This was a great place to stay. The rooms were good, the hospitality of the staff was great and extremely helpful. Had a great time staying there. I have stayed there twice so far and I am going back again in Sept. Food was ok. View was Awesome. Especially in the morning having breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the lake and the mountain.
