  • Absolutely gorgeous year round resort! The suites and each building are impeccably maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful. The spa is relaxing and offers many very reasonably priced services. You can pay a day pass ($30 each adult) to use the hot tub and various amenities in the spa (not services). There are two great fire pit areas but seating is limited. A number of restaurants offering different foods. This resort DEFINITELY caters to families and children. There are so many fun activities that they can do it is a child's paradise. There is an amazing golf course and great bike trails. It is unfortunate that the "free" hot tubs allow children in them which is a deterrent for us. When we checked out the outdoor hot tub the water was murky and there was a family with 3 kids (one in a diaper) in it. Yuck!
  • I visited here for a 3 day conference in the early fall. I stayed in the colonial lodge. Rooms are spacious, warm and comfortable. Walls are thin so it is quite noisy. The grounds and well taken care of and it is nice to walk around. The rooms for the meetings were excellent. The food offered during the event was very high quality. The hotel catering did a consistent good job. I would definitely come here again.
