Spent a night here for a business trip, because I figured why not. The hotel staff was great the rooms were not as big but still great.

It was our first date night for 2017 and we couldn't have picked a better location. We upgraded to a lakeside cottage with charming views. Drinks at the Decoy were a perfect way to start the night! Only suggestion is the update the recreation area with more trending activities.

This resort is exceptional. It is quiet, relaxing and surrounded by stunning views.

We flew to CA from Illinois for a family wedding, and were treated very well, from the reservation over the phone through our checkout four days later. We booked on Cyber Monday, which gave us savings on the room, and we were not aware of that; it was offered to us. Thank you for the deal!

I couldn't believe how sweet all staff was from the moment I checked in. Tanner was very friendly and professional. My room was right on the lake and was so beautiful. The resort offers great activities and onsite restaurants. I can't wait to visit again.

Secret enjoyable change from the regular chain places to stay. Remodeled nicely. Staff helpful and friendly. Secluded private setting. Unfortunately, we were kept awake by guests one floor up and one door over. Could hear them as if they were in our room.

Great rooms, clean and nice. Great views, the lake and its activities are nice. Good location, not far from the town but you still feel like you're somewhere else. Good price for a great nice and quiet staying.
