The lodge and cabins here are beautiful. The "campus" consists of a lodge/restaurant, conference center, spa building, and a number of cabins. Nearby and part of the same "campus" are the movie theater (seats 330) and Three Creeks Brewing Company. The cabins at the back of the property look directly out into National Forest property, and at night the only sounds you hear are the frogs in the pond and the wind in the pine trees. Mixed wildflowers grow along the small stream/pond in the center of the property.
Inside the cabin, a wall switch gets the fireplace glowing, and above the fireplace a 42" plasma screen TV is available for movies. I found the wood/leather chairs plus matching ottoman comfortable. Beds were spacious and comfortable as well, loaded with plenty of pillows. The same luxurious robes found in the on-site spa are available in the room.
The bathroom is a mixed bag, as a previous reviewer commented. The stone and granite complements the rest of the cabin's decor, and lots of countertop space is provided for toiletries, along with plenty of thick plush towels. Water, heated by tankless technology, quickly gets and stays hot. The shower is a large stone enclosure without glass or curtain. It's definitely spacious, but having a place to hang a wash cloth or have a towel easily nearby would be nice. It can be a bit chilly, especially when stepping back onto the stone floor.
Haven't tried the tub yet, but it fills from a "spout" in the ceiling - thus the "waterfall" effect. After turning it on to check it out, the appeal doesn't really hit me either. It's a novel way to fill a tub, but most people would rather have a soaking tub with massage jets or other "comfort" features and forego the drama of how the tub itself is filled up.
Breakfast, which is complementary, is a little too healthy for me also. It's a cold buffet array consisting of fresh fruit (canteloupe, watermelon, pineapple), two types of scone (one was chocolate chip ... both were rather dry - probably because they're good for you), some cereals, hard boiled eggs, juices and coffee. It's enough to get you started and then leave you room for an early lunch.
Service throughout the facility was very good. The spa is a beautiful place and the massage is well-worth the time and money. Specify whether you prefer a male or female therapist to avoid surprises. As a guest staying at the resort, you'll receive a complementary 8-oz bottle of lotion as well.
The town is an easy walk or 3 minute drive, and has a number of fine jewelry stores (The Jewel is awesome), galleries, shops, and restaurants. In the distance the Three Sisters mountains are snowcapped beauty. Easy drives take you to beautiful hiking areas. Pack a picnic lunch (premade sandwiches available in some markets in town) and cold drinks to make the most of your hiking trip.
I can't wait to come back, and will definitely stay here again.
