We checked in with a lady in the "office," a dirty, dusty, unorganized room, and a lady came out barefoot from a back room. After giving us the key, she told us that if we were going to the bar that night, to lock our dog in our car instead of leaving him in our room. She also told us that if we wandered onto the neighboring property, we would be SHOT. A weird welcome, to say the least. We went to our room, a basic cabin in the woods, which we expected, but the SMELL...like an old barn locked up for 50 years combined with old cigarette smoke....there was dirty green shag carpet and a thin sheet on the bed....we used our own bedding, which we happened to have in the car. I woke with a sore throat from the mildew. Also, the water in the sink ran brownish-orange. The restaurant/bar is dark, and smells of sweat and vomit. The food was terrible, salty and overcooked. In fact, the ONLY good thing about the night was the Monday night DJ playing raggae and the Jamaican food served after, which was brought in seperately by a jamaican man..delicious. The trees outside are wonderful, but that's about it. This place should have been $40-$50 a night, not $80.
