Thank you for taking time to review. We appreciate the kind words and the constructive suggestion. We are working on improving cell service to our facility. It is very difficult due to being inside the gorge. We will keep working on it though. We look forward to serving all of you again soon.

My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 10 anniversary here. We stayed in one of the tree houses. It was wonderful. The staff was so nice and friendly. Beth and Penny made our stay special. Enjoyed the hikes and even crossed the suspension bridge. Beautiful area. Looking forward to going back. Maybe we'll even try the zip line....

At the start, I had an issue at check-in which worried me a little in terms of expectations, but it was resolved alright and everything from then on was lovely. I stayed in a jacuzzi room that was pretty...
