When I walked into my room, I was surprised to find that this could be someone's home. There were two beds, a night stand, chest of drawers, and LARGE flat-screen tv in the first room. The second room had a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and a wall of kitchen cabinets. Opposite that was a room with a bathtub; then beside that wasanother room with a half-bath.
Continuing on, was a full-size living/dining room: A table with four chairs, a sofa bed, two recliners, another television and a murphy bed in the 'closet.' The resort was designed for golfers who want their own bed. Any foursome would be quite comfortable staying here.
The room 130 offered free wi-fi. It was a 5-minute walk to the lobby, golf shop, gift shop, and breakfast area, but they will come and pick you up if you call.
The highlight of the stay was a 45-minute ride through the woods on a horse-drawn wagon to dinner. It was misting snow which really set the mood for the five-course dinner at the cabin. We stopped en-route to see elk which are owned by the resort owners.
Breakfast was from a menu; food was very good. For those who don't want to walk to the restaurant, you can call for pick-up service; also there is a short cut through the woods.
