We stayed one night and had a pontoon rental for a day. The staff was so helpful. The grounds and buildings were immaculate and lovely. Had a wonderful time. Only down side is there is no restaurant on the property and the closest place to eat is a 5 mile drive. There is a small store in the office with limited food choices.
