I stayed with two friends, we had a two night stay with one evening meal and a spa treatment. The hotel was clean, the room comfortable, the outdoor hot tub was great because the weather was excellent. The food in the restaurant was great.

View from our window, was magnificent (see photos). Great and friendly staff, they made it a home from home and the food and service in the restaurant was second to none. Anytime we're up that end of the country, it's the only place to stay. Can't wait till were up that way again.
