AWESOME - Other than the incredible winds that blew one night while we there - this place is a true jewel. The views, the service, the lodging, the food.- you could not ask for anything better than this place.
We stayed two nights at the first of September 2011 and wish we could have stayed longer. David, the ranger, was incredible. His enthusiasm and excitement were great to experience - in addition to his ability to find the animals. Incredible knowledge of every living thing on the property.
The staff was wonderful. From the wake up "call" (coffee brought to your tent!) to the turn down service - everything was impeccable.
I loved this place and will always treasure it in my memory. THANK YOU!!
