Wilderness Beauty
Beautiful place to stay if you love the outdoors and simple comforts. The bed was pretty tough which was a shame as we really loved it here by the beach. All very clean and a great team. The location is fantastic.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
It has a back to nature vibe with several unique abodes. The bistro wasn’t open for dinner and there are no eating establishments for quite a distance, so make sure you make plans ahead of time to eat before arriving or pick something up. For the price we would have liked a tv and a coffeemaker in the room.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Camp here, do not stay in the lodge
I stayed at the lodge and was not very happy with my stay. The room was very overpriced for what it was and had the feel of staying at a hostel. I felt somewhat misinformed booking this stay, as the room pictures indicated on the website didn’t look like the kind of room my fiancé and I stayed in. This wilderness resort is definitely much more suited to a camping experience, and I would not recommend staying in the lodge in a hotel room. It felt like sleeping over a friend’s house rather than staying in an over $100 room with very minimal room amenities.

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
The property has a very beautiful location. Very rustic and the yurts were very cute. Disappointed in the food service, however. I thought the prices were too high for the quality of the food and the service provided. I also thought it was pushy to insist upon a reservation for the "bistro". I appreciate that they wouldn't want to make food for more than expected, but I feel that's part of what happens in the restaurant business: you have to place a bet, and sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...
