The Hedges is an absolutely beautiful property with many beautiful flowers/plants/sitting areas, outside and in. The rustic lodges really have an old fashioned great camp "feel", and it's a wonderful place to uplug, rest and recharge. You can't beat Blue Mountain Lake for gorgeous views!
First of all, good luck getting in! The Hedges welcome back the same families year after year, who like to stay in the same cabins/rooms year after year, and it doesn't matter how early YOU personally get your application in, chances are, if it's prime summer tourist time, you will NOT get in. The Hedges doesn't seem to care about turn over, or "new blood"....though I can understand counting on a perceived guaranteed income. Reservations are definitely NOT first come, first served, though they will put you on a wait list if you don't mind being left in limbo until you hear from them months later.
Secondly....be advised that each additional child you add (6 and older) is $75/day...FOR EACH CHILD! I have three children, and would have paid $75 total for all three combined....but I can't see how they justify that charge! Even considering breakfast/dinner/linens and boat rentals...the cost is simply too high! All three of my kids combined would not eat $75 worth of food a day, (let alone $225...which for a full week totals to over $1000)!
If you are lucky enough to get in, and lucky enough to justify the extra daily fee per child, then The Hedges will not disappoint....it's too bad that (it seems as though) families with children are discouraged (even though they will point out all the Children's activities and programs available).
It's too bad...we would have really liked to have stayed!
