    The resort and its staff are very nice. There are some great amenities, if you can afford to do so. The restaurants are decent, but very expensive for what you get. $9.00 for a side Caesar salad is ridiculous. When we returned the salad and...More

    Very spacious and cozy room. Beautifully decorated. Loved the fireplace in the room. The grounds were beautifully kept and decorated for the holiday season. I would recommend this place. The traffic in the area was the only negative, we hit it right at rush hour.
