During the winter Chestnut Mountain is a ski resort. But in the off season they have a lot to offer, and a great view of the Mississippi river. We had our small dog with us and where delighted to find out that they have pet friendly rooms. They have two restaurants on sight. We always ate in the restaurant that...

We had won a 2 night stay through a ticket we purchased. I have to say I was a little skeptical after seeing some of the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised with our room and the food at both restaurants. Our room had the Mississippi View and that in itself was so relaxing and being able to have that...

Spent the weekend at this resort for a wedding. The venue for the wedding couldn't have been more beautiful. Not a detail was missed and it was probably the best wedding food I've ever had in my life. The rooms for the actual hotel were outdated, but clean. Staying together with all of the wedding guests at the hotel was...

Took the kids to the Alpine Slide in early September. Gorgeous, 85+ degree day. It was crowded, but the longest they waited in line was about 15 minutes. Some times there was no wait at all. For $30 per person, the unlimited all-day pass was very worth it. The employees were friendly and seemed to have fun talking to the...

I was there over Labor Day weekend for a wedding. Our room was very dated and had a funny smell. The grounds were nice and a beautiful view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would not go out of my way to stay there.

We were on a weekend ride and like normal made no hotel reservations. Usually not a big deal but it happened to be Labor Day weekend! We looked online for a place to stay and found this hidden gem. Great welcoming front desk clerk. Nice and clean in both the public areas and guest rooms. Also beautiful grounds. We will...

We had a great time on the Segway tour. Cost for four was approx. $200. It was for 90 minutes and the view of the Mississippi from the top was beautiful. We took a break at this location and were able to get some nice photos. The training time was very helpful and everyone got the hang of them quickly....

My rating is based on the 4th floor suite (10 person) my familly and I stayed in at Chestnut on 21 Aug 15. For the money we paid for our suite, the room was such a disappointment. The pull out beds are so old and flimsy, not even two little boys could sleep on them let alone an adult. The...

My wife and I just spent one night and we really had a good time. We spent a weeknight so the price was good for what we available to us. We spent time in the sauna, the hot tub and the pool (all of which were very well maintained). There is a main Restuarant that serves very good food but...

I cannot say enough about how enjoyable the entire staff was in helping us make our daughters wedding the best it could possible be. Not to mention the views made for some amazing pictures. One room had the AC broken but it was fixed in a matter of just a few hours. Nice big rooms. Awesome destination wedding venue. We...
