    Excellent stay at this beautiful resort.
    The welcoming way we were greeted set the stage for our wonderful stay at this fantastic lodge. The grounds are beautiful and expansive and very well maintained. Our room was perfect, the amenities were first rate and the comfort of the bed and lush pillows were outstanding. The front desk brought us a delicious bowl of fresh fruit that we enjoyed from our deck overlooking the stunning view. We enjoyed a first-class dinner with the best service one could ask for - the food was to perfection!! In the morning, we enjoyed a full breakfast with home baked bread and the best scrambled eggs - and, again, fantastic service. The owners have done such a great job in remodelling this excellent venue and their hospitality was so warm and kind. We loved our stay here!!!
