Not a culinary experience
We chose this hotel for the culinary experience. The main restaurant was closed the Tavern was mediocre to bad food. Our room was not ready at check in time. The indoor pool was closed. The room coffee was left for only one person to have caffeinated choice. No one helped us with our bags. The room and the pool were clean and nice as expected.

Return trip
This is our second time staying. It’s a delight to have a fantastic restaurant on site. It’s peaceful and the staff is always very accommodating.

Could have been better
Beautiful location, friendly people. But busted up maintenance (cheap plastic adirondack chairs that were broken, no hammocks, second-rate pilled sheets). Also very spendy, and the additional "resort fee" they tacked on each day was excessive.

Lovely setting. Unique, spacious rooms. Many amenities. I wish I was able to stay for more than one night to enjoy some of what they offered.
