My husband and I stayed at one of the log cabins at Goldmoor. We really enjoyed our stay. The amenities were great! The cabin was cozy, and we enjoyed sitting on the porch. We had a problem with the TV, but they sent someone immediately to help resolve the issue. The breakfast was wonderful! We had it brought to our... More

Spent an anniversary weekend here in September. The Inn is absolutely gorgeous and the room was spotless. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. At dinner we had an opportunity to speak to the owner and it was obvious that he loved the inn and appreciated his guests. I do have two suggestions, the first for the inn, second for... More

We stayed at this property on September 22, 2016. We were here about 7 years ago and loved it. This time it was ok. We loved the room, the service was wonderful, except for the maintenance guy that decided to walk in our room right after we checked in. But otherwise, the breakfast in the morning was nice, they called... More

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon. Everything about our stay was perfect. Our room (Elizabeth) was beautiful and very romantic. Everything in the room was great - bed, blankets, two-person tub, fireplace, heated towel racks, little kitchenette with cute dining table for breakfast. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They were also very discreet. We wanted... More

This was the fourth BnB we have stayed at and is the best so far to date. It was amazing and the inn keepers were outstanding. Plan a conversation with them to learn all about their background and how they fell in love with the resort. You will too. Room was always clean and the grounds were fantastic.

The property is very nicely kept and the room was spacious. I would recommend this staying here if you have a chance. Only minor complaint is stay away from ordering scrambled eggs as part of your breakfast-very dry and tasteless even though asked for soft. I always think it strange how so many "Chef's" cannot make eggs....LOL.

Dear Richard thank you for your complimentary review, sorry about the scrambled eggs. That must have been an oversight on part of the chef. He is actually very good at preparing eggs of all kinds. We hope to be able to welcome you again. More
