This was our third stay in as many years. Just as quaint, cool and romantic as can be. Surrounded by honkin' huge pine trees mixed with Aspen that had amazing leaves which shimmered and fluttered in the breezes. Beautifully-landscaped gardens brimming with flowers, which are getting better each year we come. Enchanting big dark clear blue refreshing swimming pool plus hot tub, with lots of lounge furniture. We loved our swims and found water temps perfect. Conveniently located, clean gas BBQ's with nice picnic tables and swings. Manicured big lawn plus a half-court basketball hoop for the kids to play safely. Quite dog friendly (wish we had brought our dog, instead of paid for dog sitter). One of our fav's: way cool retro stainless steal stoves/ovens with completely furnished kitchenettes that save us money, plus cable on our two remote controlled TV's and a DVD player. Nifty masonry fireplace. Quite friendly, helpful staff and owner. Our suite was again spotlessly clean and impecabbly maintained (no sign of any pet odors or bugs referenced by another reviewer several years ago). This classic old resort has been impecably maintained and upgraded,with TLC to our delight. Highly recommend. We'll certainly be returning next summer and recommending to our friends and family members.
