What a great place to see the fall colors in Jo Davies county! We stayed at the Chestnut Mountain Lodge and had a room overlooking the Mississippi River. The resort was just fine. Not fancy, but friendly.
But the sunsets were to die for! My husband and I walked the bike trails. Saturday evening, after a long day of sightseeing in town, we took a bottle of wine and sat on a grassy ski slope, savoring the spectacular sunset until the stars came out.

Looking at the website, I was impressed by the way the Chestnut Mountain Resort appeared. My husband and I had planned a getaway for our anniversary, and we made reservations for this hotel. When we checked in we walked up to our room, all the while smelling a horrible "boiled-vegetable" smell. We tried to convince ourselves that it was the nature of the ski resort. The room was an even worse smell! The carpets were filthy. There was a sign that said the toilet had been sanitized, but I have my doubts. We tried to chalk it up as we're easygoing people, and went down to the pool area to enjoy the hottub. Much to our dismay, the hot tub was dirty and cold and was clearly out of order. I went to the front desk and was told that it had been broken for a few days but the part was on its way. We did not have a very pleasant stay at Chestnut Mountain. Did I mention that they do not have comment cards?

I went there about two/three years ago and I had the best time ever! The slopes are just the right size for beginners or experienced people. The resort was really nice too! They have nice rooms and also a nice pool and a jakuzzi. I went there with a couple friends and we had the best time, lots of fun and lots of things to do.
