We booked a night's lodging at WRR on spec, based on this site's reviews. One second after entering our lodging, we were trying to think of ways we could stay longer (alas, we couldn't so so.) We were upgraded several levels, but that alone isn't why we were so pleased with our stay there. It's close enough to Winthrop for meals and such but is by the river (very short walk) and deeply enough embedded in nature to be a lovely retreat setting. We didn't use the pool or hot tub as we ended up in a cabin with a jacuzzi. The cabin's kitchen surpassed sufficiency for cooking dinner. We sat on the upper story deck and listened to the river and rustling leaves. We were graced with a calico cat who thinks that cabin is her home. Both one of the owners and her daughter were gracious and hospitable. After one night we felt like we'd had several days' break. My husband hasn't slept that many consecutive hours in a very long time! We'll be back.
BTW - the gravel road portion off the secondary road isn't that long, and wasn't any problem for our rental car. It's a driveway!
