Relaxing, beautiful Resort. The rooms and surroundings were lovely and serene. Cozy fireplaces to sit around inside and outside, and activities daily. If you plan to stay over the weekend, though, be advised that they have a lot of weddings and gatherings scheduled, and it is quite crowded!

The resort is beautiful on the outside, kinda old inside. It needs to be remodeled. The room we stayed in had terrible wi-fi and because the room was on the lower floor we had spiders! so be prepared for uninvited guests.

There was also not any food or drink available for children. The location was lovely and the staff was helpful, I would recommend this hotel for adults but not... More

We stayed one night at the resort on the second floor. The room was nice, comfortable and clean with a view of the lake and mountains. The lake was actually very small.
