so sad unable to stay at this fine lodge

We were unable to stay; my husband has cancer & it did not work out. He was not feeling well, & it was too short of a notice to cancel.:(

4/5 Good

Everything was great except the price. $30 for a 3 yr old to eat a couple pieces of fruit off the buffet was a bit much

I reserved a room with the bunk beds but I didn’t get them because they over sold them but no one told us we found out when we walked into the room. Very disappointed I would have selected something else.
