Stayed one night, surprised my wife with a getaway. Nice and relaxing. Private hot tubs in room are nice to have. I recommend traveling with your own pillows. The pillow are way to firm, bed way to soft just my personal preference. Other than stay was excellent. We didn't get much sleep anyway 😉👍🏽

We took a cottage across the street from the original resort area and it was the most luxurious multi-room suite I had ever been in. Like the rest of the resort, it had a hot-springs spa on a patio with the room

I enjoyed the time there. For the price, a room seems built cheap and outdated, but everything else is great. The restaurant's food quality is over the top, but the service was slow. Overall, I'd recommend everyone to stay there.

I purchased 2 different nights separately and I couldn't get the same room so we upgraded the room and got a 2 story suite. It was a perfect weekend for some R&R, ordered wine cheese and strawberries, soaked in the jacuzzi Everything was perfect! Front desk was super helpful and nice to work with!

My husband I come every March for a relaxing getaway. Both the queen and king room/suites are well decorated, spacious, and private. All the dining options are good too. The grounds are beautiful and smell amazing.

Stayed 2 nights in the cottage and it is very private and spacious. It has a private mineral spa on the attached patio. The street noise can be a little much at certain times of the day if the windows are open.

The location of this hotel is beautiful, but the rooms are small and dated. My husband and I were both disappointed in the size of the room given the price we paid. The fridge was in the closet, the windows were super dirty, and the pillows were not good at all. We will not be staying again.

I came to this location because I have visited the resort strictly for the hot tubs before and thought it would be nice to get away from home and have a hot tub in the room that I stay in. So I chose my 6 year anniversary for this and I wasn't really impressed at all. Yes the room was...
