My husband and I visited in late August for the first time and found the property, staff, and location of this resort wonderful. We did stay in one of the older town house units and though comfortable, spacious and well equipped, it was ready for some attention in terms of window/door maintenance and decor updates. Compared with the newer units, they were quite dark and a fair distance from the pool and main Inn which was about a 10 minute walk away.
We found both the main dining room and tavern on site to be quite expensive for food that we considered somewhat mediocre and bland. We'd recommend other establishments in the area for more favourable dining experiences. The atmosphere and serving staff in both though, were great.
Our major disappointment was the distance away from the pool and main resort. Though it was a pleasant walk, it was further than we would have anticipated and would have been difficult if we'd had young children with us. The other related concern was the deck was not particularly user friendly in summer because of the bright sun and no umbrella. The pool area had only two of four
patio umbrellas in working order which was unfortunate because of the hot weather.
All that being said, we would definitely return but would request a newer town house unit. It's well worth a visit to this scenic and unspoiled area....lots to do and enjoy!
