“Tim Gillis Band Weekend”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

I attend the Tim Gillis Band Country dance weekend twice a year at the Honors Haven resort. The rooms are clean, perhaps could use an upgrade or new furniture, although the rooms are clean the things in them are oldish. However, this review is more about the wait an hotel staff.
Every time we, my group of dancers, goes to Honors Haven for meal time we always request Andrea. She is ALWAYS the best! She is attentive, kind, helpful and eager to be just be all around cheerful... She is THE BEST! And the new hotel/wait staff manager is just as helpful. They are kind and accommadating. This part of our experience is what , in part, keeps us coming back year after year...

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. The landscape was nice but the exterior of the buildings looked very dated. Beautiful lobby. Nice staff at desk. Was told to drive around to side of buildings to get to our room - a bit confusing when looking for the correct side entry. Room was pretty large compared to regular hotel rooms. After settling in we decided to check the place out. Due to interior construction we could never find our way around. We actually had to go up a floor to walk around the work, then down again. We couldn't find the indoor pool area and then was told the easiest way was to walk outside to go back in to the pool. Thankfully it is a mild February. When we got there there were 100's of high school aged kids in the pool/hot tub area! They were kids from Brooklyn and the Bronx on their class trip! Not so romantic.
We went for dinner in the dinning room and the kids were there. They were pretty loud, but not too bad. They sat us toward the rear of the dinning room so it wasn't that bad at all. The food was suprisingly good for all the people they were cooking for. Buffet-style.
We hiked behind the resort and found the Nevele waterfall - spectacular. The grounds and lake were wonderful, as were the hiking trails.
We were told at the front desk that the high school kids were not allowed in the pool area at certain times, so we took advantage of that. The pool was warmer than most I've been in and the hot tub was excellent. The sauna was also the best I've been in.
Finally, the staff was very professional and nice. I wasn't thrilled when we inquired at the front desk about their advertised horseback riding and the young woman told us that WE had to call the stable to make an appointment - felt that she should've done it for us, instead of writing down the number on a piece of scrap paper, but NOT a big deal at all. We did ride for $40 ea. and it was great. Nice people at the stable.
Overall, this was a GREAT trip. It wasn't the romantic getaway we were hoping for, but it all turned-out well in the end.

Room Tip: If there are school trips there, ask for rooms away from them (which they did for us without asking...

We go here twice a year as part of a dance convention and I must say I look forward to it each time. The food is fantastic, our convention hosts buffets which are just delicious especially the shrimp and also the wontons :-)

The hotel has been refurbished in the last 2 years and I know they are still working on some rooms, the pool is lovely, so relaxing just laying in the hot tub.
The hotel has a golf course with a lake view in the mountains and has a perfect setting day and night. I always try and take a walk up to see the waterfall (not far at all) and take some time to breathe in the fresh air.

Staff are always smiling, helpful and courteous.

If you just want to get away to relax, sit and read a book, lay by the pool, maybe play golf or hike - this is the place for you. I can't wait to go back in April. :-)

Food is typical American; clean and safe building; very friendly staff; waterfall is definitely worth of walking up the hill; pull is OK; sauna is excellent. Overall, right place for a couple of days vacation in December/ January.

My best friend and I visited Honor's Haven for the Relax and Rejuvenation package with Chun Shim. Within a day of making our reservation, we received an e-mail from Chun asking what we were looking to get out of our stay. Chun then created a custom schedule for us ensuring that we enjoyed our visit as much as possible. We greatly enjoyed our time with her and she gave us a whole new way of looking at our lives. We are just hoping we can keep up with what she taught us...at least until we are able to get back for another visit.

The only improvement I could suggest is to have more meal choices that go along with the dietary recommendations that Chun made.

Room Tip: I know some of the other people commented on noise issues - I brought a sound machine with me (I use...
