We visited Breitenbush as a family and were completely impressed by the attentive staff, the exceptional food, and the well-maintained hot tubs, natural pools and lodge. We've been there before, and they have never been so together and attentive as they are now. These people...More

I have the best experience about this place!!! Everything is so open minded and relaxing, we didn’t want to leave! Try to arrive as early as you can because you cannot get enough of this place. Don’t forget clothes is optional in the pools!!!

We just went this week and there was snow on the road leading up to the resort. We brought chains just in case but didn't have to use them. We had a four wheel drive sedan and were just fine.
