This was a disappointment. The location is quite nice with a lake view. We weren't made to feel particularly welcome, just handed the room key and told to take our bags to our cabin.
The standard cabin we were given was much smaller than we had been told by our agent- a quick word and we were allocated a bigger cabin at no charge. The new cabin needed to be aired so we were told to give them 15 minutes to get it ready: we can accept this, but rather than suggest we wait in the main lodge, we had to wait in the car.
When the cabin was ready we were asked if we wanted help with our luggage: a nice touch, only the offer was made by the young son who was smaller than our cases!
The new room was not good- it was not clean (the pans in the kitchen should have been thrown away) and it was freezing: we ended up having to use the cooker to get the room to a reasonable temparature. This took a while to achieve. The night was not a comfortable one.
After a fair bit of discussion, we decided to cut our losses and sacrifice our second night and check in to the Lands End Resort on the Homer Spit which, as it tuns out, was a great move.
Sorry- we don't like to give poor reviews, but in this case we felt that it did not meet our expectations. Basic we can handle- but we expect clean. Fortunately it did not spoil what was a great trip.
