Lonely planet was our guide at the time of booking, the line "luxury suites and a rustic log cabin in a lovely secluded 14-acre property" were the information that convinced us. The price is high, but quality has a price ... and I must say the cabins are beautiful.
At this moment it's 9.50 p.m. and I don't know when the live music from the wedding in the restaurant will stop, so time for a short review about expectations and reality.
Columbine is one of the cabins in the Black Canyon Inn and situated next to the pool, the water quality must be good because the pumps from the filtersystem work all night!!
Annoying that the cabins haven't got a.c., so you can't close the windows complete to reduce the noise.
During the day the pool is an ideal place for children and their parents, but I would prefer an other place in the park. At the time of booking the management should have mentioned that we were located next to the pool and the restaurant.
The music stopped (10.00 p.m.) and I hope that these guests had a good time, but didn't drink too much. This is not the case and it's time to listen the the sound of ... pumps.
On the other side it's relaxing that you don't have to listen to the sounds of cell phones, no one can reach you and the wifi network is most of the time out of order.
