The hotel lodge itself sits right in the middle of the lake area and state park, making it the perfect trip for outdoor enthusiasts. We spent the long Labor Day weekend at the resort and felt perfectly at home, though very crowded as many family seem to flock to the area. Though the hotel does advertise having all of the amenities of a luxury resort, there's not the uppity feel that comes with staying at nicer place -- all of the staff for the most part were friendly and helpful. There is the steep price tag however and I felt that if we had gone to another "luxury" resort in the area we could have gotten a lot more "bang for our buck".
My travel guest and I were very excited to try out the "coffee shop" that is located in a nook in the lobby, but were unpleasantly surprised by the agitated and inconvenienced attitude of the girl working there. Heaven forbid we order something! Outdoor activities are pretty much the only thing to do during the day at the hotel other than eat, so if you're not geared towards staying out and about from your room all day this may not be the place for you. They also could have offered some kind of evening activities because it seemed that the only thing other than drinking to do after 8pm was take a dip in the pool that looked somewhat filmy and overrun with children.
Our room was comfortable enough, but not anything spectacular and the tiling in the bathroom looked like it could use some updating. Carpets in the hallway also looked old and stained. The restaurants in the hotel were good, but again, nothing out of this world and somewhat overpriced for what was offered. I think with a major remodel and some updating, this resort could live up to the steep prices that are offered, but its just been occupied too many times without updating.
