Just a couple of years ago, I reported here how my family and I truly enjoyed staying at St. Germain Lodge & Resort. Well, we did...until this year.
This place is still a truly remakable place to vacation, however, as others have reported here on TripAdvisor, the new management at St Germain Lodge & Resport has an uncanny way of ruining a vacation. From the moment you check in, you have the feeling that the manager is bothered that your there, sort of like your interrupting her. And this is after having to spend some time tracking her down to check in.
Then during your stay, if you need something, or happen to run into her at the restaurant (Fibber's Restaurant) on the property, you experience a nastiness from her. Clearly a change from how Lois, (the former manager) ran the resort.
I can only imagine how people who come to the resort for the first time must feel. I tend to be a little more tolerant of her than some, however, its now come to a head. I'd rather take my $2,000 and go somewhere else to relax and enjoy my family vacation.
I hope some of the owners of the condos take notice to what us, the customers, are experiencing, as this affects their return on their property.
As for me and my family, we'll be staying elsewhere in St. Germain next year, and perhaps give St. Germain Lodge & Resort another try sometime down the road.
