Disliked: Cleanliness
We stayed in the tiny house and I found it to be not so clean. There was splash back on the toilet from someone vomiting...that was disgusting. The dining room had a dog wandering around, not okay with people dining. I found the food very expensive with limited amount and not very well cooked. Two green beans and four shreds of carrot does not warrant vegetables...four small cubes of potato and two small chicken thighs that were undercooked. Not happy with the food at all. I would not recommend this property.

Unfortunately, our room was above the lobby/dining area. We woke up from the movement of people and chairs/tables.

The staff was really nice and helpful but the food was def not as great as they claim nor are the rooms (we stayed in) old musty The bed springs were digging into our backs and we had some bug bites on us after the night (don’t think it was bed bugs) but the area was beautiful and once again the staff was incredibly nice and accommodating

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.

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.

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.
