We should have known at the bottom of the drive! The road was washed out and rutted making it a difficult climb even for my 4 wheel drive vehicle. Check in was meager! Not very welcoming from the start. Stayed in Love Bug #1 for one night. There is nothing resort about this place! We weren't looking for much but this was underwhelming! First inside the door was an air freshener that was SO STRONG. I wondered what smelled that bad that they had to have that there? We put it outside immediately. Cabin had what we needed basically (a bed, a bathroom and a small kitchen (2 plates, 2spoons, 2cups...) but it was shabby with a weird smell. Rotten wood portions on the cabin that should have been repaired. Big empty propane tanks laying in the yard along with trash and big piles of brush. There is a small deck on the back with a chiminea that worked. We scrounged wood from the pile and did have a nice fire that night. There was no tv remote and the small tv had hardly any reception. The smoke detector was hanging open on the wall and the batteries were gone! Not very safe. Ate in the restaurant which advertises itself like a fine dining place with a changing menu. HAHA! We were the only patrons in the restaurant and the waitress came up and informed us that they were out of several things. It was only 6:00 pm and they were out of things? The food was mediocre and rather expensive for what it was. I can't recommend this place! We did notice when leaving that the place had a new name. Hopefully it will improve under new ownership but it has a long way to go.
