Hi AntonyaC1, Your review is greatly appreciated. I'm happy to hear our team made your stay an enjoyable one. It can be tough seeing the property here, and not being able to take advantage of everything that can be done during the summer months as you mentioned. I hope we see you again, maybe during those summer months so you can enjoy a round on our executive golf course.

The rooms are new and very comfortable. The beds were wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on our deck just enjoying the view. The service at the desk was friendly and extremely helpful. This is the only place we will stay when going back.

Is the Glacier Aqua Spa pool included in the room rate? I couldn't tell from their website.

"amazing view"
"Every room has a view, second floor has easier access (no steps)."
"Ask for a top floor, if you don't want to be bothered by your upstairs neighbours!"
"Buy the hot springs package! It's cheaper than paying for the 2 separately."
"All rooms face the lake. No bad location."
