We stayed in one of the fireplace mini-suites in October 2010. It was ideal for us: The resort is adults only, it's close to a park entrance, and the room had a small kitchen. We could leave before sunrise, do whatever photography and hiking we had planned for the day, and come back to a cold drink, a warm fire, and a movie on the DVD player. Most days we were too tired to get cleaned up and eat at a restaurant. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a simple meal, and the full sized refrigerator let us store picnic supplies. If you want a great view, you might be happier with one of the other rooms. Everything except the fireplace mini suites has a view of the stream that flows by the property. The mini-suites looked at an empty pool, but having a small kitchen and fireplace more than made up for it. The room prices were very reasonable, and the people who own the place are so friendly. They keep a supply of books, puzzles, and movies in case of rain.
