Beautiful place. Loved it. Food is very limited as to choice. Same menu everywhere. Breakfast was not good but all the other meals were good but one runs out of choices. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast staff was inflexible.

The fees were extremely high given there is no housekeeping unless pay for addl charge. The rooms needed more attention- dust bunnies, crumbs, leftover chips in a chair on back porch. Very worn rugs need replacing, took away from the gorgeous rooms and floors. Location was great and staff was friendly. Garbage chutes too small for bags provided- had to unload trash by hand. Provide smaller bags and just include a couple extra. If these things were fixed I would feel better about the nightly charges. Oh but beds are hard!! :(

I will return again and again. Never a bad experience at this beautiful location. In Room Dining was great! Only suggestion would be to add internet TV but we used Apple Mirroring and it worked fine! Awesome place!

Had to start telework due to the new spike in infections, and wanted to visit someplace relatively safe AND relaxing! Thrilled to find the The Henderson’s takes health precautions seriously. 100% of the staff (to include senior management) wear masks. Even during the off season, they have a team of folks disinfecting everywhere. On top of that, the wifi is super fast and strong everywhere (including the hot tub)! If you are going stir crazy with being locked in, and you want to get away while still staying productive, hit The Henderson!

My wife and I stayed at the Henderson for our honeymoon - we heard about it from family, and we are so glad we did. Beautiful location, and all the staff was excellent. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or even just stopping by for lunch or dinner!
