This is our 4th stay at this property and it never disappoints. The location is gorgeous and a nature lovers paradise. The hotel is modern boho at it's best and has amazing outdoor soaking tubs with an attached lux spa. The staff is friendly and helpful and it's nice that you can purchase grab and go snacks and drinks by the front desk which is really convenient since there is nothing around for miles. The rooms are extremely comfortable with lovely bedding and nice toiletries in the bathroom. The only thing we wish was slightly different is that the dinner menu offered a couple of choices that were not so conceptualized - i.e. a bit more basic - we stayed for two nights and on the second night it would have been so nice to have something more "bistro-basic" as opposed to a fancy meal. Regardless, we really love staying here and look forward to our next visit this summer.

The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. We were able to enjoy the hot tub and were thrilled to see the Northern Lights right from our hotel.

It was a great hotel for us, for a 1-night stop during the winter. It was very clean and everything worked very nicely. The hotel feels new or new-ish, so it seemed all to be in great condition.
