I felt as though our stay was an imposition to these people. Soft drinks or iced tea was served warm and reluctantly. Nothing was left out between meals, so you had to make your drink request from someone back in the kitchen. It wouldn't have been so bad if the tap water was potable, however, the bad pipes and sulpher made the water undrinkable.
They only had about 12 beers and a couple bottles of wine for 22 guests on a four day stay. Thankfully we didn't have too many drinkers, so it wasn't a big deal, but not what you'd expect, especially since this is supposedly a revenue source for them.
The walls had pictures of Jesus in a western setting, and Mormon literature in the rooms, so I guess the rest shouldn't have been surprising. Some kind of LDS logo should be added to their website just as a courtesy for those who may find this a bit uncomfortable.
The food was good, the fishing was decent and the scenery was nice. The people, though not overly eager to please, were pleasant enough. It almost made us feel bad to not use the "gratuity" envelopes they left in the rooms.
A little bit more enthusiasm and customer service would go a long way with this otherwise nice little outfit.
