We decided to stay the weekend here recently after our hunting trip. We made a last-minute reservation and arrived late in the evening. Miss Marilyn was the nicest person on the phone and in person. She gave us driving directions and was so pleasant about every aspect of the reservation. We had to call and change our arrival time due to a delay in our journey, but she explained where our key card would be, where to park our camper, etc. We did get there just before closing and were greeted as if we were the first arrivals of the day. It is so wonderful to see that there are still some nice, genuine people left in the world. She explained everything in detail, she was very professional and helpful. That was just the beginning :). We got to the room and it was like heaven....fireplace, comfy couch, hot water on demand system (hot shower was great after being in the woods for several days!), extremely clean room, comfortable bed, beautiful matching lodge decor, cute kitchen with a table, small fridge, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot and all the cookware, dishes and utensils needed to prepare your meals there if you choose not to eat out. We BBQ'd one night on their gas grills - that was great! You can sit outside and enjoy the views in their courtyard or take it back to your room. They have central hot tub, cable tv, wi-fi and movies you can check out. It's quiet and inviting - we didn't want to go home lol. We had such a relaxing visit that we are going back this weekend! Thanks for everything and look forward to seeing you soon.
