I have always wanted to visit this property and kind of wondered what the attraction in southern Missouri could possibly be. Wow! It is a huge property with a variety of room configurations. They have managed to keep the property feeling like a smaller, more intimate property because of the design of placing small "escape" spaces throughout the acreage.
We were in an independent cabin near the Devil's Pool area which is currently under renovation. When making the reservation they made certain that we understood that. The construction was not a problem. Our cabin was paneled in old style knotty pine, old hickory furniture, great bedding, and a native stone wood-buring fireplace. (Fire starters were provided and there is plenty of wood available--replaced daily. The details in the lamps, chandeliers, door hardware, outdoor lighting is incredible. Best we have seen.
Only thing I would change is better lighting for walking back from the restaurant at night. True, they provide shuttle service, but we prefer to walk. Along with better lighting, a separate pedestrian path would be nice.
They are currently working on a number of projects, all of which will simply put this place over the top. Highly recommended for couples and multi-generational families as well as sportspeople. Staff is well trained and helpful.
