Friendly and helpful staff at reception. The unit had excellent rooms for family setup. The resort is situated in a perfect location with a lot of nearby attractions. My kids loved it a lot that I had to extend our stay to one day more.

Dear Greg, Thank you for the review and glowing report. In reality we do live in a forestry region and the noise from the mill is a part and parcel of the situation we find ourselves in. Regards Walter
