“I would never go here again, not even for an afternoon”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I do not know about the golf here, as we did not play, but the restaurant and spa were very poor quality and unprofessional. My friend and I were there on a Sunday, and the place was deserted. Depressing, creepy. The food was on par with a mediocre diner. We scheduled pedicures for two and it turned out that one woman was doing them both, going back and forth. It took her 21/2 hours to do both. The bathroom facility in the "spa" was more appropriate to a hospital than a spa. The quality was very mediocre and we were charged quite a bit of money. We could not believe that this place stays in business and that anyone would return.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

The golf course is shamefully overgrown and in horrible condition. The owner of the property knows absolutely nothing about golf and thinks the reason that nobody plays there is because nobody plays golf anymore. The specimen trees and plants all over the course have been planted in ridiculous places and all the plant beds are horribly overgrown with weeds. The fairways are spotty at best.....the rough and fringes are riddled with crab grass......the whole place has a spooky " vibe of decay". It was a crime to be charged 30 bucks to play the dump.

My boyfriend and I just got back from our trip. It was really nice. The woods are amazing, the gardens are breath taking and the service was even better. David was at the front desk and he really took care of us. He was very nice and friendly so it definitely made the atmosphere even better. The showers by the hot tub were just way too nice to get out of them and the hot tub was huge. The pool is very clean and large as well so everyone had room to swim. Our bed was the most comfortable bed ever. I just could not get over how comfortable it was and how big the king size bed is. No stink bugs in our room either. Not a single one! My boyfriend mentioned how he read reviews here and that one person really bashed the place but the GM replied and took care of issues that that individual person mentioned. It is nice to know the GM actually reads reviews and is not afraid to take criticism. It is so close to the city yet so far away from the noise and busy life. I would definitely come back.

The lodge hotel rooms are spacious. We have a king size bed room and there is still lotd of room. The lodges are located in the woods and thd area is very quiet. Our daughter got a massage and pedicure. She loved it. The outside pool is very nice. Trying the tavern tonight for supper.

My girlfriend and I went here for a night and I was very pleased! The room was up on the side of a mountain so we did not feel like we were in Harrisburg. The staff was very helpful and nice! Also, walking the gardens was very fun and it was very close to our room. I did not get a chance to golf at the golf course, but it looked very nice as well! If your looking for a nice getaway from work and life I would recommend making a trip to Felicita.

Seems like this place has some potential, but is poorly managed, outdated and not very clean. It kind of has a musty smell and too many stink bugs for my taste.

Room Tip: There are a lot of other hotel choices in the area, I can't think of any that would not be bette...

Went to for a day trip to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. The resort location couldnt be better. The golf course was wonderful, my wife had a massage that she enjoyed. The food was good. With the foundation this resort has it could be amazing. The facilities could be updated, the spa is nice, but not a relaxing escape. The front desk staff also is spa chack-in. The tavern has a wonderful patio that is under utilize and the food was good but again could have been better. The service was great from the wait staff.

With a few updates and revamping of the service model this place could be a crown jewel of central PA.
