Beautiful setting.

Beautiful property. The staff at the desk were wonderful. They helped us plan our days and made arrangements. I cannot express how much I appreciated them. They were the best part of the stay! We used a 10% off coupon for lunch that also included free dessert. We presented it before we ordered and told the waiter we were using it. When we finished our main course, the waiter asked us if we wanted dessert. We asked what our options were, he gave us options, and then we were charged $11.00 for dessert. I asked the waiter why we were charged. He responded that we didn't order one of the free choices! Really? I would think when the coupon is sitting there and I had told him I was using it, he would have given us the choices for the free dessert. I brought it up when checking out also, but to no avail. The rooms have a coffee maker, but if you want coffee, it's $1 per packet also. We had 3 meals on this property and I would describe them as adequate. I would recommend eating off the premises.

Nice hotel to unwind and get away.

Pros: Super clean & nice semi-private cottages
Cons: Wifi in the rooms
The hotel is very nice and secluded from the town. My only downside is that there is no wifi in the rooms; you have to be in the lobby, pool, or restaurant to get wifi. Not bad though if you're trying to get away and unwind.
