I was there for a Basket Conference. It was a nice feature to have a shuttle to go get dinner each night. Some confusion with payments at checkout. The staff could use some math lessons.

I love this place! Great views, peaceful setting and the staff is wonderful. My wife and I have also stayed here over Labor Day Weekend in both the Lakeview Hotel and the Windcliff condos. Both are very nice.
