I recently traveled up to Sycamore Mineral Springs for a friend's wedding. Here are a few thoughts:
Positives - 1. Beautiful location. 2. Great hiking trail. 3. Very quiet even though it was booked solid.
Negatives - 1. Too many "extra" fees - over $100 worth of spa/resort fees that aren't included in the "per night" quote they give you when you book the room. 2. When I arrived, the only restaurant/bar they have was closed, and the receptionist gave me a blank stare and said she didn't know anywhere when I asked her to direct me to another nearby restaurant - I mean, really?? Ridiculous. 3. Terrible parking - people who aren't guests of the hotel must take all the spots during the day, since it wasn't even half full at night.
Overall I had a great time, but it was over-priced. So unless you really want a hot tub on your private porch, you can find more affordable places nearby that still have access to the beautiful hiking trails and beach.
