I stayed here on a company retreat 35 years ago and swore I'd never stay here again! The room I had then was very dirty and looked like it had been closed up for months and no one had bothered to clean it before we arrived. Glad to say that this stay in September 2012 with a group was much better. We had a large room with a small balcony, which was nice. There was a frig & microwave in the room, as well as a small table and chairs. Lighting was okay. Bathroom was adequate, but had the same issue figuring out the shower as a previous reviewer. Fortunately, I'm married to an engineer who could figure it out. We were in White Birch, which had a small flight of stairs to the 1st floor and a larger flight of stairs to the 2nd floor. Glad we were assigned the 1st floor, but would really be a problem if stairs were an issue. Lodges are scattered around the property. Our group banquet was in the Conference Center. Service was slow, some people were just getting their meal as others were waiting for dessert. Food was okay, but nothing to write home about. Cash bar prices were high. We did not eat on our own in the restaurant, but chose to go to town. Would highly recommend Diana's Delights on Main Street for Breakfast.
Would feel better about staying here again if going with a group. If returning to the area on our own, we'd stay in a hotel.
