Hotel is very pricey. Yes, it’s clean, but expensive. There’s nothing included in the price such as breakfast. Breakfast would have been nice for the price I’m paying. Also, there’s barely any restaurants open on site during the summer. It’s such a bummer. I wish...More

Wisp resort rooms and overall facility is on par with an average budget motel like a Days Inn, except that prices are way higher and no breakfast included. We were very disappointed with our room. The bathroom area is very basic and small. There's a...More

We stayed here for a family reunion and had a nice time. The room was a nice size - king bed in one room and pullout couch in another. It wasn’t luxurious, but nice enough. The property has some cool amenities like ropes course, Segway...More

At the advice of a relative we tried the mountain coasters at Wisp. What an absolute hoot! You control how fast or slow you go - I would advise going flat out and enjoying the ride! You are on your own personal 'roller coaster' cart...More

Seriously fun ride, since you can control your own speed. Just wish you could get more than one ride for that price.

Mountain coaster was so much fun. Must do it twice. First time down was a practice run, second time wide open.

For such a short ride, $14.00 is ridiculous. The price should be closer to $5.00. Although the ride is smooth and fun, it's ultimately not worth it.

I don't think so. It's right next to the lake, but the only "beach" area at the lake is in the state park, which is a couple of miles away. I did not see a swimming pool.
