After looking at the website and reading the reviews, my husband and I were looking forward to an exclusive, classy resort. When we arrived the staff were friendly and we were impressed with the lobby and service. When we got to our room we were shocked at how small it was. They also do not provide ANYTHING besides a room. No fridge, water nothing. We have stayed at very nice resorts, like the Umstead in Cary and were given expensive bottle water, at no charge, enjoyed a flat screen TV, sunken tub etc. This room was a joke. An old, run down TV, the tub was VERY small and not even clean. The bed was actually so worn out that it was slanted downward. We did let them know via comment card how unhappy we were. After reading all of the other reviews, I do not know if these people just have never stayed at a fine resort but if this place impressed them they are easily impressed
