We came because of a recommendation from a friend who comes here frequently. We decided to take our son here for his fourth birthday; the only thing we can say is "spectacular". From the moment we got there, we knew we weren't in NJ because everyone in PA is extremely polite, well mannered, and.........if you can believe it.........cheerful. We were asked if we would like to take part in the VIP program for returning guests; we agreed, but we forgot to mention our friend who recommended the place to us. We received a bag of cookies, our keys, and directions to our room. The room was lovely, some would claim it is dated, but I claim that it was clean, comfortable, and extremely well prepped for people on a long drive who need a cup of coffee first. The room was very comfortable; all the amenities were appreciated. It was a comfortable, quiet place to stay. We especially enjoyed the heat lamp in the bathroom after our swim in the pool. The pool was clean, highly chlorinated for safety purposes, and there's a hot tub, too. We decided to go to the restaurant on the grounds for dinner, and the kid's buffet was perfect for little guys, but the little guys could choose from all of the buffets if they wanted- no limitations. This was cool because our guy wanted stuff from both buffets. Ordering off the menu was our preference, but I would say those buffets are extremely well prepared, varied and enjoyed by everyone partaking in them. Also, the food we ordered off the menu came in record time- each and every time we came there. Best waffles ever. The waitresses and waiters are the best I've ever come across- anywhere- and this is coming from a guy who took his family to the Palace Hotel in NYC for Thanksgiving weekend. Is there something in the water here? EVERYONE is so friendly and polite. We also pre-ordered a birthday cake for our son from their bakery. The cake was exceptional- so lite- like a Twinkie without the preservatives. We picked it up and brought it to the restaurant where they prepared the candles for his surprise. All the waiters/waitresses came to sing. This was just lovely. Back to the buffet- this food is hearty midwestern style food so I would pace myself if I were to eat it. Desserts were great too; the Shoofly Pie was the best I've ever eaten; it was also my first piece ever. I just loved this restaurant; kudos to all who work there. We had to leave early on the day of our departure, but you can just leave the keys in the drop off at the office. Who wouldn't want to come back? This is what service is all about.
