We are also here at PSR this week, Aug 3 - 10, 2014. We love it. Yes there have been changes to the dining room menu, fewer entrees, the appetizers are gone, and there is a nightly buffet, but the food has been very tasty and perhaps better quality than last year. Service in the dining room has been excellent, and with fewer people ordering from a large selection of entrees, everyone gets served faster and can dine more quickly, if desired.
Now some rooms are dated, but we have stayed in 3 different rooms over our four years here, and the reinvestment has been significant. We are in the newly renovated Hillside room and it is brand new, very spacious, and is outfitted nicely.
Yes, rooms are hard to get, because people like us want to come back every year and reserve them before we leave. And this week there are some large family reunions who like to eat and play at the same time, so the rest of us need to be a little flexible, but hey, we are on vacation, so why not.
The grounds are beautified with flowers and plants, as an opening statement of welcome.
The staff and other guests are as friendly as ever, the lake is just as beautiful and there is plenty to do or not. If this is not the place for you, and you prefer more modern accommodations or fancier meals, than this just might not be the right match for you. But that's no reason to badmouth this wonderful resort run by people who have treating their guest like family for over 60 years.
Try it out for yourselves!!!
