I am halfway through my trip & I keep and I'm pretty disappointed.
Upon arrival (although it was 9pm) - we were basically given keys and a map. We had to park along the very tiptop of the hill, no assistance was offered for luggage. I not sure how a senior or a small female like myself is expected expected to lug everything in by themselves. We have continued to have to park at the top of the incline because there is never any other parking.
The restaurant: hours are 7:30am-10pm, therefore upon arrival we were forced to go down to Main Street to eat by the tip we unloaded everything and finally got to our room.
The bistro- Food was excellent, I must say! But there were only 2 poor servers running around. I felt very sorry for them! It took nearly 15mins to get a drink, and we waited at least 50mins for the second. I'm assuming they were short staffed.
Unfortunalty there is no room service after restuarant hours. This morning we have booked a fishing excursion - but... We will not be able to enjoy any breakfast because the restuarant opens at 7:30 & the excursion begins at 8.
There is no place to purchase snacks.
Room and facilities are outdated but still charming.
The view is gorgeous, but is across the street. The actual lake area with the beach, kayaks etc is much smaller than I had anticipated - but is nice.
With all of the walking and lack of food/service, I have been pretty disappointed. I rarely post, but after traveling so far I couldn't help myself! I had to share!
