My biggest dissapointment with this property was that I was only there for a brief 24 hours.
I booked the HLI as a stopping point on my way to Charlotte. I was attracted to the beautiful grounds, their Eco friendly philosophy, the various acommodations available and course, the food.
We booked a large room in The Woodward House that was just perfect for us. It had a huge Kingsize bed as well as a twin bed, a gas fireplace, large bathroom and was decorated so nicely.
The Wi-Fi worked perfectly.
The Woodward house itself has a covered patio with lots of seating, a common area living room, dinning area, kitchen, computer room as welll as a tiny reading room for one with a chaise lounge and windows all around. This place would be great for a family reunion or wedding, it's like a very nice home with a lot of bedrooms!
The entire property is wooded and the grounds are beautiful. As a matter of fact, while we were there, the landscaping in several areas was being worked on, true some of the open areas had dry grass etc, but this area has experienced a drought for many months so you can hardly blame them for a little less green in the middle of the summer......
The lake was so peaceful, I wish we had had time to take out a canoe or a paddleboat! They also have a huge inground pool that we used, cool, clean and grass all around.
The meals at Seasons were outstanding and well presented, even the included Breakfast Buffet was a delight, it would rival just about any breakfast I have had anywhere.
We did not notice any noise or disturbance from other homes nearby and all in all we found the property to be very quiet and peaceful.
The staff that we came in contact with were always helpful and warm and certainly never less than polite.
We look forward to spending a long weekend here the very next time we have an excuse to go to Charlotte.
