Although the resort advertises that it is rustic and that patrons should not expect luxury, I believe that this is misleading. The place is just plain shabby and in need of updating. The physical location is lovely sitting on top of a mountain. But there is a tremendous amount of deferred maintenance that is in need of occuring. Our dishwasher was not bolted down, countertops had burn marks, pieces inside the old refrigerator were broken, wood steps leading to the upper levels were so water saturated as to be of concern for breakage. The entrance to the resort was falling apart. We stayed two nights and left preferring to pay the money to stay in other hotels. The one nice note was the staff who were lovely.
