I give this place a 3.5 out of 5. Staff great a as is location, however, bar is poor due to food and allowing kids to roam about up to 10pm. Dining hall has great view but no menus...only buffet. Rooms are Spartan and delay need an upgrade. I found bed hard and uncomfortable.

WOW! We'll be back. Great facility, great setting, great people, great food, great experience. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and relaxed. Check-in was quick and informative. We had a fantastic dinner (34th anniversary) in the dining room, which also has a pretty good wine list. The views from the main lodge and from our room were stunning.

The lodge needs upgrading and the buffet dinners were terrible with cold food and not enough of each item. The plates were always empty and you had to ask for new plates to be brought from the kitchen.

Loved the resort. I had three meals in the pub and I was disappointed with each meal. The breakfast buffet was very good but the quality of the meals from the pub was below average. I would go off site next time to eat versus eating at the pub.

charge only those who are freeloading the shuttle service and treat your reservation/ registered guests (dinner or over night) at either resort with free shuttle service. Make your meal choices more affordable to everyone with more selections

Large unattended dog in adjacent room barking loudly and frequently. Front desk advised but situation did not change. A truly beautiful location, unfortunately front desk personal did nothing to address concerns over unattended pet other than to offer an apology.
