Slightly outdated Service is painfully slow due to not enough staff. Waited 20 minutes for a drink twice:( Enjoyed the food and variety. Would benefit tremendously from an outdoor pool. No beach area on the actual lake to swim in. Spa treatment was terrific. Expensive for the available amenities. Andre

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Cons: Paid $275 for a room, had better rooms at motel 6. Rugs worn out, furniture had paint scraped off, bath tub had chips. Found empty juice box and t-shirt of previous guest under bed Food is average but overpriced, breakfast buffet was priced at $35 but worth maybe $15 for the 6 hot items it had available. Waitresses were friendly but unknowledgable in wines. No activities Pro's Grounds and Spa Manager goes out of her way to ensure happiness Nice property but way beyond its times as a resort, needs major updating
