10/10 Exceptional

I’m not sure what the negative reviews experienced but the staff members we came into contact with were so incredible helpful! They kept our bags for us, got the room ready early, offered recommendations, checked in on us when we came in for the day, opened a bottle of wine, etc! We couldn’t have been more thrilled with our experience here! The view from our room for the price was truly unbeatable! Do yourself a favor and stay here! Book a superior lake view room and enjoy!
