I went to the "resort" for a wedding. The grounds are of historic interest (my teenage sons liked them and said they had a "Shining" kind of feel), and the setting is quite beautiful. I saw a number of herons. Otherwise, I have nothing good to say about the place. The room I was put in was NOT CLEAN. It was grimy, with cracks in the walls, bare nails sticking out where there once were pictures, splats of plaster. There was a phone, but it was purely a prop, as there was no connection and wires sticking out of the walls. The rusty tub had a shower at shoulder height. The faucet below the shower leaked, spraying water into a hole in the wall. Every time I used the toilet, I had to take off the lid to fix the plug in the toilet tank. The furniture was beat up--for instance there was just one folding chair that someone had scribbled on with a pen. There was an old TV on the floor. The sheets were gritty. I asked the desk clerk if they could fix the overhead light and porch light, neither of which worked. She said no. There was no bar service throughout the weekend. Walking around the grounds, there were random piles of bricks, lengths of wire. We went into the pool house and there was just old furniture scattered around. The smell indicated that some kind of creature had died somewhere in the building. I simply cannot believe that they have the audacity to charge for this kind of accommodation.
