My husband were here in September and everything was great. The staff was nice and attentive. The room was great with a nice outdoor porch which we irised for several hours. The breakfast buffet was to die for. The cascade gorge hike was the best thing we had ever done. Our guide was Brian and he made the tour the best we have ever taken. It was really about 2.5 miles long and definitely for moderate to advanced hikers, but there were lots of stops. So educational and fun and a perfect weather day for it. Sam sneads tavern was just OK. We didn't eat in the dining room for dinner as you had to wear a jacket (men) and dress up. They would have to pay us to dress up to eat there. We just loved this place and plan to go here yearly.
