The redeeming aspect of staying at this hotel is the separate restaurant. It was good. The hotel had very poor internet connection. Our room had no hot water in the shower and the door and a/c unit were not properly sealed. Cold temperatures made that area of the room very uncomfortable.

Sorry for your unpleasant experience in the hotel. We are remodeling our rooms and perhaps we did not finish with sealing up the ac unit and door weather striping. 800-489-2091

Clean, nice staff, reasonably priced...would stay there again. The adjoining restaurant was fun, as well. Plenty of good food, country style, nice barbecue sauces to try, delicious fudge and old country store flavor. Snowed the day we were there, beautiful countryside and great location to rest. Everything in hotel worked well, internet no problem, and wake-up call right on time! I would stay there again.

No complaints. The wife and I stayed in one of the cabins recently, and found them clean and comfortable. Good, old-fashioned Southern friendliness. The deer that wandered over each night from the woods was an added treat, and added to the rustic experience.
The restaurant was very good; the pulled pork was as delicious as I've had anywhere.
We will visit again.

Hey, thank you Nedley. We appreciate your comments. Do try our restaurant next trip, we've been serving food since 1960, when our dad, Jim Oliver, started it. We're proud of our family recipes and food preparation. Making many upgrades to the Lodge too, you need to see these when you come back.

Very nice place and clean, in the rooms and the property. Friendly staff, very accommodating, staff was notified about toilet in the am upon departure...don't know if toilet was fixed. But the bathroom had toilet easily get stopped up, and there was black mold and ceiling falling apart in the shower area.

If you're thinking of a romantic weekend in a rustic cabin PLEASE avoid this place. When we entered the cabins we immediately noticed that the mattress on the bed caved in the middle. Overlooking that, I began starting the fire for the romantic getaway I had planned with my lovely wife to escape our home of 6 kids. Sleeping on the floor cuddle with my wife wouldn't be so bad. I'm an experienced camper but I had been warned by a friend that the wood at the cabins wood not burn. So with that notice I brought my own starter wood to get the night blazing. So I asked my beautiful bride to open the wine and get the jacuzzi tub ready as I prepared the fire. After burning through all of my seasoned pine starter wood, I realized that the reason they ask you if you need a start log at check in is because the wood for the fireplace is specifically purchased so that it will NOT burn and you must buy the starter log from the desk; which by the way, will not light the wood at the cabin.

After spending about 45 minutes trying to start the fire, my wife shrieks at the condition of the jacuzzi. The tub was extremely nasty with what appears to have a spilled drink all around the edges. After inspection, it appeared that the room had not been cleaned and only the bed was made without changing the sheets.

That was the last straw. After ruining what was setup to be a night of romance the finale was the extremely poor service at the desk and the slow response to make decisions. They refused to refund our money with the offer of another night stay. Who would want to stay there?

Don't go here, unless you want to waste a perfectly good date night!

This is the second time you have made these same comments and you are an obvious scam artist. You are just trying to get something for nothing. Sorry you are this kind of person.
Please find yourself another place to pick on, and another place to stay.
Thanks, But No Thanks!
