The resort is really great with spectacular views and very quaint! I went there last weekend and stayed in the Matia. This cabin was fairly new had a 2 person hot tub. It was small but nice. The scenery is really great and we lucked out with perfect weather all weekend!
This weekend we decided to go back and stay at the Baker House for some more room and we were right on the beach. Well, the place needs some MAJOR updating but it was good with a huge window overlooking the ocean.
I honestly would have given this place all 5 star reviews but our weekend was ruined by a group of people that pretty much dominated the whole resort! They were loud and had no respect for anyone else there nor did they care if anyone else enjoyed themselves! We came there to relax but this group was always directly in front of our house so we had NO peace and quiet nor could we enjoy the tranquility of the water! The first night this group decided to run around the resort naked at 1am with yelling and laughing that woke us up.
There was only one couple with 2 kids this weekend and they obviously wanted to play in the rec room which was equipped with fooze (sp) ball, ping pong, etc...well, it started sprinkling outside so that whole group (8-10 ppl) went in the rec room. The kids and their parents tried to go in there but that group was so loud and obnoxious and playing on the games that the kids had to leave!!! That was so sad seeing one if the little boys walking out if there with this sad face!! I was really taken aback that those people didn't see the kids and let them play!!
Then that night, we had to endure them
Partying at their house!! It was raining so the group stayed indoors but opened their windows so the rest of the guests had to listen to them partying!!! We were the "lucky" ones that were right beside them so, needless to say, our weekend was ruined and after paying nearly $200 a night and being kept up both nights, I am very disappointed!
We would have been frequent visitors there but after this weekend, I very much doubt it!
I have to mention the manager, Holly. Although nothing was done about that group, she is a non stop working machine!!! She was there both weekends and she does everything!! She runs the office, heats the sauna, hears the Dutch tub, prepares all the cabins for people's arrivals, gets wood for fire pit, takes boats out for people that want to get on the water, checks all hot tubs and does it all very professionally without ever interrupting your visit or annoying you! She is really super woman and I hope her boss knows what an amazing job she does!!!
I hate that we will not be coming back but after a weekend of not being able to relax and enjoy ourselves because of a group that was so rude & loud but they should have been kicked out after the first night! I definitely wouldn't have expected Holly to do it but the owner should have!!!
