If you are a golfer you will love this resort. Even if you are not a golfer, the scenery is breathtaking. You can hike, bike, walk and of course golf. I spoke with Zak on the phone before our trip. He was very helpful. We were looking for two adjoining rooms, as we had our son with us and did not want him to feel left out. (he is 17) We stayed at the Hilltop lodge. It was the top of the line of what they had to offer. Our two bedroom suite had King room with kitchen and dining room/living room area. Our sons room had two queen beds and kitchen area. The lodge area attached to the Hilltop units was awesome. Lots of room with a 12 person dining area, bar area to set up if we wished, huge fireplace and lots of lounge area. Perfect for a larger family getaway. I think there are 6 units total in the Hilltop section. They have many options for accommodations from budget to deluxe. Depends what you want. The two golf courses were challenging, and scenic. Breakfast was at the main lodge, 8.00 per person, quick easy hot basic buffet. Coffee , they had basic black. cappuccino and more. Dinner at the main lodge was expensive but ok. Overall would recommend this resort.
