The river and the surrounding grounds are gorgeous and the property is fairly well maintained but I get the feeling that this is a work in progress. We stayed in one of the inn rooms with a view on the river that couldn't have been better and our private balcony was large and cosy. Other aspects of the room were... More

I don't remember where we booked this stay but when we booked a 'cottage' we didn't realize it was a cottage divided into four 'hotel' type rooms. The room was okay in size with a very small bath. The towels were small and thin. The room was clean but didn't smell great. After checking in we went canoeing. The location... More

We had the king suite on the 2nd floor. It has a fireplace, refrigerator, and air jet tub in the room. Also has two older but comfortable arm chairs and a coffee table.

Beautiful setting in the middle of nowhere. Very peaceful, pretty views, staff were very nice but the place is getting run down. Bathroom functional but old. Bathroom door didn't close fully, screen door on slider to deck was bent, and door to room needed to be pulled hard to shut. We found it open when we arrived and after we... More

Tired rooms, tired public areas and tired staff! This place has clearly seen better days and needs a good shake up unless it is destined for the bottom of the coach party to hell. Such great potential in such a beautiful setting.
