About 8 or 9 years ago, a friend of mine and I were going to take our daughters to a local hotel to celebrate their birthdays. To make a long story short...when we got there the pool was closed for renovations. No one notified us and the pool is the draw for the kids, so needless to say we were none to pleased. After calling a few other local places and not finding what we were looking for, we decided to wing it! We drove around trying to find a place to stay. We came upon The Elmwood and the rest is history. We have been going ever since!
Every year, I take my daughter and a bunch of her friends to spend a night at The Elmwood to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We have stayed in a variety of units and each and everyone of them has been neat and clean, kitchens stocked with supplies for us to stay in and cook and there was always a personal touch from the owners. It might have been a guest book or note or coffee on them. This year, there was coffee and at the top of the stairs (we get a 2 bedroom unit,) there was a towel in the shape of a dog holding a silk flower - very cute.
The staff is so helpful, friendly and fun! They go the extra mile and it's nice to be remembered each year when we arrive. They even know how many pool towels we'll need. lol And, speaking of the pool...along with the sauna and shower/bathroom (both newly renovated,) all clean and accessible.
The rates are excellent - well worth it! Also, there are so many things to do in the area and great restaurants, shows and more.
I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the jist. My daughter and her friends and I love The Elmwood - it is something we all look forward to every year.
