We had 4 nights booked here but left after the first night when alternate lodging became available in the park. We stayed in cottage 708, close to the main lodge. The day we arrived there was a power outage throughout the park. The main lodge had a generator so the rooms were not affected, however all the cottages were out of power and we had to make due with a portable lantern, sifting around in the dark.
service (concierge, valet, even their newsletter is better than the other park properties)
atmosphere (relaxed civilized whiff of old money luxurious vibe)
outrageous value (in any other part of the world the accommodations would be on par with a 2 1/2 star motel)
Staff was all very helpful and friendly. There was live piano in the great room for tea time and at breakfast in the dining room, guests hung out outside and in the common areas. You could imagine the same scene from 50 years ago.
Our cottage was spacious with an outdated decor, comfortable beds. As long as you didn't think about it costing over $500/night all was fine.
