8/10 Very good

I didn't fully understand before getting there how much it's like a rustic summer camp more than a hotel. Then the labyrinth and chapel make sense. I would like to have a clock radio in the room for a wake-up alarm. Also soap and shampoo. The trail beside the lake is wonderful.

2/10 Poor

Terrible !! Not Covid safe - not comfortable
This place is religious retreat and not a hotel/motel. It should never be listed on a hotel booking site because it is not a hotel. I was shocked when I arrived to find the room I paid $100 per night for was actually a room in a shared 70's style house with a shared bathroom!! A shared bathroom in a pandemic ! Really! How many health orders does that violate? In addition the shared bathroom on my floor was unusable for 2 days because the toilet was plugged ? With what? By who? I had to use the shared bathroom in the basement of the house. I have a very bad back, going up and downstairs is extremely painful. I tried contacting someone - anyone but got no response. I guess they were too busy walking the labarinth instead of trying care of guests. I tried booking out and going somewhere else but it was Labour Day weekend and nothing was available. This place may function as a religious retreat but it in no way functions as a hotel/motel. It was absolutely shocking!

6/10 Good

Pros: - Beautiful lakefront property - Kind, friendly staff. - Inexpensive compared to other accommodations. - Clean rooms and bathrooms. Cons: - Despite claiming that they require proof of vaccination, we were not asked once about our vaccination status. It was not clear whether any other guests had been required to show their proof of vaccination either. - Several other "Expedia guests" were loud and extremely inconsiderate about noise in the evening. The rooms are poorly insulated for noise. - Parking was a constant problem. The site was used as a gathering place for non-guests, and we had to park elsewhere twice because non-guests had taken all of the parking places on the property.
