8/10 Very good

Very scenic and relaxing. Good value for the price of suites for a large family. Not much to do in the summer. Ropes course, mountain coaster and water park. Not much else. But really beautiful outdoors.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved, loved, loved our stay!
We had an amazing time and the property/surroundings were beautiful! My four sons, husband, and I were very comfortable in our spacious room. It was very clean and decorated nicely. It was close to all of the activities we wanted to do offsite (ziplining, hiking, sight-seeing) and we had a blast in the indoor water park which was perfect for any age! We will definitely be back!
