We went for a Thanksgiving get-away.
Nice overall but the food for the T-Day buffet was mediocre to terrible so we never took advantage of their 2 for $25 dinner special on Friday night. I think we got a free room upgrade as we booked a room with a microwave and mini-fridge but when we checked in it was a full kitchen. The appliances are older but seemed in good condition, microwaved worked but we never turned on the stove to test it and the fridge was slow making ice but there's an ice maker near the vending area anyway.It would've been good to know about the upgrade before as we could've brought some food from home to prepare after our lackluster buffet experience. The room was very nice with a not-too-firm/not-too-soft king sized bed and fireplace (one log included) and great view of the lake/ski run but sadly there was a draft coming through from the broken sliding door. We let them know about the draft and they comped us two logs.
Breakfast was good at the restaurant but a bit overpriced for what it was. My husband had bacon and eggs and I had a unique oatmeal that had berries underneath and was topped with a tasty grapefruit brulee.
November is right between golf and ski season so there's really nothing to do at the resort (which we figured as we went away just to get out of town and be close to Short's Brewery nearby) and I was surprised that there were not trails/trail maps for the resort as there are plenty of paths for the golf carts. As the indoor pool was down for maintenance and there were no other activities I thought it was a bit cheeky to charge us the resort fee but $8 a weekday and $15 a weekend day isn't too steep.
