You will have two impressions right away. First, it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere; we took the "back road" off of the main highway, which consisted of a one-lane two-way winding road, so if you are not sure of your driving find the main entrance. Secondly, don't be deceived by what they call the "lobby", which consists of two couches by a desk. As we sat there we wondered what we were in for.
However, once you get to the room you will be impressed. It was very modern, quiet, and ours overlooked the river. You can go hiking around the grounds or just enjoy one of the quiet areas to read. Breakfast was very nice and service acceptable.
