We stayed for a long weekend wedding in August and had a great time. The staff at checkin was helpful and friendly. We arrived at 7:30 in the evening after flying across the country and were hungry. The dining room closes at 8:30 so, went to our cabin and ran back up to dinner. I have to say the weakest part of the place is the food. The dinner was awful. Several entrees seemed to start with frozen product, the appetizer was deep fried mushrooms and the wine list doesn't even bother to offer any Virginia wines (some of which are good). Breakfast was exactly the same each and every morning. The nearest food options are 20 some minutes away unless you are staying in the cottages and can cook for yourself. The lake is very small these days and not worth the hike to it, other than to see it. The pool is also small, but very comfortable and the kid's pool is great for small children. We saw a half dozen cabins and rooms and each one was in a very different condition. Do not stay in the lodge because each room is a window, bed and not much else. The rest of the cabins are hit or miss. Bring anything you think you will need as there are no wine glasses, wine openers, ironing boards or hair dryers in the rooms. The lack of air conditioning is not a problem because the area cools down nicely at night. I wish the hotel would improve the room and the food to make the property worth the $300 a night rate for cabins.
