Lovely room with a great view of the lake! Spectacular sunrises. Thanks to Stephanie Flenner for helping with our reservation! The infinity pool is beautiful and we enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet at the Turtle restaurant. It took 10-15 minutes for the shower to get hot water and there is no recycling on the premises. Rowdy folks pounded on our door... More

Great front desk gal. Gave us the Trip Advisor rate even though we just walked in w/o a reservation. Room was huge; a little dated, but it came with a view of the lake so we didn't care. Bar was AWESOME. The waitress took great care of us. Huge portions of food with great cocktails. Will definitely stay here again... More

Great facility, amazing location, but really dirty room and the whole property needs a good reno. The restaurant and staff took good care of us for the holiday weekend, but that room was gross. Come on folks, clean up your act and get some decent wifi and a fitness center.

View was great from room. Comfortable bed. Pleasant staff. On-site restaurant was acceptable. Wifi did not work in room; staff said it was because of thick walls. There was no breakfast on site that i could find. Not sure why I had to pay resort fee for a mediocre hotel experience.

If you enjoy sending your breakfast back 3x, never being able to fully eat it for $45, $19.00 steak and eggs that we ordered medium, son and I split and biscuits and gravy, it came out well done 3x, if you enjoy having your 16 year old showered by a drink that spilled when the waitress was carrying a tray...
