We stayed here 2 nights in March after having bought a Groupon package. We stayed in the newer lodge section and had a beautiful and large room with a balcony overlooking the river and tiny marina. It was so peaceful waking up to the birds and seeing the water. Everything in the room seemed brand new, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was also large, it was tiled, had a huge granite counter, a big tiled shower, and the towels were bright white and fluffy. To make all this better, our Groupon included a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, breakfast and a dinner at the restaurant which I will review separately. (We walked around the older end above the restaurant and peeked into a room which was being cleaned - it was also beautiful, but the bathroom was much smaller as noted in a previous review. The downside to the older part was that the halls smelled a bit musty so I was glad to be in the newer lodge.) The lodge had some extra public rooms, like what appeared to be a card or reading room overlooking the water, and had many books which probably could be borrowed. The furniture didn't look like your typical hotel furniture. Everything was so pretty. The receptionist (I think her name was Donna) was as nice as could be and so helpful with ideas of what to do in the area.
Smithfield was a cute little town, although the sidewalks to get there(5 minute walk) are all chopped up. We can see that they will be done in the near future. We were given the recommendation to get there via the park and that worked well.
The shops on the "boardwalk" are cute and fun to visit.
We had a great stay here and will return!
