Great food. We had the beef tip appetizer which was enough for 2 to share. Just enough spice to keep you going back for more. Excellent. A must try. Ok service. Friendly staff. Pricey to stay. Stay and play is a good deal for just about anyone.

We did not stay here. Rather we brought the kids to the waterpark that is open to the public. It was too hot and humid for little babies so we came here and the kids loved it. There were friendly lifeguards and staff on duty. We really enjoyed it.

Stayed here for a wedding in July 2016. The first impression was OK. The lobby is nice. The water park is kind of poor in that the lighting was bad and it looks kind of dated. Also, the staff of the waterpark didn't seem to be very attentive. Our room was the Lodge Suite. It was way smaller than what... More

Thank you Tony for your review of our facility. We do have a very "lodgey" feel to our facility with the lobby area and all of the rooms having log furniture. I am sorry if the outside didn't meet your expectations. We do have shops and restaurants around us but we also provide a playground area, zip line and other... More

We were there during what was a sold out week. (We were there with a group and were unable to have others get rooms due to being told it was sold out.) Knowing it was sold out, it didn't seem like they had bothered to adequately staff the hotel. When we arrived at breakfast, there was barely any food available... More

This place was great! I loved it! We never made it to the restaurant or waterpark, but the room was perfect. I love the patios too! Comfortable beds, nice hot tub, clean room. It was a quiet hotel for having waterslides.

I have to say I really wanted to like our stay more. At first glance walking in to the lobby I was impressed with the look and style. But some of the operations of the facility were lacking. The lodge seems to have a problem with seasonal staffing. On days that occupancy was high things were let go. The dining... More

Thank you Gary for taking the time to let us know how we are doing and where we need to improve.
