback, a missing table is easy to rectify, but where did it go? maybe we should be a bit more careful announcing bar closure so as not to miss anyone. We appreciate feedback and every guest receives communication from me asking for feedback which is a critical tool... More

Family loved this property! Felt like trip back to the 50's. S'mores around a fire, boating, golf, biking, dining....all had a feel of yesteryear. Our room was spacious and the amenities kept my family occupied all weekend. Highly recommend.

We just got married and arrived at the Inn the next day. From the start you could tell the staff was friendly and caring. Earl was a big help. All the staff was great, Faye in the dining room was gracious and kind. We wanted to go on the cruise but initially we were too early in the season. However... More

The Tides is lovely -- our suite and view were really nice, staff very friendly, breakfast was nice and quick -- but unfortunately the weather was cold, gray and wet, so we didn't get to take advantage of all the outdoor amenities of the resort. We'll have to return when the weather is warm so that we can go on... More

Beautiful facility, thoughtful helpful staff, wonderful food - really magical pillows. Highlight was the green smoothie delivered to the room at 7am!!! Personal outreach by the GM shows that guest attention is the priority throughout the ranks. Loved it thru and thru.

Stayed here ove Easter. The view from our room was wonderful. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. We had Sunday brunch at the restaurant and everything was delicious...quite a variety. Everywhere on the property, the views are spectacular. We had a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire on the patio overlooking the river. Service was... More

Thank you for your review, I am delighted you had such a good stay with us. I noted your comment on flying and indeed we have a number of guests who choose to fly down to Hummel airport. It is a quiet, easy to use facility and about a ten minute drive from the Tides, we can pick up and... More

A very inviting environment! The staff was courteous, helpful and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The property has an excellent, scenic location with a ton of traditional and unique (Frisbee golf) activities available. However you decide to spend your time you can't help but relax. The restaurant is top notch - we ate every... More

Thank you for your feedback. It seems you were here for a meeting and we take pride in offering facilities for groups from 10 to maybe a complete takeover of the property. We always try to balance the needs of our business and leisure guests but in all honesty everyone seems to have such a good time it is sometimes... More
