First, let me say that this lovely bed and breakfast was exactly what my daughter and I needed for a day and a half of rest and relaxation. In general, we really enjoyed our stay.
There are 14 rooms in the actual bed and breakfast, and we got a look at all of them when we checked in. Every room that we saw was well-appointed and looked comfortable. We stayed in the Wilderness Journey Room. I chose that room because we needed two beds, and it had two twin beds. It was one of the smaller rooms, but it was still very comfortable.
Our room was located upstairs in the main lodge, right off of the game room. This game room had a pool/ping pong table, a satellite television and several tables for playing board games, which they had in a cabinet in the game room. We had a blast in this room, and I can't begin to imagine how much fun it would be for a big group of kids staying at the inn for a family reunion.
Another amenity that we really enjoyed was the swimming pool. It is a very nice pool, and we had it all to ourselves because we stayed on a Sunday and Monday night when the resort was not busy. We also had a great time feeding the miniature donkeys, the buffalo and the horses.
When I booked our stay at the resort, I booked the stimulus package, which included our meals. Having our meals prepared for us is one of the things that made our time at the resort so relaxing. Now is where this review gets a little more difficult to write. Was the food good? The best word that I can use to describe it is "alright." It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. The point that I am really trying to get across is that the meal situation was a little strange. First, let me explain what I liked about the meals. The staff that prepared our meals went above and beyond the call of duty. On our first night there, the staff person was very pregnant, and not only cooked us a great meal of chicken, rice, green beans and salad, but she carried it upstairs to the game room for us because she heard us up there playing games. On our second afternoon, we receiveed a knock on our door, and the staff person told us that they had planned on making us chicken fetttucini for dinner, but had not been able to find what they were looking for to make it. She wanted to know what we would like instead. We told her that we would be fine with something simple like a pizza. The second staff person that we encountered called us down to a dinner of pizza, salad and garlic bread that evening. Don't get me wrong, the pizza was OK - but it was a general prepared pizza that was served on cardboard - not bad - just not great. As we were eating, we had a pleasent conversation with the second staffperson. She asked us what we wanted for breakfast. I told her that I was not picky, but that my daughter did not like eggs, which made pancakes waffles, bagels or french toast better options for us. Sure enough the next morning, we came down to French Toast. She told us that she used her mother's recipe for French Toast . The breakfast was good - probably the best one we had while we were there. As a side note, I had to request coffee both mornings, and was pointed toward a cofee maker filled with mediocre coffee along with a canister of powdered creamer. Again - not horrible, but just not great. I have to say that I was thrilled with the effort and the service that we received from both of the staff people that we encountered. They were wonderful. The thing that seemed so odd about all of this is that anytime that I have stayed in a B&B before, it has been run by people who take great pride in coming up with breakfasts that become standards at that inn. At this resort, it seems as though the staff people are left to figure out how to feed the guests which just seemed really strange to me. To their credit, they did a decent job. However, if this resort wants to take it to the next level, the owner needs to put more effort into preparing foods that stand out a little more, and become a reason to stay at this resort.
Overall, if I lived anywhere near this resort, I would use it EVERY time that needed to plan a family reunion. It is perfect for that. I would also stay here again if I just wanted a place to go to get away from it all for a few days. I do not want my negative comments to take away from the fact that we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. I would recommend this resort.
