We put our son and his significant other up there as we were unable to get another room where we were staying on short notice. They absolutely loved it. Beautiful accommodations and a wonderful staff.

Beautiful location overlooking the Mississippi with great views. Very large restaurant with outdoor patio. The long "slide" down the hill looked challenging. Opted for a ride on the chair lift instead. River cruise available. Very scenic.

We had cocktails on the restaurant deck as the sun went down. Very pretty. We watched people have fun on the slide and the bungee swing ride. Looks like a great place to bring kids. The drive up here was extremely beautiful.

We had a blast here riding the Alpine slide, playing putt-putt, and riding the lift. My husband and I enjoyed a craft beer while taking in a beautiful view as the kids ride the Alpine slide for a second time. The resort is perched overlooking...More

In general, yes. They'll welcome pets into the rooms, but I'm not certain you'd want them in the dining room (unless they're service dogs) or the bar area.
