Went up there to check things out planning for trips to come. Food was good and plentiful but they didn't seem to understand how to serve it - had to ask for silverware and utensils 3 times. When we got ready to pay the wrong ticket was there because I think the couple that ate before us just got tired of waiting for the check and left. Another group came in and one lady was told restrooms for customers only when she was obviously planning to have a meal. Its not like this is someplace in the middle of the big city where bummy street people were wandering in.
None of this seemed malicious but like they don't know what to do.
Things were kind of ratty and uncared for inside which was sad because it looked like a place with great potential. Example, a new table cloth is less that $2 some places, not trying to be picky but it didn't sell the place.
Cabins looked cute from the outside but when we inquired it felt like we were being warned off- quote: "They're pretty old and run down inside."
I get "rustic" have done it many times and a cabin doesn't need a whole lot to be a haven if you have the right attitude. Everything is gravy after warm cozy & clean but I won't ever know because they didn't seem interested in selling me on the place.
If this was an employee I was dealing with (off season doesn't care?) then what did the owners do to make them want to run off business? If this was the new owner then it's even more confusing.
I have sleeping bags and camping gear, an RV and many friends/family that like to get away often (we even have $$$) so I'm not sure why you would print fliers and create a website if you don't want customers.
Went there open minded and ready to be excited and they just didn't even try. Maybe there's some secret club I don't know about because I'm not a local. At least it was a nice drive and I found out before it was an embarrassing disaster. I hope they do get it together because it's a pretty place that deserves to be loved.
