I love this place. And I plan to go back at least two (or three) more times between now and when we move to Black Mountain, NC. The folks who own the place are wonderful, and the rooms are great, and the location ... divine.
I guess if I had any "negative" to mention it would be that the internet is rather slow and cell phone signal pretty slender — but maybe that's a POSITIVE. Maybe when you are somewhere this beautiful (and probably with someone you love), maybe you shouldn't be checking your stupid phone all the time.
One bit of magic stands out in my mind especially clear from our last trip. The STARS. Oh, my, god. The stars we saw those nights in early November. I've never in my life seen such a sky. Easily 5X as many stars as we can see in North Dallas even on the clearest of nights. Maybe 10X as many. We could see the actual Milky Way! Truly, truly magical.
