Just had some minor issues with this place. 1) I thought it tacky they charge $15 each for a microwave and fridge per day. This being a resort, they should think of including them in each room and not have an extra charge for them. I guess it's nice they are available but I can't see paying an extra $30 a night for both. Our cooler worked great, though. 2) The carpets throughout really need some deep cleaning or replacing. I noticed this everywhere. 3) Our room had not been dusted before we got there. The rest of the room seemed clean.
Aside from that, we had a very enjoyable Labor Day weekend and plan on returning. There are lots of outdoor activities, and most rentals are reasonably priced. I read complaints about the front desk staff being rude, but all staff we encountered were very pleasant. We ate at Signatures both nights and the food was good. The pool was a nice backup plan because it rained on and off, but it is definitely not a big pool. If I was a pool person, this might have bothered me but my husband and daughter didn't seem to mind. The exercise room is also small (two treadmills, one bike and one eliptical) but I only saw people in there once so it may not get used much. I did use it and the treadmills are very smooth although the programming on them is a bit annoying so I just used the manual program. The eliptical and bike were not working and had no signage indicating such.
The nightly firepit is a nice touch. They sell s'mores kits at the front desk and my graham crackers were stale and they only give two marshmallows for an entire Hershey bar and were $3.50 for the kit. I'll bring my own stuff next time. They had fireworks across the lake for the holiday which were brief, but a pleasant surprise. We got a Lakeside room and had the perfect view. We were able to bring our own kayak's without issue which is good they didn't charge something for that. We were going to play nine holes on the course but unfortunately between the rain and lack of appropriate attire, we had to cancel. We are in that area monthly and plan on stopping there to play in the next few weeks. Overall it's a really great setting with a lot going for it. Next time we go, we would like to spend an extra night or two so that we can take advantage of more that it has to offer (hiking, biking, etc.)
