Amazing dining, disappointing meal

We ate breakfast here passing through the area. The view is BEYOND OUTSTANDING, but the biscuits & gravy were pathetically lame for a place that takes obvious pride in everything else.

Lovely venue...and amazing views. Due to an unexpected turn of events, we ended up needing a room on a busy Summer Sat. night & these folks were able to accommodate us on very short notice....even providing toothbrushes & toothpaste. Our room was stunning with a Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, private deck & stunning views. We were pleasantly surprised with a reasonable... More

Nice place to stay. Terrible place to eat. Bad food. Rude, untrained staff. It was worse than an overpriced diner on a rural highway.

We came to do some geocaching on a loop near the resort, and we needed to be cooled off afterwards, so my husband and I enjoyed a lunch at the resort. We really loved our sandwich, the french onion soup and our beverages. The french onion soup was absolutely the best we had ever had, and it was loaded with... More

I am so terribly sorry we mucked up the biscuits and gravy. Next time through please be sure to ask for me and we'll make it right. I did speak with Chef and he has already jumped in to see what went wrong. Truly appreciate that you let me know! Warm regards, Brian More

One of the best meals I've had anywhere! Thank goodness we asked for a wine recommendation -- their selection is amazing and they paired our meal perfectly.

We were there for three nights. VIEWS It is difficult to rate this place as the countryside and views are fantastic but the restaurant is very poor! Would definitely consider going there again for the views and location but would take the long drive into Winthrop to ensure edible food. ROOMS The rooms were really quite nice also. There were...

Enjoyed walking in and around the grounds. The pool was clean and water clear- don't often come across that in a place so well used by families!! Dinner 5stars for... More

We visited Sun Mountain Lodge and dined in the dining room many years ago. This time we happened to be in town (Winthrop) so decided to drive up the hill to have a dinner there during our stay. However... Upon arrival, we were told we could not done in the dining room without reservation. So we proceeded to the bar.... More

We ate in the bar instead of the dining room. Breakfast was wonderful every morning and included in our room price.
