    Lodge in the wood! Really romantic. The only bad thing was the poor internet connection.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Room comfort

    Not a good place to stay in a beautiful location.

    The young lady at the reception desk was very nice and tried to be helpful but didn’t have much to work with. WiFi ranged from didn’t work to very slow, no TV, no basic amenities in the bathroom, metal floor in the shower was very slick, bugs in the bathroom, the sink had individual hot and cold faucets that were so close to the back of the sink it was difficult to wash your hands. Walls are very thin, no sound proofing and got maybe 3 hours of sleep because of the loud snoring in the room next to ours...this place could have been a great place to stay but until the owners address these issues, I would recommend some place else!!
