Could not have loved my stay more. My fireplace room was cozy and enjoyable. Dee at the front desk was so helpful. The desk also had champagne and wine, the spa was relaxing, and the slide was really fun! I am told the restaurant should be open by summer so I will def be back then.

I took an overnight trip with my family in February, our first “trip” since last year. I was extremely disappointed to find that the amount of people allowed at the pool was not the “40 percent capacity” as advertised. We were the second family to arrive when the pool opened, and watched as the lifeguard sat in the corner and all the chairs and… Read more
I took an overnight trip with my family in February, our first “trip” since last year. I was extremely disappointed to find that the amount of people allowed at the pool was not the “40 percent capacity” as advertised. We were the second family to arrive when the pool opened, and watched as the lifeguard sat in the corner and all the chairs and the pool began to fill up. My family huddled in the corner of the cold pool to attempt to distance ourselves, as masks in the pool aren’t really an option. We stayed for a very short time, much to the dismay of my toddler, because we felt very unsafe. We ended our trip early, and when we explained why, the clerk at the desk did not acknowledge our concern and wished us a nice day, and of course took the nights deposit. I wrote to the hotel, not one person has replied. I feel very taken advantage of and would not recommend staying here. Read less
